Very poor and lazy Remaster.

I agree. This "definitive edition" is unplayable for me with the audio issues.  People saying it's not an issue obviously haven't played it. It's apparent from the moment the game starts. Audio coming from one side of the earphone, audio out of sync and stuttering and that's only in the first cutscene.

The amount of bugs and glitches in this game is ridicolous. I had to replay almost all chapters at least once because an bug occured where i can't continue the mission. Right now i'm in chapter 14 and i need to give Bruno his money back, after i talked to him i'm stuck in an infinite loading screen. I allready replayed the chapter from scratch via chapter select, quit to the main menu, closed the application but nothing worked. I was so hyped about about the remaster but now i'm just disappointed.

Oh, whaddya know? A quick cash grab that doesn't perform well! 

It should have been a big red flag that 2&3 are out now with 1 not coming til August 28. Just a scummy way to try and get that lockdown audience's money.

Makes me even more annoyed that I missed it for free hrs earlier on the Malaysian store. Now looking at this, I don't think it's a good idea to buy it either

Don't mind TJ_Solo, he just feels the need to be a white knight for every game/dev/publisher that gets criticized, regardless of whether your criticism is valid or not. Thank you for letting people know this title needs a patch before purchase.

 

I am more of a realist, maybe even a skeptic when it comes to these kinds of posts. 

Not automatically believing everything a poster says is not the same as defending a company or every company about everything. 

Don't pretend to know me just because you might have read a couple comments that got you in your feels. I asked two questions. I didn't defend shite. 

 

Well if the criticism isn't valid then that matter should be regarded.

 

I bought about 7 games last night and have Mafia 2 in my cart. I am really considering it but would rather play 1 and 2 in order since both are getting ported. I am reading topics about bugs and trophy issues out of true curiosity.

the sound is just horrendously weird, channels not working, poor bitrate, total silence or cutouts in cutscenes...weird. A patch should fix most of it though.

They could've just waited till August, release it as a trilogy. But no...

 

Greedy bastards.

Thankfully managed to grab it for free earlier. Will wait until after playing the first game before starting it I think. Hopefully all the issues will have been fixed by then. I hope a patch comes soon for those who've already started playing it.

I mean, this Remaster was made by the same people who ported Shenmue 1 and 2, which was also bad ports. 

 

I wouldn't expect a fix for this unless the backlash is too big. I just hope Mafia 1 is in safer hands.

I've just started chapter 2 and I'm thinking I wouldn't hold my breath for an audio patch. I think this is just a severe case of last gen audio and animation.

 

We've been spoiled by the audio quality and superior animation/motion capture of the current gen.

 

I remember many PS3 third party AAA games having glitched audio like this.

Don't think it's gonna get any better for this game.

 

Then again, I've never played the original Mafia 2. Maybe I'm wrong and they've worsened the audio.

A mod locked the thread in the minute they pulled the game from the store, and now a lot of people are asking in other threads. But yeah, it was free in Malaysia store. It was.

 

Now on topic, yeah, this version is awful. I will wait for a patch. I don't remember any major issues in the PS3 version. I just remember my joy when I played it.

The audio is fine on PS3. And I'm pretty sure this is a PC port.

Well this is a bummer to hear considering I bought the $50 complete your collection from the mafia 3 menu figured it would be worth the $10 while the first game is $40 anyway... but sounds like I should’ve created that Malaysian account smh :/

How are you accessing this? I can't see this option at all on the menu? 

 

Edit: I figured it out. Has to be done on the US region. I missed the Malaysian store thing as well which sucks dick. If I had gotten that I could have picked up Mafia 1 as a physical. Guess this is the only option but I'll wait for a patch I guess

Any chance it was just their stream? No one else is showing the same problem.

 

Sorry about that, appears it was just their stream of it.

Well sucks to hear about that never played the PS3 version was looking forward to it, but it sounds like most of these problems can be fixed with a patch so I guess waiting out for it is the best option before buying.

Obviously the people who were responsible for making the remaster didn't give a shit about their own product.

 

They took the Ubisoft way of handling remasters. Just up the resolution from 720p to 1080p/4K, but don't bother to increase framerate or make any convenient changes.

Omfg are you kidding me? I had the same bug 10 years back on PC (So fucking agonizing to deal with..)

..I can't believe this is still an issue

My experience in first 20 minutes:

  • Sound is off and goes from the left speaker only. Patch should fix that.
  • Clothes do not have physics and are glued to the body - not sure if they will upgrade it.
  • Lightning in some parts of the game has to be fixed. One moment it is beautiful, and one moment you get junkie Vito who has seen some shit:

As @demonoutcast already said this is an old bug. You just have to earn money by selling/scraping cars instead of robbing stores. But still very disappointing that they even ported the bugs.
