Product Description

Platform: PC

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Concept, limited delivery 11 Mar 2013
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Tropico 4 Gold Edition - having started my journey to totalitarian rule back in Tropico 3 I was excited about the potential of Tropico 4.... perhaps I could conquer local islands and start building a force to be reckoned with? Maybe I could manipulate some smaller states to start working for me in exchange for the copious amounts of money and propaganda at my disposal? Perhaps some whole new facet to the game was going to lift this to the next level....

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars addictive game 23 Feb 2013
By David
Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
A bit tricky to master for the first few minutes as always with this type of game but easy to pick up on the practice session and so addictive once you get going. The island could do with being larger so that you can fit more examples in to practice on like Sim City variations. The game overall is fun and not frustrating so given it the thumbs up for a relaxing time spent on the pc instead of shooting for survival all the time

A Caribbean politician becomes the ruler - 'El Presidente' - of the small country of Tropico, scattered across several islands. He must guide his nation to peace and prosperity, evading rebel coups and placating the feuding superpowers along the way.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Railroad gaming compared to Tropico 3 23 Jan 2013
By T. E
Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I really enjoyed Tropic 3 however it seems that in Tropico 4 they missed some of the key fun of the game.

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??

5.0 out of 5 stars Brillant game! 23 Aug 2013
Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
Honestly one of the best games I've played for a while, quite a relaxed game to play. Brilliant story line on the campaigns that will give you a few chuckles along the way. Great gameplay that doesn't take forever to learn, there are a few things you have to learn along the way like getting solders quick. Great soundtrack and refreshingly no DRM. I've lost too many hours to this game, but all worth it!

This one includes the main game and the expansion pack, so great value.
