Summary: I bought this game after watching a friend play it for a while, Having played some SimCity before, I felt I might enjoy it; liked the idea of SimCity+Dictatorship. The game is themed to reflect what 1950s Cuba might be like if a young dictator recently took over. You must balance your relationship with the worlds super powers to ensure foriegn aide and trade deals and maintain a good relationship with your people; protests and Rebel attacks in your city will happen if...
Summary: Just like the game I played on the computer so many years ago! It was my favorite game and I was unaware they even made them for a game system. I just got an Xbox 360 a few weeks ago. I saw this game and HAD to order it (I decided to bypass Tropico 3 as there appeared to be a few issues with it, according to reviews I read).
Summary: The game is not suited for play by someone who has not played the earlier versions of Tropico. There are no instructions or screens to explain how to use the controller. If you have previously played a version, you would know how to move or place or pick up items. If not, you haven't got a clue. That was me! I was looking for a "build" game, a Sims type game, and this would have been great. But, if you can't use the controller, it isn't worth anything.
Summary: I’ve been a Tropico fan since the first game and have enjoyed it and Tropico 2 on the computer. I bought the Xbox 360 over the Playstation 3 in part because of this game. Unfortunately that excitement didn’t last long as I soon discovered that after I played one island for a few hours I wouldn’t be able to save and load it later. After a couple of hundred people (usually about 250) the Xbox freezes up when it tries to reload the save.
Summary: Having previously tried, and failed, to get into SimCity I decided to pick up Tropico 4 at a bargain price and thoroughly enjoyed its tongue in cheek approach to the city building genre. As with its predecessors the game puts you in charge of running a tropical island, either in the open sandbox mode or the 30 mission campaign.
