Just as many people ignored the First God father blowing it off as a EA game or as the sheep like to call GTA clones God father 2 has improved on the genre's style and topped the previous game. God father blows GTA4 out of the water along with saints row 2 because wat those games lack in real mafia and gang conduct the god father brings in. Perhaps it deserves to be set on its on side from GTA as the highlights and actions arent based around cinematic beautified story telling and picking up virtual girlfriends. The godfather stays true to the real mafia dealings with full on gang wars and bullying business's into paying you protection money, you can go to war with rival factions and see actual retaliation in the streets as they seek blood.
I would recommend if your on the fence about the God father series an you highly enjoyed the Highlight of GTA series VICE CITY then rent out this game an see for yourself.
If your a Godfather fan and you havent got this game already WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR??!!! GET IT NAO!
