FInally revisited this title. Never played a whole lot, back in the day, since a friend owned it and not I. Glad to see that it holds up to this day very well. A must buy for any strategy game junkie that loves classics and has a taste for some light political humor.

A must play, amigo.

I've played this game many years ago. Always loved it. Its simple and to the point though I love the Civilization series. Sometimes something that is more bare bones seems to hit the spot. I only play the original Tropico and it interestingly holds up graphically.

Having never played Tropico before, but getting the series at a good price, I thought I'd give the older games a go to see how the series progressed over the years.

Graphically, Tropico looks a lot like the older Roller Coaster Tycoon series. It's not beautiful by any means, but it's not without its charm either.

Gameplay is pretty straight forward: you're the dictator of an island and you need to keep your people happy while balancing politics and economics. There isn't a lot of micromanagement like the Sim City games, and the entire experience feels pretty relaxed and entertaining.

There isn't a huge diversity of buildings available, but there are enough to feel like the game has sufficient content. There are also various scenareos all featuring different maps, and if that's not enough, you can generate a random map to your own specifications.

The only complaint I have against Tropico is that there are some resolution issues, and the information tab kept opening itself every few minutes. The tab may have been a local issue, or it may have been a glitch. Not game-breaking, but still annoying.

All in all, Tropico is still a very playable game even today. That said, I don't know if it's worth investing your time and money unless you're nostalgic or looking to experience the series as it aged (like I was). I only say this because the newer games in the series have all received mostly positive reviews, and there really isn't any reason to take two steps back unless its an experience you're exclusively looking for.

To all the citizens of Tropico I failed: lo siento, mi amigos - no soy un buen dictador.

Nice game, but you have to consider this game was made on 2001.
