Time to end your career as a petty thief and engage in serious business. The most renowned Mafia family of the United States has just accepted you into its ranks and will let you take part in much more dangerous, but also more profitable jobs. If you prove yourself, you will soon advance in the criminal hierarchy and gain the respect you deserve. Play your cards right and who knows, maybe you can even become a Don?

The Godfather is an action game based on the famous novel by Mario Puzo and the 1972 movie, directed by Francis Ford Coppola. As the lowest-ranking solider of the Don Corleone family, you will be performing special tasks commissioned by your superiors and slowly make your way to the top. Shoot-outs, heists, pursuits – you may have seen it all in Grand Theft Auto and Mafia: The City of the Lost Heaven, but never before has the story been so elite in character.

The story takes place in New York at the turn of 40s and 50s of the 20th century. Thanks to the non-linear character of the gameplay, you will be able to perform a number of movie related missions, in any order. All main characters have their visual counterparts in the Coppola's movie. To better reflect the specific atmosphere of the production, the developers of The Godfather convinced many actors starring in the movie (Marlon Brando, James Caan, Rober Duvall, among others) to take part in the character voice over.

The player can gain respect among his superiors in three ways: brutal methods, diplomacy, or a unique combination of the two. The decisions you make will have a significant impact on your attempt to take over New York. Moreover, it is necessary to remember that you have some contenders for the criminal throne of the city: the families Tattagalia, Cuneo, Sollozzo, Brazini, and Stracci.

The game offers modern 3D graphics and a movie inspired soundtrack. The script was written by Mark Winegarden, the author of Godfather Returns.
