Wow. Rent or buy this NOW. If you own a Wii, this is a great appaetizer on what you can expect in a sandbox, GTA type game. It's done really well.

The game itself was excellent. It is engrossing and very easy to play. The only objection I had to it was the language. My 11 yr old really enjoyed playing the game but I was not comfortable with him playing a game with that language. My 18 yr old really enjoyed the clips from the movie as well as the gameplay. I would highly recommend this game to others but maybe only to teenagers and older.

The Godfather reigns on the Wii

This is one of the most fun games I've played before. It is probably the single best game for the Wii as of right now.

This game even beats Zelda, in my opinion, due to its superior and more intuitive controls. This game handles tightly, and has a great feel while controlling your character's actions.

The game follows the story of The Godfather, as you take on the role of a character you create. You drive, you shoot, and you kill, just as any good mobster would.

The controls generally work without problems. Using free aim mode is entertaining, but for larger battles lock-on mode is best. The game's controls are very satisfying. You can throw people over ledges, slam them against walls and tables, and do many other unsavory things to your victims.

Ultimately, the game plays like a Grand Theft Auto game, only with more unique ways of dispatching enemies, and a much more compelling storyline.

If you like the Grand Theft Auto games, you'll definitely appreciate this one. It's definitely got the best Wii controls so far, and anyone old enough should definitely check this game out.
