I'd rather see #1 redone, was a great game.
Same. I remember being blown away by the story telling and ending of it all. Mafia 2 never grabbed me the same way but I heard good things about it. I just could never get into it the same way Mafia 1 had me.
Mafia 2 still isn't terribly looking. I mean the trench coat does flap... so it has that going for it, lol.
Mafia 1 on the other hand was as good as it got prior to physics being introduced on everything these days. I would love to see a full blown remake. With that remake however, at least fix the racing segment in the game, lol.
And the world setting was so much more involved/complete in 1 than 2 (never played 3).
Cruising down town surrounded by tall buildings, taking rips out in the hills/country side with expansive views. It felt like a small world, not a small sandbox.
Real cops who pulled you over for speeding was mind blowing for an early open world game. But it still had plenty of goofball in it. I remember doing wheel stands in the drag car then hitting an open draw bridge and flying through the air. And the race was brutal, I must've tried it a dozen+ times before I beat it, one of the few complaints I had with the game.
#2 felt like a bland,empty GTA clone, looked pretty for the time, but that was about it.
