By rights, this review should have been written from within the safe confines of a mental institution, for never as your reviewer been closer to eating his own head in a state of maddened frustration than after two hours in the vile company of this pseudo-gangster yam , Crime Does Not Pay.
So how does it work? Well, you are the head of a criminal organization – the game is 'endorsed by the Mafia' it says on the box – and it's your job to kill your enemies (i.e. Just about everyone else in the game), make pots of money and finally become mayor of a major American city. This plot, desperately weedy as it is, takes you through a series of inane arcade sequences and unworkable 'pick objects up and use them' scenes. Avoid.
