Electronic Arts' The Godfather II (360, PS3, PC) is not a "movie game." While there are moments where the player's path will cross with events adapted from Francis Ford Coppola's sequel, the gameplay unfolds in a non-linear fashion, all within a 1960s, post-Godfather timeline.
Though the standard GTA elements are firmly in place, The Godfather II's real hook is its mob warfare strategy component, dubbed the "Don's View." An EA rep mentioned that the team spent time building a basic strategy game from the ground up. The result is a Risk-like meta-game that may help keep The Godfather II from being labeled as "just another GTA clone."
