Looking back, 10 years ago when Mafia 2 was released. many people criticized it. some criticize it not being a true open world game which it should not be. others like me were disappointed the fact that it was inferior sequel to original but even if it was worse than original, it was still a great game on its own. story is pretty good, the gunplay is very solid and game has incredible amount of detail. however replaying definitive eidtion that is remastered make me reailized that game was one of the most underrated and overlooked game of its time. although remastered version is barely remaster but its also great way to revisit it.
For me, it was one of the best title of 2010 and was better than any of GTA game ever made. Its not a masterpiece by any sense or mean, it does have problems, it include cover shooting which i disliked but shooting in general feel great. it is vasly inferior to original Mafia (and all future Mafia game will be inferior to original one unless miracle happened) but on its own it was great.
so my friends, after remastered version of this game, that im playing for preparation of proper remake of Mafia 1. was this game underrated? overlooked?
