Hey all,

So i was going through some of my older games and playing the Gangster Genre that I really like. I was playing old games like Gangsters, Gangsters 2, Mob Rule and Ganglandand came to realize that I haven't seen a gangster game like that in a while. Only thing that has been coming out is shooters like Mafia, and The Godfather. Anybody know of any other good Gangster / Mob games like those which have some strategy behind it.

Thanks to all those who respond.

Mafia 2 is the only one I can think of, but I doubt it will have the strategy/management elements of, say, The Godfather or Gangsters.

Yeah. Looks like it will just be a straight up FPS. Oh well. Here is hoping a strategy sim comes out soon.

It's not FPS.. its meant to be similar style to the original Mafia.. which is a Third Person Action game.. doesn't seem like you've played it, definatly give it a go.

You can try Escape from Paradise City. It was made by the same people that did Gangland. Seems to play exactly the same too. The only problem is that it's a modern gangster game, so you don't have old school 30's mobster types, you have the GTA typegangster guys.

I loved Gangsters 1. I really sucked at it though.

OOps Sorry about that. Meant to say 3rd person, over the shoulder. I did play it for the PC, hated the speed limit they imposed, but it was fun.
