I tried to figure out what was wrong with this game. Let me be clear, I have never played it, because the combat being "X-com" style I abandoned it because I HATE that system. Now I don't know exactly what he screwed up, but I remember that one good Mafia game was "the godfather" for ps2, ok it wasn't strategic and another (MMO) that I can't remember the name. But in my opinion with a little work you could get a great strategy game (there is an Italian "pimp manager" game that was very good despite being a free indie, but unfortunately it does very badly on modern machines). What killed EoS? X-com style combat? The internal imbalance in the game about some things? Or problems with the game's creator (Romeo, not PDX)? What don't run on this game?
