"An excellent title for the Wii"
4 stars"

I purchased this game a few months ago, not expecting much, but it turned out to be thoroughly enjoyable. The premise is simple; bascily a GTA clone with the ‘Godfather’ style slapped on.

Many reviewers have said that this game's Wii-specific controls don't really add much to the gameplay, but I, personally have found the experience a lot grittier using the Wii-mote to carry out the game's various execution styles, or even just the standard hand-to-hand combat.

The driving controls don't really make much use of the Wii's motion sensitivity, but it doesn't matter too much as it just sticks to the tested and true thumbstick steering.

Also, like the versions released on the other consoles you have a good amount of customisability with your character, using the ‘Mobface’ feature, which functions like the ‘Create-a-Sim’ feature of the original ‘The Sims’ game, but gives far more options (I.e. Scars, nose size etc…).

My only true gripe with this game is the graphics, which are a direct port of the PS2's. I mean, everyone knows that the Wii is in no way graphicly focussed, but the developers should have at least used the graphics from the Xbox version. Although this isn't too bad, as it looks pretty decent.

Description

A classic story about family, respect, and loyalty, Mario Puzo's The Godfather and the Paramount Pictures film based on that novel serve as the game's inspiration. The Godfather Blackhand Edition puts you at the center of the action in one of history's most revered cinematic masterpieces, allowing you to choose your path as you rise from lowly outsider to envied and feared Don in a living world 1945-1955 New York.

The Godfather Blackhand Edition for Wii offers countless choices for solving the family's problems with brutal violence, skillful diplomacy, or a cunning mix of both. Use your powers of loyalty and fear to earn respect through interactions with police, businessmen, racket bosses, other mobsters, and more. The decisions you make have lasting consequences, just as they do in the legendary mob underworld of The Godfather books and films.

The Godfather film featured many of Hollywood's finest actors and several are contributing to the game's development. Actors lending their voices to add a dramatic and cinematic touch to the game include the late Marlon Brando as Don Vito Corleone, James Caan as Sonny Corleone, and Robert Duvall as consigliore Tom Hagen.

Features:
  • The World of The Godfather: Experience a decade of the mafia in a living world New York City from 1945-55 with enhancements to racket truck heists, extortions, targeting, living world gameplay, and much more.
  • Blackmail, Favors, Extortion….Keys to the Criminal Enterprise: Perform all new favors in to increase your rep with local businesses and the Family or extort the local shopkeepers to put more money in your pocket.

  • Fight for the Family: The Godfather Blackhand Edition on Wii features more contract hits with new family compounds to explore, control and destroy.
  • Control Freak: For improved, hyper-intuitive Blackhand Control use gestures with the Wii Remote and Nunchuk to really beat down your opposition, or point directly at the screen using the Wii Remote for pinpoint firearm accuracy.

  • Explosive Death: Plant car bombs on stationary vehicles and watch the impressive explosions light up the sky.

  • Control New York: Your bid to take control of the Corleone Family and make New York City your own will be challenged by the other four families from the fiction: Tattaglia, Cuneo, Barzini, and Stracci.
