I found this game can be pretty fun seeing as it lasted me about a weeks worth of plays. It is like a GTA theme except you a mobster.
The pluses are that guns can be upgraded, pretty big map, mob style GTA, the guns are just nice in general, extorting businesses (except for when you reach the Don rank.. all you do is talk and they give in), clothes and character customization and much more.
Although some pretty annoying things would be like cars have no name, no radio and its always the same song that plays in the car, only being able to hire one guy, your car can explode pretty easily when being chased, the auto aiming can switch from person to person randomly when you dont want it to and that its hard to get it back, only maybe 9 different kinds of cars, and not much replay value, not being able to shoot from cars, coming around the corner to a road block and getting shot up isn't a lot fun, and there isn't a lot to do when you aren't doing missions.

First off let me say that I loved the original version of this game,taking over compounds and businesses really made it seem like you were moving your way up the ladder of organized crime. Along with being a fan of The Godfather movies and a fan of any GTA like game made this game perfect. My only complaint with the original was the fact that achievements were not kept track of so when I took over all compounds the only thing I could say to myself was "I wonder how many points was that worth" so in closing I really recommend this game to anyone even if you are'nt a fan of the movie this game is very accessible to anyone that is a fan of videogames.
