    Tropico 4 primarily offers technological upgrades, but is still quite fun and addictive. Get the expansion!

    The Tropico series gives us the chance to enjoy the experience of playing a Latin American dictator/revolutionary in a Space Management environment. Anyone familiar with the city-building series from Sierra (including Ca... Read Full Review

    Build the perfect paradise, or make millions with industry.

    Tropico 4 was a game that I very nearly missed having played the previous game's demo and not liking it one bit. Luckily a friend recommended this and I gave the demo a go and loved it, so I got the Gold edition which co... Read Full Review

    Enjoyable, but nothing special

    Modern Times feels more like an add-on than a full expansion. Yes there's a new campaign, but there's really nothing to differentiate it from Tropico 4's. If you liked Tropico 4 you'll enjoy this well enough, you just wo... Read Full Review

    Same old..... same old really

    Seems a shame, as Gamespot review states it's very similar to Tropico 3. In my eyes it's the same game, rebranded and offering "expansion packs" to make the game more of a game. Still has the gift of being entertaining, ... Read Full Review

    Great but has bugs!

    Other than the fact that, even after clearing the cache on the drive and loading any updates...Tropico seems to stop loading my games after I reach 500 in population. The game is very addictive. It SIMCITY in the middle... Read Full Review

    Eleven years ago Pop top software released Tropico, a banana republic simulator for the PC, a game where you play El Presidente, a lovable dictator with a beard so big it looked like he'd been using it to shelter a small... Read Full Review

    City building jewel.

    This game is presently the best city building game on the market. Fun story, original set up, great graphics, well balanced game play. It does have a few corks. For example the starting tactic seems to be pretty stan... Read Full Review
