Mafia III may not have set the open world genre alight as was intended, but by most accounts, it's not that bad overall. The game's obviously been out for a while now, but coinciding with the release of its first expansion, a playable demo has hit the PlayStation Store. If you've had your eye on Mafia III but the lukewarm reception was enough to put you off, this might be a good opportunity to try it out for yourself.

Indeed, the sandbox shooter got hammered for its repetitive gameplay, but the story's supposed to be pretty good, and the 1960s setting is apparently well realised. Again, the demo could be worth a shot if you can be bothered with the download. Any progress that you make in the demo will carry over to the full game, if you decide to buy it.
