If the Mafia play this, the makers will wake up with a horses head

Summary: Firstly, I haven't seen the films, but this game doesn't really make me want to. This game is purely being sold on its license as everything in it is dull, repetitive and cliché. Theres the old GTA style 'go somewhere, kill someone, repeat' mission structure and even an obligatory stealth mission. Theres a ridiculously low number of vehicles (4?) and none of them are fun to drive, especially as New York has always seemed to have a dull road system for games to use.
Summary: Ive been playing games since pacman came out,,ive played on every console there is and was,, the Godfather was a boring game,,i read all the reviews first then bought the game,, First problem was the length of the game,, it took me 6 hours to complete the game,, not all in one day,,, this is the biggest problem,, because nower days you have top games like metal gear(1,2,3) Grand Theft Auto(1,2,3,4,5) which take minium of 9 hours to complete and even when you have...
Excerpt: First impressions of this game when it gets un-wrapped and placed in the disk tray for the first time is wow! i wanna go beat someone up and break some windows! and you get thousands of opportunitys to do this throughout the game. However after the 107th time of doing exactly this you will have noticed that this was alot more fun when i was playing Grand Theft Auto. Then you'll notice, hey! this is Grand Theft Auto!
Summary: I bought this game as I'm a huge fan of the Godfather series, even though I was sure EA would ruin it somehow. I'm no fan of EA and their sport sims, which are high on style but lack substance - everyone knows for example that if you want a good football game you buy Pro Evolution not Fifa. So, when I saw that EA were going to touch the Godfather I was apprehensive and wished it had been developed by Rockstar instead. Though this game is enjoyable, it is very easy.
Summary: This seemed a great idea: taking an iconic movie trilogy, full of cold, calculated and ruthless "business" and making a free-roaming game about it. This was a potentially GTA beating game...it isn't. It seems rushed and despite the game going on about "La Familia" you are always alone, a mafioso RAmbo taking over NYC on your own. The businesses are all the same. I broke into three warehouses in three different boroughs (there are five in total) and all were indentical.
Summary: I was expecting this game to be as good as, or even better, than GTA, but it is a big disappoint. You cant see anything on the map cause it odes not let you zoom in at all. How am I suppose to know which business to extort if i dont know where it is. And the physics engine....where is it? you turn the wheel in a car and it jsut turns without any trouble. And the cars look really dodgy too. i didnt know they had window tints in the 1940's.
Excerpt: The Godfather shocked all WWF fans a few months back by changing his ways and joining the RTC but why many people asked. This man was once the one of the most popular superstars in the WWF with his regular routine of bringing ladies to the ring and doing songs with top american rap artists. Then one day Steven (white socks) Richards started to cost him matches and put bags on the ladies.
Excerpt: In my opinion the new look of the Godfather the Goodfather and his merry bunch of crazy fools are just messing up with the entetainment of the WWF. they come out every show with that stupid siren playing and then chatting about nothing for 5 minutes before trying to beat another team. instead of cleaning the wwf up they are tempting people to do more outrageous stuff. by me this is fine. they should practice what they preach.
Excerpt: The Godfather was (and possibly still is) one of the worst wrestlers in the WWF. His matches used to last around 30 seconds. His moves (the ho train? gimme a break) were uninspired. His crowd patter and the ladies just about made up for it. Luckily the Godfather is no more. The WWF in their wisdom has decided that the patter and the Ho's had just about run their course (though many of the less enlightened members of the audience probably haven't tired of badly dressed...
