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...
An inspired sim made with the Railroad Tycoon 2 engine.

Summary: Imagine that you're the leader of a small South American country. Now you have to attract tourist, keep your citizens happy, set up industry, and help save the rain forest. That is the basis of Tropico. I liked Tropico because of its deepness and graphics. The game is much like an onion.
Summary: Tropico. Some have heralded it as the best strategy game of the year, and some have even said ever. Better than Civilization some say. If you like The Sims or SimCity you will like Tropico. Why? You're an island dictator of a small Latin American island.
Summary: Tropico was a fun and enjoyable expirience for me. Basically this game is about a president(you) governing a small island nation. Graphics- The graphics in this game are a bit 3 years ago, but still are great. There is some slowdown but not enough to ruin the expirience.
Summary: I was a big fan of Sim City and The Sims but Tropico combines them both. In my opinion, Tropico is much better because the Tropicans have minds of their own. They go to work, eat, sleep, and entertain themselves on their own. The animations of the Tropicans going about their business are terrific.
Summary: This game is very good and very fun. You get to be the dictator of a small carribean island. You can play a regular game or a scenario. Just in a regular game, your goal is to build up the economy with and make money either with industries like cigar factories and canning factories, or raw materials...
Summary: Wow...! I rarely have time to play games so when I do, I'm very picky about what games I choose and I tend to shy away from games that I know will draw me in. Well, Tropico is the temptation I couldn't resist. And let me tell you: this has got to be one of the coolest games I've ever played!
Summary: Tropico is a fun game. After playing the rather large demo (180 megs) which contains the tutorial, I decided to buy it. The install was easy, tho contains no options (such as full or partial install) and took up about 870 megs. Gameplay is simple with a fairly well designed control bar.
Summary: This game is so captivating that you can just lose all track of time. The stereotypical setting of this game is funny only in the fact that it is a stereotype and not reality, but let's face it, it's a game. If you ever played Postal, you know what I mean. The music is great, the game is funny.
