  1. A highly addictive game with good design and interesting gameplay. The unusual concept and the unraveling plot will keep you glued to the screen. The game is well balanced and keeps getting more complex as you progress deeper into the underground.
  2. An offer gamers may not be able to refuse.
  3. Fans of the original may find the changes made have 'dumbed' down the game whilst casual gamers will find it still too complex for an engaging experience.

    Overall, the game has a sort of generalized, sketchy feel to it.
  5. It's repetitive and confusing in some areas, and too simple in others. And the interface, though easier to understand, is still problematic.
  6. 53
    Not even Eliot Ness and the Untouchables could bust down the doors and reveal the fun in Gangsters 2.
  7. Gangsters 2 just guts the administration and throws in a huge quantity of low quality combat, making for a pretty lame game. Let's strap some cement boots on this one and let it sleep with the fishes.

    I really don't know the number of times I have played the game from start until finish over the last decade. Great Game! I strongly recommendI really don't know the number of times I have played the game from start until finish over the last decade. Great Game! I strongly recommend it. I wish they were able to make a 3rd but that never happened, and won't happen. All we got was Omerta which is really really bad Expand

    A really nice RTS, much more 'alive' than 1.

    It's a great game about old time gangsters, but the control of your gangsters is annoying. The rest of the game is GREAT though.
