Overall, okay for a bit but gets boring

  • Excerpt: I have watched all the Godfather movies and had to buy this game to see if it matched up as I loved the gangster trilogy immensely. The game is okay but unfortunately for me did not live up to the movies.

Fun but is that enough......?

  • Summary: First of I think that its unfair to compare this game to a GTA:SA, mainly as The Godfather that game was released 2 full years after the former, but also because in my opinion no game copying the style of GTA will ever live up to its standards (with the possible exception of Saints Row), and this...

  • Summary: Now the reference to GTA is very very obvious and I don't have to spell it out to you do I? Just the free roam and drive around to get your mission. Besides that it involves individual ideas that are that you are a gangster in the mafia and you kill other gang members, extort businesses and somehow...

  • Summary: If you've ever played the GTA series I think you'll be quite disappointed as I was. All areas of the city look the same, there are about 5 different cars and the challenges are very very samey. You can't jump or climb so it's all rather linear.

Good game, but certainly not GRAND

  • Summary: Like most movie to game changeovers, the game usually doesn't live up to the hit of its big screen version. However, this game was good (not bad) but by no means a classic like the Grand Theft Auto Series that continues to amaze us each time.

Not that good...

  • Summary: I'm surprised at the 4 star average rating. I found this game horribly imitative of GTA and Mafia; it felt most of the time like a patch on the GTA engine to cash in on the film series.

Not Bad

  • Summary: This game tries to do too many things; give you the freedom of Grand Theft Auto, with the style of the Godfather movies. It does do both reasonably well, but unfortunatley falls short in too many areas to be a great game.

Good, but not that good... Capische?!

  • Summary: I bought this game on its uk release and i must say the first 11 hours or so of gameplay were very good. However i wasnt totally blown away. The hype from all of these reviews is never worth giving it 5/5 until you actually play the game and see for yourself.

An offer you should at least have second thoughts about...

Mr. Od Smith "d2kvirus", amazon.co.uk
27 March 2006
  • Summary: You're asking for trouble if your game falls into one of these three categories: based on a classic film (especially if it's considered one of the very best), it's delayed before release, or it walks into the territory of one of the very best games out of there.
