  • Excerpt: "...cruisin' for treasure! Cheesy intro aside, Tropico 2 is almost completely serious, apart from the fairly comical style it's as close to being a pirate ruler you'll get, unless of course you resurrect the beastly bandits from their watery graves, round them up and then storm the houses of parliament! Tropico 2 takes the shape of a Strategy-management game, where you'll have to please the pirates in every way you can, from providing gambling to ...
  • Pros: nice quality of art, somewhat addictive
  • Cons: music is sure to drive you potty when sustained

expansion pack makes the original near perfect.

  • Excerpt: "Tropico Paradise Island is an expansion pack for the original Tropico game, where you act as the president of a tropical island, making the decisions what to build, grow and produce, and decide policies such as prohibition and doubling the food available to your people. My favourite feature of this game is just how many options there are. You can play a random scenario or a preset one, in either total sandbox (can’t go wrong) mode, or with varying ...
  • Pros: Great new features give more variation
  • Cons: Building work still slow

If you liked Tropico I RUN Don't walk to buy this one

  • Summary: How can anyone like Tropico I over Tropico II? Well in Tropico I you managed EVERY aspect of your citizens' lives. Each of them needed a house(Tenements would not do the job at higher difficulty levels) a job, access to religious facilities, healthcare, entertainment, liberty, safety,food etc. etc. Problem was the economy did not expand properly. Your people demand ever increasing wages but your economy cannot be ever increasing.

A typical simulation

  • Summary: The game might seem fun at first but then after a while it gets old. All you have to do is build and wait. You can set ships on sail, however, but you don't have control of them and you don't even get to see them. So if your not a simulation fan skip this.

Fun but gets old

  • Summary: When I bought this game I was like cool its a game about a pirate controlling an island. Its got ok graphics. I never played the original Tropico so I couldn't tell you the differences. I played the game for about 5 hours. The only exciting part I found was sending the ships out to raid areas (when i played there was only one place to raid) Funny thing is they would never run out of people or be smart enought to move to another place (means not realistic).

  • Excerpt: "...saying that I should try Tropico 2. The original Tropico was purchased for me as a gift and before this I didn’t even know such a game existed, let alone a second version of it! But after realising there was a sequel I began to drop some very unsubtle hints about wanting it for Xmas, and lo and behold, Christmas Day came and saw me become the proud owner of my very own copy of Tropico 2 – Pirates Cove. WHAT IS IT? Just like its predecessor, Tropico ...
  • Pros: Deeply involving, so much happening you'll never get bored
  • Cons: Can be frustrating at times, pirates are very hard to please
