Summary: Tropico 3 is a very fun,but hard game that combines a little bit of Roller Coaster Tycoon with Railroad Tycoon.Once you start hard to stop playing.Also has extremely good graphics.Some levels are very hard.Does have a custom map generator. Pros:Very addicting game Ecellent graphics Great gameplay Custom map generator Cons:Very hard at times Bottom line:Great game that can be hard at times but still worth buying.
Summary: I really liked the original Tropico, so this was a no-brainer for me. The gameplay is largely a copy of the original. There are slight additions: a building here and there, and most notably a campaign mode where you can play multiple islands which all have scripted interaction. The biggest change is the massive improvement of the graphics. It's more like an add-on to the first game, but that was a good game so this one is too.
Tropico 3 (PC): Democracy or dictatorship...you decide!
8 October 2011
Summary: Previously I used to play a lot of simulation games like the Sims, Sim City, Caesar and more but having fallen out of love of the genre for a period I felt that I would go back and give it a try and found Tropico 3 whilst searching through some websites so thought I would give it a shot and boy am I glad that I did.
Pros: A brilliant simulation game which is one of the best out there
Conclusion: I bought this game on a whim and have been playing it for 5-6 hours everyday over the last 2 weeks. Think Sim City meets the Settlers only with bucket loads of moustaches and berets. You have to balance the economy to provide enough housing for your people (also the right quality of housing), build up your economy, keep a strong enough military in case one of the super powers takes a shine to your little island or there is a rebellion, keep a strong enough police...
Viva La Revolucion, Viva El Presidente, Viva La Tropico!!!!!

Conclusion: Having never heard of Tropico before i bought this game on a leap of faith, and boy, was i rewarded!! You take the role of El Presidente the leader of a small Banana Republic in the Caribbean, you can build the country up into a top tourist destination, an open oil well or a communist utopia all the while trying to keep the island secure from rebels.
Conclusion: Brilliant thats all that has to be said really , its way better then the older Tropico's and they were very good for it's time aswell. This new one is more advanced and the graphics are superb also It still has the old Tropico feel to it :)
Conclusion: Came to this demo from the disappointment of Cities XL and I'm so glad I did. Its funny, upbeat, challenging, with great graphics and very very addictive. As the previous reviewer said you create your own avatar for the game from a selection of strengths and weaknesses, (flatulance anyone?), and that will help and hinder in your campain. This is only the demo so it's very limited, but there seems to also be a sandbox mode, (for those simcity lovers).
Conclusion: For All of you strategic/Tropico lovers out there, this game is right for you. The game includes both Tropico 3 & Tropico 3 Absolute Power Expansion Pack, one of the best games I have ever played, this game is recommended for people who love Tropico & Strategic Games.
