[QUOTE=Edward M]I know everyone is wondering why i gave it such a low grade. I'm not saying the game is a disaster. But I am trying to use C as the average. When I looked at its competition (GTA3 Vice City San Andreas, Mafia, JAK 2 Jak 3, Simpsons Hit in Run, Driver etc..) I saw that this game is well below average because of its blandness. So it should get a below average grade. So a D+ from me may be worth a C+ from someone else because I'm trying not to do grade inflation.
Who cares about the graphics of a Wii game? If you care about graphics play a 360 or PS3. These arguments are old and quite frankly I'm sick of hearing them. I don't care if the Critic is making them or Shawn or anybody else. The Wii is, and never will be a machine about graphics. Stop complaining about a moot point.
Well I certainly care about graphics. Sure graphics aren't everything, but good graphics will always make a game better. I don't think Twilight Princess would be as good as it was without its fantastic graphics, neither would the dead or alive games. People under estimate the importance of graphics. Sure you can have an awesome game with bad graphics (Deus Ex for example) but good graphics will always add appeal to games. I find Tomb Raider Legends to be much more appealing on the 360 because it looks better so that definately helps it.
Well, I'm not trying to be an a-hole to you and nitpick your comments b/c I think you did a good job on your review, but most of those games you listed had alot worse graphics than the Godfather game.
The game was better than many Sandlot games, the graphics were OK, and the controls were awesome. The voice acting was good, and I liked the story. Overall, its above average b/c it's playable. It's not great b/c of the aforementioned flaws.
