Year of release : 25 Sep. 2020
Genre : Action / Adventure / Crime / Remake / Story Rich
Developer : Hangar 13
Publisher : 2K

The first part of the Mafia crime saga - 30s, Lost Haven, Illinois. Remake of the cult game, recreated from scratch. Build a mafia career during Prohibition. After a chance encounter with the mafia, taxi driver Tommy Angelo finds himself in the world of organized crime. At first he is wary of the Salieri family, but big money changes his attitude ...

THE GRAFICAL PART

In this subsection of our review, the main graphical aspects of this game are revealed. Particular attention is paid to the version of the graphics engine used, the version of the API used, graphics settings and the quality of the development of the main visual aspects. 

SUPPORTED OC AND GRAPHICS API

Mafia Definitive Edition is supported by Windows 7/8/10 .

steam

The priority and primary graphics API for Mafia Definitive Edition is DX11 .

GAME ENGINE

The basis for Mafia III was a modified from Mafia II Illusion Engine - a game engine developed by 2K Czech for internal use. It was first used in the 2010 Mafia II computer game.

hangar 13 logo

The name of the technology, Illusion Engine, is likely a reference to Illusion Softworks, the first name of the Czech company 2K Czech, under which the 2002 Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven computer game, the predecessor of Mafia II, was released. Illusion Engine is the successor to the LS3D engine, developed specifically for the first Mafia and later used in several games of various genres, including the arcade aviation simulator Wings of War and the stealth action Chameleon by Silver Wish Games, then a subsidiary of Illusion Softworks. It is possible that some parts of the source code of the LS3D engine were transferred to the Illusion Engine.

The first game based on the Illusion engine was the computer game Mafia II, which was released on August 26, 2010. Released on platforms such as PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, this game received mostly positive reviews from specialized publications; many reviews mentioned the high level of graphics. Later, for the second Mafia, several additions were also released, offering an alternative take on the original game's story, and thus representing "new chapters" that complement the story, but do not continue it.

The Illusion Engine game engine was created specifically for the Mafia II game, with the expectation of being used on seventh generation game consoles, as well as on a personal computer, and is a sub-software that connects several components - a graphics engine, a physics engine, a sound engine, etc. Illusion Engine is specially optimized for correct operation on multi-core processors.

The processing of open (English outdoor) locations of a large size is supported, while loading the sections into which such a location is divided is carried out in the background, which allows you to achieve the effect of "seamlessness" of the location and minimize the number of game downloads visible to the player (the main download is carried out only at the start of the game).

The graphics engine supports many post-processing effects, for example: blur (blur, defocusing of the image), motion blur (smearing the image around the edges), sun glare (sunshine), lens flare (reflection of sun glare on a virtual camera), heat haze (effect hot air (used when rendering shots from firearms), depth of field (used in commercials to create a cinematic effect), volumetric rays (light scattering), HDR. Color correction methods are actively used. Water processed with shaders reflects the world around.

Many effects are often used to give a special stylistic direction to various episodes of the game: for example, in winter levels, the unevenness of the road surface covered with ice and snow is shown with the help of bumpy texturing and gloss; long shadows typical for this season are discarded, and a color filter allows you to achieve a more contrasting and colder color in the image. In summer, the image becomes brighter and more juicy. The state of intoxication is shown by lost focus and oversaturated colors.

Dynamic soft shadows are fully supported, which are affected by light sources, including the position of the main light source - the "sun". Implemented self-shadowing of objects.

As a physics engine, nVidia's PhysX is integrated (in Mafia II), and Havok (in Mafia III). The possibilities of the particle system are widely used; there is destructibility of the environment, amenable to the influence of physics (this feature is especially actively used in several episodes of the game, for example, in the episode where the heroes shoot a wooden building, while how it breaks up is calculated in real time); implemented a function that simulates a "blast wave", capable of lifting objects into the air without the use of scripts (for example, an explosion of a car can blow passers-by off their feet); the effect of physical conditions on clothes is imitated (for example, the main character’s cloak, or the skirt of a girl walking along the street, can flutter in the wind without passing “through” the character model) - imitation of the behavior of fabrics is actively used in the PC version of the game,

Water rendered with shaders reflects the world around it (through specular cubemaps in Mafia II, and through screen space in Mafia III/Mafia: Definitive Edition).

Facial animation is processed using a third-party FaceFX component from OC3 Entertainment. Artificial intelligence is based on the Kynapse library, which is owned by Autodesk. The engine also uses the FMOD audio library and the Bink video library.

GRAPHICS SETTINGS

Mafia Definitive Edition has a sufficient range of graphics settings.

All video cards were tested at maximum graphics quality by MSI Afterburner. The purpose of the test is to determine how video cards from different manufacturers behave under the same conditions. Below is a video of the test segment :

 Our video cards were tested at resolutions of 1920x1080, 2560x1600 and 3840x2160 at high game graphics quality settings.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX and GTX graphics cards provided by LLC Business Development Center.

GPU TEST

 In the test of video cards, the default resolution is 1920x1080, other resolutions are added and removed manually. You can also remove and add any positions of video cards. You can also choose any of our test processors from the list in the drop-down menu, comparing its performance with the given video card tests (by default, the most productive solution is selected). The test is performed on the most productive CPU and scaled to other processors, taking into account their testing on NVIDIA and AMD video cards.
