Gangland multiplayer demo

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

A promising mix of strategy, simulation, and role play, Gangland is a solid game with few noticeable shortcomings. You are leader of a small gang in a fantastic Paradise City resembling America in the 1930s. Your task is to manage restaurants and brothels, hire gangsters and command them to fight for you. We were fairly impressed with the game's 3D graphics. You can move the point-of-view camera in any direction, while easy shortcuts allow you to jump to a certain view immediately. The buildings of the city are very detailed; Paradise City has plenty of people on the street, and acts and feels just like a real city. Unfortunately, however, the people models are not varied enough and at times your thugs look just the same as innocent bystanders. Fighting isn't a whole lot of fun as game controls are clunky and things happen too fast. A fast right-clicker will do better than those who want a convenient pause button to think about what to do next. One of the nicer touches of the game story in Gangland is you're also responsible for a family and kids, who can run special errands for you. All said, fans of Mafia-styled games or Godfather-wannabes will definitely find this game entertaining.
