    Gangsters: Organized Crime

    I was talking to Torith the other day via instant messenger about the game. It was a surprize to me that he has it and i'm wondering if anybody else here has it as well. He thinks he can wipe me out in 12 weeks with hoods, but i'm betting her wouldn't even get past my office front.

    If you don't know what Gangsters is its a game where its the 1920s and you organize your minons to run around the city. The purpose of the game is to wipe the 3 other gangs out in the game. it includes extortion, murder, torching, bombing, bribing, assaulting, and collecting your protection. If you have some handy businessmen you can buy out shops and setup fronts for your illegal businesses. If you want to buy gangsters go to http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...e&s=videogames for details. I'm hoping to have a cable connection in the next few months, so i'll be able to play you soon enough!

    I always start out well but by the time I'm attacking rival gangs, I've expanded so much the micromanagement becomes too much and I give up.

    I didn't really like Gangsters 2 all too well... I prefer the first one because its fun. I'm usually wiping out the orange gang by week 5. I just got done earlier on today with my as Kerry "The Wrench" Jones. I ended up securing 490 blocks of terroritory with a value of $750,000 and 156 hoods to do my bidding by week 42. If you guys are ever interested in playing i'd play when I get cable. otherwise it will just d/c me because AOL is gay!
