I loved the Godfather movies [except part III] and when I heard the Godfather game was coming out I jumped for joy. When I got it I was happy with what I saw. The controls are good, no problems. The game play is good, but after a while it get repetitive. The graphics could be better to. With those problems set aside it is a very good game. The game takes you through parts of the movie. It blends your story in with the sory of the movie perfectly. Voice acting is good to, except that the voice for Michel Corleone sounds nothing like young Al Pacino [the best actor of all time]. I say rent this one and see if you like it. If you do then buy it!

Oh boy, where do I start. First off this isn't just another GTA clone. This game has the dialog that really matches its 1950s theme. Unlike other games in the action adventure genre, there are no restrictions from the beginning. you can go to any of the five hoods you want. detail in the game is both good and bad. Some of the graphics are really cool like the smoke, fire, and explosions. But then the cars and buildings (exterior and interior) all look the same. Character creation is pretty good and the story has the best scenes from the movie. As you level up your character you can upgrade his skills and spend some money on upgrading weapons. The AI in the game is smart enough to take cover when necessary, and shoot at you when they can. In this game you can even take over businesses and rackets by interrogating or beating up the owner, but this gets way too repetitive. I really liked the fighting system although it could have been a little deeper. I'm sure you'll have fun with this game for a little while before it starts to lose its touch. I give it a 7, out of 10

The godfather is a awesome game. It's similar to GTA series but not as much freedom. Still the missions are layed out in a great way as you rise to don of NYC. If you have ever played the game MAFIA, after playing this game Mafia will look like the worst mob game ever. This one is a winner.
