  1. Apr 4, 2016 · Organized crime has inspired some of the best films and television shows ever – Godfather, GoodFellas, and The Sopranos, to name a few. And though a handful of games have tried, few have successfully captured the feel of gangster movies. But with Mafia: City of Lost Heaven, Czech developer Illusion Softworks has done something quite unique.

  2. Aug 31, 2022 · The city of Lost Heaven, a ludicrously melodramatic monicker for what is a red-tinted amalgamation of San Francisco and New York, is built to a standard we now expect from sandbox games.

  3. Mafia: City Of Lost Heaven Gamespot review. Mafia 1. Quite simply, Mafia is one of the best games of the year.

    Who hasn't fantasized just a little bit about being part of the mob. Some may like the idea a little more than others, but entertaining the notion of having that much power and influence can be a little appealing. More than that, the thought of living such a different life than we do everyday is pretty intriguing. Being able to be a part of the mafia without actually having to get your hands dirty in the real world is more to the point.

Not only did they manage that, but they also managed to craft an interesting, cinematic, and absolutely lovely journey through Tommy's mob life.

    Mafia is a great game with some minor problems that are easily forgotten once you get into the meat of the game. While I still wish that I could skip through some of the driving, it isn't anywhere near a big enough failing for me not to heartily recommend this game to anyone that likes action and especially those that love the depression gangster e...
