= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars
I personally am a fan of the films and the book, and was scepical about buying the game reading the mixed reviews on the internet, but when i got the game i was suprised by just how fun the game is. The gameplay is superb, easy to control and the gun fighting in my opinion is far superior to the gta series, even though i am a massive fan, the missions draw you into the story making you feel part of the 'family'. The side missions like hit contracts and extortion of business are very enjoyable as well, the hit contracts giving you back stroies into the gangsters dealings with the Corleones.
The only problems i think that are in the game are the driving, which if you hit a car, no matter how small the hit or speed you are driving at, always stops you outright and you cannot shoot from your car. Also building interiors are heavily recycled, which is good if you want to memorise the layout of a warehouse but does get a tad boring.
Even though i am a critic of EA's other games this game nearly lives up to the masterpiece of a film.
