A Good Video Game Adaptation of a Great Film

Summary: The Godfather saga is widely considered one of the greatest achievements in film, was a smashing financial success, and gave American audiences an idea of the Mafia and its inner workings for the first time in the mainstream. With all the drama and violence portrayed, it was a matter of time before it would be given a video game adaptation, although gamers would be thankfully spared a likely-butchered licensed game on early consoles and would later get one in 2006’ The...
Summary: "The Godfather: The Don's Edition" is an open-world game set in 1940s New York, and is best experienced by those familiar with the classic 1972 Mafia film. You play as a nameless, faceless (you customize your character how you like at the start) low level thug, who works his way through the ranks by taking over businesses and rackets, and completing story missions that recount important moments from the film, to eventually become Don of the city.
Summary: This is a realy fun game. It's like GTA, except you get to explore the inside of buildings. The enviroment of endless. You get to tackle missions at your own pace. There are some cheap deaths though. For example you walk into a room and "bang" your shot dead. I would recommend using cheat codes just like GTA. This is a great game to just relax and spend many hours of great adventuring around 1940's New york.
Summary: A must have for any gangster game enthusiast. As you rise through the ranks on this game it unlocks movie clips so it gives you something to work for. The fighting style is someone repetitive but fun nonetheless. If you can purchase 1 for 20 dollars or under in good condition I would get it. I purchased 4 of them from here on Amazon, 1 for playing and 3 I put in storage because they have become very collectible with a new 1 selling as high as 90 dollars.
Summary: In terms of overall graphics, gameplay, and storyline; it isn't the best game out there but is quite entertaining non the less. While it may be viewed as a bust for your average gamer, to one who is also a Fan of both the Godfather movies, and the books, it is a must have. Certainly worth at least one play through.
Summary: So much improvement from previous versions of Godfather the Game. I own an older copy for the PC which did not have an outdoor food market, casinos, favor missions, and unique compounds. I could destroy more things in businesses, plant car bombs, and so much more. The customization of character is pretty much the same as the older game.
Summary: This game was fun, and it was great to see these characters again, but there were three main problems: I just couldn't swallow the story. It's so intertwined at key points with the Godfather story, and yet in the movie/book, we never hear or see any of this stuff going on? I would have preferred they distance the stories to make the game's seem more plausible. And whenever any male character is talking, he will eventually do this little belly-scratching animation.
Summary: Buying this game I knew it wouldn't be the best game ever made but I was very pleased with the purchase. This game is hours of fun and the storyline is simple If you want a fun game to just sit down and relax for a weekend this game is the one
