Is it worth the $40?

I know this is kind of a dumb question, but I loved the old Gangsters games and I kinda want to know whether this is worth the bucks or not.

In short, If you feel 15-20 hours of mediocre gameplay is worth 40 dollars than it is. The combat is the only decent part since it is the only part that requires some for of strategy, the street view is WAY too lax and easy even on the hardest levels.

personally, I felt it wasn't worth it, but then again i have wasted $40 dollars on more frivolous things than this. I can only hope my 40 bucks will be put to a more developed sequel.

EDIT: I forgot to mention that its only 20% like the original games, they gutted the management severely and focused more on the combat.

Not at all. 20 at max. Probably less...

I don't think it's worth $40. I pre-ordered on Steam for $33 I think and I'm disappointed with my purchase. I would wait for a price drop or steam sale if you want to play it. There's also a demo which basically lets you do everything in the game (gameplay is very repetitive).

Well now I just need to figure out how to make my old Gangsters games work on windows 7

I feel like I'm getting my money's worth, but I also have a very low bar on what I expect from games of this genre. People who are looking for a real challenge or refined turn-based combat probably won't be interested at full price.

I used to play the old gangster games too. I'm in the demo right now and am wondering if there are rival gangs to compete with - or just random hoodlums hold up in dark buildings.

Those 40$ would be better spent getting some classic games from GOG. xD

It's actually not a bad game for $10-15.

Absolutely not at all worth it for $40 or anywhere near that range.

If you can get it for less then sure, but I wouldn't spend $40 on it.
