Little Italy, New York City, 1936. Johnny Trapani, the father of Aldo Trapani, is killed by the Barzini family. He was always loyal to the Corleone... he died for that loyalty. Now, 1945, Aldo is in trouble. His worried mother asks Don Vito Corleone to look after him. Don Corleone sends Luca Brasi to recruit Aldo and teach him the ways of the mafia. From then, Aldo is taken under the Corleone family's wing and works his way up in the family...
The once-powerful crime Family is based in central Manhattan, in Little Italy, and are troubled by increasingly daring raids by the Tattaglias based in Brooklyn (even though every family has influence in Little Italy). Little Italy has streets of moderately poor local shops run by well-established Families. Don Vito Corleone heads the Corleone family.
The Barzini family
The Barzini family hails from Midtown, the richest community in New York City, making them the richest and most powerful family in New York City. The Barzinis are headed by the main antagonist, Don Emilio Barzini, who rules with an iron fist. He ordered the murder of aldo's father, and is rumored to be in control of another New York Family.
The Tattaglia family
The Tattaglia family dominates Brooklyn, owning almost every business in Brooklyn. The Tattaglia family has a serious rivalry with the Corleone family because of their business expansion into Little Italy, the Corleone's turf. Don Philip Tattaglia heads the Tattaglia Family, and his son Bruno is next in line to become Don of the Tattaglia Family.
The Cuneo family
The Cuneo family hails from Hell's Kitchen. The Cuneo family isn't as rich as the other families, owning few businesses. Don Carmine Cuneo heads the Cuneo Family. They are ruthless killers, excellent marksmen, and always appear in large groups largely due to the environment of Hell's Kitchen, which is run down and filled with poor communities.
The Stracci family
The Stracci family is based in New Jersey. Don Victor Stracci heads the Stracci Family. During daytime the neighborhood looks quite peaceful, with fancy houses and well-groomed parks, but at night, it becomes much more dangerous. The Straccis are the most cruel and vicious family.
- Writing:Very good. There were very few noticeable typos in the objective description text, but they didn't do any harm because they were still understandable. - Presentation:Very good. The angle of the focus of cutscenes was perfect. The cutscenes were creative and lively with shootouts, explosions and the actors given appropriate animations.
The Introduction - Length:Decent, as it takes about 4 minutes to complete. The mission is the introduction to the series. It shows a bakery being exploded by the Don Barzini's men. Johnny has to beat them up and then he is killed in an ambush. Aldo sees the body, but Don Corleone tells him to take revenge when the time is right. - Difficulty:Easy.

He then escapes the to his safe house under a three star wanted level. - Difficulty:Hard. The training part is very easy. The time limit to go to the meeting place is also more than required to reach there. But the gunfights can be difficult because of the huge number of enemies with good accuracies.

Some Capo follows them. They attack Aldo once they are on the bridge. Aldo takes all of them down and drives the ambulance to the hospital. There he meets with some other stranger. - Difficulty:Hard.

The Enforcer - Length: Too Short, as it takes less than a minute. The mission shows Aldo being appointed as the Enforcer by Clemenza. - Difficulty:Very easy. The mission only includes cutscenes. - Variety:Could be better. Characters include Clemenza and Aldo.
Overall, the missions are good. The length of some missions can be improved by adding some more dialogues/cutscenes. The difficulty of the first four missions is very easy and can be improved by increasing the number of enemies or giving them some weapons. But the difficulty is understandable because the missions are just the first of the series. Nevertheless, the author did a good job in the designing of the missions and should keep up with it.

Overall, the missions are good. I enjoyed most of them, even though some of them have little or no action involved. A very good copy from the original "The Godfather" game. Some of the missions have high difficulty, it can be enjoyable for some players but can stressed some average player (Like in the mission "Fireworks"). The author have done a good job in designing in this mission and should keep up the good work
**This mission pack, or parts of it, are made with DYOM v6.1** **For the best experience, chapter one and two should be played with DYOM v6.1**
Before I made this, I performed a search. I saw that 2 other also made a mission pack and/or storyline about The Godfather. One of them is banned, and one of them made it, but not really like The Godfather. So, please don't blame me for copying and stuff, because I'm going to make it the same as The Godfather game.
Also, forgive me for the skins in used. Those were the best I could use.
I just found out that 1 missions is bugged. I 'll fix it ASAP.Fixed.
- Nice designing, the place looks pretty cool for the scene. - The skin for Don Corleone isn't suit at all. He looks young. But I know you'll change the skin. - Why don't you use weapons for the alleyway scene? It's better in my opinion. But, it's your choice.
