Excerpt: When Electronic Arts first announced that a game based on The Godfather was under development, it was met with mixed results. The concept of a GTA -styled game set during the film was enough to get some gamers excited while others, including the film’s director Francis Ford Coppola, met the announcement with harsh, yet somewhat justified criticism.
Conclusion: Now The Godfather isn't a bad game by any means, but for dedicated fans of the movies you'll probably scream heresy at seeing this new character involved in many pivotal moments of the story. But casual fans will likely enjoy being taking into this world. If you've played one of the many other versions, PSP included, then likely you'll not be ready to throw down your hard-earned cash for a game that's more than four months old.
Pros: Innovative SIXAXIS use, Combination of 360 and Wii version
Cons: Doesn't look like a PS3 game, Outdated release
Conclusion: The Godfather is an interesting game to play. It doesn't quite live up to the hype surrounding the source material and the gameplay tends to feel a little too GTA-like at times. Still, there is enough personality in the game and interesting concepts to make it a worthwhile play. The PS3 version feels a little less relevant a year after the fact though EA tossed some new things into the pot to make it enticing.
Excerpt: "The Godfather" maintains its legendary film status, and the brutal, gritty mobster series is as popular as ever. Much like "Scarface," the concept of the story suggests it would make for an excellent video game, and surprisingly, the recent release of
Excerpt: Volgens velen de onbetwiste nummer 1 van IMDB. Ik heb het natuurlijk over de Godfather. De reeks met films zal iedereen wel bekend in de oren klinken en de mafia-sfeer wordt heropgeroepen met de game The Godfather: The Don’s Edtion. Wederom een launch game voor de Playstation 3 dus. Eens kijken wat deze game klaar speelt op de next-generation console van Sony.
Excerpt: A versão vídeojogável de “O Padrinho” teve direito a uma passagem pela PS3. A Electronic Arts trouxe o seu Padrinho até à PlayStation3. Esta versão apresenta as novidades introduzidas no capítulo 360, mais missões, cenários ligeiramente retocados e conta com a presença do sensor de movimentos do Sixaxis. Mas mesmo com a adição de novos extras, The Godfather não deixa de ser um jogo algo mediano.
Excerpt: Den første film, der følger Don Corleones strabadser for at beholde magten som den ubestridte højest rangerede mafia-boss, har ry for at være en af verdens bedste film. Sådan en film kan naturligivis ikke undgå en ”spilmatisering”, og den står EA for. I denne anmeldelse tester vi PLAYSTATION 3-versionen af The Godfather, som har fået undertitlen ”The Don's Edition”.
Pros: Optimeret grafik, så spillet ligner et next-gen spil.
Cons: Når vi kigger på den kedelige og halvgrumsede grafik.
Summary: The visuals are pretty much high-definition PlayStation 2 quality with poor textures and a lack of use of the PS3’s power. The soundtrack as well as voice work is put to good use here as the characters are brought to life through their speech. Definitely the highlight of the game here as it really solidifies the game as a quality representation of the world of The Godfather. Decent analog control fighting system with an attempt at SIXAXIS controls.
