EA has announced that the second installment of the popular crime/action game will be released in the US on February 24, 2009. I have waited for the second game to come out since the first time I ever played The Godfather on PS2. There was just something fun about receiving orders and carrying out “jobs” for Don Corleone. The Godfather II seeks to make players "act like a mobster, think like a don."
With Michael Corleone under investigation by a Senate Committee on Organized Crime, you must reestablish the dominance of the Corleone family. It is up to you to continue the family operations in New York City while expanding the business to Miami. Hit the streets to demand respect, extort money, recruit goons, and build your own family. I had hoped that this game would follow the story of a young Vito Corleone from poor immigrant to powerful Don, but to no avail. I thought EA hit a homerun with the first Godfather and I surely will be pulling the puppet strings in this game. Here are a few screenshots below. (Thanks to GameStop for the story.)
