The game is based in the American city of Chicago in the 1930s, an era heavily associated with gangsters and fuelled by prohibition. The RPG style game allows players to choose to be the mafia, headed by Don Carmine Falcone, or a special unit of the police, headed by Edward Nash.

I only had a small amount of time invested into this game, and I already know how I feel about it. I simply dislike it. It has an interesting story. The gameplay looks nice but I don't know if it was me, being unlucky, or if it was the game, but the game feels very bugged with a lot of issues.
Most importantly, the characters would be lagging, or generally slow to a point that exposed how problematic the game runs. Not only that, but watching videos, the game seems to be a cheap cartoonish rip off of Commandos. While they play similarly and I did like Commandos, this game seemed to rubbed me off like a cheesy 1930s action flick.
The acting wasn't too convicting or appealing either. This game is a dud. Maybe I would of reviewed it higher if I wasn't having issues, and it had more realistic graphics. But that's the cards I was played with, and this is how I dealt them. All I will say is "stay away" this isn't worth the time, and a lack of a community only makes it more unappealing.
A great era title!Xbomborz | Nov. 27, 2011 | See all Xbomborz's reviews »
Chicago 1930 is a combination RPG and Strategy game that is a great example of what a game set in the first half of the 20th century should be like. Featuring varied gameplay, intuitive level design, a great soundtrack, and good graphics, this game is well rounded and complete. If you want a great game based in the age of the mafia, Chicago 1930 is an excellent choice.
