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: 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: I have always enjoyed these types of sim games. I remember playing the very first Tropico years ago. This was a great game with good balance and difficulty keeping your citizens happy and making money on your island paradise. My only gripe would be that the campaign was where all the fun was at. I tried playing just free form and I guess without the main goal of the "mission" it just wasn't as fun for me. Maybe I was just done with it.
Summary: What can I say? I love world domination type of games. I was excited to find out that this sort new game was on sale. The day I got it, I played it non stop. It is a very addictive game, so if you have time to kill this is the game for you. I wish you could make more money or maybe its just because I am not good at it.

Summary: Dictators and Demagogues alike will find a lot to enjoy in Tropico 4, especially now that it can be found for some great bargain prices. Tropico 4 is a real time strategy game that puts you on a small island and asks you to make a nation out of it. Some of the scenarios push you in certain directions: make this island a tourist trap, exploit resources from that island, etc.
Summary: This game is a lot of fun, but it is the only game I have ever played on my xbox that froze up. It has done this three times and after looking for the cause of the problem on forums, I see that I am not alone. I hope that someday there is an update that fixes this. Otherwise, the game is worthless to me. Update after a few weeks of use: The game crashes when installed to the hard drive and when playing from the disc. It crashes while playing. It crashes while saving.
Summary: Tropico 4 is a great city building SIM and its awards are well deserved. A word of advice if you are not a big SIM fan there is a chance you will tire of the game with in 2-3 days. As for myself i was well satisfied with the extensive content the game offered. The attention to detail that went into creating the environments is amazing as well as for the AI of the constant commentary from the local radio station.
