Almost 700 Reviewers Can't Be Wrong ...

I am a huge fan of the GTA franchise, and for that reasons I never bought or rented Godfather until now. Nothing else was out for PS3 and I took a chance. I am glad I did, because this is an awesome game!

There are a lot of elements from GTA here (free roam environment, mission based activities with rewards/cash etc ... a great arsenal & cars you can steal) ... but what separates this game is what GTA has yet to do - realism.

You can't just start a shootout in the streets, you'll be killed rather quickly depending on where you are - they have backup, but it doesn't come in waves like GTA and people don't randomly appear to come and kill you either.

You can buy guns/clothes etc from black market distributors (each one has a different item to sell), you can extort business' and blow their safe if you have dynamite.

You feel like a part of the family, unlike recent GTA titles, where you complete generic missions and gain momentum in the world. Godfather does a very good job of bringing aspects of the Mob to your video game world.

The Don's Edition?

When the Don's edition arrived I was conflicted. Not too long ago I had received, played and returned The Godfather on the 360 and was not sure I wanted to play the same game over again.

Good thing I did.

The lower load times and graphic updates were refreshing. I was surprised the first time the motion sensor controller was actually used in the fighting. It got a good laugh out of my wife as from her perspective it looked like I was fighting with the controller. After catching me "fighting" with the controller she ended up sitting next to me and got drawn into the story, which is something that the Grand theft auto series never did.

Now the Godfather does not have the bright colors and tolerant police force that GTA and Saint's Row has, but that is something I approve. The heat system is nice since you will be able see if you need to be a little more careful or if you have the cash available you can swing the police to your side.

The cut scenes are excellent and help remind you that this is an RPG and not another sandbox. The audio helps enforce whatever action you are doing but is not a big player.

Overall I would say, if you played the 360 and liked it; give this version a chance. If you have stayed away from this game because it is just another sandbox I would say give it an hour and see if it can draw your interest.

This game is one of the best three games I have played for playstation 3. If you like Grand theft Auto this is another game you will love. Please check it out. The games got me hooked for three straight weeks.
