Mafia III Game Review

Mafia III is an action-adventure video game developed by Hangar 13 and published by 2K for PS4 and other platform. It is the 3rd of all Mafia Series. The setting is in New Bordeaux, which in the fact is New Orleans.

The Protagonist is Lincoln Clay, a war hero, if not a veteran, who was coming home and start working for a mafia. But, there is a twist, the Mafia Boss betrayed him and kill his families and almost cost him his life too.

He is just barely lucky. After that, he was contacted by a CIA agent and offer him an undeniable offer, he helps the CIA to take down the Mafia Boss and by all means, anything neccessary to kill the mafia and all their networks. Then, in doing this massive operation, he recruits 3 other allies, giving them territory after he took action securing and grabbing areas which controlled by the Mafia.

In no time, he was building his own empire. Now, I have enjoyed playing this game and here are the Pros and Cons of this game due to my gaming experiences.

PROS :

  1. It’s easy to control, auto aim is very advance. I don’t need a lot of thought about how to aim my weapon. It’s literally just hide and shoot.
  2. Good graphics and story flow. It has multiple ends and you can control how you play the game with your 3 other allies.
  3. Car Racing. Some games took in New Orleans somehow always have car racing GTA-like, but it’s not bad, I can still enjoy the game.

CONS :

  1. Some controls are in the same button (ie. Square for open the door and square also for reload). I found myself almost died every time this happened.
  2. It takes a few seconds delay to make action from previous action in critical situation resulting in death.

When it comes to playing of the game itself, here are my suggestions :

  1. Upgrade your weapon especially the silencer which you will need to silent infiltration to enemy territory and police territory also, and smg (to make great hit on enemies)
  2. Upgrade your allies assistance including cut off the phone communication, calling bodyguard, and cars.
  3. Always do the side mission to increase money for upgrade and do the communication tap, it enables you to not killing some boss area but to make them your allies also, and you can gain significant revenue.
  4. Check your equipments before going to enemy territory, what’s best in one territory is not best in others
  5. Be prepare for surprise and excitement!!! Car Racing, Car Jumping, Intercepted by enemies when doing mission, and Failed a mission due to the above reasons.

Okay, Okay … That’s all what you need to know! Believe me, its fun to play this game,! Even now, I’m writting this review, I really just want to jump to my PS4 and play the game!

That’s it guys. See you on another review! And Please tell me about your suggestion or critics in the comment.

Friends or Foes?

In life, there’s always people who doesn’t like you. There are times when we take care of them, the people we proudly call them our staffs, our friends, our colleagues, our bosses. There’s a time when they turns against us. Staffs who make fun of us, they have no idea what if we were not showing them our mercy in working life. Now, when they are not under us anymore, they mock us, they put us as if we are the only one to blame for.

They just don’t know how stupid they are until you show them who they really are, when we don’t act as a shield between them and the top managements. Some of them are practically just idiot. They don’t have “thanks” in their heart for what have we done for them, they practically don’t remember when we at first recruiting them among hundreds of people.

Not so far also with people who we call friends, colleagues. I treat them almost everyday back then, and now they just don’t remember and even try to call me. Only one of them is still contacting me sometimes. He is my best friend, colleague and once staff after all, I don’t think in the future I will find anyone better than him. His character is outstanding, he works with me late until morning, he offers much help, he asks after he bloodily working on his assignment and still can’t solve it, he become a smoker after working with me for a bit (anyway, that was my satisfaction, he follow his boss’s lifestyle), he loves women and loves to drink (once again follow his boss’s lifestyle).

I manage to save my friend’s asses in front of my bosses, when they were in trouble. Those moments I did for people I called friends, are gone in the past. People tend not to remember the past and move forward. It’s good at some level, but when they forget good person who helped them in the past, it’s kind of showing who they are in the future. They might or might not succeed in the future, it has nothing to do with they forgetting us. It’s a reminder for us to choose to hang out with people who purely supports us and not gonna forget about us, people who understand the concept of return the favor. {click to tweet}

I conduct some experiment back then just to know who my friends really are. So I call each of them and asking them to help me financially since I’m in deep misery. They have all their excuses :

  1. Not Answering my call or my messages.
  2. “Sorry, I just bought an apartment, so I don’t have anything left to lend you”
  3. “Who are you? Is this scam?”
  4. “Sorry, I don’t have the money”

Their sorry bullshit saying keep ringing in my ears, so this is who they actually are! This is when my concept on only loves who loves you back arise. Those kind of responses only leave me a question, “Why don’t you just say, how much do you need? I will help if I have!”

They just break the whole relationship with those sorry words. Sorry is never enough! People won’t help you when you are in trouble, because they are selfish. Sooner or later in their life, they will see all people leaving them for good. God damn selfish bastard!

But life never stop when friends don’t help you. They will not become your foes just because of that, but you will not contact them, you will not care for them anymore, you don’t even give a damn when they die or in deep shit.

We have to keep going on living this life, with a concept of success is our great revenge!
