"Just stick with the PS2 version"
4 stars"

Tricky tricky… okay let's just start and get the obvious out: its a great game. There's no denying that. Usually film-to-game adaptations stink, but certainly not with The Godfather. The story tells its own, so its not a lot to do with the movie as a whole – but it more or less fills in the gaps. The great thing I found while playing the Godfather is the variety in gameplay. Once you get the nasty controls to work for you, you will find that things actually get suprisingly involved. So there's no problem there. I'll tell you what the problem is though: graphics. The graphics and movements just arent acceptible for a next-gen console like the PS3. It is almost as if they have ported the game straight from the PS2 without any changes and simply stuck a “The Dons Edition” sticker on the front. And let's face is – after playing a game like Uncharted or Heavenly Sword or even MotorStorm on your PS3 – you're gonna feel somewhat annoyed when you stick that Godfather disc in.

So it breaks down like this: great game but poor graphics and animations ruin the experience. I cant think of one reason to buy the PS3 version over the PS2 version other than at least you know it's gonna work on your PS3 – or you've got a 40 gigger model that isnt backward compatible. Thats about it. The PS2 version is cheaper: just get that. Simple.

"Definatly not good enough 4 PS3"
2 stars"

Ok i dont own this game (thank god other wise id be kicking myself for spending $130 on a ps2 game) but i did hire it out and its soooo not worth it i played it for a good 5 or 6 hours and i was already very bored of the side missions and driving down the same street a million time becose the games not small its just empty and repetative and feels like ur just driving down someones coridor, but i dont want to be too mean this would have made a good PS2 title as the story lines interesting enough and you do get a little hooked, but other then that the graphic are below average and the game play is the same they have a very lame attempt to use the six axis controller in fights but it feels un natral and pain in the a** and the same can be said about the way ur weapons get put away all the time without you setting them to be altho the rest of the weapons system once your used to it is good. anyway all in all i will get this game i think as i like the ideas in it but the should have done soooo much more work to it but yeah im waiting until this is $30 odd dollars in the bargin bin at the warehouse

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 The Don's 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 The Don's Edition for PlayStation 3 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 Holly-wood'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.

  • 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.
  • The Mean Streets of NYC are Even Meaner: The Godfather The Don's Edition on PlayStation 3 features more contract hits and 4 new rival family compounds to explore, control, and destroy. Two new transportation hubs, the Shipyard and Railyard, allow you to grow your criminal empire in whole new directions.
  • Favors and Blackmail: "Someday, and that day may never come, I'll call upon you to do a service for me…." The way of favors is integral to the story line of The Godfather, perform all new ones for the Family or local businesses to gain greater reputation on the streets of NYC. You can now also chat up "the ladies" for "the skinny" on crooked cops; blackmail them for enhanced protection and inside information.
  • Give 'Em a Beat Down: Use your firearm as a smash-mouth melee weapon on the PS3. With the SIXAXIS controller, the Blackhand Control fighting power is in your hands; when you slam your controller, you slam your opponent.
