This game takes The Godfather to a new level. The graphics are in a sense better than the original not to mention different "weather conditions". This game is packed with many different extras including the "hit squad" that when charged and not on a mission can be activated calling four Corleone thugs to aide you in whatever it may be that you need them for (ie taking down rackets, warehouses, compounds). You can also hire a hitman to follow you around that has the same rank as you or less. Newer missions have been added to this game that give more of a back-story to the movie and also more footage from the movie (also, there are missions called favors which mainly boost respect). A couple new characters and vehicles come to light but not so much to go nuts over. Skill upgrades have been split into two categories, one known as Enforcer and the other called Operator. one boosts your more physical qualities while the other boosts you morale. The new SIXAXIS Wireless controller comes into play when handling some of the other family goons. Whether it's bashing someones face onto a counter, pushing them off a rooftop, or breaking their neck, it puts you into the game and gives you a feel like you are pulling off the moves (in a true gamers perspective anyways). A lot of the buildings have been redone so that when you go through some of the rackets it won't be like the original (you know the walk-in and "I know the layout of this place"). They have also changed the compounds up too. Overall, if you've played the original for PS2, you have got to get this. If you have never played The Godfather game, don't worry about the original because this is the one to have. I LOVE THIS GAME!
