I rarely write reviews, however I think Tropico 4 well deserved one. I've played this series since Tropico 2 and have been a fan of this series with many hours of game play. When Tropico 3 came out, it really blew me away. Graphics were insanely better than the predecessor and the game was more complex, yet still easy to understand and play. I held off on buying Tropico 4 til this past black Friday and it seems to be a mistake to do so for so long!

Yes the game play and graphics engine is pretty much the game as Tropico 3, however they made alot of positive changes to the game that made it much more enjoyable. More foreign powers, larger islands, new disasters, many minor new features such as quick rebuild that just solved alot of the pain in the **** stuff you had to deal with in Tropico 3. I admit though that I understand why alot of people didn't like the original Tropico 4 release and that was because there really wasn't enough major changes to really justify going out and spending 50 bucks at the time for the game. Its was would of made my review 3.5 stars. However the major addition is the Modern Times game added onto it. Many new buildings such as Bio Farms, Borehole mines, City parks, Telecom building, water treatment plants are only just the slight few to list. The best new building is the Metro Station. No more massive traffic jams when your island reaches large populations. Instead your people go to the nearest Metro Station and pop out to their destination almost instantly.

All of the new buildings pop up over the 50 year timeline and it makes the game very enjoyable to play over the entire 50 year period. In addition a new list of Edicts and your very own council of minsters.

I have been playing Tropico since 1.
This is by far the best Tropico out there.
Tropico 4 looks like Tropico 3, with slightly better graphics, a few better game features that make the game more fun, and seems a bit more 'polished' than 3.
The Modern Times expansion makes the game ALOT better in my opinion. Yes there are some new buildings that make things a little too easy (to make money, give your people jobs, etc..) but overall it makes a great game better.
If you like city building simulation games and like controlling things like an economy, people (limited capability), and trying to keep factions/governments happy then this is the game for you.
The only negatives I have seen are the following:

1. Graphics requirements - I had an old laptop (Dell e1505) that has Intel 945 graphics that would not play this game. Make sure your computer meets the minimum specifications for this game. Easy way to test it if you have any doubts is download and run the demo. If it runs, your computer is fine. This was not a big deal for me since I have it on my desktop computer running fine.

2. Roads - This has always been a negative in Tropico games. IF you have any intersections on your island, you will run into traffic jams at some point in your game, period. The way around this is to curve all your roads so that traffic can go where you need it to whiel also avoiding having intersections. This means your island will either be unrealistic (no intersections) and efficient OR realistic (intersections) and traffic jams which will slowly eat away at your efficiency. The only way I could see the game developers avoiding this problem would be to make traffic ignore any intersections and treat it as a free to drive straight through the intersection type problem.

This game is something out of the norm, and it's all the better for it.

If you like SimCity or The Sims, this will give you some twists and turns that should increase your fun. After all, who doesn't dream of running their own tropical island? There's not a little guy saying "De plane, de plane," but there are lots of pop culture references and the dialogue is actually quite funny.

I've not played the earlier versions of Tropico, nor have I gone on to Tropico 5, but this game absolutely fulfilled my expectations. The learning curve can be a little steep if you don't carefully go through the tutorials, and the game itself is challenging, so you can expect a lot of hours of replay.

Overall, one of the most unique and enjoyable games I've ever played.

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.
