How is this game similar and different from Omerta?
I happen to like Omerta. The Music, the management system, and the story. All very good. The actual fighting mechanics could use a little work. What i am asking is how do these things compare? Also, i heard the music is trash. Can you manually put your own songs in?

They are completely different games. This is more of a city builder with resources and production management, while Omerta is a Turn-Based Strategy with some management in it.

The music is fine, but it's just the same track on repeat, so it gets old after a bit. I usually just play my own music with an external media player.

I have a ton of games i havent played, the Tropico series being one of them, ive played the begining bit but thats as far as ive got, same for Omerta, i can however recommend Tropico, its more of a citybuilder then anything else, Omerta is completely different, id say give it a go.....

But Tropico isnt so Buggy as Omerta

I think both games are great, completely different though. Tropico 4 is like a rehash of tropico 3 using the same engine and assets, just changing and adding a lot. I recommend the whole tropico series.

You can't even compare the two. Omerta is a turn-based strategy. With an incredibly weak lemonade stand economic system.

It's so simplistic that it can only be considered elementary.

Tropico is more like a poor man's Anno.

It's an economic simulation game. But not a very challenging one.

It's a fun game. Until you figure out how easy it really is.

Omerta...that game should be locked up in someone's toy chest. The key thrown away.

It's name never mentioned again.

The Music is not on repeat, there is about a 10 song playlist that plays on repeat i suppose, but there is some truly catchy tunes here.

If you liked the Omerta overworld game you will love this, it is done in the same style, but so much better, and there is so much more to do.

Music's not bad actually.
But after awhile I can even get tired of my own favorite music collection if it repeats over and over, even on shuffle.

What I'd like to see is a DLC now and then with 5-10 new songs added to the playlist. Caribbean themed but maybe a few with a humorous twist for the Tropico pseudo-Caribbean style of this game.
