City of Gangsters
Top Critic Average
Even if you’re at peace with managing deliverymen with tommy guns, City of Gangsters is a bit of a difficult sell. At its core, it is a long and unexciting game. A lot of the time I felt like I was trying to decode the game’s logic and keep plates spinning rather than run a successful bootlegging operation. When everything clicks, it can be somewhat satisfying, but that happens so rarely, you’d think the game was sampling its own wares.
Overall, City of Gangsters is a fine title that attempts some fun twists on the 4X genre. The setting is excellent, the art is good, and the music is atmospheric. It would have benefitted from a little voice acting, especially in the tutorials, as this game has a lot of text to read. City of Gangsters demonstrates that the 4x genre works just as well in miniature as it does in grand, sweeping epic spans of history.
City of Gangsters is strategy mafia management game that excels with its character interaction and trading mechanics, and is just as much fun as the giants of the strategy genre.
City of Logistics Managers is an excellent game, even if it may not be the one you're anticipating.
While City of Gangsters is a solid mafia management sim, the combat holds it back from greatness. Be sure to check out a trailer or two to see what's in store first.
City of Gangsters is a full-fledged simulation. It can consume hours of your playtime, but it can also be frustrating at times.
