This review originally posted at MentalGamers - http://www.mentalgamers.com/game_reviews.php?r=8I'm told there was uproar among fans of The Godfather movies when they heard EA were making The Godfather The Game, but to be honest I don't really...

How does any game do justice when paying homage to a cinematic masterpiece? The simple answer is, it can’t, especially with a movie as legendary as Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather. But the attempt here is certainly ambitious. The...

From the second the iconic music starts, you get the feeling EA has handled the game of The Godfather with the respect it deserves. For starters, Marlon Brando, James Caan and Robert Duvall reprise their roles from the film. The game stars you as a...

Unlike some big movie licenses - Star Wars or Lord of the Rings for instance - The Godfather doesnt instantly leap out as being a particularly suitable candidate for video game conversion. But while characters and events may have been borrowed from...

The GTA-style, anti-hero genre may be getting very flooded with run-of-the-mill games, but that hasn’t stopped EA from throwing their hat into the ring to hop on this cash-cow. Not only that, but they’ve done so with a vengeance by snapping...

Maybe we shouldn’t be too disappointed. When EA bought the rights to The Godfather it was shooting for the moon, and when you aim that high you either succeed brilliantly, or fall down to the ground in flames. Still, when you adapt the latest...

The Godfather: The Game puts you in the role of a young mobster taken under the wing of the Corleone family. Featuring Grand Theft Auto-like gameplay, the games storylines intersect with those of the cult 1972 movie, and features voice acting from...

International Review By ITpro.no on 50

Som en adapsjon av tidligere versjoner av Gudfaren-spillene fungerer dette spillet greit, men mye av det som gjorde dem interessant er borte. Mob Wars-modusen er klart underholdende, men den helt store levetiden har dette spillet desverre ikke....

International Review By Hardware-Test on 83

Når alt kommer til alt vil jeg sige at jeg her sidder med et spil der ligger langt under middel, der findes nogle få fede funktioner i spillet, og er du en af dem der ikke må spille computer i mere end en time om dagen, så er her klart underholdning...

International Review By FZ.se on 60

Respekt - ett ord med många betydelser. En är aktning eller vördnad, en annan påtvingad lydnad. Som sicilianskt råskinn i New Yorks 40-tal erhåller du både beundran och fruktan, vilket är nödvändigt för att klättra till maffians topposition och...

International Review By Subdogs on 80

Den klassiska Gudfadern-filmen är som gjord för att bli spel, om man bara vågar riskera fansens kritik. Klokt nog så spelar man inte någon av de kända figurerna utan en nykomling som jobbar sig upp i organisationen. Man har därför kunnat ta sig...

SPILLTEST: Når en av historiens mest klassiske filmserier gjøres om til spill, må det vekke sterke følelser. EA har håndtert dette relativt...

International Review By TweakUp on

Markedet for spil er noget af det man ser størst udvikling i for tiden, hvor det hele bliver mere og mere realistisk som teknologien tillader det. Men der dukker også spil op som er skabt omkring rammerne til virkeligheden og fantasien. The...

International Review By Smartson on

Gudfadern är ett filmlicensspel, med alla originalskådespelare förutom Al Pacino, som bygger på upplägget från spelet Grand Theft Auto. Underhållande och snyggt med utmärkt ljud, tycker...
