While the text-based actions lack any particularly impressive graphics or sound design, the control you have over battles makes this an interesting take on Mafia Wars-like games. This puts a big emphasis on gaining allies, and requires you invest quite a bit of time in it.
The interface is slick and has a suitably black-market atmosphere. We like that you can choose to attack or flee during battles; a feature presumably taken from RPGs like Pokemon. There's a vast array of weapons and upgrades on offer which are updated all the time.
There seem to be some servers issues, and we experienced occasional timeouts. You don't see any action: it's all just static screens. All in all, it's a minor upgrade on Mafia Wars, which was out many years ago.
