  • 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.

Good start, bad end

  • 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.

  • 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.

Great idea but not well developed

  • Summary: When I first looked at Tropico I thought, GREAT!, something that has strategy and quite a comical theme. Also when I first played it I thought it was brilliant, however after the thrill had worn off I found it to be a tad repetative and not the most brilliantly developed game ever.

Republica Banana Tropico

Amazon
29 July 2001
  • Summary: Welcome to the Island paradise of Tropico. Real-Time-Presidente of a small republic in tropical waters. Interesting scenario and a different kind of RTS. It's nice to watch but a bit boring to play in the long run. More Special evens would have been great!
