Editorial: Need Your GTA 360 Fix? Play Some Godfather

Most of you probably can’t wait until Grand Theft Auto IV releases for the Xbox 360. Right now, the 360 really has no games that will compare to it other than the Godfather, which was released in 2006. Fortunately you can also pick up The Godfather at most used game stores for around $25. We’re not talking about the greatest game ever, but it’s certainly a quick fix to hold you over. If you happened to miss the action back in 2006, it’s never too late to go back and play a good game.

What good you’ll get out of The Godfather::

  • An awesome story that really sticks with the plot of the film. The Godfather definitely makes you feel like you are part of the story. If you loved the films, you’ll enjoy the game.
  • A fairly expansive city with no load times. There are plenty of missions to keep you busy for a very long time. Finishing this game isn’t something you are going to be able to do in a couple days like some games.
  • Great looking characters with good voice acting.
  • As much extortion, bribing, wacking, car jacking and shooting as you could possibly ever want.

    The Bad:

  • The graphics aren’t what I’d call “next-generation worthy”.
  • If you have played previous versions of the game, you’ll notice very little has changed. Other than downloadable content and achievements (for you achievement grubbers out there), the 360 version doesn’t offer much more than the original Xbox version.
  • All in all, The Godfather is a good game that you really shouldn’t miss if that’s your style of gaming. It’s certainly not as good as the Grand Theft Auto series, but worth playing if you just feel the need to cause chaos or wack some people. The Godfather is probably the greatest film series of all-time just behind Star Wars, but the game was just simply good. I’d love to see EA take another crack at the series in the near future.
