  1. This is one of the strongest versions of the game, without a doubt, coupling a dynamic character creation system with deeper gameplay.
  2. An enjoyable game in spite of its lackluster graphics and tendency towards some repetitive gameplay.
  3. Graphical upgrades, adjustments to the combat system, new missions, and additional content (there are more warehouses, hubs, rackets and such) make it the version that offers the most bang for the buck.

    A flawed but praiseworthy attempt to mix Puzo and "GTA" that deserves a lotta respect. [May 2007, p.72]

    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.

    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]

    Anyone who says the PS3 version is no different to the PS2 version is completely wrong. Graphically it is far superior and looks fantastic onAnyone 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

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

    Not so much a comment on the particular version (Although 360/PS3 versions are infinitely superior to all others). The game itself is one ofNot so much a comment on the particular version (Although 360/PS3 versions are infinitely superior to all others). The game itself is one of the best games ever made. A genuine open world environment with plenty of options. The challenge scale goes up at just the right pace for a challenge without frustrating difficulty spikes (with the possible exception of the faction compounds). Turning enemy stores to your family is immensely enjoyable. The voice acting is brilliant throughout and the driving mechanic is well done for its era. Combat has a good shooting mechanic but it is possible to use un-armed combat effectively. Plenty of choices throughout and a truly amazing soundtrack. I've played the game through to 100% completion three times, 200+ hours and I'm sure I'll do so again. Expand

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
