Summary: Tropico is hard, i didn't know how to export products for a week and i still am not quite sure. After i got the hang of it its kind of boring and really hard with rebels even though i'm nice and it just is almost impossible to do great on the game. But now the biggest thing is after i save my game, i try to load it and the screen freezes. I haven't been able to load any saved games!
Summary: This is a great game with a huge level of detail and what should be HOURS of playability. The problem arises when you attempt to load a save when your population is over 300 or so residents on the island. The game will hang on the load screen every time. The developer is well aware of this issue and has done nothing to address it. Check out the developer's forum on their website and you'll see that they acknowledge the issue..
Summary: It is a game that plays over a period of years, so it takes a while to finish......but it is not possible, because the game will not load after you have saved it a few times. We have tried numerous times to not only load, but start over to have the same thing happen again and again. I would not recommend this game.
Summary: This game will freeze when you are deep into a campaign and then the saved content will be corrupted. The game is fun. I would rate it a full 4 stars if it did not freeze and require me to turn off my Xbox and lose all my progress. I have installed all updates that are available for the Xbox (as of October 26, 2012), yet it still freezes. One hint to everyone: manually save often and you can at least recover from this annoying bug.
Summary: There are no noticeable improvements to the franchise in this latest installation. The play is fun as always but like the review sites say, it gets repetitious and old very fast. The game would be mediocre if not for a stupid, overly agressive method of verification used in the game.
Summary: EDIT: Based on the following review, I have received correspondance from Kalypso with regards to the issue: Some customers are experiencing issues when trying to load particular savegames of lengthy playsessions but unfortunately, we were unable to reliably reproduce the problem ourselves. The error should typically affect specific savegames, keeping your overall campaign progress and player statistics intact.
