The Godfather Review

VideoGamer.com
5 October 2007
  • Excerpt: Whatever you think of Electronic Arts, you can't argue that they make games that appeal to a large audience. The Godfather is the company's latest movie-licensed video game and it's received the usual treatment from those who believe EA contribute nothing good to the industry, with some reactions being a tad over the top.

The Godfather: The Game

Playstation Illustrated
25 May 2007
  • Excerpt: “I’m gonna make him an offer he can’t refuse.” If you have been living under a rock the past three decades, then you may have no clue who uttered this infamous quote. Give up? This came from none other than screen legend Marlon Brando -- as Don Corleone -- in the classic movie “The Godfather.” Electronic Arts has brought this gritty world of the Italian mafia to life in their latest multi-platform title The Godfather: The Game .

Gory game may satisfy movie's fans -- adults only.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this game far surpasses the violence in Francis Ford Coppola's mob masterpiece. The game features 22 execution styles; enemies can be "kneecapped" and "wallpapered." Players spend most of their time slapping around local shopkeepers and attempting to intimidate them into paying protection money. All of this is in addition to the standard Grand Theft Auto template of carjackings, violence against innocents, and cop-killing.

  • Excerpt: After showing you as a child witnessing your father being gunned down by a rival mob boss, the game picks up at the beginning of the first film. At the wedding of Don Vito Corleone's daughter, your mother asks for him to bring you into the family. Since the head of the family cannot refuse a request on the day of his daughter's wedding, he accepts, and places you under the tutelage of Luca Brasi.

  • Excerpt: EA Games made an interesting and daring move when they decided to publish the videogame recreation of the 1973 classic film, “The Godfatherâ€?. As a family-friendly company, EA faced a tough decision in making an authentic experience but also one that didn’t allow or encourage ruthless, brutal violence. They’ve done just that, and also recaptured the beauty of freedom found in today’s open-world “Grand Theft Auto clonesâ€?.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: The Godfather may miss a few of the film's minor plot details, and the lack of Al-Pachino's distinctive persona may be too devastating for certain hardcore fanatics to accept. But EA has certainly done a great job of capturing the overall style of the film, along with creating a well put-together city-roaming adventure, with all the polish you expect from the games giant. This is definitely one of the better urban games out there.
