    Another great game. Insane gameplay and plot, very good graphics and excellent sound. This is a very good game which should be played by everyone who likes its genre.

    The game is truly entertaining. My only complaint is the hideous controls. EA: Better do it better.

    I though it was okay. They def stuck to the movie script and used a lot of the same lines. I didnt like the mouse movement nor the fact that it was another vice city knock off.

    First, the good. Gameplay is pretty well done, only bogging down in tight interior firefights. Execution styles and extortion weak points are a nice touch. In the minus column, there are none of the mini-games that make GTA so interesting. The music, although faithful to the movie, gets old quickly. Hardly any outside environments (like in the highly underrated Mafia) and only 4 cars to First, the good. Gameplay is pretty well done, only bogging down in tight interior firefights.

The music, although faithful to the movie, gets old quickly. Hardly any outside environments (like in the highly underrated Mafia) and only 4 cars to drive. Not only are there no female characters from the movie, Michael looks and sounds nothing like Al Pacino. All in all, a fun game that could have been substantially better. Expand

    Whether through it's trademark music or unique take on the film's plot, The Godfather does something that licensed video games have tried and failed to accomplish in the past - give gamers a good time and an experience worthy of the film it's emulating.
  2. The Godfather is a satisfying, lengthy adventure, and more importantly, it remains faithful to the classic film while managing to create a compelling story of its own.
  3. The action is bloody and satisfying, the story plays out like exceptionally well-written fan-fiction and the spirit of the movie and its characters are intact.
