"Great game but very powerhungry"

First the cons:

  • If you have a pc that just meets the requirements, you will definitely need to upgrade before you can play this game. You will need to have either a powerful sound card, a newer quad core or triple core CPU. The GPU definitely needs to be newer than 8600GT.
  • Some of the gameplay features can only be unlocked by playing online with horrible lag.
  • produced by EA games so you can forget about customer support.

Pros:

  • Awesome gameplay. I never get tired of execution styles. :-)
  • The dons view is a great feature where you can, for e.g, send the more capable members of your crew to attack one target while you go and single handedly wipe out another (one of the perks of being a don).
  • There is usually more than 1 way to accomplish any object, hit or takeover. Depending on my mood I sometimes go with the quick and silent takedown (took over a business without killing a single person) or a brute force “killem all” style.
  • Great graphics and sound – if you have the system to support it.

I have an AMD 3700+, 2GB RAM, 2 × 8600gt 512MB SLI and SB Audigy 2. All with latest firmware and drivers. Have to run it at 1024X768 with graphics mode set to low. My friend has a AMD Phenom, 4GB RAM, 2 × 9800GT SLI and onboard Azalia soundcard. Runs fine at high resolutions with graphics mode set to high.

NOTE: From EA rep in GF2 forum: “Godfather 2 is designed to work off a single core, under 32-bit architecture. Multiple cores will not, unfortunately, increase the effective speed of your processor.” So your processor needs to be minimum 2.8Ghz for each core.

Overall: Excellent game, very fun and immersive but with very poor support from EA.

Description

After being promoted by Michael Corleone to Don of New York, players expand to new cities, as they build up their families through extorting businesses, monopolizing illegal crime rings and defeating new families in an effort to become the most powerful mob family in America. To help players manage their empire, The Godfather II introduces “The Don’s View” - an innovative strategy meta-game that allows players to oversee the entire world as they grow the family business. Using the Don’s View, players will be able to build, defend and expand their crime rings, while keeping an eye on the movements and plans of the rival families. Players will also learn to master the business of organized crime by building a family of Made Men, hiring crew, handing out orders, and promoting their best men up the ranks.

Set in a stunning open-world environment, The Godfather II expands on the popular gameplay mechanics of the first game and doubles down on the series’ signature BlackHand control scheme, which now features even more visceral hand-to-hand brutality at your fingertips, introducing a new combo system, pressure tactics and executions. In The Godfather II, players will fight alongside their hand-picked crew, who have their own skills and expertise. Each family member specializes in a specific field such as demolitions, arson, engineering, first-aid and more. As The Don you control the family, sending some of your men on missions while heading off into action with others. The combination of strategic organized crime gameplay and brutal BlackHand action sets The Godfather II apart from other open-world games.
