Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven|
(hx) 05:36 AM EDT - Sep,16 2002
Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven is third person action game where you play the role of a gangster in an American city of the 1930s, and get a chance to live through gangster's rise and fall. Mafia is played through a series of flashbacks of Tommy's life. Tommy, whose taxi is taken over by a gang of runaway mobsters chased by their enemies. Tommy manages, thanks to his exceptional driving skills, to shake off the pursuers. Consequently, he is offered the job as a driver for Salieri _family_ headed by Don Salieri who controls the gangsters he saved. He initially refuses but when the pursuers find him, destroy his taxi, and nearly kill him in revenge, he reconsiders the offer and accepts the job. Tommy must perform missions for the Don and his consigliore to advance in the standings of the family, driving period cars around the huge area that is Lost Heaven. Tommy narrates the entire story in retrospective.
In Mafia you do a lot of shooting and driving, and you can perform many of the same actions that are available in Grand Theft Auto III. Well, Grand Theft Auto III and Mafia are quite comparable (the bright lights/big city idea, cars, pedestrians, traffic, cops, prostitutes, murderous thugs and similarities in interface), but I don't think that Mafia is a pathetic copy of Grand Theft Auto III nor does it pretend to be :) Mafia is more about the story and the feeling of playing a real-time criminal. The game is structured into different totally linear missions that you've got to take on in order to progress - get a mission, complete it, get a mission, complete it :) The crime ..(cough)...story must go on!
Mafia features over 12 square miles of this 1930's American city, 20 action-packed missions with tasks including from mob hits, car chases, bootlegging, shootouts, assassinations of persona non grata, bodyguard missions, enormous battles against rival hooligans, bank robberies and even simply going for a romantic walk with your love, 30 highly realistic indoor locations (airport, banks, galleries, restaurants, the harbor...), 60 historic cars (based on models that were on the road in the 30's) with realistic physic and finally over dozen weapons to choose from including baseball bats, knuckledusters, sawn-off shotguns, sniper rifles, Magnums or the legendary Thompson Tommy gun.
- an excellent story that works like an autobiography
- nice learning curve (good tutorial), though driving cars needs a little
- all the missions are challenging + I never found the game to be
- nice cinematic cut-scenes (rendered with the game's engine)
- smooth camera (probably better than camera in Max Payne)
- a nice map of the city
- fantastic chase scenes
- cars has realistic physics
- you can shoot right out of your car while driving + you can shoot tires
- you cannot destroy your car, but the car takes some damage - dents,
scratches, and broken glass
- a handy speed limiter that will keep the Police off your back as long as
you obey traffic signals
- all the NPCs have voices
- no multiplayer
- totally linear structure of the missions
- combat system could be better done, especially the melee combat is a bit
frustrating - when you have three people punching you, and you can't get one
- NPC AI isn't too great
- AI during gun battles can be a bit inconsistent at times
- limited save-game system (100 automatic save points
Besides the single player mode, Mafia includes a Free Ride mode where you can drive anywhere you want and try out the different cars and even earn cash by taking taxi missions, without having the restrictions of time and people pressing players to move forward in the game. Once you have completed the game, you'll unlock a completely new mode called Free Ride Extreme which gives you access to some bonus cars. All in all, Mafia is a good game that is worth your time, especially for those who love 1930's gangster theme and solid story. If you don't already own it, put aside the money because it is well worth it.

snd: 5/5 - excellent voice-acting, soundtrack fits into the game (ranging from epic orchestral moments to the sections of classic 30's jazz), authentic sounds, all the NPCs have voices

beautiful, all of the cars are modeled accurately, huge breathing city (12 square miles), NPCs have accurate and highly detailed faces, well done camera, crisp textures, nice lighting and shadow effects, nice cinematic cut-scenes

|God i hated this game returned it asap , i find driving a slow ass car 20mins each way is boring. Plus the slow frame rate on some good systems is bollox. One of the reasons i hated morrowind walk..walk..walk..walk..... this game is drive... drive...drive..drive fail reload at the start of the mission and bloody drive again|
|Dem||posted - Sep, 16 2002 - 06:11|
|I loved this game.... best game iv played in a long time.
and its not all drive drive drive drive drive..... if u get to where u are going, it mostly, (always) saves the game after the cut-scene..|

|The truth of when it comes down is stun the phasering part of it so that when you bring it to me it sounds as if it has but the graphics are well indicated to sign the small part of the cognated celebral injunction.|
|pete||posted - Sep, 16 2002 - 10:37|
|To : He-Man
yes, the race mission is hard, but if you do the following
Ram into the red car on the first lap at the first corner
dont press the acceleration button on the corners as this will spin the car
this isnt guarenteed to work first time, but a few attempts should do it.
I found it impossible, but it takes a lot of attempts of familirise yourself with the car. Trial & error. Practice makes perfect.
however, if you feel that you cant complete this then you could download a saved game file of mafia after race from
but its down at the moment (at time of post)
Hope this helps

|It sucks. It's way too much polished & the gameplay ain't that interesting either.|
|Homero Simpsono||posted - Sep, 16 2002 - 12:05|
|I'm loving this game!
Best single player I've played in a long time. The storyline is interesting, the missions (except for the first couple) have all been above average.
Only drawback I see is that you really do need a pretty high-end system to run this game at full glory.|

|I haven't played it at all.. BUT, it looks like a cheap copy of GTA3..

|Top game! atmospheric, varied.. i was hooked till i finished it... those that complain of slow cars are impatient. The cars improve, but i guess you will never know "BloodUK" coz you sent it back! The race is a bit of a bitch, i had to dig out my joystick to complete that level...using keys just too difficult to be fun. BUY IT!|

|Guys GUYS GUYZZZZZZZZ, it has no multiplayer feature and as soon as youve clocked it you'll dump it !
Nowadays a majority of BLOCKBUSTER PC GAMES come with the multiplayer FEATURE and this game would have been better if it had this option. However lazy lame ass programmers who cant be arsed to program multi player features shouldnt expect reasonable sales of the game, even if they are selling the game with the WORD MAFIA what next ALQADEA ?|
|Lard Ass||posted - Sep, 16 2002 - 15:09|
|a friend of mine told me that u never see a game where you play a character and who saves people from burning homes, rescues them from mountains, gives shelter to the beggars and resolve war in the world and there are no borders or boundaries without the need for security agencies and defence as we are all 1 human race and bring peace to the world !
my reply was games are not meant to be enjoyed or bring about a utopian experience or even political, they just waste ur friggin TIME & MONEY !!! but i like it : )
|Lard Ass||posted - Sep, 16 2002 - 15:11|
|Oh PC games are also meant to reinforce the DICTATORIAOL, EGOTISTICAL, UNJUST and BRAND dominated INSIGNIFICANT world we live in !

|Best single player game I have played this year. Graphics are jaw dropping. Story is compeling. I was hooked for 2 days straight before I finished it. One hour into this game, I unistalled GTA from my machine and gave the game away. How can anyone want to play a console crap port like GTA after playing this masterpiece.|

It's NOT a cheap copy of GTA.

|Great graphics, great sound, music is a tad annoying. The gameplay is stellar. (aside from the god-awful race mission) Oh yeah, to whomever was whining about the slow cars, period clothes etc: did you not look at the back of the box? It's set in the 30's what did you expect? |

|absolutely INCREDIBLE GOTY. I have completed it, and the storyline and missions are the best I have ever played. Its SOOOOOOOOOO much more atmospheric an involving than GTA3 ever was. BUY NOW!!!!!!!!! Gamespot gave it GOTY as well and they arent wrong, it really blew me away, best single player game this year for sure.|

|those that say that mafia is a cheap copy of gta3. you are a complete morons.
first of all mafia was in production, way before gta3 even saw the light of day. mafia is a great game with a story, it a real living world. not like in gta3 were people don't have any AI, gta3 is a cheap gaystation port.

|Anyone had any luck with the Free-ride Extreme option (unlocked later)? And any ideas on how to get "all" cars unlocked, I like the fast ones.
Only have two cars so far and they're both next to useless, an armour plated car and the "Crazy Horse" gotten from those pale white guys with flayling arms. |

|in regard to the race mission, its a piece of cake once youve got used to the cars (interesting) handling traits.
i did it after 3 or 4 try's.
i cant play GTA3 anymore, its more than not in the same league as mafia, . the depth of game-play is so immersive, 11 out of 10!!!!
ps, does anyone know any cheats?
the later missions are a bitch, and i need more guns!!!|

|fenix||posted - Oct, 09 2002 - 02:18|
|The is a really easy way to win the race, about 1/3 through the first lap there is a concrete barrier squeeze into the side of that (u will need to slow down drive to the other end of that road and theres a dunnial sign halfway, there's another one at the end, and a line going across that road, pass that line and hit the 0(INS) key or what ever u set reset car to, and you will respawn just before the start line cross it to finish the lap, rinse lather and repeat :D|

|ahhh, finished it nad trying to play the stupud extreeme free ride.....some of the missions can be difficult, especially when they dont tell you where to go and you just have to figure it out.
one more thing: when a pedesterian is in front of your car you cannot drive over him, i mean, hey, a guy walking can stop a car from moving?

also, the limited save feature is lousy. in the bldg when you go to collect booze, you have to skip a cutscene, climb up two floors, skip another cut scene, fight, die, repeat the whole thing again and again! bloody hell! and the docks is another lousy place - one mistake and it is back to the start of the docks!! gimme a break! and hey, gimme the cheat codes!!|

|Mafia rocks, it's better than GTAIII and it's not a cheap rip-off. Anyone who's stuck on the race - smash the european bloke up in the beginning and the rest is textbook. Just one thing though - my game has been recently freezing for no reason at all, very annoying, and I wondered if anyone else had this problem?|

|this is a very good game once you get past its flaws. and i believe the low frame rates are down to a limiter built in. i get exactly the same frame rates with max detail from 1024x768 all the way to 1600x1200. the country side runs much more smooth, but i would want the cite to run smoother, and some may say i have a top of the line PC. any 1 know how to turn this limiter off ??|

|Mafia is a great game. I don't think multiplayer would have done very well, because 12 miles of simulated city is just too big a 'game map' to run around in multiplayer with. For those whining, I found GTA3 to be "ok" but it was a pretty bug-filled port from the PS2. GTA Vice City on PC actually is up there with the likes of Mafia. As for Mafia, does anyone even know, Mafia was in production LONG before GTA3 was? Before Rockstar Games took old GTA and turned it from 2d to 3d, Mafia was in the works, with all the car jacking and blatant killing. GTA3, actually is considered a 'more modern day game' that was ripped from Mafia. Whatever GTA3 has, was taken largely from Mafia. I hate GTA3 but I loved Vice City! And I refuse to play the new GTA San Andreas. I'm not playing as some baggy pants wearing crack head. Gangs get enough 'glory' and glamorizing in the media and with crap-rap music, as it is. I dont wanna play the part of a black excon/rapist (but the skin color of the guy in GTA San Andreas is accurate - black LOL).|

|i think mafia is one of the best first person shooters i have ever played.It delivers what the gamer is looking for in an action game set in the 1930's.|

|Lot's of people complain about the slow cars, but actually you'll get some really fast cars in the end. The game is far from gta3. In gta u just drive somewhere and kill someone. Here you have really different missions and a cool story. And the racing track was easy since u can take a shortcut.|

|I'm playin it right now!I love that teh balance between reality and gamejoy is perfect. Graphix is really nice too. Nice effect and antialiasing. Lots of people complain about some driver error. U should try to install an "indeo" driver(search the net; the driver is free).
PS: Don't use fuckin cheats!!!!|
