Story: Welcome to the Family
Tommy Angelo was a taxi driver and forced by two members of the Salieri crime family to help them escape from a surprise attack on them by a rival family criminal Syndicate. Although he was paid for the work he had done, he lost his job and cab after the day when the rival family targeted him for helping the two members escape. Later, Tommy got revenge on his attackers before agreeing to join Salieri’s operation. His jobs were to assist with the operations of Salieri’s rackets across the city.

Players used to control Tommy Angelo throughout the game’s single-player campaign in the 2002 game.
The gameplay mechanics were adopted from “Mafia III.” This remake also includes a “Classic Difficulty” setting, which is the hardest difficulty setting that changes some of the gameplay mechanics like, management of ammunition, and the response of police to crimes. There is another mode included in this remake of Mafia known as “Free Ride” mode. It allows players to explore the city on their own without any objectives. This is one of the best and additional features from the original Mafia, which did not allow the players to roam around the Lost Heaven.

Lighting and reflection are the major components that play a significant role in separating the remake from its original. As you know, the game is not a free-roam, so the time of the day depends on the story of the game. This is the best part of the game where the graphics are beautiful to watch even at night timings.
