Expert Review

  • Conclusion: I have played each of the previous Tropico games on the PC and found them to be quite enjoyable with a good dash of humor to go with the city-building and realpolitik.  My initial delight at being assigned Tropico 4 to review was deflated when I learned that I would be reviewing the XBox 360 version of the game.

Tropico 4: Modern Times

Game Over Online
8 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Tropico 4: Modern Times is the first major add-on for Tropico 4 , which was released about six months ago. As its name suggests, Modern Times takes your Caribbean island out of the 1960s and throws some modern advancements at you. The good news is that these additions -- including 27 buildings and 10 edicts -- are integrated well into the game. The bad news is they make the game even easier than it was before, which was pretty easy.

Family Friendly Gaming was provided this game on the Xbox 360. It contains Tropico 4, and the Modern Times Add-on. It is exceptional to see Kalypso putting this on the Xbox 360.

Tropico 4 – PC Game Review

Armchair General
4 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Tropico is becoming one of the all-time greatest game franchises. I have played every game since the original, and with the exception of Tropico 2 (Run away!) the series has done nothing but improve. Originally created by PopTop Software and released a decade ago, Tropico transported gamers to a Central American-esque island where the player was tasked with developing the island’s economy while balancing numerous political factions.
  • Pros: Fun in the sun. Light-hearted atmosphere belies the hard business of running a small island nation. Players can be as democratic or despotic as they like. Ample humor pokes fun at virtually every political faction.
  • Cons: Music is great, but there needs to be more. Fans of Tropico 3 may have a hard time figuring out whether Tropico 4 is an expansion or a true sequel.

Tropico 4 Review - Rum Not Included

GameZone
19 September 2011
  • Excerpt: Have you ever wanted to rule an island nation? Have you ever wanted to be a dictator, decide which political activists need to “disappear”, run a military state, build a park, or side with communists over the United States? Well, now you can do all of that. I mean, you could have before with Tropico , Tropico 2 , and Tropico 3 , but now there's Tropico 4 ! This is the perfect city simulation game for people that always wanted to oppress their citizens in Sim City .
