I'm currently a big fan of the Boardwalk Empire so I was looking forward to this gangster sim. Although, there is no affiliation with the series you're playing in actual landmarks in Atlanta City during the prohibition era. The controls have been simplified for the console, which I like. You can quickly set up jobs for your henchmen like extort, bribe, etc in real-time. The downside is that you have to wait for them to perform those duties, which seems like a drag when you're first starting out with only one henchman. I think a fast forward function would have been a nice addition early on, but if you're playing a sim game I think wait times are expected. The fun starts when you begin to build your empire and send in your goons to go in for kills. There's nothing like setting your guys around the perimeter with tommy guns while you walk in with a bat to beat faces in. :) I'm still building my empire so I'm not sure what it'll be like when I conquer the city, but I'm having fun doing it.
