4.0 out of 5 stars Godfather 2, 1 Jun. 2009
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: The Godfather II (PS3) (Video Game)
Now,this review is going to be kept short(i hope!!).
This game is very enjoyable,more so if you played the first game,as it continues the theme,not only story wise but graphically as well and this is where a lot of people critised this game including so called magazine reviewers who get paid lots of money to do so.
The 2 godfather games have their own style grafically,if you can accept that,then there is no problem,but if anyone thought that these were going to be graphical master pieces,then thats their problem!!!
I'll be honest,we would all like the graphic quality of games such as Uncharted,Tomb Raider,Chronicles of Riddick..Assault on dark Athena,and i am so looking forward to Mafia 2,not only because of the graphics,but i'm hoping for a great story line as well.
The point i'm trying to make is judge the game(s) for what they are,an adaptation of 2 of the greatest films ever made set in a period of underworld violence trying to give that grainy feel to them,as they did with the movie Raging Bull,filmed in black & White,if it had been in colour it would not have been acknowleged as it was,it gave the feel of that period in time.
The game is a great game if your interested in that period of time of gangsters and accept that if they had completly changed the graphics i.e Mafia 2 style,they would not be 2 games in a series but 2 seperate games related by the titles.
If anyone didn't read magazine reviews and looked on line before the game's release,then they may well be disappointed,but anyone who did, knew what the graphics were going to be like and therefore knew what they were purchasing.
This is definately a game that not only you must persevere with as you play it the 1st time,but actually enjoy more the more you play it,2nd/3rd time,(like the baseball bat execution..say no more).I enjoyed this game alot because i accepted it for what it was(and i checked it out before i purchased it,mag reviews and on line).so i didn't waste my money.
The only niggles i have are these one's,call me boring,old fashioned even,but it was dissappointing to know that you would never get your crew to maximum attributes unless you played "online",which i think is a kick in the teeth by the game makers,i paid my money i would like the whole game as i'm sure i'm not the only one who has no interest what's so ever to play online.This i think is starting to creep in on certain games,Fable 2 is another(in the derilict old guild building,where there is a chest,that you cannot open unless your playing online),i think all gamers should start a campaign,either to stop this practise,or have 2 seperate games single player and online versions!!!!!!!
I think that's all i have to say with regard to this game,but my advise to all those who felt dissapointed,check the games out that you maybe thinking about buying before you purchase,that way you will not waste your money,then start complaining,or have sour grapes about the game(s) saying they are rubbish!!!
