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

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.
Excerpt: Spelet börjar med att en liten pojke mitt framför sina ögon får se sin far bli ihjälskjuten. När han blir växer upp beslutar han sig för att gå med i Corleone-familjen för att hämnas för sin far, och det är upp till spelaren att bestämma hur han ska se ut.
Pros: kontrollen, slagsmålen och eldstriderna
Cons: dålig bilfysik, lite väl grått och några uppdrag som inte är roliga
