The Godfather: The Game
Developer: EA
Publisher: EA
Website: Official site



I'll make you an offer you can't refuse. You hand over 40 to your local gaming emporium and you will not be sleeping with the fishes tonight. It's not personal, strictly business, you understand.

Anyways, now that I have that out of the way, let me tell you about the Godfather. If, like me, your heart drops a little when you see an EA logo on the cover of a game, you can breathe a sigh of relief. This game is actually decent. Enjoyable, large and a decent challenge. Although there is one feature in it, which I hope does not become common-place in games, and that is the practice of having weapons in-game, which you can only buy with real money. I'll just point out how annoying that is in a game. You spend a load of time driving, killing and levelling up your character. And then you hear of a rumour of a powerful weapon that will dispatch people with one shot, using only headshot kills. And when you get to the vendor, he explains that he only takes Microsoft points.

Ever feel like your game wants to mug you? You will when you get to that point. If anybody reads this that has the power to change this, please remember that I do not want to pay anything extra for something as innocuous as a weapon to use in the main portion of the game. Extra levels? Not a problem. Extra cars? I'll happily part with cash. But a machine gun with an exotic name? That is the sort of behaviour that even Don Corleone would frown upon.

But forgetting that, this game has also got a healthy and comprehensive "rap sheet", so that you can check out your progress in this game away from the Xbox site in EA's own Godfather portal. Here is mine. There are many different ways to ventilate the goombahs, and an excellent map that will allow you to pinpoint things like safes that you have to crack and also the banks that you can rob. As a matter of fact, the map in this game is probably the best in all of the Xbox360 games I have played up to this point.

Anyways, this game is definitely one to purchase and own.
