Summary: I played the original and it was entertaining. This version is bad. It is hard to build stuff. Not enough room on the islands, they have a lot of unbuildable terrain, and I can't say I like some of the things they say or how they say them. It comes across as racist.
Summary: Got Tropico 3 Gold Edition with high hopes. Enjoyed the previous versions. Installed, entered serial num. Got periodic bug that prevents resuming play when an event pauses the game that occurred twice on first non-tutorial game. Tried downloading patches.
Summary: I received this game as a gift last week, and it hasn't worked properly. Most of the people in the game are pink "F" boxes and there are few details in scenery (textures, objects, trees, etc.). I have the required system specs, and it just doesn't work.
Summary: Plays much like the original Tropico. This version, however, crashes quite frequently and often is unable to load a saved game. And my requests (yes, plural) for support have gone unanswered. So I guess I have a $20 coaster.
Summary: The game was a deal, manual only in english but the game is multilanguage. Beware of product specifications, especially video card. I am not able to run it: my 3 year pc with ATI card is too old.... It's a true pity!
