Countless games have been released over the past several years that promise players the chance to take control over various environments and locales, making businesses prosper, theme parks flourish, and if you're crazy enough, airports thrive. Konami Europe decided to delve into the relatively unexplored area of casino management in their latest effort, Casino Inc., which puts players in charge of their very own casino; with the ability to manage several casinos within the city at once, players get a real sense of the casino life during the 1970s. By combining a cartoon like theme along with mature content, Casino Inc. succeeds on delivering on several levels; comic relief mixed with serious issues makes for one fun game. Ladies and gentlemen, let's build a casino.
Game Chronicles
Casino Inc. brings a new look to casino simulators, flaunting the dark side of gambling in its heyday. While lacking a Joe Pesci-like sense of chaotic brutality and a Sharon Stone-like sexiness, Casino Inc. requires more than just good business sense, it needs a good dose of immorality and aggression for real success. Manage your staff, your knaves and your customers so you can have your own piece of The Strip. Just make sure you keep sending the boss in Chicago his cut, or you might just find out where Jimmy Hoffa is after all—in the grave next to yours.

Casino Inc. spielt sich besser, als es die lahme Grafik vermuten lässt. Das liegt vor allem an den sehr klaren Zielvorgaben: Dadurch bleiben Spielkonzept und die Anforderungen an den Spieler immer transparent. Sie wissen genau,welche Fehlentscheidung zu leeren Kassen geführt hat. Blöd nur, dass kleine Macken in der Steuerung (Drehung nur per Tastatur, Menüs manchmal unlogisch) den Spaß einschränken. Wen die sterile Optik nicht stört, wird eine Weile Spaß am Glückspiel-Tycoon haben.
In general, Casino Inc. is a nice-looking, smooth-playing game. Unfortunately, aside from some minor differences, this game is quite similar to the Sierra title, Hoyle Casino Empire. Both teams appear to be cut from the same swatch of cloth, just shaped a little differently. For players of the competitive title, you will likely want to pass on this one. But for players looking for a decent business simulation that keeps the general flavor light, you might want to gamble on this title.

Casino Inc est la meilleure simulation de casino jamais faite, mais ce n'était pas très dur, il faut bien l'avouer. Cependant, il possède un moteur 3D vraiment correct et offre une profondeur de jeu rarement atteinte par des jeux de Tycoons, exception faite du Sim Golf de Sid Meier. Petite carence : on ne peut pas se divertir soi-même avec les jeux.
Kasinobisneksestä voisi ihan oikeastikin saada aikaiseksi loistavan rakentelupelin kunhan sen suunnittelusta ja toteutuksesta vastaisi joku Maxisin kaltainen homman kunnolla taitava pelitiimi. Valitettavasti tämä Konamin puolivillainen viritelmä toistaa liikaa surkean Casino Empiren virheitä ja vaikka kokonaisuus hieman tätä monipuolisemmaksi yltääkin, tipauttavat sekava ja epämääräinen pelattavuus, epäloogisuus ja viimeistään luotaantyöntävä grafiikka sen ansaitsemat pisteet tasapaksua keskivertoperuspeliä kuvaavaan seitsemäänkymmeneen, valitettavasti.
Casino Inc. est le premier jeu de la société Konami qui est sorti sur PC. Konami est un des plus importants éditeurs console qui a brillé grâce à la qualité de ses jeux. Pour augmenter son rayon d'action, cette entreprise à choisi de s'attaquer au marché pc.

Wenn ganze Heerscharen zahlungskräftiger Glücksritter an einarmige Banditen und Roulette-Tische strömen, um die Portokasse auf den Kopf zu hauen und den Gewinn später an dekadent geschmückten Theken bei überteuerten Drinks wieder versaufen, freut sich der Manager des Etablissements über sein sorgloses Leben. Casino Inc. macht Schluss mit dieser Vorstellung, denn die Arbeit eines Casino-Bosses ist hier wahrlich kein Zuckerschlecken.
The fact that this and other features don't actually work as they should doesn't really help Casino Inc., a game that already suffers from inconsistent sound and a problematic interface. Though Casino Inc. does occasionally let you feel like you are running a bustling casino, all too often, it interrupts the action with an important event that you'll have to micromanage, and you'll be reminded all over again of just how inadequate the game's interface is. Considering that the game has only a handful of single-player scenarios (though each is fairly long) and no free-form sandbox building mode, it seems unlikely that you'll be able to get much out of the game once you're finished with it.

I thought I’d have the freedom to build, say, a hiker casino with lots of strippers and heavy metal music. Instead, I got stuck meeting pedestrian objectives like “increase your gambling share by 20 percent.” The game teases you with the dark side of casinos, then sticks you in micromanagement hell. There’s no chance to enjoy watching card cheats and juvenile delinquents disrupt your competitors when the voice-over guide is continually whining. “The staff is asking for a raaaaise.” Constantly hiring and firing staff while monitoring smiley face morale markers hardly qualifies as Tarentino-esque adult fun. So maybe I’m uncool, maybe not, but I’m old enough to recognize a bad game with a weak hook and no heart.
A casino management sim seems like an obvious choice for the tycoon genre, and in point of fact, it is. But if you're dying to play a business sim in which customers regularly toss their cookies, you'll have more fun with the Rollercoaster Tycoon series than this mess of a game.
