Empire of Sin on PC is a new strategy game brought to you by Romero Games and Paradox Interactive. It puts you at the heart of the ruthless criminal underworld of 1920s Prohibition-era Chicago. Slip into the shoes of one of the fourteen real and historically inspired mob bosses. Including Al Capone, Stephanie St. Clair, or Goldie Garneau. Then assemble a rag-tag gang, build and manage your criminal empire, and defend your turf from rival gangs. It’s up to you to hustle, charm, and intimidate your way to the top. Do whatever it takes to stay there – break a leg!
I was looking forward to this game, but what I played felt like an unfinished game. Any turn-based game has a chance to bring something new to the genre, but Empire of Sin simply rips off xcom. This includes hit points and special abilities, which feel out of place in a mafia inspired game. What this does is leads to the bland battles where I simply do the same order of attacks. There were points when I wish I could skip the fights entirely.
Empire of Sin PC Game Review
There is a diplomacy section, which was another part I just wanted to skip. You have to go through similar dialogue with bland characters and pick a deal which makes you marginally better off. Also, I inadvertently finished the game buy assassinating all my rivals, and then my ally. This was all with a couple of clicks!
There are nuggets of good, the map is pretty good and I like the business management part. But then this is ruined by the fact you can just teleport anywhere. So why bother moving around the map at all.
Overall, Empire of Sin on PC just isn’t the game for me. Everything feels like two steps forward, and then one step back. Finally, check out our site for other reviews. Also, don’t forget to connect with the Jabba Reviews team on Facebook or Twitter.
