Tropico

The Gamers Temple
14 July 2004
  • Excerpt: Date: 7/19/2005 The communists are complaining about the lack of low income housing, while capitalists are unhappy that your island lacks any real industry. You'd like to keep them all happy - especially with an election coming up - but you've been a bit short on funds ever since the rebels attacked your papaya farms. What's the leader of a small Caribbean island to do?

Tropico Will Rule Your PC

GIN
6 August 2001
  • Excerpt: We have all been dictators of a sort in simulation games before, but now is your chance to be a True Dictator. You have just been 'elected' President of Tropico, a small third world island nation. Will you be a kind ruler, someone the people love and respect, or a total despot, hated and feared by the people? Tropico is a welcome change from some of the games I have been playing lately. I knew from the moment I saw the box that I could not wait to play the game.

  • Summary: PopTop Software's Tropico is SimCity with a deep tan and an even deeper Jamaican laugh. It is Caesar with bananas, rum, and a gentle calypso beat. It is RollerCoaster Tycoon with a little mean-spirited junta thrown in for good measure. At its core, Tropico is just another city-building simulation that's reminiscent of many others before it.
  • Pros: N/A

  • Excerpt: Einmal Diktator einer kleinen Bananenrepublik sein! Entscheiden, was gebaut wird, wo die Menschen arbeiten und wie sich die Insel entwickelt. Nebenbei noch das Konto in der Schweiz füllen und den einen oder anderen Aufstand niederschlagen. Und falls es doch zur Revolution kommen sollte, sitzen Sie hoffentlich bereits im richtigen Flieger, um das Land zu verlassen.

Tropico 2 - Die Pirateninsel

Looki.de
30 May 2003
  • Conclusion: Was unterscheidet Tropico 2 von Anno 1503? Nun, Anno sieht teilweise besser aus, hat mehr Gebäude, ist anspruchsvoller und… macht deutlich weniger Spaß als Tropico 2. Wieso? Nun, während Anno im Laufe des Spieles in pure Arbeit ausartet, ist Tropico 2 immer noch überschaubar und verspricht weiterhin gehobenen Spielspaß.

  • Excerpt: Et af de spil jeg har glædet mig mest til i år, er uden tvivl PopTop Softwares strategispil Tropico. Lige siden jeg stiftede bekendtskab med spillet, da det stadig var under udvikling, har jeg fulgt Phil Steinmeyers arbejde med Tropico nøje, og nu er ventetiden endelig forbi. Jeg kan tage uniformsjakken på, tænde en Hoyo de Monterey og sætte mig godt til rette i stolen, for jeg er nu officielt El Presidenté, og mit hemmelige politi sørger for at mit ord er lov.
