Developed by the Danish studio Sirius Games, Paradise City is a modern, urban RPG, where the gameplay includes some elements of management and real-time strategy. The game action takes place in a vast city, superbly rendered and bustling with life: Paradise City. It is also one of the most dangerous cities in the world, where various mobs and numerous gangs clash in the struggle for control of the city's districts and resources. In an atmosphere that combines the underworld and the fantastic, the player will be required to infiltrate the gangs of Paradise City for the NSA (National Security Agency). The character the player chooses to incarnate will develop as he claws his way up the echelons of the underworld. His influence on the city, the businesses, the payoffs and the number of confrontations with rival gangs, will enable him to gain experience and become powerful enough to take control of a district and a real gang in order to protect strategic points in his territory. Once he is established in his patch, the player must extend his influence to other parts of Paradise City. To do this, he must manage his new territories in the best way he can, achieve various missions, recruit numerous henchmen, defend himself against attacks from opposing gangs, run his businesses with optimum efficiency and consider carefully which other districts to annex, depending on their resources, their features and also on the skills associated with them. It is at this moment he finds out that the war waged by the gangs for control of the city is masterminded by a strange secret society, at the head of which are a coterie of terrifyingly dangerous and powerful figures that, it seems, no bullet will stop.
