Leave the game. Take the cannoli.

Abraham Rogers, Amazon
2 January 2007
  • Summary: "Godfather: Mob Wars" gets full marks for atmosphere, but after a fun start the game gets bogged down by a clumsy turn-based interface and repetitive level design. The idea is a good one: you play a young street hood named Aldo, who is eager to rise through the ranks of the Corleone family after his father is murdered for his loyalty to Don Vito.

Comes up a little short

L. Wolf "ldub", Amazon

  • Summary: It's an enjoyable game, and the premise is cool: you're the guy behind the scenes of the original movie, doing the Corleones' dirty work. You're the guy Clamenza tells to "leave the gun. Take the cannoli," you put the horse head in the director's bed, etc... Unfortunately, one week after purchasing the game, I've finished both the story mode and mob wars section.

50/50 Not Great but not Bad

Dan .J .P, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: The Godfather is not a bad game but it isn't as good as the PC version. The PC version allowed character creation and free roaming so i bought the PSP version thinking it will be the same but unfortunately it isn't. You don't even get to drive anymore, you just jump from one mission to another. Mission themselves are not bad but got a little repetitive nearer the end.

Decent but as previously said, flawed

J Coventry, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: The fact this game lacks any roaming outside the story mode is a serious disappointment and let down. I completed the story mode and became the Don in less than a week - now I can't do anything more with this game. If you don't mind games that you can complete quickly, I would recommend because it is fun but it won't last you long.

Good fun & movie sequences but gamplay is flawed

S. Bickers, amazon.co.uk
30 March 2007
  • Summary: This game is alot fun and has a decent learning curve as you progress through the missions. Cleverly these missions follow the film's progression, actually expanding on some of the film's scenes, and are complimented with a variety of well presented movie sequences. Indeed all of the cast have been converted well into the game with the one glaring, and perhaps crucial, exception of Michael Corleone.On paper the Mob Wars part of the game sounds pretty unappealing but it...

fun but flawed

Stephen Mcguigan, amazon.co.uk
10 December 2006
  • Summary: im a big fan of the godfather series so i was excited about being able to play the godfather game on my psp, so i went out and bought it. At first i really enjoyed the game killing gangsters etc but i soon became frustrated by the akward camera angles which have made me fail missions numerous times and the fact in shootouts instead of auto aiming to the guy next to me who is shooting me it will aim at a civillian the otherside of the road getting me killed.This game is...

A offer you can refuse

leonardo, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: This has all been done before. Whatever inspiration The Godfather movie may have provided mobster-game designers over the past decades, the boat for this genre sailed long ago, and The Godfather game seems like a desperate attempt to catch up. It plays like the counterparts it may have inspired, namely the GTA series and Mafia.

well its pretty good

Mr. Mohamed R. Jaffer "mohamed242", amazon.co.uk
10 March 2006
  • Summary: The book by Mario Puzo and the classic film serve as inspiration here, as gamers will join the Corleone family and earn respect through loyalty and fear as they rise through the ranks to become Don in a living 1945-1955 New York. It will be up to the player to carry out orders, earn respect and make New York City their own.

Could be better

NeilSuchak, Play.com
25 January 2006
  • Conclusion: I bought this game and the guide but because on some other reveiws it said the game was long but as i read the guide it seemed to make no sense and no help at all.Back to the game i found the story mode was very short and the mob wars seem to repeat as the missions are almost all the same so if you are going to buy this dont waste your money on on it but i would say £10-£15 would suit it

worth £15, but dont get too excited

  • Conclusion: good storyline, however i fail to see the point in mob wars, it just slows the gameplay down. But i have to say it is worth the £15, the main storyline is top class.
