I think that the Godfather was a pretty good game, but I'm not willing to put it in the upper tier GTA level games. Although it is basically a game based on the most greatest movie of all time, thats the only fact that got sales for this game. Let's face it, if the game were called, "Mafia mahem" and wasn't based on the godfather, but still had the exact same game features, the game would have gotten bad reviews. I definitely agree that the map sucked. It was way too repetitive. Everytime I drove down the street, I felt as though I were driving in bedrock...the same ****ing building kept showing up. It was like a loop, until you reached the designated building or area. I also thought that the car physics were a little too clunky, although I am talking about cars from the 1940's. The only good thing about the cars was the way they blew up, which I thought was pretty cool and definitely accurate if such a car were too explode.
The aim could have been better, but I'm not complaining...it was accurate as hell. Not to mention that you can take down an enemy by shooting them in the knee's which is good, except that they get right back up after a few seconds. But, it's perfect for incapacitating an enemy for a little while. Then we get into the finishers. Thats right, you can do a special move when you approach an opponent close enough. My favorites were the revolver and the shot gun. Plus, it's gory!!!! This game isn't quite good enough to get an A, but it's definitely B quality.
