Mafia III Reviews by POC:
Tanya DePass – Ontological Geek (my review!)
The only Mafia III review by a non-POC I’m linking and here’s why:
“Being a white dude, racism is something I’ve never experienced and never will, so I’m not going to sit here trying to talk about how effective Mafia III’s portrayal of it is – it’s not my place. Instead, I want to to draw attention to comments from a number of people of colour, many (but not all) of whom have praised Mafia III’s handling of the subject matter.”

“Mafia III takes place in a fictionalized version of the American South in 1968.
We sought to create an authentic and immersive experience that captures this very turbulent time and place, including depictions of racism.
We find the racist beliefs, language, and behaviors of some characters in the game abhorent, but believe it is vital to include these depictions in order to tell Lincoln Clay’s story.”
This paragraph also appears but is cut off in this shot.
“Most importantly, we felt that to not include this very real and shameful part of our history would have been offensive to the millions who faced – and still face – bigotry, discrimination, prejudice, and racism in all it’s forms.”
