Summary: Tropico 1 is, even 13 years after it's release, really fun to play. I loved this game as a child, and even now the graphic part of the game is still decent, while the gameplay is just epic! The newest version definitely has some more options, but if you buy Tropico 1, you'll still get tons of fun for just a few bucks.
Summary: Uno de los juegos más gamberros que se han creado. Da la vuelta a la idea de los típicos Sims y consiguen llevarte a controlar a un dictador. Vale la pena probar alguna de las nuevas versiones ya que las mecánicas y el espíritu sigue siendo el mismo desde 2001.
A great game for an evening when you just want to relax and kick back a Mojito

Summary: I love this game. It's pretty simple, but it is lots of fun. You can pick your dictator (the background info and perks associated with each one are both enlightening and entertaining) and determine your gameplay strategy (iron fist? Right on! Hippie communist? Très you!). I will say that I wish the missions in this game were better. It would be nice even if they could form some sort of plot.
Summary: Beautiful graphics (as for 2001). Nice and smooth gameplay, good tutorial, you're getting into the game quite fast. If you like games with indirect control this game is really for you. Although economy simulation balance is little bit more on casual side, not on hardcore one. But anyway, game is really funny and definitely should have a try.
Summary: One of the games of my childhood. Really loved to play it back in time and I still play it sometimes, along with Tropico 2. Unfortunately, the newer parts do not have the unique spirit the first part had.
Summary: Amazing, amazing, amazing, and simply amazing. Love playing this game so much. Beautiful graphics, stunning scenery and architecture, interesting story and great musical score. Definitely one of the best "build your city/society" type of tycoon-ish games I've played. Excellent!!
Summary: Most of the time, a lot of conquest games suffer from a lack of "flow" or consistency with the expected theme of the game. Not TROPICO! This game has an intuitive interface, room for multiple strategies, limited map editor, a number of scenarios to choose from, and an interesting approach to starting bonuses which includes dossiers of some known island leaders.
Summary: I really wanted to play this game, but the Amazon Game Downloader and Installer is horrible. My computer thought it was a trojan and I spent 2 hours with the thing trying to get it to work - it didn't and I had to get a refund.
Another game that is impresses early but quickly wears off..

Summary: If you compare the first week that you own Tropico with any other game, it rates high. A creative portrayal of your typical island dictatorship, not many software companies make a strategy/planning game that is also mixed with fun gameplay. (An example is your presidential advisor congratulating you when you have accumulated a large bank account in Switzerland.) The problem with Tropico is that the game quickly becomes boring.
