Oh dear, what have Electronic Arts done now?
They've taken one of the greatest movies of all time and palmed us off with an average game under the same name.
The Godfather games story follows the movie, but you don't play as one of the main characters, instead you take the part of a new member of the family and follow the action from the sidelines. You do get to partake in some of the movies more memorable scenes, placing the horses head in the bed for instance, but you don't get to be the Godfather or anything. This is probably the best way they could have done things though as playing one of the main characters would have limited the game even more.
As it is, the game is just another Grand Theft Auto clone, and not a particularly good one. The movies storyline make up the games main missions and whilst they do take longer to play than watching the film it's still completed all too quickly and isn't a fraction of the size of other games of this type, especially not Rockstars game that they've so obviously ripped off.
There's still plenty to do apart from the story, but it's all very repetitive stuff, drive here, kill such snd such, and so on. The game also has more than it's fair share of bugs and glitches, getting stuck halfway through a wall, non player characters just mouthing at you rather than speaking and being unable to complete missions through no fault of your own are just a few of the problems I had with the game. The games graphics aren't even that good, especially as this is meant to be next gen, and are little different from the Xbox and PS2 versions of the game.
The games not bad, but really it's a case of seen it all before, but if you're a fan of the GTA series or the movie then this is worth a rental, but I really couldn't recommend this as a purchase, not when the same game can be found cheaper on other consoles.
I can see why Francis Ford Coppola wasn't happy about the game.

Good review.

Sorry about the low rate, but without knowing much about either The Godfather or GTA, this isn't a particularly useful review.
