Greatest Gangster/Mafia Video Games Of All Time

The New Console generation haven’t got any good Gangster or Mafia Game. I know we have Mafia III But we all know how disappointing the game was due to repetitive gameplay and game breaking glitches. There is something just cool about playing as an underground cop that has to destroy the whole mafia cartel or just simply play as a gangster yourself. This is why today we are taking a look at some of the best Gangster/Mafia game. One Game Per Franchise



The Godfather is not a perfect game but it’s a hell of a lot of fun. There’s nothing particularly frustrating about it so the challenges won’t be insurmountable to casual gamers. Hardcores can immerse themselves in the mob world and enjoy the game as an interactive movie. – Cheat Code Central

The type of gameplay has been seen a millions times before. Its sole advantage is that it relies on an extremely powerful narrative, backed up by a serious cast and admirable music. It’s all about car chases, street shootouts, controlling diverse rackets and respecting fellow family members. – ActionTrip

Once you get past the fact that the film’s somber gravity will in no way translate to the console, The Godfather: The Game is as good a moral perversion as any. – The A.V. Club



Radical Entertainment did a wonderful job not only keeping Scarface close to the source material, but also creating a sequel to a movie that was never going to see a sequel. – Next Level Gaming

A worthy sequel. You get what is advertised – more of Tony Montana. If you want open ended crime gaming, get another game. This is Tony Montana you’re dealing with here. – Digital Entertainment News

Given the cliché of terrible movie tie ins, I was most impressed with Scarface on that basis alone, but it does become easier to recommend the game when you consider that Scarface: The World Is Yours would be worth a play through even without Tony Montana. – Boomtown




The massive amount of new features sets this game miles apart from “GTA: 3” – everything from interior locations, the combat, the graphics to the car handling has been improved, making this into a totally brilliant game – Total Video Games

No excuses, you’re gonna have to buy this. Unless you don’t own a PS2, in which case, get out of our Internet! – Stuff

Provides just about everything you’d want in a follow-up to an outstanding game. It’s bigger, badder, and better in almost every imaginable way. – GameSpot

A broader, deeper, and more addictive version of the brilliance found in its predecessor. And while it isn’t quite perfect and the graphics show some age, it’s clearly one of the best games released in 2002. – GameSpy



I walked into my experience of Mafia II with no real expectations other than hearing my colleague’s praise. What I walked away with after playing through the story was a sense of awe and amazement that I haven’t had since Alan Wake. – Game Chronicles

Mafia II has a good plot, rude, violent and with a wonderful narrative. But Mafia II is also a good action where the adventure and the free roaming create the perfect gameplay mix all together with the fast shooting and the realism of the driving sequence. –

Flaws and linear nature taken into account, Mafia II is a beautiful, gripping, engaging game-and where it doesn’t allow you to go is more than made up for by where it does. – Game Revolution


yakuza 0

Yakuza 0 shows how unique Yakuza actually is. Drama and humor come together in a setting filled with violent street fights. We all know the concept, but Yakuza 0 takes it to perfection. –

It’s a truly wonderful trick that Yakuza 0 plays, and rather than work out how it does it, just sit back and let this video gaming alchemy entertain you. – The Digital Fix

Yakuza 0 is a terrific game, packed with a simple structure but extremely rich in content. The campaign tells a long, deep, violent story, with two charismatic characters and a whole lot of enemies to fight. –
