A victim of the crap shoot known as video game purchasing.

Summary: Boy, when you buy video game software these days you really take your chances, don't you? Sometimes you shell out hard earned money for a game that won't run for anything, even though your computer meets all the minimum requirements stated by the manufacturer.
Summary: I enjoyed a few rounds of Tropico. Then I realized I could use the same cookie-cutter strategy for every scenario, and I lost interest. There's no strategic depth. You can beat every scenario by building factories and importing raw materials for them to process -- you buy materials for $X, process...
Summary: I can't decide whether this expansion deserves a 3 or a 4 star rating, so for the sake of argument I'll give it a 3.5, but Amazon won't allow that, so 3 it is. Edit: A lot of the missions are bugged, maps are re-used during the campaign even with only 12 of them.
Summary: Not much has changed with this new game, but if your trying to decide to get this game or Tropico 3 get this one! It has a few more player friendly additions like the ability to quickly build your construction if you have the money.
Summary: This is not Tropico 4 ... it is the same game as Tropico 3 with the same mechanics and the same graphics. Sure, it's marketed as Tropico 4, but it's realistically Tropico 3 with 20 new missions and some new buildings.
Summary: Don't buy this, instead grab Tropico 3 Gold Edition for half the price. This adds about 15 new buildings, no new leader customization options, minimal rebalancing, no moddability, and it honestly looks uglier than 3 unless you're running on the highest settings.
Summary: I don't know what's going on, but this game is going in reverse. In terms of gameplay, it just gets easier. Whereas the original Tropico was a challenge, this poses none. I set every gameplay setting to hard: the economy: the political stability, the island type. And nothing happened.
