    Next-gen? It's barely present-gen. The Godfather has no business calling itself a PS3 game. [May 2007, p.108]

    The dominating impression of The Don's Edition is that this is a very lazy PS3 port, with a lame attempt to justify its existence by bolting on Sixaxis functions and throwing in extra content in the form of The Corleone Expansion Pack. [Issue #151, p.91]

Especially the PS3 version, since it is the best version of the game, although I feel like it could have been more polished. When it comes to gangster games, this one takes the cake. Full Review »

Graphically it is far superior and looks fantastic on a large high def screen. The dynamic weather effects look great, the buildings, character models, vehicles and insides of buildings look lovely (ok not up to the same standard as COD4 or Uncharted but much much better than the PS2, which I think is what most people who are fans of the PS2 version want to know. Is it worth upgrading if you have already played the PS2 version? definitely. The combat animations and explosions are absolutely stunning. The audio has been improved big time as well (both music and surround effects). The game is bigger than the original and a tougher challenge. I play this game a lot and like the fact that there are two strategies you can follow e.g. all out combat using the enforcer style or by blackmail and subterfuge using the operator path. A much better game than the Metacritic score and online reviews suggest. Full Review »

    This game does a good job on taking on the best movie of all time with its missions and making sure that you still like to watch the cutThis game does a good job on taking on the best movie of all time with its missions and making sure that you still like to watch the cut scenes that develop the story. Taking over businesses gets bring after a while but you can complete favors and hits on other families which makes it a bit better. But the graphics are just awful, unless you love the Godfather to pieces or can get it for cheap then just keep the Ps3 version. Full Review »
