The Godfather by Mario PuzoThe Godfather—the epic tale of crime and betrayal that became a global phenomenon.
Almost fifty years ago, a classic was born. A searing portrayal of the Mafia underworld, The Godfather introduced readers to the first family of American crime fiction, the Corleones, and their powerful legacy of tradition, blood, and honor. The seduction of power, the pitfalls of greed, and the allegiance to family—these are the themes that have resonated with millions of readers around the world and made The Godfather the definitive novel of the violent subculture that, steeped in intrigue and controversy, remains indelibly etched in our collective consciousness.
The Godfather II
The action takes place across three cities: New York , Miami , and Havana. The game is played from a third person perspective. It also contains some strategy elements, as the player's character battles rival families and take over businesses to ultimately rule over many cities. Robert Duvall reprises his role as consigliere Tom Hagen in both voice and likeness as he did in the first game. However, Al Pacino , who played Don Michael Corleone in the film did not provide his likeness or voice and the character of Michael was changed significantly in the game itself. Also, though several actors from the film have died, surviving actors G. Spradlin , Carmine Caridi and Danny Aiello do not feature although Spradlin and Aiello seem to have provided their likenesses.

SpiralStatic1 posted I still don't understand how you played hours of Godfather 2. That's like torture. The mafia doesn't shoot people willy nilly. You shoot people the cops get pissed the cops get pissed it costs more to bribe them or they refuse to be bribed. As was said in the godfather film by Sollozzo "blood is a big expense" "you could also wipe out an Entire Family Forever in this same vein" also unrealistic.

But he's the best kind of talker, because he's got interesting things to say. And so in this lengthy interview I conducted along with Bitmob's Omri Petitte, we let him loose. Jack Scalici: I oversee stuff like script doctoring, story progression, overall narrative of every game, dialogue — making sure the dialogue sounds like it's from real people, not some video game character, or even worse, comic book character. Overall, writing is a big focus of what we do. Music supervision and music licensing — making sure each game has an awesome licensed soundtrack if the narrative calls for it, which it did in this case.
Partially based on Puzo's novel The Godfather , the film is both sequel and prequel to The Godfather , presenting parallel dramas: one picks up the story of Michael Corleone Pacino , the new Don of the Corleone crime family , protecting the family business in the aftermath of an attempt on his life; the prequel covers the journey of his father, Vito Corleone De Niro , from his Sicilian childhood to the founding of his family enterprise in New York City. Following the success of the first film, Paramount Pictures began developing a follow up to the film, with much of the same cast and crew returning.
