The Godfather: Five Familes is another hybrid strategy game, one that takes great inspiration from games like The Stratagems and other Kabam games like Global Warfare. You’ll fill the role of an up-and-coming mob boss (choosing either a male or female character) tasked with revitalizing a family who’s in a bit of a slump. As a strategy adventure, there’s ample depth, but Five Families also does a bang-up job of being accessible to all types of gamers.
Gameplay is fairly deep, but keeping track of your emerging empire is very straightforward. Your consigliere (right-hand man) will keep you up to speed on every move you need to make as part of one of the Five Families (chosen at the beginning of the game), though you can also tackle missions in whatever order you choose. At the outset, you’ll spend the bulk of your time building structures, upgrading buildings, and researching “better ways of running the family business.” However, you’ll also get ample opportunities to butt heads with other hoodlums on the streets of the city.
