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.

Omerta: City of Gangsters is a prohibition era set management simulation game, with turn based strategy combat. Played over small areas of the games setting, Atlantic City, you take on the role as a mob boss who must hire henchmen to carry out your bidding, buy property, set up illegal businesses, supply them, deal with local contacts, bribe officials, take what you want by force or buy your way to the top. Your character can be molded into a certain combat/play style via the opening boss creation i.e smart & agile with pistols or big & dumb with melee & as you gain experience in game you can add new traits & upgrade abilities. Likewise you can mold your henchmen similarly, all of whom have particular starting talents & abilities. Then equip weapons(which can be upgraded with different types), as at certain points you have the option or will be engaged in combat, which takes place in similar turn based style to that of XCOM Enemy Unknown/Fallout 1. As you maneuver your wise guys across the battlefields of offices, depots or jails & the like.
Overall i found the game to be enjoyable, but not quite living up to the high expectations i had hoped for. The management side is quite nice, reminiscent to the enjoyable (albeit buggy) Eidos title Gangsters: Organised Crime back in the late 1990's, but far more easy, even when playing on the hardest setting. There is a little bit of everything to do, but quite simplistic & not with as much depth to it, as i'd had liked there to have been to challenge me more.Read more ›
I'll admit that I've not played it for more than a few hours but if this helps anyone avoid spending the money I feel I've just wasted on this game then hopefully this review is somewhat useful.
The graphics are incredibly basic, think 1990s, and the storyline option feels very constrained and unimaginative, possibly the sandbox option is more exciting. Basically you have a bunch of 'click here' and build/buy/raid this building type options, which generally result in your character running off to that building, going inside and completing that action... riveting stuff from your bird's eye view.
I thought that perhaps the combat scenarios would improve the monotony of the managerial side of things, but if anything I found these becoming progressively more tedious. I think again the constraints are what make it so frustrating, you can only use a certain character when it is their turn, you cannot select between characters like in X-COM. Indeed, if you are expecting X-COM standard of gameplay here you will be sorely disappointed. I would argue it doesn't even come close to the original X-COM combat missions, perhaps only in the standard of the graphics, which are equally as abysmal as the managerial view.
To sum up: I have just played this for the past four hours and I am not certain I will ever play it again.
