You talkin' to me?
Sort of like a more strategic version of Grand Theft Auto, this intriguing gangster-themed game has a lot going for it in terms of depth and variety but is let down by a few issues, including bugs, which prevent it from being as good as it should be. The package here includes the base game plus a bunch of DLC so there's no denying there's a lot of content on offer here, and if you do get into it, you'll be playing for a long time. The idea here is to work your way up from small time hood to mob boss in the Roaring Twenties. You have to set up speakeasies, gambling dens and breweries, then make as much money out of them as you can. You're going to need some muscle, so you can hire hoodlums to take your side in the turn-based combat, and equip them with a range of nasty weapons. There are two extensive single-player campaigns to work your way through, with heaps of plot twists and memorable characters, while the city is an authentically replicated version of Atlantic City in the 20s. Omerta is a pretty solid entry into the turn-based strategy genre, which plays out quite nicely but which doesn't provide a whole lot of challenge. The combat isn't as good as Silent Storm but works well enough and is quite fun, with a good range of options to try out. There are plenty of customization options too and the variety of gameplay styles on offer here is probably the game's biggest draw. It's not a perfect RTS or strategy game alone, but when you combine the different elements and its theme, you're left with a solid and mostly enjoyable experience.
