The first one was great. The extorting the shooting and the crew. Only 2 things I hoped would improve with the sequel. First which thankfully Ive seen in the preveiws, have an actual crew not just a single bodyguard. But the most important improvement to make would be the enemy. The fighting was good and all but they never fought back. They do send hit squads and bomb your businesses but you would instantly be raspawned and destruction of businesses only lost you money as they would repair in a week. What I would really like to see the the other familys actually extorting your businesses. In the 1st if you took over a section you have no more worries their. Other families should be sending out men to your territory to take over your businesses. Even more amazing than that would be if they fought with each other. But I think that would put it over the top. Your family vs. the others and the battle for the cities doesnt end until genocide of that family is complete. Im dreaming about it already.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Mr.Awesome758 Terrible game. But you should still try it.
I played the first Godfather game and loved it. I thought it was a different approach to open world games that was very fun just because of the fact that you can take over stores. The Godfather 2 was a huge disappointment. The graphics looks like just like the fist Godfather game, like they didn't even bother to improve on them. The games pretty damn short (unless you do EVERYTHING then it'll be over 25 hours). I know it's the video game version but still, it doesn't follow the Godfather 2 storyline that well. HOWEVER, if you were to ask me how much I enjoyed playing it I would give it high praise. I don't know what it is but I really enjoyed the game. It's kind of like playing Sonic Unleashed or Infinite Undiscovery, you know that a lot of aspects of the game are pretty much garbage but you really have fun playing it. And that's what video games are, entertainment, as long as you have fun that's all that really matters. I snagged it for $** and enjoyed myself, you should to.

There's NO way they could make a decent sequel to part one. This is more of a GTA game now or a scarface type game. I've seen the previews and screenshots, and i hate to say it this game is flat going to suck. The original one was based on the movie. At no point in the movies was it based in miami or cuba. Considering the family was italian they wasted there time money and efforts making this one. As with most sequels to a GREAT game they always suck. Just like the rumors of scarface 2 coming out for the movies. How ironic when she never had a child with tony yet he's tony's son in the preview go figure. Why ruin something good with garbage? This game will be a flop unless they make a part 3 to actually pick up where part 1 left off. I see this being a waste of money. Just like deus ex the 1st one was truly an awesome game part 2 wasa dud. Now there coming out with part 3 which is a take off from the original. Don't waste your money on this unless you like playing GTA style games over and over and over!
Rated 10 out of 10 by MaqDiesel Great Title!!
This game is extravagant. From the free-roam to conquering NY, Miami, and Cuba. The game doesn't pick up after the movie in any sort, so don't expect that. It does have a few names from the movies though. The graphics aren't the strongest, but with it being made back in '08 and being released in early '09, they are strong enough. You can build up your mob, take businesses, extort businesses and have all out mob wars. Bribing cops, and city officials helps out problems with the cops being on your be--hind! I've lent this game too a few friends and they absolutely love it. With customization of your mob from color suits, shirts, pants, shoes and your face to what you will look like, this game has it all. There is a multiplayer and some DLC content for it for game enhancement. THIS GAME I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! For anyone who likes GTA, The Saboteur style free world gameplay, mixed with mafia storys and action. This game is so good, it has me wanting to get the first one, at which I only bought Godfather 2 and skipped the first.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Hero Of Time surprised
I guess i might have been one of the few who actually loved the first game, never watched the movies, but playing these games you don't have to have previously watched them. The game was great, yes it does get tedious at times because you have to repeat stuff, but i also thought that that was fun. Take over a racket and just shortly after within a few minutes that racket is being attacked and taken back from you. From the same family that you took it from. Being able to have your own men follow you was great, just make sure that at least one of the men you have with you at all times is a medic. The only complaint is not with the game. I pre-ordered this game from gamestop, it came with the unlock-able character, i followed the instructions on the card to unlock him but i just can't figure it out. And i guess numerous people have gone into the same gamestop where i got mine complaining about not being able to do it. Just definitely try this game out.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Rosato One of The Best
I bought this two days ago thinking it be a good game that I could enjoy. It turns out that this is one the the best games i have ever played. The game starts out in cuba (a weak movie tie in) where your don is shot and killed. You take control hire soldiers to join your family, each on with different specialities, you can completely customize their weapons, clothing, and you can take them online. You can go by yourself to take 'rackets' where you have to take control of it, giving you more of a daily profit. You can go and do it yourself, take up to three members of your loyal family with you or send your family to do it while you do something else. It's a perfect blend of action, third person shooter and strategy. Other families may attack you, you have to manage your money too, hiring guards or send your soldiers to defend your turf. My only complaint is that i completed this game now with about 12 hours of gameplay. I wish it was longer but now i go online and fight other people with the godfathers multiple online modes which are all very fun.
Rated 8 out of 10 by JBezzers Great game!
This game was everything I expected, even more! I'll be the first to admit that the length of the game is not so great though. But, It's awesome how there are over 80 different execution styles you can perform on enemies. The fact that you can heist a bank anytime you want and crack open an companies safe at anytime is great. But, the fact that you have to wait some time for that bank to re-open sucks. The police in this game can get really annoying, but if there were no police, then there would be absolutely no challenge at all. Your team mates can get in the way a lot when you're trying to perform a certain execution, but if you didn't have any crew members at all, the game would be impossible. Also, another cool feature is that you can pick up almost any items you see laying around on the ground; like pool cues, 2x4's, night sticks, tire irons, and bats. Overall, I'd say this game is pretty awesome, although I guarantee there will be times when you feel very frustrated, like when your fronts or rackets are being bombed by your rival families.
Rated 6 out of 10 by Dumpster Baby Just OK - Nothing Special but better than the first
Godfather 2 is just OK. If you loved or enjoyed the first one, then I highly reccommend this game as it's slightly better then the first one. Positives: The new addition of "Don's View" was very nice and made mapping your business plan much easier; the guns are decent and executions are very fun; it's nice to be able to recruit peple into your family and the family tree was a nice change of pace, especially since if you find another person much better then one already in your family, you can mark him for death and execute them. Negatives: Overall it's pretty easy and short; You don't really do anything other then take over rival businesses and once complete kill everyone and blow up their compounds; game gets to be repetitive. It's like GTA but you can have a crew of people working for you and there isn't as many freelance things to do and the game does not follow the godfather 2 movie story. Yes the chicks in the clubs are topless but people they are cartoon boobs. I reccommend renting this guy before purchasing it or you may end up being dissapointed.
Rated 8 out of 10 by gamer1253i Its GTA with a Mediocre Godfather skin on it....
I went into playing this game optimistically. The first thing that caught my eye was the graphics. They were just ok. The explosions were pretty cool but overall just average. The story is loosely based on the movie which alot of people are mad about. One big new addition to the game is the dons view. This shows an overall map of the city and which business u control or u need to take over. This addition is overall easy to use and intuitive. The gameplay is an average 3rd person shooter with a decent cover system. This is a free roaming game so u can do missions as you please. The online, isn't very good. Its just average and not good at all. Overall, this game just kinda left me wanting more. They could have had a really cool game out of this but poor design choices and just ok story line make it just off the mark. I would recommend renting the game to see if u like it but in no means in should u buy it.
