Images of The Godfather on Xbox 360

Electronic Arts released these images of The Godfather on Xbox 360. Let's just forget the target renders of last year and celebrate what must be the first game of the new interns team at EA.

Wow, this looks totally average, basically Hi-res textures and thats it, I know they adding a few more extras to this version, but still....

I'm actually shocked. I've seen the added feature list and they've added quite a bit that is of substance but the screens represent next to no progress over the Xbox version.

Sure there are a lot of assets in this game but it looks like they replaced barely any!

I don't see a comparison vid ala Battlefield coming out... :|

EA is an equal opportunities employer.

Apparently that includes people with no education or eyesight aswell.

All this time between the current gen release and next-gen development I thought they were actually going to try and get to those target renders, looks like they did nothing for the graphics this past half of a year. Pathetic and sad.

They're simply showing us that the original Xbox title is backwards-compatible for Xbox 360.

...right?

Mafia on my 9700 Pro looks better than this...
Commented on 2006-07-27 16:35:40
They look better then they did.

Boulet Time huh, Ok. Let me elaborate then. When you look at a game like Saint's Row or Just Cause, made by Devs with far less money and influence than EA, there is no excuse for this game to look subpar. Especially given the IP it's based on. The Godfather is an institution in film making, and should be treated as such. Hell, King Kong got more respect in game form than it ever did as the hokey movie in the theaters. even Riddick was treated with more respect, and almost everyone agrees that the movie was trash. So F@%K EA. Thank you.

Game looks no diffrent to me still same flat ugly looking textures as before XP
Commented on 2006-07-27 16:51:16
It was ugly on the previous consoles but they have actually managed to make it look a lot uglier on the 360. Well Done!

Exactly what I was thinking to!
Commented on 2006-07-27 16:58:44
why did they port mafia to the 360? oh, wait... aargh!
this still looks like "gen-before-last". pathetic :(

This game really does look bad. I had a look at some of the videos on IGN and that confirmed my thoughts on this.

PS I don't know how to do hyperlinks

EDIT: I see it does the hyperlinks for you lol. You learn something new everyday
Commented on 2006-07-27 16:59:58
I think we left behind the SUPER BLACK window tinting on the PS didnt we?
Commented on 2006-07-27 17:00:11
Clearly the Xbox version. No graphic artists could produce graphics this lame for the 360 and call it next gen. Oh well, pretty soon we won't have to worry about the last generation interferring with next gen game development.
Commented on 2006-07-27 17:13:55
i hope that this is a joke... looks so bad
Commented on 2006-07-27 17:14:47
These images made me laugh, especially the second pic with the rat looking guy in the white shirt. lol.

Gimme my next gen Burnout!
Commented on 2006-07-27 17:44:27
Those screens are so goddam ugly, that I'm unable to think of anything witty to say.
Commented on 2006-07-27 17:46:44
The game don't have good graphs at all but believe me it has the best destruction,fire and distorsion effects ever seen in a videogame.Go to ign download all the videos and you will be amazed!!!
Commented on 2006-07-27 18:16:32
How can they do this to such a popular movie? And what's worse, the old target renders look great, and completely achievable on 360.
Commented on 2006-07-27 18:22:54
Look at the clothesline in pic 2 . . . lol, frightening.
Commented on 2006-07-27 18:35:45
I am very dissappointed!

Ah, in the first sentence in my last post, I should have said "horrible" instead of "bad" as bad does have two meanings now

Rat boy in picture 2 lol. And yeah the clothesline really in frighening. Will EA stop letting there kids into the graphic department, what I see here is "look daddy, do you like my picture", great son, I'll put it into the next-gen game so everyone can see your work, I'm sure that's how it works down there.

  • Tiz
    Tiz Gears 4 is a refinement of the Gears 3 formula, which is great if you loved Gears 3. @alimokrane: I'm partial to the Embar & Overkill. (21 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @Phaethon360: I agree on the enemy variety, definataly but I simply love the little tricks and bits they added here and there. Best weapon has to be the DropShot. Ball of fun! (23 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz But with regards to variety, do you mean enemy variety? Because I agree. That is spot on. Gears 3 had so many different Locust & Lambent classes which kept Horde rounds fresh, Gears 4 does not. (43 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz PhaeKO outta nowhere. Rod said he wanted to do it right before doing it different and 343 were the blueprint for this which is why a lot of the Gears community still remains intact. (45 minutes ago)
  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 That and the variety just isn't there. So many different enemy and weapon types in Gears 2, which was the high point of the series for me. Gears 3 wasn't bad but it was on the downswing for me. (50 minutes ago)
  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 I really dislike Gears 4. Horde 3.0 was a disappointment, and the mechanics haven't changed much since Gears 1. After playing the remake so soon it just felt like more of the same. (51 minutes ago)
