Trivia

Al Pacino was unable to reprise his famous Michael Corleone character, because he had already signed a likeness agreement with another gaming company for Scarface: The World Is Yours (2006). As a result, EA/Paramount cannot use his voice or likeness for the game. However, since EA/Paramount owns the rights to the Godfather story and characters, the Michael Corleone character does still appear in the game, just with a different look and a new actor, Joseph May, providing his voice.

Goofs

During the infamous scene of Sollozzo telling Tom Hagen that Don Corleone survived the hit, Sollozzo says "Well, that's bad luck for me, and bad luck for you!". Afterwards, his mouth still moves, but nothing is said. See more »

Quotes

Michael Corleone: Just lie here Pop. Just lie here. I'll take care of you now. I'm with you now... I'm with you.
Don Vito Corleone: [Brando's last recording] You know, it's a lot of foolishness about this Sollozzo business. It's so unfortunate, it's really unnecessary. Gave him my 'no' with common courtesy. I told him his business would not interfere with mine. And uh, he wouldn't take it right. I know the Tattaglia family has brought down misfortune on our own heads. Well, that's life. Everybody's got their own tale of sorrow.

Grand theft auto spawned a whole new generation of free form, sandbox game. From Streets of LA to Mafia. This is EA's take on the subject using The Godfather for limited inspiration.

The game itself is very lacklustre and anyone who has played similar games will immediately see that this is a very poor example of both how to make a game and how to use what is solid gold subject matter. Considering the quality of the original film it seems surprising that this game made it out the door.

The graphics are no better - and in fact worse than Mafia even though this game was released some 3 years ago. In a similar vein the city is a dog to drive around and to make matters worse the cars are some of the worst ever done in a game of this type.

The actual game itself is over far far far too quickly. Whereas similar titles have some 50 to a 100 levels the Godfather gives a meagre 25 and most of these are either small or taken up at the start as tutorial missions. The remainder are usually just generic missions with only a few relating to the film.

Action in the game is equally bothersome. At times it seems as though enemies are either made of wet tissue paper or are full on bullet proof. You will very often find yourself cursing at the screen because a mobster takes 5 magnum hits to the chest and takes you down with one seemingly devastating long range shotgun blast. The only saving grace is the style that you get to execute some finishing moves; with names such as hats off execution or Face-off execution.

All in all this is not worth the time or money. Its just a lazy way for EA to cash in on a game area that they have no expertise in. Rent the game, borrow it or play it at a friends. mafia handles the same subject of 1940's gangsters better and Grand theft auto gives you far more too do and gives you a hell of a lot more fun while you do it.
