Macworld's Game Room has posted a review of Virtual Programming's Gangland. Using a combination of role playing, real time strategy, and third person action, Gangland allows players to step into the role of a Mafioso as he attempts to make his way to the top of the criminal heap. Problems with the AI and the game's derivative storyline prevented Gangland from receiving more than 2 out of 5 mice from the Game Room.
From the review:
Sadly, the AI that controls your henchmen is ridiculously underdeveloped. My hired guns waded right into the middle of a gunfight as if nothing was happening, took as much damage as they could manage, and then keeled over dead. Yeah, real helpful. To read the entire review click on the link below.
Macworld Game Room: Gangland Review
The game’s 3-D environment comes in handy during gunfights; you can crouch and hide behind furniture, walls, vehicles and other obstructions. But be warned—it’s easy to tick off the regular civilians of Paradise City. More than once, I found myself getting into gunfights with regular Joes and Janes just walking down the street.
