  1. This is one of the strongest versions of the game, without a doubt, coupling a dynamic character creation system with deeper gameplay.
  2. I will commend EA for not porting over the Xbox 360 version and just adding a fresh coat of paint. They went ahead and added new Blackhand moves, new executions, upgraded graphics, new side missions, and a host of many new features on your way to becoming the Don of NY.
  3. The Godfather: The Don's Edition might be a last-gen retread, but for what it's worth, it's still one of the better titles available for the PS3 right now.
  4. The game experience isn’t all that far removed from the Xbox 360 version (to be fair there is a lot of new content that isn’t available anywhere but on the PS3), but it’s as good a game as any to pick up for PS3 owners starving for some valuable entertainment beyond SCEA’s first-party titles.

    The Godfather: The Don's Edition doesn't feel next-gen. Even with the new additions, it plays like a PS2 game.
  6. A decent port job that adds enough to keep first time players entertained, but seasoned Godfather vets will probably stay away.
  7. 37
    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]

    I play this game on PS2 and I love this game because the graphics were good and sound but I wish that I can play this game on PlayStation 3!

    Anyone who says the PS3 version is no different to the PS2 version is completely wrong. 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. Expand

    This is the best gangster game ever made! Remember when they made reviews of Saints Row 3? How much did Saints Row 3 score? How many reviewers later said that they were wrong? OMG how the heck can they rate Godfather 6,9? It should be illegal rating it like that. It really deserves a big golden 10! The graphics are perfect and makes it feel like you are living in old days, the guns are perfect and many varieties. It's a long game full of opportunities... everything is entertaining to the maximum and FACK all these busters who rate this game below 9! Expand

    This game really shows ow much EA listened to its audience. There are some nice improvements to the gangsters and to the game as a whole. Recommend this for anyone who has not played the game before. Collapse

    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 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. Expand
