GAME INFO

Empire of Sin, the strategy game from Romero Games and Paradox Interactive, puts you at the heart of the ruthless criminal underworld of 1920s Prohibition-era Chicago. It’s up to you to hustle, charm and intimidate your way to the top of the pile and do whatever it takes to stay there. This character-driven, noir-inspired game puts players smack dab in the glitz and glamor of the roaring 20s, all while working behind the scenes in the gritty underbelly of organized crime.

Empire of Sin is a promising strategy and management game, but it fails to live up to its aspirations due to a ton of bugs and balancing issues.

Fraser Brown (PC Gamer)

49/100

“Empire of Sin’s many bugs, balance issues and competing systems undermine what could have been a novel mob management game.”

Jonathan Bolding (IGN)

4/10

“Empire of Sin’s criminal management sim and turn-based tactical combat combo sounds brilliant on paper, but it completely fails to live up to its aspirations due to major imbalances and bugs.”

Dean Takahashi (GamesBeat)

4/5 stars

“Empire of Sin has its bugs and some rough cinematic moments. But Romero Games pulled this project off with a team of just 30 people. For a game of its ambition, that seems like a small team. It’s pretty much an indie project, or perhaps “double-A,” compared to other games that are more polished but have hundreds of developers — or even more — working on them.”
