DescriptionThe Wii and PS3 reworkings of the original The Godfather: The Game, respectively Blackhand Edition and The Don's Edition, were developed alongside each other and improve upon the original game.
It has a reworked crew system, where the members will accompany the player even after loading a game (that had another crew hired). During the missions, a 4-man hit squad can be called in, based on a gauge that needs to be recharged.
Next to the role of Enforcer in the original game, these versions offer an additional path as Operator, relying mainly on blackmailing FBI, cops or families, presented as a mini-game. While the Enforces uses brute force to ultimately destroy the other families, the Operator has to collect dirt on them. This can be used while talking to the police chiefs of the Five Boroughs to raise the bribe meter to the maximum, eventually allowing the player to take control of the police in the area, fighting along with your family members. Policemen can also arrest other characters. Special abilities for the Operator include enhanced and regenerating health, reduced price on bribing the FBI and police, enhanced crew damage and health, calling in the hit squad twice as often, and instant stealth kills through planting car bombs.
Next to the 20 regular missions, these editions include 10 new ones including a new rival family, rooftop battles, new favors, and different forms of blackmail and bribery.
Motion-based controls are supported through SIXAXIS (PS3) and more extensively with the Nunchuk and Wiimote (Wii) during battle and for execution moves such as choke, head butts, throws, swinging bats, shoves and throwing molotov cocktails.
The PS3 edition includes 2 locales not include in the other releases: a freighter and a train yard with additional missions.
