  • 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.

  • 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!!

  • Excerpt: "I had never heard of this game until i saw it on the shelves of Asda, it was only £5 and it seemed like it could be quite a laugh. I wasn't disappointed.

You can decide whether to create a booming economy through factories or logging camps, or create a tourists' paradise. There are different types of terrain ...
