Summary: For me, the problem with this game is that there seems to be a terrible lag between being notified that something is wrong on your island, and the amount of time it takes to remediate that problem. User error and management may be the issue, but the more I tried to build an island, the more frustrated I got with being unable to create a stable society. Seems I was always chasing a problem rather than being able to look ahead. And the game pace is a bit slow.
Summary: Not a bad game, but I'm used to the CIV franchise and this doesn't really cut it. Not a bad game but the learning curve seems higher than I would like. Maybe it's me and I need to spend more time on the game? Trouble is, I don't have a lot of time and just wanted something to relax and play. I guess it took too much time to learn... played it a couple of times, that is it.
Summary: I like this game but it gets pretty boring after awhile when playing it. After you did all of the campaign, all I can do now is just play a sandbox game just to kill time. But I like it over all.
Summary: I'd played this game in the past and it's as fun as I remember it. I bought the download because I missed it so much. You get free reign to be any kind of dictator you want. I like the ability to create a dictator, choose an island, and to customize how buildings and business are run. It's like a political Sims-type game, with more control than the Civilization games but less than actual Sims or Sim City. That said, this game plays ONLY on full screen.
Summary: Tropico is: Caesar/Pharoah/Cleopatra with better graphics and interaction, Sim City with better gameplay, Age of Empires/Crusaders without the battles and interesting conflicts, Zoo Tycoon with political factions to keep happy instead of animals. I'd rate the first time playing Tropico at 4.5 stars. My primary problem is, after playing through 10 scenarios I've concluded that the first 4 hours of play through each scenario is almost exactly the same.
Summary: unfortunately i cannot give this item a fair review since this pc could not play it. i do like the instant download alot saves time and money...what i did like is that since i was not able to play it i got the tropico reloaded with tropico 2 for 6.99 and it works fine :) i believe tropico 3 is probably alot of fun!
Summary: I've loved Tropico for a long time, and I was very excited to see this come out. I got it for my birthday, and I've been playing it for months. There's a lot to enjoy.. Roads, the radio station, wind turbines, everything new is fun, and everything old has a new shine on it. It only suffers from the same thing old Tropico did: waiting around.
