Storyline is pretty nice, it's not Godfather worthy but it's cool. Strategy plays a cool role in this game, having an engineer, demolition expert, arsonist, etc by your side to approach enemies in multiple ways. It's a really fun and addicting game. Longer then most games coming out lately which is a good thing. Honestly I know that if I beat the game, there won't be much else to do, but at least you can free roam which should be fun. I mean other games lately last 7 hrs and nothing else to do afterwards. Don't judge a game on reviews, especially gamespot's, 4.5 is ridiculous. Rent the game and see if you like it because I really do, there's a lot of intresting things to do. Final word in my opinion is, if you liked the first Godfather game, you will without a doubt probably like this one too, if not more.
