Images of The Godfather 2

Images of The Godfather 2

EA releases the first images - quite awful, we have to say - of The Godfather 2, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 version. If we are to believe its developers' word, the game would now be more of an action-adventure effort than a GTA clone. So far so good.

really not liking the look of this. saw the screens yesterday over at IGN, and it all looks very much like a slightly (and i mean SLIGHTLY) upgraded version of godfather 1. everything looks very empty, like your running around film sets rather then a living breathing city. in terms of these open world crime games. i'll stick with GTA and saints row. and in terms of this era of open world crime game i think mafia 2 does this thing a whole lot better. plus it looks a damn sight nicer, which is a bonus

It does look quite sterile. I'm hoping it's at least worth a play through though.

It's still quite far from release, so I'm hoping for an improvement - in almost every area. I quite liked the first one though, it added the character in the Godfather story quite well.

Well as I said in the Batman thread before the error was corrected:

Well the fire and smoke in the first pic look incredible. And everything else looks shocking. Did they not notice before sending these pics to the press that all four characters in pic 1 are standing in EXACTLY the same stance?

Studio Caca made the introduction to Ridge Racer PSP, this is not even close ;)

This looks bad, i didn't play the first Godfather, hence i cannot comment on the gameplay side of things, but i agree they shouldn't have released mediocre shots when the competitors are faring better in their press kits.

hmm... to be honest, after seeing thumbnails, the first thought that came through my head was: Scarface!

Looks pretty horrible. The environments are even worse than those of SR2.

Bland/empty environments galore! :(

This is still the xbox/ps2 engine by the looks of it

Horrible ans embarrassing on EA's part

Sure, it doesn't look very pretty, but the first Godfather game was actually pretty darn good and this looks a whole lot better than the first one so I think people should at least try this before picking on it. As they say, good gameplay > pretty graphics. That's how it was with the Godfather 1 and it looks to be the same here.

About the game

    GriftGFX @Moonwalker: It's mostly speculation.. wouldn't read too much into any of that. (51 minutes ago)

    amerakindesi I'm thoroughly enjoying the fast and furious forza 2 game. it is actually much more than a demo (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker But again, why not show a trailer at E3? Show the fans what the team has been working on, show that it has made this delay worth it, i don't get it. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Plenty of speculation on NeoGAF that this is either coming to Wii U AND the new NX...thing, or only for the NX. They seem to think NX releases in 2016. Nothing surprises me in this industry. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Ian_Nottingham: Metroid is definitely something i can see coming too. I mean...Retro's last game was DKCTF, nothing after that. Or perhaps a new 3D Mario? (2 Hours ago)
  • Ian_Nottingham
    Ian_Nottingham @Moonwalker: Nintendo has so much riding on zelda,it's best to give it as much time as possible.Perhaps a new third person metroid? (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I do wonder what game is going to take Zelda's spot now. Xenoblade? Definitely not the same appeal as a Zelda game. Maybe they got a big game reveal planned for E3....meh. (2 Hours ago)
