Summary: I have been a fan of the Godfather movies for years (except for part 3). Even read the book (a great read too!). So when EA released this game, I HAD to get the limited edition version. And it's well worth the extra money (at the time when it came out; it's under $10 now, used). The game had sort of a Grand Theft Auto style to it, but the guys at EA made great use of the Playstation control.
Summary: I was one of 10 people from around the world (one flew in from Naples!) invited to Electronic Arts in San Francisco to preview the game, meet and talk with the game developers, and take a tour of EA's main campus. I'm not much of gamer in general. The last console I owned was a Sega, ok? So, I nervously (yet also curiously) sat down with this game to give it a shot. Wow. First off, the graphics were great!
Summary: The Godfather follows some of the storyline of the movie of the same name. You get to create a character and work your way up through the ranks of the Corleone family until you finish up as Godfather of New York. Great game play and graphics, great story line. Choice of weapons, cars, and a large map to play through. 1920's America never was more inviting. Although you may feel the need to put cotton balls in your cheeks and speak like Brando.
Summary: Absolutely amazing game, this game makes you feel like your in the movie. Great graphics, movie clips, player customization and realism. You can really feel the 40s and 50s in this game. Brilliant game for anyone especially if you love the film and the family/mafia era.
