Despite the good amount of buzz surrounding its launch, Mafia II: Definitive Edition has released in a disastrous state. It plays poorly on the base PlayStation 4 model, but rather bizarrely, the PS4 Pro version is actually the worst of the lot according to Digital Foundry. And thanks to the outcry from fans and newcomers playing the remaster, developer d3t Ltd has stated that it is continuing to work with 2K in an effort to fix those problems.
Taking to Twitter, the studio said: "Thanks for your valuable #Mafia2DefinitiveEdition feedback. We’re listening and working with 2K to continue to support your experience. Reminder, if you are experiencing any issues or have questions, please get in touch with @2KSupport."
It's nice to know that d3t Ltd will be attempting to patch the experience up to get it into an acceptable state, but it really, really shouldn't have been let out the door like this. It's the reason we rated Mafia II: Definitive Edition a 4/10 -- it could have been a nice PS4 game to play in-between bigger releases. Alas, it should be avoided completely right now.
Mafia III: Definitive Edition isn't doing much better either. It has somehow shipped without the PS4 Pro enhancements the original game had. Did you buy the Mafia: Trilogy? Let us know in the comments below.
