    The offer you couldn't refuse just got better.

    Needs perfection in this game as there is some features are not well define in this game but overall I rank it fair.

    Godfather is good but it is not as good as Mafia .Mafia is based on the real story there is no real act which is being seen on Godfather and we cannot go anywhere in the cities but for the missions.I feel that this can ... Read Full Review

    The Godfather: The Don's Edition Brief Review

    Anyone who says the PS3 version is no different to the PS2 version is completely wrong. Graphically, it is far superior and looks fantastic on a large high definition screen. The dynamic weather effects look great, the b... Read Full Review

    The Godfather Blackhand edition is a surprisingly good and polished sandbox game for the wii.

    The wii hasn't had many sandbox (open world games), there are only a hand few and the godfather is one of the few. The godfather uses motion controls to shoot, punch and grab objects and people. The story line and cut sc... Read Full Review
