Mafia for PC / Windows is, so far, the only 3D action game that revives the American criminal underworld of the thirties. The title was developed by the Illusion Softworks (currently 2K Czech) studio, creators of the award-winning tactical series Hidden & Dangerous. Plot takes us to America of the thirties, in the period of the greatest activity of organized criminal groups. We begin as a taxi driver, who is soon forced to work as a novice gangster for the influential Salieri family. The Don delegates us to complete a set of illegal jobs, giving us a taste of street shootings, heists, car chases, or even assassinations.

Gameplay

In total, there are twenty missions to perform with additional secondary activities enhancing the gameplay. The story of Tommy Angelo – the main character – is the backbone of the story. Successive missions in which we control the gangster alternate with cutscenes that progress the story. Mafia for PC / Windows tells an interesting, logical and well-constructed story with clearly outlined characters, moral dilemmas, and a morale. The game surprises with both perfectly realized cutscenes and, even more, with its rarely seen high level of design and implementation of a wide array of distinctive missions that keep us in front of the monitors for a long time.

Technology

The game takes place on carefully prepared maps covering over twelve square miles of the city full of bustling traffic and its more quiet surrounding area generated by the “Insanity 2” engine, faithfully reflecting the mood and landscapes of the 30s. There is also no shortage of real weapons from the period: Tommy Gun, Colt 1911, or the M1903 Springfield rifle and more than 60 models of cars based on real-life counterparts, including, of course, the Ford Model T.
