Tropico 4 Gold Edition is the ultimate city building experience including Tropico 4 and the ‘Modern Times’ expansion. As the president of a tiny Caribbean island, it’s up to you to lead your country to greatness! Will you be a benevolent and tolerant leader, or a power-mad dictator? Will your economy rely on tourism, farming, big business or cheap sweatshops? The decisions you make will shape the future of your island, and more importantly, the size of your off-shore bank account. However, time waits for no-one, not even El Presidente. The world is changing and Tropico is moving up with the times: geographical powers rise and fall and the world market is dominated by new players with new demands and offers – and you, as El Presidente, face a whole new set of challenges. If you are to triumph over your naysayers you will need to gain as much support from your people as possible – whether with the carrot or the stick is your choice.

The answer to all of this is no. Essentially, if you have Tropico 3 and were like me looking for something to build on the existing game you'll be disappointed. For me, this is a bit of a money grab of a game. Sure there are some new features but nothing wildly different from 3.
Let's be clear though, I love the concept, I really want to take over the populace of wherever I am by any means whether they be devious, strong arm or friendly... yeah, right! It's always one of the first two. The point being, you can choose, so for those new to Tropico - I would say buy it, buy it now! Equally, buy Tropico 3. It's not a whole load different and probably a bit cheaper.
My issue with Tropico has always been development, so I control an island and I have in some way duped my populace into being happy or don't care that they aren't and have total control of their lives *pause for evil laugh*. What next? Go to another island and do it again. Sure the scenarios are all a bit different but I want to be able to go further. Sure there are some new buildings and amusing options but really this game isn't evolving and if it continues as it is will be a dead franchise before long. Shame, as I say, excellent concept but limited execution and delivery.
In short, buy this if you don't have 3. If you do, save your money.
Tropico 4 is a city-building simulator, belonging to the same genre as the SimCity series. The twist of this game is that the setting is the Caribbean and the emphasis is on building relatively small cities based around industry and tourism, with the player also having to balance the needs of both the people, foreign powers and a number of internal factions to achieve success.
Whilst there are various scenario and sandbox modes, the core of the game is the campaign. This is a story-driven narrative that unfolds across 20 scenarios (although, rather lazily, there are only 10 maps: each map is used twice, but in most cases is supposed to be a different island) and acts as an extended tutorial: the very brief actual tutorial isn't much help, but the missions expand on the concepts from the tutorials quite nicely. In most cases, the game unfolds the same way: you start off with a palace and several other buildings and have to build up both your population (by allowing large-scale immigration and building homes for the newcomers) and your sources of revenue (by building mines, plantations, farms and tourist facilities). However, you also have to keep the population happy by building healthcare, religious, entertainment and education facilities, and you also have to keep the various factions happy. The capitalists will be satisfied if you build mines across the entire island, but the resulting pollution will annoy the environmentalists.Read more ›
Example: In tropico 3 you could ban a faction. Try and run your island with no Religious groups etc. Or focus on a pure communist state and for real fun keep everyone living in very basic conditions while you reap as much profit as possible.
In Tropico 4 some of these functions have been removed, building automatically upgrade to new versions stopping you from being able to place the older ones and the whole way the game plays seems to be on rails. No matter what you do your island will always look the same as the previous times you played it.
Tropico was a great sandbox game, now it seems to be more about a sim city adventure, completing quests and ending up at the same finish each time.
Can we have more Sandbox please on Tropico 5??
A great game

I am enjoying this game, even though each scenario is actually quite repetitive. My only real gripe is that it crashes all the time, which gets very irritating. Read morePublished 1 month ago by J. A. Prevel

Love this game, its really silly and the music is fab. I orginally had a trial of tropico 3 (from steam) and loved it, I bought no 4 even though no. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Rachael Eccles Hypnosis
Quite an addictive game, but too limited. You do the same things repeatedly, but it lacks the open gameplay and vast possibilities of, say, Simcity 4. Read morePublished 7 months ago by B. Cole
