Diehard GameFAN: Omerta: City of Gangsters Review

DHGF: Omerta: City of Gangsters is the sort of game manages to take the fun concepts of city simulation and turn-based combat, cross them with the promising concept of Prohibition era mafia concepts, and turn all of this into a bland, uninteresting mess. The only standout element is the voice work, as everything else, from the visuals to the audio to the gameplay to the plot is serviceable at best, only occasionally enjoyable, and generally devoid of originality. On the other side, the plot is clichéd, the visuals are repetitive, and the audio is glitchy and either skips or dies entirely as you play for no reason at all. (Omerta - City of Gangsters, Xbox 360) -

Too bad. I'm kinda still interested in this game, I enjoyed Tropico 3 and 4, not because they were revolutionary, but because they dared to bring a genre that's predomindantly on PC to consoles and at least make a playable game.

I wish well for developers of this sort.
