Via CVG: The first details of EA's Godfather II have emerged, in the latest issue of Xbox World 360 magazine which hits news stands today.
I never played the first, but given the quality crop of titles coming out of EA at the moment (Bad Company, Burnout, Spore, Dragon Age, Mirrors Edge and Dead Space), I'm willing to give this a look. The integration of RTS and RPG into a sandbox is very intriguing.
i really enjoyed the first on ps2, it was cool how they had you work to get cool guns, and you could raid the warehouses to take over a territory
The first one was really good.
I hope they make up the story beacause the Godfather 2 movie sucked donkey balls. But it was still better than Godfather 3, which is vomit indusing...
i finished the first one on the Xbox, then also on the Xbox360 and finally on the PSP :) and i found it better than Mafia, so i will definitely grab the second one too.
@Superfragilistic The first title was a joke, with broken controls and abysmal graphics. Like you said though, there's plenty of quality games coming from EA at the moment, so I won't let my awful experience with the first game completely write this off.
Why do crappy games get sequels.
I rather enjoyed the first game, and apparently lots of other people did, too.
There making a sequel because the first one sold well. They want our money!
But it didn't do the Godfather any justice.
on the 360 and quite enjoyed it. Being a fan of the Godfather probably didn't hurt but I think the game did a fantastic job of filling in the gaps of the movie. As an example, one of the missions is you have to race across town to put the gun in the bathroom stall because Micheal's meeting location was changed. Another was dealing with you and the horse head. Great game, looking forward to the second.
yeah i hope for the second one they don't try to tread on the movie's story too much, keep it like the first where you are at arms distance and doing your own thing
this sounds really cool, i hope we will be able to go to all three cities, and i can see some awesome online play coming out of this
Lets hope the 2nd is better,the 1st was fun for 3-4 days.
“We found the hierarchical culture of organized crime intriguing. Running an organized crime family in a world defined by family loyalty is something that we felt could introduce a new strategic element to the genre,” he added. “That is what the Don’s View is all about -- laying out a strategy to pick off the competition one by one. The Don’s View is so unique, it could fundamentally change the rules of open-world games by blending action and strategy to create something entirely new." -Hunter Smith, executive producer of Godfather II. Running a mob family? Count me in!
