Can't believe there's not more buzz for this. Loved the first two. I would have picked this up on release day this summer but a week before Gears? Now I'll wait.
Once it and Deus Ex hits the bargain bins I know what I'll be playing the entire first half of 2017.

Yeah, I have a feeling this game is easily going to get lost in the holiday shuffle. Watch Dogs 2 right around the corner isn't going to help either.

I played through the first game on the PC and found it really great. Second game felt inferior in every way, and the graphics especially were lackluster. I am liking the look of the third game though and if reviews are solid then i will be picking it up.

Re: Mafia 3 (2016) - PS4, Xbox One, PC

This and probably X-Com 2 will be my two games on my Christmas list this year. I absolutely adored the second one on 360 and played through every single piece of DLC (which is very rare for me). I'm really good with open world different setting type games (Mafia, Sleeping Dogs, Saboteur, etc.) so this is right up my alley.

Re: Mafia 3 (2016) - PS4, Xbox One, PC

I was going to start a thread on this but just assumed nobody would be interested. I remember getting into an argument with someone over the graphics and environments telling them that I thought Rockstar was superior - 2's graphics were very lackluster.

This one looks good though...story and graphics.

The original is one of my all time favorite games, but the second was such a step backwards that I'm taking a wait and see attitude with this one. Now I'm reading they won't be sending out any review copies before launch, which is usually a warning sign.

Re: Mafia 3 (2016) - PS4, Xbox One, PC

I'm getting it as I have the first two. But I'm guessing this will disappoint.

6.4 is my prediction from IGN.
7 from Gamespot.

6.4 at IGN seems pretty specific considering you have no actual idea if the game is any good or not

That's how they do the reviews.

Pretty Cool. I wonder how much they'll charge?

Holy shit! I'm sold (at least after the first price drop).

No early review copies given out. Not a great sign....

Re: Mafia 3 (2016) - PS4, Xbox One, PC

PC version is currently capped at 30 fps. A fix is coming, possibly by this weekend. It's still an inexcusable oversight.

Game has a washed out look. Not really all that aesthetically pleasing so far.

I've also had a couple random quits to desktop. No crash dump or anything, which makes it difficult to try to figure out what's causing it.

I saw the Steam review is 6/10.

Seems about what I'd guessed. I'm still excited to play, though.

Re: Mafia 3 (2016) - PS4, Xbox One, PC

I pre-ordered and plan to keep my copy regardless of the reviews. I haven't come across a game that piques my interest in a while anyways.

This will make for a nice PS Plus freebie for everybody to bitch about in a few months.

I like it so far. It's got some great voice acting.

Re: Mafia 3 (2016) - PS4, Xbox One, PC

I'm hearing mostly:

First 3 hours: This is GREAT

By hour 6: ugh, not this shit again

So, worthy of a rental, and/or major price drop.

Well, to be fair, that complaint can apply to every open world game. I think they nailed the atmosphere, the acting and the people you get to take out in this game.

Re: Mafia 3 (2016) - PS4, Xbox One, PC

A couple of things I noticed that I do not like about the graphics:
1. No reflection in mirrors or glass (takes me out of the world a bit).
2. Some weird light reflections in certain outside areas. I was driving over a bridge during the day and it appeared like I was driving through a cloud.

I had some posters inside a building/garage flicker as if they were lighting up... weird.
