My first review. I naturally compare this game to X-Com Enemy Unknown. The combat is good enough. The only gripe there is the available cover. Plenty looks available. But unlike X-Com walls and other obvious cover is NOT cover. However the building and resources aspect of this game is much deeper than X-Com. Plenty of creative ways to generate income. Unfortunately the income is mostly spent on generating new ways to get income instead of say, weapons. The plot is also much better driven than X-Com. You are a gangster building an empire. And the game does a great job of making you feel like that's what your doing. So if you're looking to build a mob empire this is the game for you. If you'd like to focus more on strategic combat...stick with X-Com.
Don't listen to the negitives so much. It is an oook game, but try and RP it yourself as the "story" can be scraped as it ha sno purpose or any decent, and know the game going to feel like a tutorial the entire time there is nothing more to it in the first levels compared to the last other than more/less units and constructing clean $ required places if you really want to count that.
would actually give this a 4.01 but had to boost its rating a tiny bit from all the negitive people.
