About the product:


The city of Lost Heaven got hit hard by The Great Depression, and the advent of Prohibition in America means lucrative business opportunities for mobsters. The Salieri and Morello crime families vie for control over Lost Heaven, even as its few honest policemen scramble to maintain order.

StarringTommy Angelo

Thomas Angelo's humble life as a hard-working taxi driver is forever changed after a fateful run-in with the Italian Mafia. Now he's doing jobs for Don Salieri and gaining respect in the criminal underworld, though his conscience keeps his ego in check.


You're the lead in this cinematic mob story, immersed in the world of organized crime during the Prohibition era.


Mafia: Definitive Edition is a faithful, expanded remake inspired by the iconic 2002 original, now with gorgeous 4K visuals and enhanced gameplay.


Explore an authentic vision of 1930s America in this expansive city and its crime-riddled underbelly.

In 2002, Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven established itself as an instant classic, with its cinematic storytelling akin to the greatest mobster movies, an immersive 1930s city full of authentic details, and tense action scenes that thrust you into the life of a gangster during the Prohibition Era. Now, the beloved, critically acclaimed original is being completely remade from the ground up as Mafia: Definitive Edition, coming to PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam on August 28, 2020, as well as the Epic Games Store at a later date. Mafia: Definitive Edition will be available on its own and as the centerpiece of the newly announced Mafia: Trilogy and its definitive organized crime saga.

Mafia: Definitive Edition tells the story of Tommy Angelo, a hardworking cab driver who's scraping by in the American city of Lost Heaven circa 1930. One fateful night, Tommy has an inadvertent brush with the Italian Mafia that showcases a life of reward too big to ignore. Now he's embedded in the brutal world of organized crime, doing jobs for Don Salieri's organization as it wars with the vicious Morello crime family. As Tommy, you'll have to establish yourself in Lost Heaven's treacherous underworld, where all is not as it seems—including who your friends and foes really are.

Rather than a straight port of the original Mafia to modern platforms, Mafia: Definitive Edition is a faithful remake that enhances the 2002 classic in every way, delivering an experience that's even better than you remember. The beautiful presentation, with stunning visuals that are 4K/HDR-ready and a sweeping soundscape featuring an original score, breathe new life into this vision of organized crime in 1930s America. Lifelike cutscenes present Mafia's narrative like never before, with Tommy's gripping story faithfully captured and expanded to give insights into characters we only got to glimpse in the original game. And the immersive gameplay has been updated to entertain newcomers and old-school fans alike, with added features like a larger Lost Heaven to explore, motorcycles introduced as a new vehicle type, collectibles to seek out, and much more.

"The original Mafia made such a lasting impact on how video games can tell serious stories, and we know how much the series fans still revere it," said Hangar 13 President and CCO Haden Blackman, who led the development of Mafia: Definitive Edition across Hangar 13's offices in Brno, Brighton, Prague, and Novato. "Nearly 20 years after the Mafia series started, we now have an amazing opportunity to introduce this beloved game to a new generation of players, and give longtime fans a chance to relive Tommy's story with a stellar modern presentation and new story elements and gameplay features."

You'll be seeing more of Mafia: Definitive Edition as August 28 draws nearer, and you won't want to miss Mafia: Definitive Edition's presence as part of the PC Gaming Show happening June 6, 2020. If you pre-order Mafia: Definitive Edition ahead of launch, you'll be entitled to The Chicago Outfit pack of stylish cosmetic items, featuring the Smith V12 limousine vehicle, Gold Semi-Automatic Pistol weapon skin, and The Don outfit.

Our Verdict

I remember playing the original game when it first came out and absolutely loving it. Now with this remake you get to enjoy this epic game all over again in full next gen glory. The story and feel of this game through you right onto the street of 1930 America and make you feel like "One of the family". Being part of the mob now is fun and you can walk away without any real consequences.

This is for the older gamer due to the content, but dads and older lads will enjoy this.

So, mafia definitive edition on the whole is fun to play, has a feel that brings you the mafia experience and has a great sound track. In places as with any game the game can feel slightly like a grind and a little repetitive but overall the story carries you along nicely. The AI in the game is very impressive and makes the action worthwhile, sitting still and just fighting from cover makes the AI try to flank you and pushes you to actually engage in proper combat tactics.

There is a free roam mode that allows you to explore the city, however it would have been nice to be able to have some multiplayer action. This is part of a mafia trilogy and at its price is good value for money.


This is a well-made, beautiful remake of the original and well worth it if you feel like going all gangster. I would recommend checking prices on the trilogy edition for even more value.
