One for the Fans
on 30 September 2014
This game is defiantly one for the fans, I was impressed how each event in the film your character was molded into. With good shoot outs and brutal executions fighting was fun. Designing your character and choosing what your wear also gave the game an edge when being involved with the cut scenes.
Having said that in some elements the game felt rushed, if you were looking for a GTA game with a solid story line and great free roaming you may think to reconsider. The setting of New York didn't really set the the scene, not because of the graphics but the way you interacted with city. Games like GTA and more similar Mafia Two had the attention to detail which does does make a big difference. Don't expect all the characters from the film to be in the game or if they are their not in it for long. If you are looking for a Mafia style game, Mafia 1 or Two would be a better investment with the games roughly being the same price.
Overall if you are looking for a fun game with good shoot outs and a fan of The Godfather I would recommend it.
