More specifically the ratings people of Korea and Taiwan - which have rated both Mafia 2: Definitive Edition
and Mafia 3: Definitive Edition
. With Mafia 3 being a current-gen release we'd love to see a Mafia 2 remaster - it's tale of Vito Scaletta and co in the 1950s is still great so a bit of a polish to the visuals would be - perfecto.
As per our review
from back in 2010 - we praised it's focus on story. Back then Mafia 2 was seen by some as a riff on GTA - but it was never really an 'open=world' game.
Where a game like Grand Theft Auto IV is more about the all-encompassing elements of its sandbox design, Mafia II utilises missions, environments and gameplay as page-turners; interactive reasons to keep the story's forward momentum constantly doing just that: moving forward. But with the added value of telling a story first, the game's pacing is set at just the right speed, with dips and pikes added at just the right moments.
With Take-Two and 2K recently bringing a number of classics to the Nintendo Switch - including the likes of XCOM, Borderlands, and BioShock - we wouldn't be surprised if this rating is related to an upcoming Switch double pack for the Mafia series. On that note, we're hoping that a 4K remaster is in the works for PC too.
