    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The game itself is a great twist on an original game. I've been playing on and off for nine months, and it's really fun. Some people abuse their responsibilities, but with the trial system and helpful moderators, everything can remain balanced. The game itself makes everyone feel like they have a part to play, and there's never a dull moment in the game, until you die, but ignore that. Overall, it's an amazing game. Expand

It's gameplay is not comparable to any other games because of its uniqueness and they keep generating new content. This is probably the best game where you don't even have to spend a single penny to become one of the best. Most people complain about the community, but I barley ever see (or at least notice) any people using multiple accounts or using Skype. This is probably the best game I have ever played and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys playing games. Expand

    The classic game is very much the same as Mafia wherein a small number of “Mafia” members must trick, lie and kill in cooperation againstThe classic game is very much the same as Mafia wherein a small number of “Mafia” members must trick, lie and kill in cooperation against ‘townspeople’ who do not know each others identities.

    Each player is randomly given a role card with a specific goal and ability that will aid them in their objective. Mafia can only kill at night and townspeople can vote to lynch one player during the day.

    Due to the random nature of the roles and the popularity of this game, each Town of Salem game is different. You may run into an especially vicious team of mafia or you may have a really cooperative town that works cohesively together against the evil doers.

    I really love this game because of its simple nature and the camaraderie you form with people on your team. Being the Mafia is sadistically fun and requires a lot of deception and well timed remarks from you and your teammates to trick others into believing your innocence.

    Graphics are simple but they do their job. The one thing that could be improved on is the lag. The lag is ridiculous sometimes and really ruins the atmosphere of the game. Sometimes the graphics don’t even work although you can technically still play without it. I am told that the steam version is much better but that costs 5$ and for the average casual player, probably isn’t work the investment.

    That being said, a fantastic game and one that I highly recommend groups of friends to play together. Beware, this game tests the mettle of your friendship.

    This game is completely unbalanced, the biggest problem is that there are no consequences for people who leave at the beginning of the game.This game is completely unbalanced, the biggest problem is that there are no consequences for people who leave at the beginning of the game. There are people screaming nazi paroles and nothing happens with them. Gamethrower face no consequences and the game gets worse with every patch. Expand
