Game Review: The Godfather


My wife just brought me home a copy of the Godfather for Xbox (I am so loved).
I've played it for about an hour, and I have to say I am impressed enough to write about it.
The game looks and feels like a GTA game. The controls are a little different. Third person view with movable camera angles. Huge city to play in (NYC), both on foot and in cars. A wide selection of weapons, plus a pretty neat melee system.
The city is incredible. I haven't explored it in depth, but the graphics are nice. It really captures the feel from the movie.
As I am not far into the game, I don't know how well it stick's to the movie plot, but so far, I've seen some characters I know, and the glimpse of the Godfather is dead on. I don't know if Brando actually did the voices for the game, but you would think so by the sound of it.
I guess I still have a lot to learn before I give it a thorough review; story line, playability, challenge, replay value, etc. But from first impressions, it looks awesome and what I hoped it would be.


I was actually going ot post a thread about this once I had actually picked up a copy.

From the clips I've seen I got the same impression in that it would be a slightly more sophisticated GTA.

I think I'll break down and pick it up tomorrow.


It looks like a great game.I think I'm gonna buy it.I need something to hold me til Halo 3 hits stores.Until then I got all new Elder Scrolls oblivion(for x box 360) and the new God Father game.


Supposedly Brando did the voice right before he died.


This looks like a great game as I am a HUGE fan of the Godfather movies. Several of the actors did lend their voices to the game, including Brando, James Caan, and Robert Duvall. Problem is, I don't really have all that much time to play these days, and I still have two GTA games I have not finished yet, so I am trying to justify another game purchase.


hey man, check out G.R.A.W. for the 360, its freakin amazing.



How do you like Elder Scrolls IV? The IA is supposed to be awesome. I haven't got me copy yet, but I loved ESIII Morrowind.

Also how do you like the Xbox 360 console?
