Tropico 3 – PC Game Review

Armchair General
14 January 2011
  • Excerpt: The first Tropico launched back in April 2001, followed closely by Tropico 2: Pirate Cove in April 2003. I don’t remember much media hoopla over them from back then, so I passed them by. (The original was great, and Tropico 3 is an update of the original. Pirate Cove was terrible – Ed.

  • Summary: Remember the two competing camps of city-builders, back from the Cities XL review? No? Well, I have a few minutes so you can go back and review. Back already? Oh good.

Review: Tropico 3 (PC)

Diehard GameFAN
4 December 2009
  • Summary: Tropico 3 is a fun city buiding/dictator sim that, for the price, will last you longer than most other games on the market. If you are new to the genre this might not be the best title to start with; at the very least, newcomers should start with the sandbox mode.
