    The game isn't too bad, but there are too many factors holding it back. The difficulty level is a little too high, which wouldn't matter, except that YOU CAN'T LOAD YOUR F*****G GAME. It cannot be understated how obnoxious it is having to quit your game and reload from the main menu. I wouldn't mind dying all the time if I could just load the game and restart the The game isn't too bad, but there are too many factors holding it back.

It cannot be understated how obnoxious it is having to quit your game and reload from the main menu. I wouldn't mind dying all the time if I could just load the game and restart the mission in a matter of seconds (like every other sandbox game EVER). But it takes 2-3 minutes just to get back to the start of the mission. It may sound picky, but it is utter b******t not being able to load a game while in-game. As a matter of fact. I'm changing my rating from 4 to 3. Forget this crap, get Saints Row. Light years better. Expand

    Wow... Where to start... First of the health system sucks. I upgraded it, but it didn't help. I'm used to health systems that work I guess. Cars handle horribly, and why would you make a game where the control stick to move the camera, was the same one to fight?

Game play was just broken. Had potential but fell short. Expand

    Gamers have higher expectations for next-generation titles than current gen games, and The Godfather looks and plays exactly like what it is: A good upgraded current-gen game.

    However, the fact remains that this is still the same flawed game that was released for the current-gen systems. [Oct. 2006, p.104]
  3. The across-the-board improvements on Xbox 360 pick up where the current-gen gameplay left off, but they probably don't justify the added cost for people who have already played a current-gen version.
