Summary: This game is a blast, and I"ve spent many hours wasting my time enjoying it! :) It has some nice options, and is a bit different than other city buiding games, so if you like the genre (which I do), this is a good / must have!
Summary: I enjoyed playing this game when I had my Xbox 360. When I found out Tropico 5 is in the work. I wanted to play through Trpoico 4 again. It works well on Windows 8. Graphics are even better on my PC than the Xbox 360.
Summary: This is pretty much an update to Tropico 3. It plays about the same but you have more to work with. Seems a bit easier to keep the peasants happy. One difference is (at least so far...maybe it gets better) that these islands don't look as good as Tropico 3. When playing 3, I was constantly telling my wife that I'd like to actually visit the island I was playing...not the same with 4. Not a fan of having to create an online account to play the game though.
Summary: I've been playing Tropico games since high school and while Tropico 4 is not nearly as challenging as the first game in the series it is still a fantastic city builder/strategy game that most people who enjoy RTS and city planning will be able to dump a lot of time into. I also really liked Tropico 4's expansion, Modern Times, which is included in the Gold Edition.
Summary: I bought this for my husband's birthday and he loves to play it. You can choose what you want your dictator to look like and you can choose if you want to be a good dictator or a bad one. It is interesting to read the quotes of actual dictators. If you are a bad dictator you may become an exile if you are a good dictator you can win your election you can continue. He seems to have a lot of fun playing.
