What Gamespot Users have to say about Omerta: City of Gangsters

  • User Rating 2

    You know you have a problem when a game about organized crime is rated Teen. It has nothing in common with the Mafia.

    They say you can not judge a book by its cover, but I guess you can judge a game by its ESRB rating. In recent years I noticed that almost all RPGs or TBSs/RTSs rated Teen are to be avoided, especiall...

    I don't usually write reviews, but I felt I needed to say something about Omerta. I am a huge fan of gangster movies, always have been, so I was really looking forward to this title. I honestly do not...

    I was looking forward to it, but they dropped the ball.

    I usually always, by rule read reviews before I buy, but I was borde, without a good game at the time and it just looked so good. I am disappointed. The game has some neat elements to it and the gra...

    Great effort but sorely left lacking!

    This game I looked forward to eagerly, waiting for something that replaced the long lost games like Gangsters. The trailers and images looked promising but gameplay gave a different message. I will ad...

    Lots of promise but many missed opportunities.

    I really looked forward to Omerta coming out. I have been looking for something similar to Gangsters for quite some time. There is some fun to be had with the game, but I think this just scratches the...

    Tries to mash up city building and turn based strategy...falls short in both

    Rated on February 07, 2013 by Poodlejumper

    I like Kalypso...I make no beef with it. Tropico is so much fun and a hilarious world building game. It has character and is a challenge. So when I saw the graphically unimpressive but meld of city ...

    Great concept. Too bad the devs had no idea where to take it.

    Rated on February 07, 2013 by Rocket2Uranus

    I feel like this game is a rip off of game Rebuild 2 a flash game that takes place after a zombie apocalypse. Yes I know Omerta isn't about zombies, but I was talking about some part of the game mech...

    A very boring game.

    Rated on February 15, 2013 by lightingbird

    Turn based real time strategy games are one of my favorite types of games. So when I saw this title, I figured it would be a nice twist in this genre. Well, welcome to bore city! This game is a cross...

    Falls way short of my expectations, no real challenge or lasting fun here. Don't waste your money!!!!

    Rated on February 20, 2013 by ferth

    Demo had me excited. Graphics were great, gameplay mechanics were what I was looking for, but after buying it you find the game just lacks depth. Sure there's some more gangsters you can hire and a...
