Windows 10 Review for Dummies

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

The Godfather Screenshots

Developer: EA Redwood Shores
Ship Date: Fall 2005
Category: Action-Shooter-Consequential

Welcome to the Corleone family. After a life of small-time jobs and petty thefts you've been accepted into America 's most famous criminal organization. Now it's up to you to carry out orders, earn respect, rise through the ranks, and make New York City your own. Play your cards right and you could even be running everything as the next, and most powerful, Don.

A story about family, respect and loyalty, The Godfather book by Mario Puzo and film by Paramount Pictures serve as inspiration for the game as you join the Corleone family and earn respect through loyalty and fear as you rise through the ranks to become Don in a living, 1945-1955 New York. The Godfather™ The Game will put you at the center of action in one of history's most revered cinematic masterpieces, allowing you to create yourself in the game, and then choose your path as you rise from lowly outsider to envied and feared Don.

The Godfather will offer gamers countless choices for solving the family's problems with brutal violence, skillful diplomacy, or a cunning mixture of both. From mob hits and bank heists to drive-bys and extortion, step deep inside the world of The Godfather where intimidation and negotiation are your tickets to the top. Players will use their powers of loyalty and fear to earn respect through interactions with characters in the world. Decisions made by the player in the game will have lasting consequences, just as it was in the mob underworld featured in The Godfather fiction.

The Godfather film from Paramount Pictures featured some of Hollywood 's finest actors and several are contributing to the game's development. All character likenesses from the movie will be included and lending their voices to add a dramatic and cinematic touch to the game are the late Marlon Brando as Don Vito Corleone, James Caan as Sonny Corleone and Robert Duvall as consigliore Tom Hagen.

•Â  Respect and Consequences: Players will use their powers of loyalty and fear to earn respect throughout New York City . Decisions made by the player in the game will have lasting consequences.

•Â  Persistent world of The Godfather: Your character will interact freely with other characters in the world. Depending on your needs and how you choose to play the game, by violent or intimidating means or respectful or negotiating means, the characters in the world will remember your interactions

•Â  Blackhand Controls: Being a gangster has never felt so good and Blackhand will put the power of intimidation in the hands of the player. An analog control-based combat system will give players the use of both analog sticks and shoulder buttons to execute punches, kicks, grabs and even allow you to strangle an opponent.

•Â  Pressure Point Targeting: It's not always a smart idea to knock someone off right away, and Pressure Point targeting will help lock on less lethal parts of an opponent's body so they're still around to give information vital to you.

•Â  Control New York : The Corleone's control of New York will be challenged by the four families from the fiction including the Barzini Cuneo, Stracci and Tattaglia families.

•Â  Academy Award winning composer Bill Conti and Emmy Award winning composer Ashley Irwin are collaborating to create over 100 minutes of new music, in addition to the classic soundtrack from the film.
