Set in post-WWII New York City, The Godfather: The Game follows the player-created character's rise through a crime syndicate based on the book and film franchises. Combining events from the movie with side-story missions, the player must earn respect by completing missions in territories controlled by New York's five crime families.

Largely open-ended, the game's story is driven by a series of missions where the player can use violence, intimidation, or diplomacy to affect the outcome and influence future events and other character's reactions. A third-person action game, The Godfather: The Game features a punching mechanism to brutally assert yourself, a car theft and driving engine, and a shooting system which allows for locational damage.

The game features a persistent offline world populated with locations from the franchise and characters who are often voiced by the actors who portrayed them onscreen.

While Marlon Brando did contribute his voice to the game prior to his death, his ill health affected his speech and unfortunately, his lines were not used.

DLC Controversy

Soon after the release of the Xbox 360 version, additional content such as weapons and even extra money was made available at the Xbox Live Marketplace for a small price. Discussion arose whether this content should have been available in the game in the first place, or if EA wanted to make a quick buck by offering these in exchange for micro-payments. The disturbing part was that EA removed the "free money" cheat code from the game, to make the items more attractive in exchange for real money.

Some of the in-game weapons are very expensive, but the Level 4 Tommy Gun – Spectre Minigun can be bought on Marketplace for 100 MS points ($1.25). Then, to actually use it in the game, you need $750,000 in-game currency. If you do not have that amount, EA offers free money for 150 MS points ($1.50) for the in-game amount of $250,000.
