Trivia

While the game missions do run parallel to the events in The Godfather (1972), there is one mission that comes direct from the novel. As seen in the opening moments of the movie, Bonasera the undertaker asks Don Vito to take action against the young men who beat and attempted to rape his daughter. Though it's not seen in the movie, in the book, Don Vito has Clemenza's men, including Paulie Gatto, to 'teach the boys a lesson'. You, the player, get to participate in beating the boys. See more »

Goofs

When targeting Marty 'Monk' Malone, he is identified as a Capo (three stripes), despite him being acknowledged (by himself) as being an outsider - merely an associate. He states that he was never 'made', and therefore never held the rank of Soldier either. See more »

Quotes

Willie Cicci: Sal, Tom, the boss says for you two to go on ahead, and he'll follow in a seperate car.
Salvatore 'Sal' Tessio: Hell, he can't that, it screws up my arrangements.
Willie Cicci: Well, that's what he said.
Tom Hagen: I can't go either Sal.
Salvatore 'Sal' Tessio: [sighs, realising] Tell Mike it was only business. I always liked him.
Tom Hagen: He understands that.

Very well done

The thing that i like most about the game is that it follows the main plot of the movie while also creating a story of its own. In the game you will be able to play the missions from the movie and also do a few that were mentioned but you never saw them. For example you get to be the living crap out of the two guys that beat Bonasera's daughter and you get to sneak into Jack Woltz' mansion and do a little stealth stuff with a garrot wire until you finally reach his bedroom.

The game is kind of like gta with a free roaming mode but i wouldn't say they copied them, gta just created a new saught of thing for gangster games. You can do the usual stuff like on any other mafia game such as killing randoms, stealing cars, robbing banks and bombing places. You can get a good range of weapons and it is pretty cool being able to use 1930's tommy guns, pistols, shotguns and molotovs. The cars are a bit over the top but the handling of them is simple enough. A thing that will get to anyone though is how accurate New York is. You will find that you keep having to look at the huge map in the start menu to make sure that you don't get lost. It will take you about half an hour to get used to controls but once you learn them you are covered.

In the game you will encounter all the same guys you saw in the movie such as Clemenza, Rocco, Al Neri, Tom Hagen etc. The only issue i have with one of the characters is that he is not the same and i am talking about Michael. The guy does not have the same personality and is not the cool smooth Michael that we experienced in the film. James Cann and Robert Duvall reprise their roles and do an excellent job with the voices and so do a few other guys.

I would recommend this game to anyone who is a godfather freak unless you have something wrong with people making it into a game and even if you haven't seen the movie or don't like it, it is a great gangster game.
