Released on UsefulNotes/PlayStation2, then on the UsefulNotes/XBox and PC, and eventually got released on iOS and Android for its 10th Anniversary in 2011. This game was the first of the series to actually feature a full-fledged 3D graphics engine that took advantage of the state-of-the-art hardware of its time to render an entire city, thus creating one of the first incarnations of the WideOpenSandbox genre as we know it.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: One of the late Mafia missions has you tailing a person of interest when gets into a taxi. If you manage to hijack the taxi that's parked outside the club before the target appears or take a taxi for yourself and park in the same area, the person will get into your taxi and you get to escort him to his destination. Of course, driving like a maniac will still spook him and make the mission fail.

* LostForever: Some Portland missions need to be done before you leave. Also, [[spoiler:Kenji will get killed at a certain point]], so you need to complete his missions before then. Ditto Asuka after you take the construction site; you lose the condo missions.

** Catalina, full stop.
** The obviously insane Marty Chonks is in financial difficulty and has grievances with many people because of it. But he took care of these grievances by killing those who were the cause of the grievances and turning them into dog food.

Added DiffLines:

* CoversAlwaysLie: A lot of the imagery found in both the game cover and the loading screens seems to run contradictory to the game itself.
** Misty's character drawing shows her holding a pistol and wearing a rather menacing expression on her face. In-game, she's portrayed as one of the nicer characters and is never shown wielding a gun.
*** She's also featured in the manual as one of 'the people who run this town'. In actuality, despite being fairly close to Joey, she's just a local prostitute working for Luigi.
** 8-Ball's character drawing shows him holding an M-16. 8-Ball's hands were crippled long before the year the game takes place in, and he mentions more than once that he can't hold a firearm anymore.
** That bearded guy at the bottom-left corner of the game cover? That's El Burro, a minor character [[TheVoice whose face you never see in-game.]]
** Half of the characters' manual/loading screen drawings look nothing like their in-game models. Salvatore Leone is missing his mustache, Asuka Kasen doesn't even have the same hairstyle, and several characters[[note]]Misty, Maria Latore and Tony Cipriani, to name a few[[/note]] are shown sporting completely different outfits from the ones they wear in-game.
** Catalina, the game's BigBad, is nowhere to be found on the game's cover. She's also missing from the manual.
*** What's even more bizarre is that her partner Miguel is featured in the game manual ''and'' in loading screens, despite him being the less important character out of the two of them.

** The game doesn't feature harsh language almost at all; for example there is not a single F-Bomb being dropped in the entire game, which is quite a glaring difference when compared to more recent games in the series. A few milder profanities are being used, however.
