Tropico 4: Gold Edition

Video Game Generation
12 November 2013
  • 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.

Tropico 4: Modern Times

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: After Haemimont rejuvenated the Tropico series with Tropico 3 and its Absolute Power expansion, Tropico 4 ended up being another great city builder, if not a huge leap forward for the series.

Because life as El Presidente is hard enough, you will be happy to know that the island nation will take more or less the...

Tropico 4 review

GamesRadar
24 June 2012
  • 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

(Xbox 360 Review) Tropico 4: Modern Times

The Entertainment Depot
4 May 2012
  • 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.

  • Pros: + Lengthy, comical campaign, + More building options, + New mission parameters
  • Cons: Pointless new game mechanic, Too pricey

Tropico 4

Video Game Generation
11 January 2012
  • Summary: Tropico 4 is a nice follow-up to Tropico 3 . 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 Tropico 3.5.
  • 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...
