Review: Empire of Sin – Living the Mobster Life

It took twenty years for Romero Games to release the highly anticipated Empire of Sin, and all we can say is that it was worth the wait. Set against the gin, guns, and glamour of 1920s Chicago, Empire of Sin is the kind of video game that has plenty to offer. Much like Chicago in the 1920s, Empire of Sin is a flawless mix between a tactical shooter and a business simulator. It’s on a genre of its own and it isn’t difficult to see why it has received...

These concerns prevent many from enjoying the security that such a device can provide. Eve Cam claims to...
