Chicago 1930 is a thrilling real time strategy game taking place during the prohibition. We liked the whole background story to the game, with two alternatives depending on whether you're on the Mafia or Police side. The graphics and levels, abandoned wasteyards, brick factories and basements bring back memories of old gangster movies.
The game play itself is reminiscent of other real time strategy games like Red Alert. Choose your team members wisely based on the mission type and their own profiles, arm them with the right weapons and then guide them through the mission. Although we were disappointed not to find an in-game map view and often got lost as to what weapon was selected, the game offers good playability, with dragging and dropping being the best way to move your team around.
The blend of mobster themes and strategy features make Chicago 1930 a very exciting and original title for Mac.
