Godfather, The box cover

Godfather, The screenshot
Fairly poor action game based on the "Mafia" movie series of the same name. Yet again another typical movie-licensed title - as seen so often from U.S. Gold. Features five scenes or levels loosely related to the film. A level consists of two parts: A side-scrolling multi-directional shooter, in which you slowly walk around the scene, shooting the "bad" guys with slooow bullets, while avoiding to shoot the "innocent" guys. If you survived till the end of that scene, you'll reach the second part, which is seen from the first-person perspective and will soon remind you of your Operation Wolf days. Overall, gameplay is very dull-- better say "not there" to be precise. The levels lack any variation and only differ from the background graphics. Some praise, though: the graphics are quite frankly beautiful. I can't remember having seen such nice graphics in any other action game of that time. But what use are they, if game design lacks everything and gameplay does not exist?
