Differences between Mafia 2: Definitive edition and the original game

What’s new in the remaster of the second “Mafia”

Mafia 2: Definitive Edition is a remaster of the original game that was released on PS4, Xbox One and PC on May 19, 2020. Unfortunately, the reissue differs only slightly from the original – all improvements are cosmetic in nature. We will tell you more about them in this article.

In 2020, all three parts of the Mafia series came out as part of a trilogy . At the same time, the first part received a full-fledged remake , the third practically did not change, and the second was reissued in a remaster format. Its main advantage is the ability to play the game on modern consoles. But whether it is worth taking it to those who have already familiarized themselves with the history of Vito Scaletta is a big question.

The story of Vito and Joe’s adventures continued in the third part. True, in the triquel they played on the sidelines
