The Godfather: Blackhand Edition review

The Corleones have one last favor to ask. Find out if this is an offer you can refuse

Blackhand Edition also features a bunch of new indoor environments to skulk around in, which is always a plus. Not only are there now more diverse floor plans for the dozens of businesses and rackets you'll need to raid, but the four Family Compounds - the heavily defended fortresses you'll need to bomb in order to wipe each rival mob off the map - have all been redesigned with unique layouts to keep you on your toes. They're also now filled with breakable stuff, ranging from throwable bottles to electrical transformers that can fry anyone you throw into them.

After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
