"Gangster era Xcom-style game. While not as deep tactically as Xcom it is still very fun and ofter overlooked game."

Worth playing Turn-Based Strategy Simulation game. Omerta - City of Gangsters's gameplay is somewhat unique and takes time to sum up and complete variety of missions and side-missions. The combat system is accurate enough, fighting against one another showing whose turn will be next and what you'll do and when it's your next move. I'm enjoying the game right now since I like simulation games like these. I got it on sale, not for full price, but I still appreciate it. Looking forward for upcoming updates.

Seems like an okay XCOM tactical style game, maybe not as much depth but pretty decent all the same... can't grumble for £2.99 for the Gold edition on Bundlestars.

Pros:
Great turn-based combat
Good character development
Good graphics
combat can be auto-resolved

Cons:
Limited Upgrade oppurtunities
Sometimes felt like repeating the same stuff did in previous missions
AI is always lucky in combat and weapons accuracy is wrong imo

I don't understand why it got such poor ratings in many gaming websites. If anyone know about Chicago 1930, an old school game similar to this. I felt like playing the same great game with much more advanced features and gameplay. Not to spoil the main character development is one of the best. If you are a mafia fan and like the turn based games, I think this one is worth buying it

Purchased this via Bundlestar and i'm glad i did. It's a bit like Mafia 2, The Godfather and 911 First Responders had a child and this is the result.

Definitley worth playing!

I got this game as gift for preordering an other game.
Now i am not really into crime games but i was bored so i gave it a try.
I loved every second of it.

If you consider buying this game:
Dont.

It isnt grand theft auto, tropico or anything big like that.
It is a fun little game where you do missions and build a criminal empire.
It has a good money system, a nice combat system and a decent story.
Just dont have high expectations.
This game is a fun because it is simple, easy and doesnt require much thought beyond your basic:
Action and consequence.

I only recommend it for people who like me:
Want our games to be games and not interactive movies.

At first I had felt that it was a bad investment. After a little while though, I started to enjoy it.

And I still haven't stopped.

A great game, for those who like city/building, and xcom tactic like combat areas. Not a fan of mob stuff, but liked this game very much, the cast was very enjoyable, and their development was great. story/dlc stories are excellent as well.

I bought this game for a quick weekend play, thinking it would be an interesting pastime that I'd binge-play once or twice and then never touch again. Boy was I wrong: Omerta sucked me in with its huge campaign, awesome mechanics, cool characters and absolutely amazing soundtrack. Seriously, the soundtrack is among the greatest Jazz/Swing stuff I have ever heard, and I listen to that type of music regularly. If you like the idea of being a prohibition-era gangster and don't mind not having Mass Effect-level cutscenes (this game does not have ANY real cutscenes, just quick montages) and buy and sell on a city-spanning market of beer, liquor and guns, this game is absolutely for you.

Also, it has a DLC-campaign that is roughly the same length as the original one, and I have not even played through half of it. So buy this game, especially if it is on sale, because it really is worth your hard earned clean money.

Picked this up on sale, I felt, after playing 5 missions or so, that the game itself was very shallow. I was expecting it to _at least_ be on par with 'Gangsters: Organized Crime' which was released in 1998 (i think?). It really felt like the developers focused more on the visual and auditory effects of the game, rather than focusing on depth of in-game mechanics. The game gets pretty boring after a couple hours of playing. I wouldn't recommend buying this, unless it was on sale...

Combat in this game is atrocious. The final battle is an exercise in absolute frustration.

Very repetitive,same structure to every mission.

Took my nearly 2 years to some up the ability to finish it.

Buy something else.

I think they wanted to try something new in this game, and sadly it just didn't work. The game is too scripted, when they have the knowledge and technology to make a fantastically dynamic and fun game in this genre. One step behind and they just took a wrong turn somewhere. Wait to see if someone else does it right and save your money.
