Review In the game, a mob meeting gone awry leaves the player in an unexpected position of power. In Don's View, players will micro-manage operations in their territory using strategy gameplay mechanics. As the new Don of the New York Corleone outfit, the player strives to defend his turf and wrest control of businesses from his competitors in New York, Havana and Miami. Each new business results in bonuses like armored cars, brass knuckles and bulletproof vests. Eventually, cornered enemies will retreat into their stronghold, where it's possible to finish them off for good...To assist the new Don maintain control of his territory, the player can recruit various crewman, each with different specialties like safe-cracking, arson, engineer or medic. These phases of the game play like a typical action title, with missions to complete, weapons to collect and upgrades to obtain...The game features a full-featured multiplayer option. Demolition Mode requires players to use their demolition specialty to destroy key enemy assault points. Players seek out and crack safes throughout the map in Safe Cracker Mode. In Fire Starter Game Mode, players compete to set things on fire and race to blow up the other team's compound.

Review If The Godfather II had been a mediocre, mindless action flick, the game of the same name could at least be considered faithful to its source material. As it is, though, Coppola's Mafia-themed masterpiece has been reduced to an uninspired, repetitive open-world action game with out-of-context movie quotes and a handful of recognizable characters sprinkled throughout its forgettable story. To make matters worse, The Godfather II has clearly been released in an unfinished state and is riddled with performance issues and bugs like they've been fired from a Tommy gun...Questionable design choices aside, the problem with almost every aspect of The Godfather II is simply that it feels unfinished. Dated visuals, voiced lines of dialogue that seemingly play at random and often inappropriate times, dead bodies falling through scenery, a car hovering in the air about half a mile off the Cuban coast, being able to snipe enemies through walls and doors that haven't popped into view yet, guards who fail to recognize you as a threat when you walk into a federal building and crack a safe, cars and pedestrians that appear and disappear long before they leave your range of vision, getting stuck in an animation somewhere between a regular walk and a crouch after vaulting through a window--these are just some of the problems we encountered in the 13 hours or so that it took to play from start to finish. Even looking past these anomalies, all you're going to find is repetitive, unsatisfying gameplay in an illogical, inconsistent world. The Godfather II should have been an offer impossible to refuse, but like Michael's brother Fredo, this one will break your heart.
