I played the PS2 version, liked it and bought the game. I played the 360 version and wished I saved my money. The 360 is way better and way cooler. There are many extra's in the 360 version that you don't get in the PS2. You can hire people from the Corleone compounds to help you out. The bribes that you pay are all different, not a constant same rate, and you can also do favors for the companies you are trying to take control of. All in all, it is a really GREAT game to play.

A GTA for sofisticated crowd is a good explaination, i like that. This game is less smack the blanks, and blankin' the hoes. and more a crime for business type of game. the way it ties into the movie is cool and fun. It's difficult at times but never too difficult and never monotonous like so often GTA can be. I have never been a patient gamer, if the game doesn't rock right off the bat, i send it back. If the game is too difficult i cheat (but then am bored of it within hours because it's too easy) this game rides the lines perfect. The only reason i didn't give it a ten? toward the end (taking over all the rackets and getting all the favors and hits done) a lot of the character dialogue no longer applies. Like a lot of the hits say "the don wants this..." well, i am the don, so why didn't i know that. and for gods sake why do i sound like i have been dying to do something for the don, when i have been a made man for a long time now? thats the only thing wrong with this game... one of few that i played 100% done without cheating... i love it.

This is the best thing I've played in a while. much more compelling than GTA or Saints row in my opinion. Nice selection of new weapons and the addition of crew members makes this worth getting even if you have the Godfather for the old Xbox. Possibly the best game I have played on the 360 so far.
