  • Excerpt: I was addicted to the game Tropico for a long while when it first came out, so it was natural that I would get to take a first look at Tropico 2: Pirate Cove when it came out. If you are familiar with Tropico then you will be able to hop into Pirate Cove without much transition.

Tropico 2: Pirate Cove

ActionTrip
14 April 2003
  • Conclusion: The bad thing is that at some point, the game is bound to become tedious and there's not much in it that would increase its replayability. In the end, even though Tropico 2 addresses a completely different timeline and culture, it's still has that special zing that remains true to the series.
  • Pros: The new economic system works very well and is less complicated than in the previous Tropico game. There's a great variety of things you can create for your buccaneers. Preserving the overall happiness of your society is a great challenge, especially when you have to run the lives of a bunch of h...
  • Cons: It's quite possible that a great number of gamers will find the experience frustrating because of numerous gameplay restrictions. The maps and the general atmosphere of the tropical island never changes, and that soon becomes tedious. Once again, we see a Tropico game that could do with a more in...

Pocket Lint
16 December 2003
  • Conclusion: While the idea is interesting enough, the game's reliance on lumber before you can really do anything does border on the frustrating and annoying. Even on the very fast setting game setting it took some time to collect lumber with three timber yards and three saw mills so we could start building...
  • Pros: Innovative management
  • Cons: Resource-obsessed; The original’s slow-burning addiction may still have you

Tropico 2: Pirate Cove Review

Eurogamer
29 April 2003
  • Conclusion: All that being said, Tropico 2 isn't without its flaws. There are certain elements of the game which we'd like to have had more control over - such as which workers or pirates to assign to certain jobs, or the division of produce between two factories which use the same raw materials.
