Welcome to The Godfather! The video game depiction of the classic movie of the same name. In The Godfather, you take on the role of a self created character and work your way up the ranks to eventually assume the mantle of 'The Don of NYC'. This is a fairly straight forward, although somewhat time consuming list of achievements, but they aren't too difficult and once you have gotten 100% you can be proud of the effort it took to obtain it.
As stated in the above rundown, cheats do not affect your ability to unlock the achievements, so should you feel the need for a little helping hand, you can enter them without worrying about the achievements.
*Note: These cheats are time-sensitive and you will have to wait 7 - 10 minutes before re-entering them.
To enter the cheat codes, while you are playing, pause the game and enter the codes listed below for the desired effect.

Step 1 - Story
Your first step, naturally, would be to complete the story of the game and along the way obtain as many of the achievements as possible. You can't miss any of the achievements as you can continue playing after you have finished with the story, although you should take caution in which achievements you decide to procrastinate on as although you can't miss any, there are a few that will become a lot more time consuming if you leave them too late. These are primarily, "Public Enemy Number One" (Reach Respect Level 50), and "Executioner" (Complete ALL Execution Styles). These become a lot more time consuming as you need rival family members to kill for xp towards 'Public Enemy Number One' and you can only obtain credit for executions towards 'Executioner' by doing these executions on rival family members and after completing the story, there are very few rival family members left and finding them becomes a challenge in itself.
Step 2 - Clean up
After completing the story, you will have obtained a great many of the achievements from the game, but you will undoubtedly have some of the more time consuming ones left. These will likely be the achievements for taking over all of the fronts and doing all of the various mission types, as well as the collectible achievements. As for the majority of the achievements requiring you to take over all of the fronts and do all of the missions, the locations of where to go to do these will all be on your map, which can be found through the pause menu. For help in finding the collectible, refer to the achievement guide for a link to a map showing you where to find them all.
After completing the main game and obtaining the original 1000, you can now start on playing through the Corleone Challenges DLC. To access these challenges, you need to select them from the main menu and from there you can choose which one to play. These are separate from the main game, but you still use your created character as well as your weapons from the main game. Each one of these challenges is timed and you will need to complete the challenge goal within the allotted time to succeed and unlock the corresponding achievement.
*Note the EA servers have been shut down for this game, but this DOES NOT affect your ability to earn the full 1250. The servers where for the leaderboard feature only. If you are having trouble starting the Corleone Challenges DLC, please refer to This thread for a step by step guide on how to access them.
So there you have it! Although, now quite dated, this game is a classic and must be played by casual gamers and hardcore achievement hunters alike. There is not much else to say about the achievements. A solid list and a very good investment of anyone's money, you will be entertained for a good few hours while you hunt for these achievements.
