Description

Gangsters: Organized Crime is set in a fictional city in Prohibition-era America, featuring over 5000 citizens including 400 individual gangsters. The player's goal is to take all the riches, through bribery, theft and aggression.

Gameplay is a combination of Sim City-style building and turn-based planning, where you have lieutenants who do the dirty work for you. The more blocks in the city you take over, the more people you have loving your work, making it easier to control each area. But be careful, there are three other gangs out there, so blood can get spilled easily.

Marketing

Eidos made plans to hire an actual gangster, convicted in the 1960s, to appear at a trade show in Europe to promote the game. When the press came down on them hard for this stunt, Eidos PR was quick to downplay it.
