Moved to the Trivia tab.
* BannedInChina: The sequel is currently banned in the United Arab Emirates due to political tensions with Italy.

* TheOtherDarrin - Both played straight and averted: ** Michael isn't voiced by Al Pacino, or even looks like him, since Pacino licensed his likeness to another company for the Scarface game. ** Vito, on the other hand, does look and sound a lot like MarlonBrando, but his VA is actually an imitator, as Brando's health prevented him from recording all of his lines. The only place you actually hear Brando is in the hospital scene when he's talking to Michael, as Brando's respirator doesn't sound out of place. ** Rocco Lampone and Carmella Corleone do make brief appearances, but they look and sound nothing like their movie characters, which suggests the estate of Tom Rosqui nor Morgana King did not give permission for their likenesses to be used. ** Averted with most of the other characters, who look and sound eerily like their movie counterparts, with James Caan, Robert Duvall, Abe Vigoda (though not the still livingJohn Martino) reprising their movie roles, and others (such as Luca and Clemenza) played by virtual sound-alikes.

* PropRecycling: The Dodge Super Bee lookalike car in ''Godfather II'' is a retextured version of Carson Opus from ''[[BurnOut Burnout Paradise]]''.

Added DiffLines:
* AbandonedHospital: The first game has an abandoned hospital...because of bribery. The only people left inside are Don Corleone, a wounded mafia soldier and your love interest. And the window in the next room has just shattered...

Added DiffLines:
* AlwaysCheckBehindTheChair: Missions in the first game's UsefulNotes/{{Wii}} version (and possibly others) have money bags hidden with varying degrees of visibility. If you don't get them while you can, they're LostForever.

Added DiffLines:
* BigDamnFireExit: There are also at least two sequences where you have to find your way through a burning building - and yep, everything is burning, except that one path that leads straight to your goal. (In fact, this game is somewhat of a serial perpetrator of this - all of the Warehouse and Transport Hub missions use the same two-or-three warehouse-maps, but lock and block different doors and stairwells while placing the Racket Boss in different places to ensure that you always have just ONE route to take, but it's a different one each time.)

Added DiffLines:
* AMinorKidroduction: The first game begins with Aldo witnessing his father's murder and the destruction of their family bakery by the Barzinis and Don Corleone's promise that he'll be able to take his revenge. Flash forward nine years...

* EasterEgg: On the mission where you help protect Vito in the hospital, if you go up to Vito's room while Michael is talking to him and listen in, the conversation is one of MarlonBrando's last recorded performances. A [[TheOtherDarrin Marlon Brando soundalike]] was used for Vito's other scenes, as Brando was too ill to complete his work.

* HyperspaceArsenal
to:
* HyperspaceArsenalHyperspaceArsenal: Aldo keeps a massive arsenal a shotgun, 2 handguns, a Tommy gun, garrote wire, 1 stick of dynamite, 4 Molotovs, 1 bomb, and a burning two by four in some versions, along with all the attendant ammo inside of his shirt. Plus you can upgrade your Street Smarts to increase the carry limit on your throwables, and upgrading your weapons increases the max ammo capacity.

** You can actually kill Corleones by randomly firing your gun, they will come running to you and continue to shoot and they'll follow you. Do this until they're near a fire barrel then blow it up. Also a good way to kill people without your heat and vendetta levels going up.(even policeman)

* AwesomeYetPractical: Due to the sequel's increased focused on mobility making methodical headshotting hard to pull off, the automatic weapon has become this. Large ammo clip, MoreDakka and better accuracy than the first game's version, what's not to like?

* BoomHeadshotBoomHeadshot: Almost everyone can be killed with a headshot even from the weakest weapon.

* BulletproofVest: The sequel has bulletproof vests as a reward for completing the diamond smuggling crime ring. They only reduce damage and don't guard the head or limbs.
