5.0 out of 5 stars It's Only Business! April 27, 2006
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First off, this review is for the XB Godfather Collector's Edition which I own.

Second, for many hard-core GTA fans, they might see this as a rip-off. It's not. If anything, it's a testament to how well GTA has done its work for a game based on one of the all-time mobster genre movies.

The Godfather allows you to step into the role of a small-time crook that has ties to the Corleone family. Until his mother begs Don Corleone to help "save" him, this gangster has been running around with the "wrong" crowd. Luca Brasi is asked by the Don to help and rescue him.

From there, you begin your rise in the Corleone family. Like GTA, this game allows you to do the main missions and also pick up numerous side missions, giving you that "freedom" to run around and do what you want.

However, unlike GTA, what you do on the streets in the side missions can affect your standing in the family. You have to earn respect in this game, and that comes with experience. Your clothes can either make or break how people react to you, especially when you need to go collect "protection" money from the many businesses and rackets that are abound in the city.

Combat in The Godfather is MUCH improved over GTA. In fact, you can just go and knock people off if you want from a distance to protect yourself from bullets and damage, but your respect level won't really get anywhere if you do that. Also, rather than just targeting and pressing a button on the controller (which results in digital-button mashing), EA has come up with an innovative way of "fighting".

First, the left trigger is used to target. Next, you can pull the right trigger to fire. Nothing new there. But, when you need to use your fists, things get a little more interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Game You Cannot Refuse March 22, 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was one of 10 people from around the world (one flew in from Naples!) invited to Electronic Arts in San Francisco to preview the game, meet and talk with the game developers, and take a tour of EA's main campus.

I'm not much of gamer in general. The last console I owned was a Sega, ok? So, I nervously (yet also curiously) sat down with this game to give it a shot.

Wow. First off, the graphics were great! (Personally, I think the X-BOX version looked a little better than the PS2 version, but both were really nice. However, the PC version of course blew them both away). There was no "official confirmation" -- nor denial -- of a 360 version in the works, but I have a feeling they're working on that for a later release. Incidentally, they're also going to release a special edition which will include a DVD with special features (making-of) for the console versions.

Anyway, back to the game itself: I played mostly on the PS2 version, and have always had trouble with all those buttons. That's just me, of course. But I tell you, I had fewer problems with this game than most others I've tried -- the "Black Hand" controls were quite intuitive for once, and it never felt like I had to fumble around to find the right button.

What's unique -- and wonderful!! -- about this game is that you are NOT Vito or Michael or Sonny or anyone like that, but you are you -- your own character (that you can even create to look however you want to the most minor detail) interacting with the characters from the movie. You start out as a lowly hood and work your way up the ranks by first strong-arming shop keepers for protection money, bribing cops, and going on specific missions set forth by Clemenza or other characters.

3.0 out of 5 stars Gotta Get Use To It July 7, 2013
Verified Purchase
This Game is not just a gta clone it goes beyond that it has great character development making you feel like you know who these people are it has depth .One thing you need to know is you gotta master the controllers and sorta beef up your character before you think your ready to take on the world theirs stats iand experience in this game you can level up hand to hand combat gun combat driving stealth health etc. it takes time to gain some of the more powerful weapons and you get to upgrade these weapons its quite expensive considering what gun type it is but its worth it. the driving is a bit "so so" at time i master the drifting but since this game is dated its not on par with forza or nfs or even saints row 2's drifiting but it gets the job done and is much more supeior in driving then gta4. I cant really tell you much without spoiling things but this game is fun and deserves a buy at these cheap prices, theirs unlockable upgrades, movieclips, guns, uprgrades, And a very decent story if your a fan of Sanbox games, or a fan of the Godfather movies get this game asap
