    LOL for me I'm getting annoyed with the character models on all the lead movie roles, they look spectacular but everyone else looks like playdough in comparison.

    When I finally got to the part with Al Pacino he doesnt even look or sound like him! Obviously EA spent the entire budget on the voices of Brando, Duvalle and James Cann and couldn't afford Pacino or much of level design.

    Normally I don't care about game reviews but if IGN and Gamespot don't pan this game I'm gonna be pissed.

    If you check around for Mafia, you may find it bundled with Hitman. At least it's that way in our area now. But, I know nothing about Hitman.

    Hmmm, I read that EA spent $820 Million dollars on The Godfather. Seems to be a BIG waste of money imo... :rolleyes: :bleh:

    You sure it said "million" ? 820 dollars sounds right to me.

    I read about this game in the freakin newspapers and it was even on the news a few times how much effort EA was putting into it to recapture the essence of the film. Most importantly they mentioned how it would boost EA's stocks and make the investors happy.

    I could be wrong but I think this is the first EA game ever that was rushed not for the fans but for the investors. Maybe releasing it in March would boost their Q1 results?
