Omerta: City of Gangsters

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: When a Don asks you a favor, you can't refuse 'em. No matter what, you have to take what's on the table, and one day, somewhere down the line, he'll return that favor. Omerta: City of Gangsters asked me to buy into the idea that it would show me a meaningful series of events, moral choices, and a complex combat system. It promised me an enjoyable experience. Halfway in, I found out that I was the victim of a fix. A setup, you see.

  • Conclusion: How is this the first time I've had a chance to shoot the KKK in a game?
  • Pros: Killing three foes with a single Tommy Gun burst.
  • Cons: Watching grass grow (figuratively) as I waited for a glitch-slowed clock to advance.

Review: Omerta: City of Gangsters (Microsoft Xbox 360)

Diehard GameFAN
19 April 2013
  • Summary: : 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.

  • Conclusion: Bland, boring, and turgid to the last - look to Tropico 4 for a fine example of micromanagement, or instead XCOM Enemy Unknown for turn-based kicks: Omerta: City of Gangsters deserves to be thrown in a trunk and taken "someplace up state.

‘Omerta: City of Gangsters’ Review

Stick Skills
23 February 2013
  • Excerpt: The Bulgarian developer Haemimont Games  is mostly known for their flagship franchise in the dictatorial Tropico series. Over the past two installments, they’ve proven that they are good at city-building games, and one would typically expect them to stick to their bread and butter. However, they’ve just released their first foray into the turn-based strategy realm with Omerta: City of Gangsters.

True achievements
19 February 2013
  • Conclusion: I'm usually forgiving of a few glitches here and there, but there's no excuse for the non-stop audio problems. Someone knew they were putting out a shoddy product and did it anyway. I bought this game partly because Haemimont published it, but from now on, I will be wary of their products, But make no mistake - it isn't just about the glitches. Even if they were all fixed, the game still wouldn't be fun.

  • Conclusion: "The strong premise of the story fades quickly..." "The unrefined nature of the combat sections is unforgivable..." "This makes for a surprisingly tension-free game...
  • Pros: Occasionally almost feeling like The Godfather, Imagining the possibilities of this concept in defter hands, Matching squad members to the missions
  • Cons: Simplistic resource management and strategy, Awkward, confusing combat, Dry, easily-ignored plotline
