Tropico 4

 

OK, all you budding fascists, Tea Partiers, and future middle managers of corporate America: looking for a quick place to out your inner dictator? Well, look no further, we got all you need right here. Tropico 4 lets you play from a list of real-life...

Super addictive ; New upgrades, changes and tasks

The game feels more like an upgrade than a true sequel ; The music kinda sucks this time. Where Tropico 3 had an excellent soundtrack, this sounds like the same song playing over and over, and it’s not even a good one ; You must follow the campaigns in...

Tropico 4 is a nice follow-up to Tropico 3. While the game adds several features to the previous game, it doesn’t feel like a true sequel but more of an upgrade - a more honest naming convention would have this game released as Tropico 3.5. Regardless,...

Welcome back to paradise. No time for relaxing or sunning yourself though, as there is plenty of work to be done to turn this crackpot nation into a world beater. You may have to grease a few palms, do a few dodgy deals and generally get up to no good,...

Tropico 4 is a well-crafted update that is subtly better in almost every respect, including more helpful guidance to total newcomers and a steady stream of in-game mini-missions to keep things interesting. That pesky save bug makes an unwelcome return...

Tropico 4 Review (Xbox 360)

 

It isn't easy being an all-powerful dictator. It may seem that that the world's tyrannical rulers enjoy a life of luxury and unbridled power, but Tropico 4 teaches us that managing the affairs of a banana republic (of the kind that's not a clothing...

We were disappointed, however, by the Tropico series’ continuing lack of any multiplayer components. It’s true that the core gameplay would need to be adapted somewhat to make for a fun multplayer experience, but we can imagine that with a few tweaks...

Forget Aruba, Jamaica, Bermuda, and Kokomo. Tropico is where any strategy fan will want to go.

Deep simulation gameplay constantly gives you new challenges to overcome; wonderful-looking environments; fun voice-acting and music

Clunky controls; tutorial does its best to make you stop playing the game before you give it a chance; occasional framerate issues

Addictive gameplay ; Adapted to the console well

Gamepad just isn’t as good as KB/M

Making a game like Tropico 4 for a console has always been a tricky job, especially when the PC version is held in such high esteem. One of the main issues is how to take a game that relies so heavily on keyboard & mouse and put it on a console that...

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...

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

 

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to run your very own banana republic? While it is pretty easy to rig elections, eliminate government protesters and line your own pocket with the help of a Swiss bank account, it is a lot more difficult to...

I found Tropico 4 to be a comically pleasing city-builder/economic/geo-political simulator. The graphics are quite good even though most computers will be able to support it on its basic settings. An Xbox 360 version of the game is available, but I...

Tropico 4 Review

 

Tropico 4 is a bit like SimCity in paradise. A paradise ruled by a maniacal dictator, that is.

The bottom line: if you have never experienced a Tropico game before, Tropico 4 is simply the best the series has to offer. If you've been playing the series since it first began, Tropico 4 has refined its formula nearly to perfection, and is worth...

Tropico 4- Xbox 360

 

The same issues that people took with the PC version of Tropico 4 remain here, [...] with the graphical leap over the previous game small, too many samey career missions and a sandbox mode that struggles to remain interesting after a short period, but...
