Omerta: City of Gangsters

Your comments on our articles.

You have nothing to Mafia but Mafia itself

Last year's XCOM: Enemy Unknown brought action turn-based strategy to console gamers with style, polish and commercial success. Omerta tries the same fusion of top-level strategic oversight, with individual skirmishes resolved in a turn-based game of battle chess. Sadly, the style and polish here are noticeable only by the buttock imprints on the chairs where they're no longer sitting.... read more

Doesn't sound like a lot of these issues are console-specific either which was one of my concerns... :| The PC version has received some higher scores so could still be 'worth a look' - but it's also had some stinkers too so it's likely you'll want to keep your bargepole safely locked away!

Maybe some will still like it after trying it, but doesn't suggest that even then it'll be a pant wetting success for those that do...

There's a demo available for PC for those who do want to take it for a spin, shame they didn't kick out a 360 version too!

I played that demo, I didn't play it for long (took me ages to acquire too due to the mirrors not working, had to bit-torrent it) it seemed very cheesy if anything, I couldn't stand being around the characters voices so I skipped the dialogue, all in all it put me off but I will concede like I said, I didn't play too long.

Yeah, Matt had some XCOM-fired high hopes for it. And Tropico 3 was actually really good.

I've left my pre-order on aswell, too late to cancel it now. :| Might have to sell it through Amazon, it's the Shopto pre-order so it comes with a pack of cards, think it'll be alright if I sell them along with it.

Shame, after XCOM I was expecting more strategy, that'll teach me to get my hopes up again. :cry:

I find it better for others to form a better worded one for me. :wink:

No no, I'm going to rent it first, if it's turns out shit then at least I've not wasted as much money, but if it's good and I like it, then I'll keep it.

Too bad the demo would kill the laptop, otherwise I'd give it a go on that.

It does have me worried at how good it'll be though or Log just might not be a fan. I'd have just rather cancel the pre-order, rent it and buy it when cheaper, that's all, saves money in the long run and puts Lovefilm to use when I'm running out on things to watch.

I agree, I'm taking logs word for it and not buying it, if forumers say it's great I'll give it a go but not expecting to. Seems better to sell it than rent I just thought maybe you would play it anyway but your method makes sense monetarily. Is that a word? I seem to be making them up these days...

I'm surprised that this has turned out rubbish seeing as it was made the by makers of Tropico. Perhaps they could make a DLC that reveals what's on the pizza's.
