Good start, bad end

V. Leah-Martin, Amazon

  • Summary: Ok, if you're thinking of buying this game I would not recommend it uness you like managing things. This game has a few good pros and some really bad cons. For example the graphics in the game are really detailed, but their stale and lifeless.

Not bad, but not great either

  • Summary: You are el Presidente, dictator of a small island nation. You have your faults your strengths, and an island to govern. Better get started. I like Tropico, it's a different approach on a city building game.

Too challanging for me to get into

  • Summary: I am a lover of sim games. My favorite sim game is Ceasar. I played about 7 or 8 levels before I got bored. Roller Coaster Tycoon is another good one. It is challanging and has a lot of different scenarios and rides. One of the cool things about Tropico is its premise.

Average

  • Summary: I've had this game for a while. I was very excited about the premise, being a dictator and all. I'm a big fan of the Civ-style godgames. But honestly. This game is boring. Sure the graphics are good. The concepts are interesting. You have a lot of control over what kind of dictator you'd be, etc.

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.

Disappointing

  • Summary: I was one of many people who could hardly wait for this game to come out. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed in Tropico. The graphics are wonderful and there are some interesting pieces to this game; however, the game just did not keep my attention.

Not a "bad" game, but not fun enough either.

  • Summary: Okay I waited a long time for Tropico to come out and overall I've been a little dissapointed with it. The game is fairly complex which is fine, but the game manual is lacking in lots of hard data required to base good game decisions on.

Tropico 2 : La Baie des Pirates

  • Summary: Assez sympa dans l'ensemble, permet de réaliser des missions et de passer au fur et à mesure des niveau de maitrise du jeu. Un brin décalé, Tropico nous immerge dans un mode de pirates et permet de changer d'ambiance.

Sie sind der Diktator!!!

  • Excerpt: Wollten sie schon einmal ihre eigene Insel beeherschen und Ausbauen? Dann ist Tropico das richtige für sie. Aber Vorsicht, seien sie vor Aufstänen oder einem Punsch auf der Hut. Denn man kann schnell unbeliebt werden, wenn man nicht für die Richtige Unterhaltung oder für genügend Nahrung sorgt.
  • Pros: Günstiger Preis, lange Spiellust,
  • Cons: veraltete Grafik
