Although lots of missions from and inspired by the movie are promised you actually play a completely new character and control them over a period of ten years, between 1945 and 1955. During this time you get to take part in all manner of mobster type activities including managing protection rackets, assassination missions and full blown gang wars against the five different mob families in the game.
Despite all the big name stars lending their voices and faces to the game its actually New York that seems to be the main star with a highly impressive, if somewhat sparsely populated, virtual city. The graphics are excellent, although it remains to be seen just how much variety there is to the missions, considering the game cant really go to some of the more surreal excess of Grand Theft Auto. So even if this isnt quite an offer you cant refuse, its at least looking like one to be taken very seriously. --Harrison Dent
