Engage in a tropical power trip! Become the dictator of a remote island during the Cold War. Charm, persuade, intimidate, oppress, or cheat your people to stay in power! Are you a kind and generous leader? A corrupt and ruthless tyrant ruling with an iron fist? Turn your island into a tourist paradise or an industrial power. Make promises to the electorate or slander political adversaries to get the crucial votes for the upcoming elections. Send your avatar to congratulate the people, visit the island of another player, or just sun-bathe on the Caribbean beach.
Play the Cold War superpowers against each other to your maximum advantage. Tropico 3 offers a tongue-in-cheek, light-hearted take on real world issues like third world politics, corruption and totalitarian regimes.

Does not play offline. There are no multiplayer modes or achievements so there is no excuse for this when GOG customers & Pirates get a superior version of the game. If you get the game elsewhere you can slap it on a laptop and play it on trips or when the internet goes out. Why Calypso did this is beyond me. It's a good game, But there's better versions elsewhere i should have gone with instead.

For a game about playing as a dictator,there isnt enough reward for doing so.

It is far easier to attend to the needs of your people than to opress them.It might be your cup of tea,but its not what i was looking for in this game.

I assume you are forced to do villanous things in the campaign,but in sandbox?Not at all.

You cant even muster up your military and establish your "country" as an independent "take-no-♥♥♥♥♥-from-anyone" military power,as an invasion results in instant loss.
