Video Game | Action, Crime, Drama
Set in New York from 1945-1955, Players will join the Corleone family as "soldiers" and work their way up the ranks through loyalty, fear, and any number of illegal activities. The goal is to become Don of your own mafia family.
Before his death, Marlon Brando recorded a small amount of dialogue to reprise his character, Don Vito Corleone. He was very enthusiastic about this work, was fascinated with the technology involved, and approved of his character's representation in the game. Unfortunately, due to his poor health only one of his recordings made it into the game. The oxygen tank he needed to breathe was audible on the track. The only scene that actually uses Brando's voice was the scene in the hospital. When you approach Don Vito in his hospital bed, he gives a short speech about Sollozzo. Clips of Brando's voice taken from the film are used in some scenes. Doug Abrahams, who also voiced Clemenza and Woltz in the game, was cast specifically for his ability to mimic Brando, and also acted as a dialect coach.

Frances 'Frankie' Malone: Hi. Guard duty, huh?
The Player Trapani: Yeah. You?
Frances 'Frankie' Malone: I'm here to see Marty. Listen, um, thanks. There's nothing I hate more than playing the damsel in distress. But I appreciate what you did.
Frances 'Frankie' Malone: I'd better go in.
The Player Trapani: Hey.
Frances 'Frankie' Malone: Yeah?
The Player Trapani: I was thinking - maybe we should, ya know...
Frances 'Frankie' Malone: ...
When targeting Marty 'Monk' Malone, he is identified as a Capo (three stripes), despite him being acknowledged (by himself) as being an outsider - merely an associate. He states that he was never 'made', and therefore never held the rank of Soldier either.
