The Godfather: Blackhand Edition

 

The Godfather games have never been perceived as anything more than another set of just-below-average games-after-movies. Other than a few exceptions, movie games have never impressed on consoles. EA went back to scratch to try to legitimize the...

If you're a fan of the Godfather, The Godfather: Blackhand Edition on the Wii is a must-have for your collection. It boasts plenty of game-time, because even when you finish there are always more collectables to go find? in the middle of driving games...

A game worthy of its epic inspiration

The Godfather: Blackhand Edition

 

This is a tough neighborhood; you could use some protection.

Great open-world, mission-based gameplay ; Wii controls not only work but improve the experience ; Concise mission arc is backed by fathomless side-quests ; Top-notch production values

Game world is a bit simplistic ; Not much music and no Al Pacino ; Unskippable Brando clip before the title screen

whats better, this or scarface?

The Godfather: Blackhand Edition (Wii) Review

 

The Godfather is one of the greatest movies of all time. Students reference it in film school, musicians listen to its soundtrack for inspiration, and directors hope to make a legacy like it. When Electronic Arts announced that it will be making a game...

The Godfather: Blackhand Edition

 

When Electronic Arts first released The Godfather on the Xbox and PlayStation 2 there was a lot of doubt whether they could pull off such an ambitious idea. A lot of people have fond memories of Francis Ford Coppola's classic 1972 feature film and the...

When The Godfather first appeared on the PlayStation 2 and Xbox it surprised everybody with its high quality. But now that we've seen the game on a dozen other systems it's hard to warrant picking up the Blackhand Edition, unless you're one of the few...

The Godfather: Blackhand Review

 

This time, Wii-ifying a game makes it an even better experience.

The ESRB has rated this game M and they aren't kidding - like the movies, it's definitely not for the kids. If you can get over the AI and the pop-in of the vehicles (which really aren't game breakers) you will have an enjoyable time with this game....

The Godfather: Blackhand Edition

 

By now, The Godfather has been passed around to so many consoles that I'm afraid it might have STDs. The game has had so many staggered releases that it's amazing there are people left who haven't played it yet. Apparently EA intends to squeeze every...

The Conclusion: The Godfather: Blackhand Edition is the same as the other console versions, only that much more fun. Using the Wii controller for your combat, with both melee and weapons, adds a whole new layer to the game that only increases the...

The Godfather: Blackhand Edition

 

When EA first threw us "the pitch," as we'll call it, that they were planning to turn one of the most beloved films in cinematic history, The Godfather, into a video game, many were quick to assume the worst. After all, this came from a company whose...

Interesting motion controls and a more refined experience make Blackhand Edition the best way to play The Godfather.

Product Specifications

The authentic The Godfather experience reaches a new level on Nintendo Wii with much more content than the current version of the game, including new hits, compounds, families, mini-games, and more. Wield the power of the BlackHand like never before with new motion-sensing controls, including special Wii gesture-based maneuvers for extra damage. The non-linear action-adventure gameplay features original and film-based missions, including all-new missions. The new RPG system lets you choose your path as an Enforcer for better fighting skills or an Operator with a gift for extorting and influencing others. Use your powers of loyalty and fear to earn respect. How you go about gaining power-through negotiation, intimidation, or a strategic mix of both - affects how others deal with you. Mafia warfare gets more intense on next gen with new car bombs, hard-hitting Corleone strike teams, and more.
