The Final Verdict
Mafia III had serious potential but was let down by an extremely boring & repetitive storyline that was tough to get through because it felt like I was just doing the same thing over and over again. Issues & bugs are scattered throughout the game, and happened surprisingly early in the game which also negatively impacted the experience. Now Mafia III is far from a complete failure, there is still some fun to be had with this game but it’s not one I will recommend paying full price for.
+ Great setting
+ Amazing soundtrack
– Boring & repetitive missions
– Bugs & other issues
Final Score: 5/10
For one, this game is not directly about the Italian Mob. In New Boudreaux, a convincing facsimile of New Orleans, Louisiana, the Italian Mob is the dominant faction in the city. Bi-racial orphan Lincoln Clay has returned from Vietnam to say goodbye to his adoptive brother and father, the leader of the local black mob. Family comes first though, and Clay brings his military training to bear to help his family out of debt to Marcano crime family. Following a successful heist of the Federal Reserve, Marcano wipes out the black mob and takes all the money. A botched execution leaves Lincoln alive and ready for revenge.
