The first i heard of this game was a week ago when i decided not to risk simcity 5, with everything in hand as far as information went, that choice was made when i ran across tropico 4. the game has been completely anonymous including its predecessor titles.
i have played the game straight away and its pretty easy to make millions within 30 game years and serve the needs under your command, once you understand the limits, its pretty easy to play. i found the campaign repetitive because its always the same, but the same with life, no arguement there. So when you combine it with listening the same few tracks the game has after a while it gets boring quite quickly, so while the game is mostly bug free and well constructed it lacks in the playability factor by some margin. i mean stack it again other big titles which can occupy your attention for hours and days and possibly months, tropico 4 is like dead weight in comparison.
But not is all bad, the comical nature of the storyline and random events from some of the characters that inform you of events, they can be very funny and graphics do not look too bad all things considered.
