For a theme with this much potential, this DLC is pretty uninspired. You get a new building (the bunker) which is pretty pointless, since it doesn't do anything noteworthy, and some other small things (outfit, trait).

However, the main reason I got this was because of the apocalypse mission, and it's pretty underwhelming. The mission pretty much goes like this: build the pointless bunker which triggers new missions -> do random missions for 4 standard factions -> game over. There's NO juggling of diplomatic relations leading up to the so called war and NO tension in terms of time or resource constraints (you can play your standard routine until you're filthy rich) in the face of imminent destruction.

Lastly there is NO ACTUAL WAR. None. I've played this mission several times (once the normal faction route and once the voodoo lady ending) and it always ended the same: "Whoops, turns out there is no war. Isn't this funny?". Instead of the mission ending with a literal bang or with an invasion of the US/USSR, it just ends with a lame dialogue box. Quite disappointing, really.

Only one new building, outfit, trait and mission for this price. It's not worth it.

Apocalypse is the 10th tiny stuff DLC for Tropico 4. And the last one. They sure abused the system. Oh well, we all will just get Collector's Bundle on big sale.

The mission is fairly interesting, but nothing too hard. The nuculear war is coming and you have to stuff your shelter up with some of the four main factions members, while other will complain about your choices. There is a harder victory condition of constructing an extremely expensive building. But we all know how to make money rain on head by now.
No, nothing spectacular is going to happen, it's not going to turn into DayZ. But you probably should have been expecting it if you played Tropico campaigns. Just your usual humor.

Building that you get here is Shelter. It's not cheap, but once you set it up, you can increase respect of any faction by 20-40 by setting up it's work mode at anytime.
