    Okay, now that everyone who must have worked on the game has voted, I'll give my impression as a player. Weak, aggravating and unsatisfying gameplay. Could have been so much more, so much better. What does depth matter if the surface and moment-to-moment gameplay stinks? At least I got my receipt.

    The actual hand to hand (or baseball bat to hand) combat is excellent too; targeting in the same way, you use both thumbsticks to combat your opponent, one for moving you or your opponent, you can throw or ram your foe into the wall with this stick too - and the other stick is generally for hitting them. Use both together for best results!
  2. EA shatters the curse as The Godfather does the great movie justice, drawing you into the Mafia world and backs it up with solid gameplay and engrossing plot.
  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.
