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.

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.
