Omerta: City of Gangsters is a complicated game with many interesting facets set in a prohibition era Atlantic City. While we loved the setting, the strategy, and what the game tries to do; the sum of the pieces seemed to miss being a cohesive whole. The biggest complaint our reviewer had was related to the game's combat system, they found it a bit frustrating and shallow at times. Luckily it seems developer Haemimont have heard fan feedback and is preparing a major patch for the game.
This week we have games dealing with aliens, gangsters, and more aliens. I'll let you figure out which game is which.
Omerta: City of Gangsters has gone gold and will be available on the Xbox 360 and PC on February 12th. The turn based strategy game is being developed by Haemimont Games, who also developed Tropico 3 and co-op game The First Templar. The game takes place in a 1920s Atlantic City with the player taking the role of an immigrant working his way up the criminal hierarchy. The single player campaign is said to offer over 15 hours of content through a historically accurate Atlantic City on 20 different maps. There's no word if Enoch Johnson (aka Nucky Thompson) plays a part in the game, but we gotta hope for at least one cameo, right?
A new video has popped up on YouTube that is showing off the co-op play in Omerta: City of Gangsters. Assemble your mob because you're going to need all the firepower you can get in the upcoming criminal-empire building from Kalypso Media.
There's a new game on the horizon from the developers of Tropico, Haemimont Games, that should be on turn-based strategy fans radars. It's called Omerta: City of Gangsters and it puts players in the role of a "the boss" - an immigrant on the rise in a mafia like family set in Atlantic City during the 1920s.
