4.0 out of 5 stars Give it time, 5 April 2006
This review is from: The Godfather (PS2) (Video Game)
I was originally going to review this game after just a couple of hours of gameplay...
After all, it didnt have the 'grand theft auto' style gameplay I was expecting, and actually found the focus was on foot missions, with a clunky interface reminiscant of 'The Getaway'.
However, I decided to wait to give it a chance, and I'm glad I did.
Now i'm 15 hours in, 50% complete, and, well the missions are still mainly on foot based, through the clunky interface, which you get used to, but sometimes can be a handicap in sticky situations.
My main gripe is the camera, while you can move it yourself to get great views around you, when its tracking your movement it can be slow to follow a change of direction.
But those are my only real gripes, the game has the same addictiveness, and free roam style of Grand theft auto, and you will spend hours playing, and catch yourself 'just one more mission'.
The side games of assasinations and extorting buisnesses is a nice touch, and gives the game extra depth - although the interiors are very repetitive, with what seems like only about 5 on offer.
While this is handy, meaning you know your way around and where the enemies are hiding, it is a touch dissapointing and does get dull.
All in all, its a good game, flawed, but still enjoyable, and if you like GTA/Getaway style games, you will probably enjoy this.
