Excerpt: Just how big will online console gaming get? One of the indicators of it success is hinged on how well Microsofts XSN sport series does. The new XSN online capabilities, exclusive to the Xbox will raise the bar for all of its competitors.
Excerpt: To write a review of The Godfather without mentioning the Grand Theft Auto series would be an impossibility. Rockstar’s criminal franchise has spawned many capable copycats, and EA’s gaming adaptation of the Mario Puzo novel and 1972 movie of the same name just so happens to be one of them.
Conclusion: The Godfather is a very good game in general, but as the second rendition of the title hits the Xbox 360 we were expecting just a little bit more in the way of new content. There’s plenty of gameplay to be had, so if you haven’t taken up your place in the Corleone family yet, this is the version...
Conclusion: I am a great fan of The Godfather saga, and while I don’t feel any game could do true justice to the sheer creative impact of the Corleone family, this game makes us one hell of an offer I couldn’t refuse. Next stop, hopefully Vegas! Top Game Moment:
Conclusion: The plot and voice acting are great, and despite a few minor problems, the core gameplay works well. The only really big negative is the "DLC", a cheap marketing ploy by EA to get some of your money. It's up to you to decide whether that's a big enough problem to avoid the game entirely.
Excerpt: Whatever you think of Electronic Arts, you can't argue that they make games that appeal to a large audience. The Godfather was released for current-gen systems and PC earlier this year, and surprised many people by being a very competent GTA clone set within the Godfather universe.
