This is one of the games where I'd like to have an option in between recommended and not recommended.
It fully deserves a "Meh." and that's just what I'm gonna give it.
So I am not saying that you shouldn't get it, neither that you should.
The idea and setting are nice and the game is fun in the beginning, but gameplay just remains absolutely the same all the way through.
Step one: Let's build a mafia business with illegal alcohol and stuff
Step two: Oh look, the (other) bad guys! Let's kill all of them.
Step three: Congrats, you win! Now go the next place.
Over and over and over and over and over.
The economics are extremely simple and the whole game is very repetitive. That doesn't mean it isn't fun for a few hours, but finishing it is one of those things life is just simply too short for. I lost interest somewhere on the way.
tl:dr: Meh game, fun for a few hours, getting it on sale may be worth it, but you probably won't finish it.
