Here is the reply:
Some customers are experiencing issues when trying to load particular savegames of lengthy playsessions but unfortunately, we were unable to reliably reproduce the problem ourselves.
The error should typically affect specific savegames, keeping your overall campaign progress and player statistics intact. You can always restart previously unlocked campaign missions from the "New Game" option in the game's main menu.
The error is most likely caused by the console hardware struggling to process the ammount of data and variables that savegames with big cities and a large population contain.
The only solution to this problem would be to drastically simplify the game resulting in more player limitations, lower population numbers, smaller islands and fewer options to build and shape your cities.
Kalypso Media wishes to apologize for the inconvenience caused and thank you for the ongoing support.

I should point out I did not have lengthy play sessions nor did I have a big world and I was just starting out.
- Campaign mode follows a storyline rather than random missions - less danger of getting bored halfway through the mode since it's a pretty insane story. You also have to make more interactive decisions that correspond with the story - far better than the same old questions you always get asked in T3!
- You have more choices to make (e.g creating your own ministry, changing your import threshold) which will be fun to mess around with for life-long fans of the series. There are also a bunch more edicts too!
- Better graphics but not in any outstanding way, just a slight improvement
- Modern times campaign mode - also follows a different storyline but with the Modern Times Buildings included
- The Modern times buildings when unlocked replace the old style buildings (e.g apartment blocks will get replaced with Modern counterparts) - these are always improvements from the previous ones. Only bug-bear is you don't have the choice between the two when unlocked. Generally in campaign mode (unless otherwise stated), when you start a new chapter the building types will reset and you will have to unlock them again during gameplay (which just happens automatically after enough time has passed).
- Sandbox mode is enjoyable as ever, when you turn 'on' modern times buildings, the game expects you to unlock them, again when enough time has passed. I personally bypass this with a cheat because i'm impatient but you'll not be able to collect achievements in cheat mode.
Challenges are similar to Tropico 3s; mostly easy-medium level of difficulty with a couple of really tricky ones
Some Modern times buildings examples are: Shopping Malls, Supermarkets, Diamond Cathedral, Rollercoaster, Aqua Park, Stock Exchange, Bio Farms, Nuclear Power Plant, Wind Turbines, Solar Power Plants, Aerodrome, Rehab Clinic, 7 Star Hotel & Car/Electronic/Weapons Factories to name a few. Industry and Tourism become a lot more fun with the new additions. You also have the addition of a Fire station, Grade School, Horticultural Center and Academy of Science!
I love this game; my only harsh criticism is that Tropico DLC is AWFUL - seriously guys, is it too much to ask for new missions/buildings now and again?
It's easy to think that when you lose the mouse you lose the chance to play these sort of games, but Tropico like Civilization Revolution actually pulls it off with bells on. Loads of fact menus to access, you can pinpoint individuals on the island to find out what they feel and are up to, nice zoom in and out. Once you get used to it you are whizzing over the island, pulling up menus without a thought - JUST how it should be.
And to call it 'simple' is wrong as it can get very deep in terms if what you are doing, but overall the game is simple to play, just hard to master. Early levels have you winning elections, making money for your Swiss bank account and improving tourism - and that is how it works on one part of the game, technically 'missions'.
You can forgo all that though for a sandbox mode, but all in all this is a terrific game for the console owner wanting to dip their toes into this genre of game.
It won't convert everyone. But for the current price of under £15 it is hard to not justify adding this to your collection.
