Mafia: Definitive Edition review – a modernised, much-loved mob story
PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One (version tested); Hangar 13/2K GamesThis is a gripping tale of crime families, sharp shooting and sharper suits – but has this remaster lost some of Mafia’s charm?In the wake of Grand Theft Auto III’s success in the early noughties, many action games were happy to follow Rockstar’s blueprint and build a big city map, where the player could roam freely and do heinous things to passers-by. Illusion Softworks (now 2K) saw things differently: if the hardware of the day was capable of realising enormous 3D spaces, why not treat a virtual city as a grand movie set, rather than a sociopath’s playpen?So they did. The original Mafia: City of Lost Heaven, in 2002, was a third-person action game with a unique filmic quality, not just because it referenced a different Scorsese movie with every breath, but also because it dared to tell a linear story within a city map that was as big as anyone had ever seen. Eighteen years on, it’s been rebuilt from the ground up with modern technology, and it’s still that cinematic quality that shines brightest. What’s surprising is that in its effort to update every facet of a classic game, it buffs out some of the rougher elements that were essential to its charm. Continue reading...

Farmville foreclosure! Why Facebook is canning its most popular game
After 11 years of digital ploughing, planting and harvesting, the most famous social network game of all time is being consigned to the scrapheapName: FarmVille.Appearance: Cute, colourful agricultural community filled with innocent, wide-eyed people and animals who are never slaughtered.Is that somewhere in the midwest of the United States? If you want it to be.How long has it been around? Eleven years.And how is FarmVille doing? Not well. In fact, it’s about to be closed down.That’s terrible. What’s the reason? Covid, the recession, Trump, the rise of veganism? Declining popularity and the fact that Flash games will no longer be supported on Facebook from the end of the year. I’m not with you. I gather that. FarmVille is an award-winning game made by US-based developer Zynga; a digital simulation of a farming community, a computerised Ambridge. At one point, it was the most popular game on Facebook with more than 80 million players. But times change.What did you have to do to play the game? Invest a lot of time; devote yourself to ploughing, planting and harvesting; earn farm coins to buy equipment and seeds. But above all badger your Facebook friends to come and help out on the farm – a quick way to grow it.That’s annoying. Intensely. All those Facebook friends quickly got sick of requests to come and help with the lambing, milking and harvesting.Was there no other way to grow? This being the US, raw capitalism also worked. Instead of farm coins you could use farm cash – real money – to buy stuff as a shortcut to commercial success. Clever, eh?Who played it? That was the beauty of the game. It didn’t appeal to spotty teenagers in smelly bedrooms. They didn’t think it was much of a game at all, since no one was annihilated by androids. Even the turkeys were made ready for Thanksgiving by gently plucking their feathers rather than violence. This was a dreamworld, and it appealed to mums who could play the game at home with their children. How sweet. Because of its unusual demographic, it became huge. Zynga partnered with big brands to promote merchandise and Lady Gaga even had her own farm, GagaVille, where players could hear an exclusive set of songs. Sounds like fun, actually. Some games aficionados didn’t think much of it. They said that because all you needed to do was invest time in menial labouring tasks it was both tedious and, for some players, potentially addictive.Do say: “Personally, I’m not too sorry to see it go.”Don’t say: “You do realise you can still play later iterations of the game on your mobile?” Continue reading...
