The Godfather: The Game

I've never really got on with or into computer games. I wonder if Electronic Arts' The Godfather could be the one that tips the balance for me when it ships in a fortnight.

It has been years in development and according to the Daily Telegraph, while it has been disowned by Coppola, it does feature new voice recordings by - and the licensed images of - James Caan, Robert Duvall and even Brando. I've also read somewhere else that it will feature the classic score of the original films.

Last year games worth £1.35 billion were sold in the UK, while cinemas only took in £840 million. Watch this space.
