Summary: Look, despite its disturbing implications, I enjoy the series. It’s more stimulating and engaging to play power politics than to worry about whether your Sim is going to bang the next door neighbor, so there you go. That said, they pulled a bit of a fast one here.
Pros: Extremely addictive gameplay., 20 missions from, Tropico 4,, about a dozen from, Modern Times, . You’ll be busy for a bit., New add-ons from the Modern Times Expansion Pack bring a new level of fun to the game.
Cons: None of the DLC that was released is included, and in fact was released on the same day, making this a Triple Dip slap in the face.
Excerpt: Maxis turns 25 years old next year and one of their most influential titles of all time SimCity is just a year younger. That’s give you an idea just how long city sims have been around, the title that put them on the map was sharing computers with mostly educational games such as Oregon Trails.
Excerpt: “The ability to control time could be very useful,” says your fictional Presidente after one of Tropico 4's optional tutorials. Really, that sums up the game pretty well. You're an island dictator who's capable of, well, pretty much whatever he damn well pleases.
Pros: Far more accessible than previous Tropico games, Plenty of freedom, You can be a complete and total bastard – and win
Cons: Tech trees and faction management lack depth, Often a bit too easy, Not a huge upgrade from Tropico 3
Summary: I don’t know if other players will experience the same glitches I did, or if I’m just the exception, but either way, I still feel as though the good outweighs the bad in Modern Times . The DLC is over half the length of the base game, making it an excellent value for the price.
Excerpt: El Presidente is back and better than ever, as Tropico 4 has landed. As a big fan of the Tropico series, I couldn’t wait to check out this game and it delivers on all fronts. While games of this kind are typically PC oriented, Tropico 4 is rock solid on consoles, just as Tropico 3 was.
Excerpt: Tropico 4 is the most cerebral game this reviewer has ever played. This game requires thought, patience, and a lot of finesse. The player takes on the role of El Presidente. He is the ruler of a small poor island. Your goal is to change that.
Summary: Tropico 4
is a nice follow-up to
. While the game adds several features to the previous game, it doesn’t feel like a true sequel but more of an upgrade - a more honest naming convention would have this game released as
Pros: Super addictive, New upgrades, changes and tasks
Cons: The game feels more like an upgrade than a true sequel, The music kinda sucks this time. Where, Tropico 3, had an excellent soundtrack, this sounds like the same song playing over and over, and it’s not even a good one., You must follow the campaigns in a certain order. No jumping around like i...
Conclusion: If you found T3 a chore then you would probably be best avoiding this one, but if like me you ached for more after completing it jump on board for some more El Presidente. (Please be kind, this is my first ever review, I have tried to cover all the bases, if you can see a blatant mistake or have a...
