    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 ...

    Just because it keeps the same elements, doesn't mean it's a bad game.

    I'm only reviewing this game to provide another perspective on this matter. Everyone is criticizing this great game for not presenting anything new. I've played every production of Tropico and, ye...

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

    More like Tropico 3: Reloaded

    There's really not much to say here, as everything that was true of Tropico 3 is still true. If you've never played it, read the reviews for it, and consider buying the gold edition, instead of this....

    Absolutely nothing we haven't seen before.

    Rated on September 03, 2011 by Guitarfreak15

    Tropico 4 brings forth a whole new chapter in the tropical paradise, dictator-driven, RTS-like franchise. Unfortunately, it's nothing we haven't seen before. After playing for quite some time, I...

    What is the most annoying is, I have already complaint for many times, the MAP is too small. It was not playing like Simcity 4 or other Town planning game with huge map to develop, but a tiny island w...

    If you played Tropico 3, you've also played Tropico 4.

    Tropico 3 was really addicting. A compilation of crude humor, eye-candy graphics and great game play was a hit. Many, myself included, awaited in anticipation was the Tropico 4 might be like. Turns...

    The best in the series, and nearly impossible to put down.

    Rated on October 28, 2011 by rovaira

    I've played every Tropico on the PC (Hmm.. or wait, was there a Tropico 2? Anyway..) and this game is a blast to play. The demo was good, but the actual game is so much better.. The campaign is rea...
