Tropico 4 (PC)

 

Tropico 4 is a likeable and engaging sequel that expands on its predecessor but doesn't offer much new depth.

City-building games can be a dry lot. Constant worries over zoning minutiae and travel distances can turn the fun of building a city into a micro-management nightmare. While there are gamers for whom poring over every detail is the fun part, they are a...

A good-looking, accessible, charming city-builder. Not much new here from Tropico 3, but lots of potential for Tropico 5.

Though it has a more cartoonish look that previous iterations of the series, the latest Tropico is filled with the same Caribbean inspired visuals that you remember from previous games.

There aren't a lot of options in the Tropico 4 trainer from Cheat Happens, but the one that is there is probably the most important - Mega Money. In a game like Tropico 4, money can be everything in a game like this. It helps you build more, gain more...

When you hear that a game is a Construction and Management Simulation, you might be hard pressed to figure out how something that sounds so dull can be any fun at all. For others though (who may or may not be masochists) the idea of "playing" a game...

In Tropico 4, you are “El Presidente” the semi-benevolent ruler of an island nation. Well, alright, you're a dictator and that island isn't going to run itself, at least, not if you can get away with it. Essentially, you need to build up your country,...

It's fun being a despot ; Options ; Nice twist on the "god game" genre ; There game doesn't take itself too seriously

Not as much political intrigue and negotiation as I had expected ; Missions sort of blend together and get repetitive

So what’s wrong? Not much. The missions in the campaign are pretty generic and repeat. I would have liked to have seen more historical events play out as well. Tropico 4 isn’t perfect, but it’s fun to play. You have to think, which is always a plus. If...

A real time thief ; Smooth learning curve ; Great game assistance

The occasional glitch

My love for Tropico is rather difficult for me to hide, after blurting it out on a podcast a few months back. So when it came time to review Tropico 4, I was the obvious choice.

Leading a nation is hard, but man is it worth it. Rule with grace or with force, just make sure to stay in control in Tropico 4.

I’m having a blast with Tropico 4, but I know it’s not for everyone. Tracking stats, managing an economy and building a million projects at once keeps me engaged, but without a little patience to learn the interface it’ll overwhelm many a strategy...

Tropico 4 Review

 

A couple of years ago, Haemimont Games and publisher Kalypso put together a pleasant surprise in Tropico 3, a well-made revival of the classic Caribbean Island sim/strategy game, and already they're back with a sequel. No one expected much of this...

The bright, crisp graphics of the Caribbean and the goofy, but lovable sense of humor exhibited throughout Tropico 4 make it instantly appealing, and the impressive depth of a people and city management sim layered on top of tried and true RTS style of...

Hola El Presidente! I see you have returned to rule Tropico once more, after having done so in Tropico 3 and maybe even after extending your rule in Tropico 3: Absolute Power. Because life as El Presidente is hard enough, you will be happy to know that...

I only hope Haemimont will eventually overhaul the now aging core gameplay to make it worth using all of the options at hand, rather than letting players stick with what worked before. Most of all, we really need a revamp of Tropico 2: Pirate Cove,...

Tropico 4 Review

 

Tropico 4 is a likeable and engaging sequel that expands on its predecessor but doesn't offer much new depth.

Fleshes out government operations with ministerial appointments ; Personalized interactions with faction leaders and foreign powers ; Expands the economy to include imports, as well as exports ; Great sense of humor

Very similar to Tropico 3 ; Missions rely on and repeat the same handful of general objectives

Factions play a bigger role than before. Instead of the anonymous rabble-rousing capitalists, commies, environmentalists, nationalists, and the like from the last game, Tropico 4 assigns each group a leader with specific demands. So instead of just...
