Full Version: Godfather 2: Thread 2

This thread is mostly for bones and I, anyone else is free to interject as long as it's related to the game.

So I had a Red Bull last night about 9PM and played Godfather 2 until about 2AM before nearly passing out on the couch. I managed to complete New York (which was more of a lengthy tutorial) and got started in Florida doing the first few missions from Hyman Rothjew. Overall, I'm really liking the game. I like having a crew that instantly appear anywhere I go. They're pretty much no problem and it's easy to assign them to their specified jobs, to take over businesses, etc. I like the ability to upgrade my crew and customize their clothes/weapons.

The Don's View saves this game completely. It would be a very long, tedious game without it. It makes for easier navigation and managing your assets. Like I said, I only just made it to Florida and there was already trouble going on in New York. Also, some of my Made Man hits for one of the Florida families are in New York. Looks like I'll be doing a lot of back and forthing. It seems like it's a pretty BIG game in that manner, lots going on.

Last night, I did just about everything in New York. I did about a 100 favors, just to build a fat bank roll to fund my guards and update my crew. I extorted all the businesses, took over the rings, killed all the made men, stared at some titties, bombed the compound, robbed the bank, did a few more favors and made sure there was a virtual army of guards at each business.

I did a few of the Florida missions and a few favors down there, few extortions, but that's really as far as I got. After playing through New York, the game is much more enjoyable and everything is starting to come together. I'm really liking it.

if any of your rackets get attacked, don't hesitate to send one of your made men over there if you can't make the trip personally... they certainly go a long ways in this game... one made guy can take on like 6 of their foot soldiers... i've actually used a couple of made men to take over rackets for me while i was busy with other things... just pay attention because, the enemy can just as easily send one their guys too... but, your guys can handle a fight quite well... they even take out enemies for you if your fighting alongside them!! this game is probably the only one i've played where your AI team members are actually useful...

if your planning on attacking a family with armor or extended weapon clips, it might serve you best to take down one of the rackets in the ring... especially the armor ones... it makes it a little easier...

here's a link to some cheats...

now, i am not suggesting cheating but, there's some useful information in there like where to find weapon upgrades and where to find specialized characters to recruit to your family...

have you pulled off some weapon executions yet? how about the black-hand, how fucking fun is that?

I found some of the Level 2 weapons, but I am sure the guides will help. I have no shame in cheating.

Weapon executions are the best. When I first started playing the game that's all I did, was run around, beat up pedestrians and then bust out a weapons execution. Nothing cooler than shoving a Tommy Gun in someone's mouth and mashing on the trigger. Black Hand is fun too. The garrote is pretty dirty.

well, i would hope that you avoid the "full health" "full ammo" and "$5,000 instantly" cheats as this game is easy enough to not worry about those... you'll find it to be quite easy once you near the end...

the shotgun executions are the best... and if i recall, the baseball bat one is wicked... i never managed to break someones arm with the blackhand but, i just saw on the cheats list that it is possible... damn, that makes me want to play this again just to see it... i hope to find this in a bargain bin sometime this year for like $10... i got i think $30 or $40 for it when i traded it in so, it was a no brainer at the time... but, i do kind of miss it...

Yeah, there is supposedly an achievement for doing all the execution styles. I'm looking forward to witnessing them all.

And the $5000 instantly sounds like a nice little pickup for super upgrading myself.

yea, work on those executions early and often because, once the enemies run out, there's no one left to execute... i had to constantly lose the battle at one of the rackets in order to replenish their soldiers so i could finish off my list of executions... it wasn't very fun at all... but, it was one of the last trophies i had to earn to get the platinum one so, that kept me with it... otherwise, i probably wouldn't of cared...

by the way, this is the easiest game i ever got a platinum trophy for... you shouldn't have any problems with the achievements...

Do I have to use every weapon, at each level for executions? That was the only achievement that concerned me. I read there is an execution list in the Don's view, but I haven't seen it.

keep looking around in don's view... they're there... and yes, you have to perform an execution with all weapons... and all weapons have two execution modes... one standing and one on their knees... if you noticed, when you shoot an enemy in the legs, they drop to their knees...
