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.
One of the most fun games I've played in a while. Combines Grand Theft auto and the Godfather series. I even think there is a little Fight Night in there too when you are interrogating shop owners and beating down rival gang members. The controls arent overly complicated and its not too tough to progress through the game. I really cant think of any weak points. I may have to purchase this game from gamefly.
The Godfather for the xbox360, although originally released for the PS2 and reg. xbox, is worth the wait. Though you have the same character's, and creating your character is the same in every aspect, the story line is altered to make you feel like someone who was really just standing on the outside of all the events that took place in the movie's. Such as, when Sonny is called to help out with an abusive husband, and gets caught up at the Toll booth, you don't know what's going on, you just chase him down, to watch your enemies fill him full of lead. The graphics are also amazing, and the controls haven't been touched, definitely worth playing or buying.
