'XCOM, but with gangsters' is a hell of a pitch, and it's one that the 1920s-set Omerta: City of Gangsters doesn't quite live up to, presenting a pacy Mafia management game that's sadly not as deep or as tough as it could have been.

The turn-based combat is pure XCOM, but with a shallow simulation side that sees you building and expanding your own Mafia empire, while trying your best not to sleep with the fishes, wake up next to a horse's head or unwittingly star in The Godfather: Part III.

Detailed but not too demanding. Buy this pacy ‘20s Mafia management game for the combat not the commerce.
