    Godtather 2 has dated visuals and terrible AI. The cities are small and dull. The controls feel clunky and awkward both on foot and in car. Voice acting is horrible. Definately some good, but not original, ideas that were not executed well. Having to take your made men online to upgrade their weapon licenses' was a terrible idea.

I suppose they did this realising their game was too short hoping this would increase its longevity. The first game was amazing, I played through it twice on both the ps2 and ps3. If this game wasn't a sequel I may have been more forgiving but it's definately a huge step back from the original. EA hasn't let me down this much since Mercenaries 2. Don't mess up Dead Space 2.

    It isn't the best open-world game out there, but it does a sublime job of capturing what it feels like to be the head of a virtual crime family. [Apr 2009, p.81]
  2. Godfather II is a good action videogame that is remarkably improving the good work of its predecessor. A brilliant mixture of action, strategy and resources management, with extraordinary ideas in its concept but with a technical side that needs to be more polished.
  3. Repetition is the biggest flaw in the game, but it doesn’t ruin the experience, by any means. As mentioned earlier the graphics are a lot crisper, the gunplay is a lot tighter, and the managerial side of the game isn’t without the odd moment of satisfaction. The Godfather ii is a decent enough sequel of a decent enough game, diehard fans of the movie should hit it up, to everyone else: this is an offer you can refuse, if you’d like to.
