Summary: When I bought the game, I figured that it would be a semi- SimCity experience. It wasn't. The user interface is kinda complex and hard to navigate through. Very few things you can do in the gameplay as a "president". Other than that, it's alright.
Summary: This should have been a free down-load upgrade? They 'fixed' a few things from ver. 3, and included Modern Times. Don't recommend it. If you already have version 3, don't waste money on the upgrade. If you are new to Tropico, get this version. Overall, I enjoy Tropico. It's basically a City Builder game where you control the economy to some degree. Your citizens can sometimes become lazy and slow to carry out your commands? And then complain a LOT.
Fun... But crashes to Windows desktop every 20 minutes

Summary: Quick review: - love the look and feel of the game - the game is a very fun sim-city-like island builder game - very addicting (first night up until 1:30 am) Negatives: - Game seems to kick out to Windows Desktop every 20 minutes or so. Was Hoping this does not keep doing this, but it does, and is really annoying. - There is some irritating repetitiveness regarding the tasks for each level.
Summary: The games runs fine on vista no glitches.The drm really stinks I had to get a code from the company that took 2 days.This should not happen when you buy a game.Tropico4 is like tropico3 kind of slow but still a good game.
It's Tropico 3 with UI improvements and new missions

Summary: I'm currently playing the Steam version of this game, I bough it right away because I loved Tropico 3 so much. But who are we kidding here? This is a very minor upgrade to Tropico 3 and I'm not sure if it's worth the price they're asking for it right now. If you already own Tropico 3 I would say wait for a Steam sale in the future to grab this. There are some UI improvements, a fast-build button for buildings and some new buildings all around.
Fun, but lacks depth compared to other city-builders

Summary: A Caribbean politician becomes the ruler - 'El Presidente' - of the small country of Tropico, scattered across several islands. He must guide his nation to peace and prosperity, evading rebel coups and placating the feuding superpowers along the way. Tropico 4 is a city-building simulator, belonging to the same genre as the SimCity series.
Excerpt: Даже не знаю, мне кажется в такие игры-аддоны будут играть только те, кто фанател от предыдущих игр серии Тропико. В настоящее время со стратегиями просто беда, помню года четыре назад RTS было просто огромное количество, и играть было интересно. А сейчас либо какие то хардкорные, либо слишком примитиввные. Всем не угодить, но жанр кажись переживает не лучшие времена.
