4.0 out of 5 stars if you're a die-hard fan of the series, get it., 15 Aug. 2010
This game, as with all Madden games is basically just an improved version of it's predecessor. It's a lot of fun and I'm not even a fan of American Football but I still enjoyed it. If you don't know anything about American Football then don't worry, neither did I until I got Madden 09 which taught me a lot pretty quickly. I rented Madden 10 and didn't think it was enough of an improvement to warrant a purchase but after playing the demo for this and renting it I believe it has been improved enough now.

Basically, if you are a die-hard fan of the series, get it. If you don't own any other Madden games, rent first then decide. If you have a previous version of Madden I'd reccommend skipping a year between each new game ('09, '11, '13) etc. because I find that while it is improved, it's not £40 improved and you can have almost the same experience playing the previous game.

I was sceptical about this book, but it is written in such an upbeat way that it makes you get up and chang things. Worth the spend, please can we have one for boys.

The Godfather (Xbox)

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good game., 9 July 2007
This review is from: The Godfather (Xbox) (Video Game)
The Godfather is a hugely playable game, I have played it through 6 or 7 times and still find new things to do. The game sticks very closely to the plot of the film and must be given credit for that.

The opening scene has you playing as a member of the Corleone family, this is the basic training for the game such as movement and unarmed combat, after completeing this you see a short cutscene and your character is killed. The next scene shows the wedding of Don Corleones daughter. A woman who we learn to be the wife of the dead man enters and begs Don Corleone to save her son who has fallen in with a bad crowd. The Don sends Luca Brasi in time for you to get revenge on the gang members who were beating you up.

The game soon teaches you the basics and allows to roam free quite quickly. You can extort shopkeepers, buy out racketeers, rob banks, corrupt police officers and generally do the kind of things you would expect in a Godfather game. You must then climb the ranks by completeing various missions, from being an idle associate so a made man, the underboss/consigliere and finally maybe the Don of the Corleone family and if you stick at the game long enough... Don of New York!

Some peolpe may criticise it for not being realistic sometimes, such as being to kill 10-15 people without the police bothering you as long as you line the correct pockets, but it makes it fun. You cannot help but feel proud when you place a perfect headshot on a rival family underboss from 2 metres away without him realising you were there.

The rival families are the same as in the film, the Tattaglias, Cuneos, Straccis abd the Barzinis. They play a huge role in the game as you may have to fight your way through 6 or 7 guards to reach the shopkeeper but you still feel proud when you do. The street fights with other families are brilliant and really make you grin evilly when you see 4 or 5 Cuneos who are chasing you get mown down as you fly past the guards on the Corleone compund.
The compounds are crucial to the game as you must control them all to control New York. Compunds are some of the most heavily guarded installations in the game and can be brutes to try and conquer; however when you do so, you cannot help but realise how easy taking out business guards actually is and really help you in the game.

All in all The Godfather is a brilliant game, by all standards and definitely is a requirement to all video gamers collections; if you are a fan of the films or not, you cannot help but like the game. Apart from a few minor problems such as only a few types of vehicle, The Godfather is pure excellence.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stubbs the zombie, a fun, funny and gory brain eating spree, 11 Feb. 2006
One of the few games that allows you to actually play as a zombie. Stubbs is a character that you can really understand and feel sorry for. An unlucky business man who, when visiting a possible client is shotgunned in the stomach.
The game takes place a few years after the incident in the beautiful, futuristic city of 'Punchbowl' built over the site where Stubbs was murdered. You play as Stubbs when he comes back, with new abilities and needs, like a hunger for brains. You must play through the levels 'persuading' humans to give you their brains and join you zombie army. This is one of the most essential skills in the game, making a zombie army. These zombies will follow you around and help you perform tasks and are basically your bodyguard. They can also convert humans into zombies and are great as moving bullet shields, although they are not as good as Stubbs, lacking his abilities.
Stubbs' abilities are extraordinairy and innovative, you slowly unlock them during the game and they can be replenished by eating brains. These mainly involve using various parts of your body to take out enemies. The first of these special attacks is the 'Unholy Flatuance', this stuns all enemies within range and leaves them open to a quick snack on their brains. Second you get the ability to take out your Pancreas and throw it, like a grenade, detonating it remotely or just leaving it to explode within a few seconds. You then gain the ability to remove your arm and control it as a seperate character. You can then posess enemies and take advantage of any guns they may be carrying. Last, but by no means least, you receive the ability to remove your head and bowl it at enemies while it spits at enemies, infecting them and then it detonates, zombifying any enemies within the blast radius.
The one major let-down with stubbs is the length of it. It is far too short. You can be left wondering why the game has ended so quickly. However the sheer enjoyment of the levels will make you want to play them over and over again. The graphics, soundtrack and design of the levels fits perfectly with the time of the game, a 1950's idea of the future. Stubbs is one of the games that will burn itself into your mind. I would reccomend it to anyone.
