Electronic Art’s latest PC title has been cracked and leaked on the internet 4 days before the game’s official release. The Godfather 2 is the sequel to 2006’s video game Godfather : The Game and is scheduled to be released in North America on the 10th of April. Like many EA published games, TGF 2 is protected by SecuROM DRM. As usual, scene group RELOADED have cracked the protection and released a working copy on scene topsites which has now leaked to publicly accessible means such as BitTorrent trackers and so on.
RELOADED’s release consists of a full DVD ISO of the game (which is 6.36GB in size), a cracked executable as well as the usual NFO file. By combining the ISO image with cracked exe, pirates and legitimate users alike are seemingly able to play the game, bypassing the DRM software.
UPDATE: Some users have reported freezes or hangs at character setup screen.
Anyways as mentioned in the article above, RELOADED’s release has leaked all over the internet, including on private torrent trackers:

Currently there aren’t many reviews of this game around – it has a decent average score of 70% on Gamerankings but this is just based on two reviews. Anyways this game looks like it’s better than the first one – hope it lives up to the hype.
