When the frame rate unlock patch landed, I realised that the 30fps limit wasn’t the only thing making Mafia City Game feel sluggish: it was the control settings as well. The default sensitivity makes controlling Lincoln feel like you’re driving a tank. Thankfully, this can be tweaked. You can rebind the keys, too, but not the controller layout. Lamentably, there are only two layouts to choose between.
The bad news continues as we get to the HUD, which frequently gets in the way, and can’t be altered at all. The game also has a tendency to stop you to give you a tutorial that you’ve read several times already, that isn’t even relevant to the situation you’re in. You just have so little control over the game. And any time you want to change something that you actually can tweak, you must navigate through a slow slideshow of menus that hide a smaller slideshow of menus. Fantastic!
Although Yotta Games were quick to fire out a patch that added new frame rate options, they’ve only revealed more of Mafia City’s shortcomings. Until more patches roll out, this one is best avoided.
