About the Game

The times are changing and the island nation of Tropico is evolving. The Internet, a New World Order, terrorists, global financial markets and space exploration are on the rise and pose new challenges to El Presidente and his regime.

Old buildings and structures are becoming obsolete and need to be upgraded or even replaced by their modern counterparts. Cars and transportation need modernization to meet the needs of a changing economy; and now El Presidente can even send people to the International Space Station! El Presidente and his ministers must now join the war against terror and control Internet regulation and freedom of speech on Tropico.

Key Features:

  • Make Tropico fit for the 21st century: Evolve the island from the Cold War era to modern times and even into the future
  • 30 new buildings become available as time progresses, including condos, skyscrapers, Organic Ranches and Biofarms. Replace obsolete buildings with these modern and inspiring designs
  • Upgrade old buildings to new variants – modernized apartment buildings, banks, museums and much more
  • 10 new edicts allow even more control over your citizens’ lives. Block or limit citizens’ Internet use, create a police state or be a “good guy” and launch the Festival of Love edict
  • New single player campaign comprised of 12 comprehensive scenario missions. Protect Tropico from unseen and sinister forces

Mixed opinion. While the updated buildings are neat features (they generally are higher quality/capacity), after you unlock the upgrade (based on year/timeline), you no longer are able to build the older (cheaper) versions. New Campaign is a nice feature though.

If you like Tropico 4 then it's definitely worth the money as it adds an entire new campaign and the new buildings and edicts really do add a lot to sandbox mode. Some of the new buildings and edicts make the original campaign a bit too easy though especially if you have some of the other DLC.

Basically Tropico 4 is a very fun city builder that does not take itself seriously at all and if you enjoyed it I highly reccomend the expansion. If you're not into city builders then I don't think this will change your mind about the game either.

Modern times is an expansion pack to Tropico 4, that adds a new campaign and a whole set of new buildings and a new edict tab. The new buildings are not had all at once- this time the date actually means something, and over the course of a mission, new buildings will be unlocked for you as you hit certain dates. They nearly all replace old buildings, and you get things like a giant pyramid house, a skyscraper office building, a car factory, and more. The missions are well done but the difficulty is kind of lacking- the new structures are really "overpowered", like a farm that grows all kinds of crops and a borehole mine that will mine a thousand minerals each month. You end up with gobs of money really fast, and so you mostly just go through the motions. Worth picking up if you liked Tropico 4's campaign.
