Control old New York and become the don in EA’s The Godfather: Black Hand Edition on the Wii, available from Cool-Shop for only £21.99!
Beaten into a price-comparison, Cool-Shop’s offer emerged, blood and bruised, as the cheapest around, with a six-pound saving! The Black Hand Edition of EA’s Godfather series proved to be the most popular, with IGN awarding it a solid 8.0.
The Godfather game is like a half-baked GTA, laced with shallow strategy features. As an up-and-coming gangster in 1940s New York whose father’s been murdered, you’re assimilated into the Corleone family, and must set about gathering territory, defeating rivals and recruiting further allies to the cause. Famous characters from the film feature, such as the Godfather himself, Luca Brasi and McCluskey, although they’re voiced by imitators instead of the actors themselves.
The Black Hand Edition of The Godfather was tailored for the Wii’s motion-controls. You aim firearms with the Remote, swing baseball bats and hurl Molotov Cocktails. The cornerstone of the Godfather gameplay is the interrogation mechanic, which is enhanced with the inclusion of motion-control. Perfect for wannabe GBH-offenders.
