    Does it actually look like a current gen game?

    Ever since I can remember, I always wanted to be remastered.

    The cut scenes do stick in the memory, particularly the car park ambush, the car grilles were all so fucking sparkly :)

    Great to hear, that gets me more excited than just about anything else regarding this.

    Fuck it, it's only 27 quid on cdkeys. Worth a punt for an old favourite.

    ACG likes it, good enough for me, I mean I was buying anyway but the fact that ACG and even more importantly oldschool like, will do for me. ;)

    And they all say the same : a decent looking game hindered by old-school mechanics and writing, with a few glitches here and there.

    But it's exactly what I'm after, something just to enjoy and stroll through, cruising around and soaking up the sights and sounds.

    The stuttering mentioned in the EG review didn't really surface during the story gameplay at all, but a quick blast of free mode really showed how glaring it could be at top speed. Bit of pop-in too with the larger/detailed structures but ehhh, I've never been bothered by these things.

    What I love are the little things. Popping tyres to make chases easier. The bloody footprints I realised I was making after walking over a bloody corpse. The little dialogues that begin just stopping beside someone. Quickly flashing a gun in someone's face to get them to back off/leave a car.....

    At work now, so it'll be the early hours later to see if the patch makes any noticable differences.

    Having never played the first game, I think it's a solid purchase for me.

    Did anyone else buy the Mafia trilogy a few months back?

    The definitive edition still isnít available for pre-load via the trilogy, but the standalone version is.

    Wtf?

    @Derblington

    Did you buy the trilogy or the standalone definitive edition of the first game?

    Really strange how itís not pre-loading yet.....especially seeing as it releases in less than an hour.

    Trilogy. Mafia wasnít even visible in my library, but 2 and 3 were (although I already owned 3).

    Somebody somewhere forgot to press a button. If it's working for the standalone, you've got to presume they've overlooked the trilogy option.

    All too common these days.

    The best part is that isnít even the way to get it!

    You search for the standalone definitive edition and go to buy it (trust me) - if you own the trilogy, itíll give you two options : pay £34.99 for it, or get it for free.

    Iím fairly sure this is a PSN failure as opposed to 2K/Hangar 13, but still.....what a clusterfuck!

    On base PS4, is it solid 30fps? The Mafia series is one I never tried but this remake looks good. Shopto do psn vouchers so could probably get this for around £30

    Loved 2 on 360 and 3 on PS4, so I've bought. Will start after work which will be in approx 40 minutes, wahey!

    Got some cheap credit too so money off, sold!

    Quick blast last night and this morning post-patch, and seems to clear up a lot of niggles. No more tearing in cutscene pans, far fewer micro stutters when horsing it in free mode, so yeah, definite improvement. Framerate seems solid, but I'm not the best judge.

    Then I triggered a weird slowdown/framerate bug in the church shootout, constant sluggish slo-mo for the duration. Could've just died to reset it, but it was actually quite fun.

    Just dropped through the letterbox (fecking Amazon!) with Saucerful of Secrets cd. So that will be listened to before any gaming takes place.

    Music>Games or anything else.

    For sure! Music is something I could never give up. No matter what I'm doing there will be music playing if possible.

    @Baihu1983

    Well I completed it earlier first time, exceedingly easily, for what it's worth. Made for a pretty dull few minutes to be honest.

    Edit; tbh it depends on the difficulty revel you choose more than anything
