Summary: very good game. wish they made some changes. now ive never really played another game in its genre. ill admit its my first. but its complex and very contraversal. you end up jugguling through 3-5 different things at once while trying to achive your original goals. if you like a game that can be frustrating then this be your game. money always seems to be an issue so your constantly trying to figure what buildings you have to build first so that your making a profit.
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: Great game. Lots of fun to play for hours. It always ends up being "just one more building: that turns into hours and hours or play time. Load times could be improved but once in the game there aren't any so I guess it balances out. The two problems with the game is the slowdown that occurs when you have a lot on your island and have the national day active, and the random crashes that happen while playing. Well worth the money and high replay value.
Summary: I remember Tropico 3 had a bit more story around the campaign mode. You were island hopping, different goals on each island. There is no visual of the islands we are hopping, which is missed, it just tied all the goals together better. Gameplay is better. Introduction of disasters is interesting. Seems easier than Tropico 3, I will update when I get more hours into it.
Summary: I love simulation and world building games. This game is great. The it takes time and some foresight to complete scenarios so be prepared for that. The save feature makes that easy enough to manage though.
Summary: This is the best game in the Tropico series of city building games, and adding the modern times expansion makes it even better. Rather than just have you play the role of some unseen entity that builds a city, then sits around wondering what to do next, you play as a real character - El Presidente, who's trying to balance making a powerful nation and building up your private bank account.
