About The Godfather II

On the eve of the Cuban revolution, a major mob meeting in Havana takes a bloody turn. The Don of your family is killed, and you must take the reigns and lead your battered organization. Success breeds opportunity, so when Michael Corleone comes under investigation by a Senate Committee on Organized Crime, the Corleone Family calls upon you to reestablish its operation in New York and expand into a new territory—Miami. Build up your arsenal, build alliances, and make whatever deals you need to as you fight off attacks and strike back at your rivals. There’ll be a price on your head and a target on your back, but don’t take it personally. After all, it’s only business.

Summary

Disappointing yet addictive, The Godfather II blends strategy and violence with mixed results and technical inefficiency.

We like

  • Intimidating businessmen with a range of violent moves
  • The game's strategic element
  • Being the Don, ordering people around and smacking people about

We dislike

  • The lack of mission variety
  • The bland graphics, blocky animation and technical issues
  • The occasionally poor behavior of friendly and enemy A.I.
