EA are really playing with fire to make a game based on probally the greatest movie trilogy of all time. I'm really excited and nervous at the prospect of the game, but so far it seems really good.
"Featuring non-linear action-adventure gameplay, The Godfather will offer gamers countless choices for solving the family’s problems with brutal violence, skillful diplomacy, or a cunning mixture of both. From mob hits and bank heists to drive-bys and extortion, step deep inside the world of The Godfather where intimidation and negotiation are your tickets to the top. Players will use their powers of loyalty and fear to earn respect through interactions with characters in the world. Decisions made by the player in the game will have lasting consequences, just as it was in the mob underworld featured in The Godfather fiction."
I like the idea that apparently violence may be much rarer choice of action than say, diplomicy. And apparently you also have the objective of taking control of the entire New York Five Families. As well as this, all the main cast are being hired to do voices for the game, including the recently deceased Marlon Brando who did some voice samples of The Don before his death.
Here's a juicy trailer
This is now my number one most anticipated game of the year.
