QJ.net has linked to a new video from EA’s upcoming Godfather title for the Wii. The video shows how the player goes about shaking down individuals to intimidate them – mostly by slamming their heads against anything in view. Cash registers, walls, you name it. The latter part of the video shows the pistol targeting system. Shoulders and legs are game, with the enemy reacting the way you would expect them to.
It looks like a load a fun! If the game has fully destructible environments, the game will have a load of replay value. Just as some people play GTA just to see how long they can keep up a 5 star wanted level, I can see myself popping in this title to bang someone’s head against in a toilet.
I have renewed faith in EA after seeing them make a great effort with Madden Wii. Can they deliver a mature game on the Wii? We shall see. So far, the graphics engine looks pretty smooth, and the interactivity via the Wii Remote should make for some fun sessions. Who knows, maybe the fight scenes will be second to Wii Boxing in terms of how much they make you sweat.
