    Possibly the worst?

    I still haven't finished the game but, so far, it's proving to be a very good game. The graphics are very similar to GTA III. There's a lot of fun in this game! It's well worth the money folks! There are some flawes in i... Read Full Review

    Mafia for the PC is one of the most beautiful--and occasionally one of the most frustrating--gaming experiences on the PC. At any rate, Mafia is always guaranteed to produce a reaction in the gamer, from edge-of-your se... Read Full Review

    Don't buy this game thinking it's going to be GTA:The Bootleg Era. It's much more realistic in every sense than GTA and is entirely story driven. In fact the only similarity it shares with GTA is that you drive yourself ... Read Full Review

    An atmospheric story driven masterpeice

    Mafia is possibly the best story driven 3rd person shooter ever. If you think this is GTA in the 1930's - you're wrong. The world of Mafia is rich with atmosphere and emotion - each mission you're sent on builds up th... Read Full Review

    Sometimes I feel this is better than GTA

    The storyline is the major point of the game.It feels like your playing a game and watching a classic film at the same time.This game doesnt focus completely on violence like GTA but it also have some nice moral values. ... Read Full Review
