Feb 3, 2013While Omerta has a great gangster style with the black and white photos and jazz music, the gameplay itself feels more like work than playing a videogame. The animations in the fighting scenes are stiff, and the only thing that changes when your influence on Atlantic City grows are the emblems above the houses. All missions start up slow, and especially in the first few hours you are constantly waiting for your henchmen to finish their task.
Mar 4, 2013If Omerta had a persistent world in single player, rather than neighbourhoods which you played then left never to have an impact on you again, or more in depth strategy system when it came to earning money and resources, action cut scenes rather than stills, ok, so it still wouldn't be the greatest game ever, but it would have been worth spending time with.
X-ONE Magazine UKFeb 27, 2013Has far too many rough edges and faults to come close to Firaxis' brilliance. [Issue#95, p.82]

It left me wanting a lot more content that just wasn't there, a few drive-bys and you win so disappointing. Huge potential but missing way to much to work. I could see myself loving this game if it wasn't so dumbed down and had a few more mechanics to make it challenging or interesting.… Full Review »
