Product Description

Omerta - City of Gangsters is a simulation game with tactical turn-based combat. Taking the role of a fresh-from-the-boat immigrant, with dreams of the big life, the player will work his way up the criminal hierarchy of 1920’s Atlantic City. Starting with small jobs, his character recruits a gang and expands his empire by taking territory from other gangsters. Eventually he establishes his own crime syndicate and becomes the de facto ruler of Atlantic City.

The player strategically manages his business and his minions in a real-time format, slowly but steadily increasing his influence over the city. The player sends his henchmen out on missions ranging from assassinating an informant, to raiding a warehouse, springing a friend from prison, robbing a bank, or attacking a rival gang's hideout. Nobody is above the law in Atlantic City, so it always helps to have a little cash handy to bribe a policeman or pay off a politician.

The turn-based combat in Omerta - City of Gangsters focuses on the tactical command of “The Boss” and his henchmen. Cover and stealth are essential parts of any shootout in the game. Finding the best vantage point to gun down an enemy, while taking cover from a hailstorm of bullets, can be just as satisfying as sneaking quietly behind a foe and taking him down.

  • Historically accurate representation of Atlantic City and its landmarks
  • Strategic gameplay allows city overview, planning, expansion and gathering of intel
  • Turn-based tactical combat with a cover system and stealth action
  • 15 unique player controlled characters each with a unique personalities and backgrounds
  • An RPG system for development of player characters and managing their gear
  • Competitive and cooperative multiplayer mode with persistent multiplayer gang
  • 15+ hours of gameplay in a single play-through
  • 20 unique maps visualizing the various districts of Atlantic City

3.0 out of 5 stars Does Omerta make you an offer you cant refuse? 4 Feb 2013
By Chief.
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
'Omerta: City of Gangsters' is a strategy/RPG set during Americas prohibition period. You play an immigrant, fresh off the boat from Italy and intent upon climbing the criminal ladder to become a mafia kingpin.

The game is essentially split into two sections - the strategic map, and the tactical map. The strategic map provides you with an overview of the city and from here you can view your base and the various propertys availible to purchase in order to build your criminal empire.

The key of the strategic map is resource management. You start with a very limited amount of cash which you are required to invest in profit-making establishments known as 'joints', 'premises' or 'constructions'. At the most basic level this will mean building a brewery or distillery in order to produce bootleg beer or liquor. Build a speakeasy and you can then sell this illicit alcohol for money in order to further expand your empire.

There are all manner of different proprty that you can build, from bookmakers, to protection rackets, pawn shops, loan sharks, boxing halls, hotels, casinos and many others. As well as generating income, most properties provide other advantages or can work in conjunction with others to increase efficiancy.

Income is split into two types - 'dirty' or 'clean' money. Due to the illegal nature of most of your ventures the vast majority of your money will be 'dirty', however certain institutions are capible of laundering this money in order to make it 'clean'.

Initially your gang will only consist of you.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ehh, this game 27 Jan 2014
By Bradley
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
Bought this game a while back and at first I loved it, something completely new from Kalypso instead of Tropico, but after a while of playing it and being forced to do the combat parts of the game is HORRIBLE, worst turn based combat I have ever seen, mein gott, I hated every moment of combat.

Forgetting about combat, the actual game itself is fun for awhile, but the game is so easy to play and just way too simple to upgrade everything and have good profits.

Sold the game to CEX not long after buying it. Not recommended unless you hate yourself or whoever you're giving it to.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Darn Good 19 Mar 2013
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
I only had heard of this game about a month before it's release as a fan of XCOM: Enemy Unknown and strategic combat and gangster movies I decided to give it a try...

I enjoyed it very much but it sometimes drags on a bit... you start in a area of the city, do the objectives marked and then proceed to another area... I found the changing objectives to provide some nice variety and change of thinking to what you would create... the combat is good but it bothered me to see that the bodies always seem to lie the same way... like they have a bad case of copy-cat rigor mortis.

The gameplay consists of: Owning joints to earn (dirty) money and some joints to accumulate clean money... and with it there comes an occasionally combat mission/objective based mission... Like I wrote previously it can become tiring but I still enjoyed the game a great deal.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Do it !! Save Yourselves !! 10 Feb 2013
By The Ba
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Being from the publisher behind the pretty good Tropico series and the decent but dull Port Royale series I like some others had hoped this would an good solid simulation/turn based strategy game . How mistaken was I ?

It's dull as ditch-water and even if it was a free game for your smart phone you'd delete it within 10 minutes. Kalypso are a smaller publisher and ideally I'd want to be supportive of them for at least bringing a title to the table that's presenting itself as different to your usual console fare but sadly it's a complete dog . It's so bad that I can't be bothered to list why in full but I will give a bit of an example .

There's a map that never really changes, you click on building A and pick one of three things to do for example: raid, extort or takeover, you repeat this ad infinitum and there you have the core mechanic of the game. I'm not joking. There's no sleight of hand to pretend there's hidden depths, there's certainly no replay value let alone the magic "just five more minutes" feeling. For large parts of the game your sat (I'm maybe being harsh you can of course stand ...or jog on the spot... or as in my case drink tea) waiting whilst you accumulate money to hit the current objective, which takes you to the next objective which is ...wait for it .....to accumulate a slightly bigger sum of money (bit more tea drinking done here). I played it twice, both times for roughly an hour. The second time was just to convince myself I'd not missed something, I hadn't.

If you haven't bought XCOM stop reading this and go buy that at once. If you have either save your money or burn 30.00 as that will surely give you more entertainment than this.

Not a bad game, but not quite as expected. I played through it once, and admittedly it was quite entertaining, but i can't imagine i'd play it again.

Too many people lack common sense these days. A simple search on "the tube" and you will quickly discover what kind of game Omerta is.

In terms of micro-management Omerta is on a similar level as Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution.
However the turn-based combat is even more tactical than in XCom Enemy Unknown.

The story of Omerta takes place in the 1930's Atlantic City. This is unique for this type of game, which tend to be either Fantasy or Sci-fi.
In the game you play a gangster who hopes to build his own empire.

The gameplay is an equal mix of turn-based combat and business micro-management.
However most of the combat events are optional as you can avoid them by simply "buying over" your enemy or ignore them and accept the cost.

You also get to do more combat if you attack certain establishments, for example by doing a heist.
In addition the gangster bosses in each area have extra combat missions for you to do.

So how much combat you get in the game is entirely up to you !!!

Not being a fantasy or sci-fi game the combat is not as spectacular as in something like Enemy Unknown.
In Omerta your squad has old-school weapons like bats, knives, pistols, shotguns and so on.

As in the Tropico games the campaign consists of a set of missions, how you achieve them is up to you. It also has a sandbox mode.

The micro-management system is basic for this type of game: not as complex as in the Tropico series but more so than in Enemy Unknown.
The higher the difficulty-level chosen the more attention you need to place on managing your businesses.

You can earn money through both legal and illegal means. You will most likely end up doing a combination of both.
