Mafia II: Definitive Edition is a refreshed version of the second edition of the action adventure games series, released since 2002. The game is the responsibility of the Hangar 13 studio, which employs former Illusion Softworks staff (later known as 2K Czech Republic). The game is part of the Mafia: Trilogyset , which also includes a Mafia III remaster and a remake of Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven, but can also be bought separately.

Plot

As in the original, the Mafia II: Definitive Edition takes place several years after the events of the Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven. We are not going back either to Lost Heaven, known from the first part of the series, either to Thomas Angelo, whose story we followed in the first installment. This time we play the role of Vito Scaletta, returning to the city of Empire Bay from the front of World War II. The former (and forcibly conscripted) soldier has no interesting prospects: his father left behind huge debts, and the best he can count on is poorly paid work on the docks. However, Vito does not intend to follow in the footsteps of his parents, and he and his friend are quickly turning to crime.

Mechanics

Mafia II: Definitive Edition offers the same gameplay in the convention of the TPP action game as the original second part of the series. In accordance with the tradition of the series, a huge city (loosely based on New York City), full of interesting places and diverse districts and, of course, tasks to be performed, is at our disposal. This includes the main plot, where we get to know the story of Vito Scaletta and experience, among others, fights with gangs and police chases. During the break from the main missions, we can devote ourselves to side activities. The second part offered much more freedom than the first one and it is no different in the new installment. Stealing cars (over 50 models available), shopping in clothing stores and guns and fistfights are just some of the attractions offered by the game.

Technical and other aspects

Unlike the refreshed one, Mafia II: Definitive Edition is a typical HD remaster. The developers adjusted the visual layer of the game to the standards of the eighth generation of consoles by, among other things, boosting the quality of textures. This includes the addition of 4K resolution support and new graphic options.

Definitive Edition includes all Mafia II expansions from the Add-ons Package. This includes DLCs with new outfits and vehicles, but also three feature expansions: Betrayal of Jimmy, Jimmy's Vendetta and Joe's Adventures. In addition, when you buy a game you get a unique outfit and a car in the other games of the Mafia Trilogy set.
