We played the 2-player variant twice yesterday and are not totally convinced it works really well.
For one thing, the influence coming from the three NPC's doesn't seem to cause much of a threat to Controlling or Majority in the buildings.
Also, when it's time to send your trucks to the speakeasy's, the NPC's have no trucks competing for selling their goods.
In our opinion, this allows a 2-player game to end really prematurely around Round 5 because of fast accumulation of money.
This is what happened to us in both games.
