...スペシャルアイランド (Isla Nublar)とEl Presidente アバターコスチューム (Luchador) 、更に50 Steam実績入り。全てを支配するべくEl Presidenteが帰ってきた!

このゲームについて

The world is changing and Tropico is moving with the times - geographical powers rise and fall and the world market is dominated by new players with new demands and offers - and you, as El Presidente, face a whole new set of challenges. If you are to triumph over your naysayers you will need to gain as much support from your people as possible. Your decisions will shape the future of your nation, and more importantly, the size of your off-shore bank account.
Tropico 4 expands on the gameplay of the previous game with new political additions ∼ including more superpowers to negotiate with, along with the ability to elect ministers into power to help get your more controversial policies passed. But remember to keep your friends close and your enemies closer as everyone has an agenda! Your political mettle will be thoroughly tested, as new natural disasters will have the populace clamoring for you and your cabinet to help them recover from some of the worst Mother Nature can dish out.
Tropico 4 also brings a new level of social interaction with the addition of Facebook and Twitter integration. Post comments on Twitter direct from the game and have updates go out when you complete missions or unlock new achievements. You can even take screenshots of your burgeoning island and post your dream creation on your Tropico 4 Facebook page and compare your interactive Dictator Ranking on the online leaderboards.

Key Features:

  • New campaign consisting of 20 missions on 10 new maps.
  • 20 new buildings including Stock Exchange, Shopping mall, Aqua Park and a Mausoleum to El Presidente.
  • Six new interactive disasters including volcanoes, droughts and tornadoes.
  • Council of Ministers – selected citizens to ministerial posts in the government to help push through your more controversial decisions.
  • National Agenda – receive objectives from Tropican factions, foreign geopolitical powers or opportunities relating to current island events such as ongoing disasters.
  • Facebook and Twitter integration.
  • Screenshot gallery – take screenshots of your tropical paradise and share on your Facebook page.
  • Trading system – import and export goods to/from other nations to boost your economy or production.

日本語化のサイトを頼ったけど日本語に出来ず、amazonでgold edition買ってしまいました。
4000円するので決して安くはないのですが、tropicoが好きなので目を瞑ります・・・。
日本語版だと音声も日本語なのでとてもわかりやすかったです。
3と比べてそこまで変化はないですが楽しめました。
gold edition全部クリアして総プレイ時間が30~40時間程度でした(о´∀`о)

日本語が出力できないのはまだいいとして、新しいパッチでMODで日本語化されたものを起動時に英語版に戻すのをやめてほしい。
せめて公式で日本語版を用意してくれるぐらいの代案がないのならばこんな無駄なパッチ修正を加えないでほしい。

At first, I wanted to be a kind, benevolent dictator, in charge of my island which of course would be perfectly green, a land of equality, equal pay, a high living standard, jobs for every Tropican, a high level of schooling and a good member of the United Nations.

However, people kept complaining. At first, this was fine. Free Speech and all. But they were not working. Worse, they began to become rebels and attack the work of innocent, hard working Tropicans. "Right," I thought, "no more of that." I built guard posts around the nation to protect my other civilians and the economy which kept everyone fed and housed. After a while, the strikes became too much. "This right to protest is too inefficient", I thought, "and we just missed that freighter. We needed that boost to the economy." In a moment of Thatcher, I had the newly raised guards gun down some of the strikers. The rest returned to work. The right to protest had been removed, but people were happier as everyone got richer.

The environmentalists began to get angry. "It's too messy, too much industry, etc." I sighed. Look, did they like having money? Money to get houses? Electricity for movie theatres and hospitals? Wind Turbines simply don't do enough, we needed that gas Power Plant. We needed the jobs to keep the whole economy turning. I tried, I added gardens, I protected and grew new forests, but they continued to complain. So I stopped listening, and focused on the higher standard of living.

The U.S. came to me, demanding that I give them money, give this, give that, or "accidents can happen". But Agent Sasha instead never threatened me, referred to me as comrade and my islanders as Brothers. The Russians understood why I had to silence dissedence, and so we joined the Russians. At least they appreciated their people. The Americans... they didn't like this. But we stopped caring. We built assault rifles and using the funds from that, we built a nuclear weapon. Does it work? No idea, but it looks scary and shows the Americans that we MAY be able to blow something up. They stayed away and all was relatively well.

Now, schooling was fine, but a lot of Tropicans were starting to get funny ideas. They didn't understand that I was so strict because I was balancing the house of cards that was my economy. They had food, jobs, entertainment, a good house with fantastic conditions, they were safe from criminals and rebels and they could travel anywhere in the world (but mostly Russia, China and the MIddle East). If they had to not protest or speak against me, it was purely because I couldn't risk this going wrong. So I had to change a few things. I began to ask that schools make sure that children understood how fantastic our nation was, how corrupt the U.S. was, how our military kept us safe. A few people got a bit funny with that, but I needed to make sure this nation would continue after my death. I executed the rebels and burnt any book which said otherwise. People got iffy, but after a few years, they stopped caring. Good. Now we can continue in happiness.

Finally, my economy began to crumble. People refused to work the poorer jobs, they sat back on welfare and complained. They refused to pay the rent for better houses and built hovels on the side of roads. They committed crimes despite having social welfare. I couldn't make them work.

So, I built cheaper places for them to live, cheaper foods and easier work. But my towns were full, so I built them in another area. To support my now burdened economy, I had to import immigrants. Lots of them. A few people began to complain, but I shot them and they stopped. Now we have a high, middle, lower and underclass, which is executed often to save the economy.

However, Tropico is now making more money than ever, we're supporting every country that needs us, our people are famous for their money (when they can afford to travel), people order is perfect, there is no crime, you can go as far as you're willing to work, and you're safe.

You're welcome, my comrades.

12月18日:DLC雑感書いてたら文字数案件食らった上、せめてコメントにするか、とか試行錯誤してたら間違ってそれごとレビュー全部消えちゃったので泣いていいですか。順次復旧します(悲壮)

総合して言うと:トロピコ3より格段に金がものをいうようになりました。特に倍額建築ルールの実装などですね。

便利になった点
  • 前述の倍額建築ルールの実装。建築費用を倍額払うと、建物が即座に建築されるようになった。
    そのため、火山の火口内部や頂上周りをガレージ整地して風力発電機を乱立するというプレイができるようになった。
    これにより建築工員の重要度が下がり、建物の解体をしないなら建築工員は究極、不要になった(解体時には必要なので完全に不要とは言ってない)
    ちなみにこの「建築費用」はもちろん銀行などでの補正も含みなので、早期に銀行を建てる意義がある意味増したかもしれない。
  • 火災や干ばつ、タンカー座礁などの一部の災害についても、金で即時解決できるようになった。
  • 竜巻や津波などの災害による被害を減らす(であろう)気象局が追加された。
  • 誇大妄想の布告タブがなくなり、それらの内容は廃止もしくは他のタブに移籍したため、3年に一度トロピケットでイデオロギー本を頒布する必要がなくなった。
  • 「やあ、プレシデンテだよ」が神強化されて帰ってきた。
  • 税関が追加され、輸出入や観光収入に有利に働く。
  • 園芸室が追加され、農作物の価格上昇や木の生える速度ボーナスなど、農林業が有利に。
  • 数々のDLCにより(特にプランテーションと速乾セメント)、金策などが非常に楽になった。
  • ミッションが追加され、派閥対策が非常に楽になった。(が「派閥活動の非合法化」は消えた)
  • 特性が「長所短所ともに2つずつ方式」から「全部の中から3つ方式」になった。
  • 内閣府の追加により、住民の熟練度上昇に素でもボーナスがかけられるようになった。
  • 3AP(アブソリュートパワー)のうざいおばさんDJから解放された。
不便になった点、残念な点
  • 多くの布告の発動に「内閣府の設置」と「大臣の配置」が必要になった。
    「食料倍増計画」など一般タブの布告ならまだしも、「識字率向上計画」「商業キャンペーン」「秘密警察の設置」など、
    専門タブの布告については早期発動が難しくなった。特に内務に関する布告(秘密警察や盗聴など)が切りづらい。
    内務大臣を早期に自前で確保するのは、教育・外務・経済と比べてかなりハードルが高い。
  • 「歴史上の人物」で遊べなくなった。言うてファミスタ的なレベル(落合をおみあいとかのアレ)とはいえ・・・
  • ペヌルティモの声が変わった。変わってしまった。あとプレシデンテの声も。
  • というか、3APのクソババアから解放された代わりに各派閥の顔役などに一気に顔グラと声が追加された。
    なにが残念かって?国粋主義閥の顔役がマジでただのDQNなんだよ!環境保護閥もまるでヒッピーだし!
  • 住民の職業に「犯罪者」が追加された。反乱軍よりはマシだが、少なくとも生産には寄与しない。

素直に面白いです。現在進行形で楽しんでいます。
セール時に短時間やれれば程度で買いましたが、目標をちまちまこなすのが楽しく止められません。
simやcivで、つい町の位置のバランスや効率を考えながら綺麗に配置したいって気持ちになる方にはぴったりかもしれません。
悪い点については、頻繁に出てくる災害ムービーをカットできたら…もしかするとどこかに設定があるのかもしれませんが見つけられませんでした。
また、日本語化を前提に遊ぶ方は買う前に日本語化方法を調べてデモ版をDLしてファイルを揃えておくことをお勧めします。

都市の開発というよりは人事管理がメインといったかんじ。人々の不満を汲み取って必要な施設を作り、適材適所に人員を配置します。
必要な人材はポコポコ湧いてなんてきませんから呼び込まないといけませんし、学歴が必要ならどうにかして満たす人材を用意せねばなりません。
また、人々のニーズに答えられるようなリーダーでなければ血なまぐさい事態にもなるでしょう。
まぁ無理に住人であり続けてもらわなくても構わないのですが・・・?

Tropico 4 by Haemimont Games and Kalypso is the construction game Tropico 3 already should have been.
El Presidente is back, the dictator (a bit like fidel castro) of the island paradise of Tropico. You can watch as your presidente transforms an island from a wild, undeveloped garden into a bastion of industry and wealth.

For those new to Tropico, you are a Caribbean dictator who can create his own banana republic, a tourist resort, or a industrial empire on different island maps. There is an RPG-esque character creator. You can choose from a list of real dictators to play as, you can make your own custom character too since then you can choose the bonuses to suit your play style.
A large part of Tropico 4 vocation is to prevail in the decision, but the rest is in the mere satisfaction of building a city.
Like an elaborate set of LEGOs, you can drag and drop buildings, lay roads, and set up infrastructure to create a land of your devising. Tropico 4 features all new missions across new maps and includes exciting and fun new features to keep the action fresh and challenging. You can even select ministers to help you at your decisions.

The city government and political is a good combo. You always have something to build, a political or international faction to appease, or an election to win. Life on the island is never boring, and is an addictive and enjoyable endeavor. Overcoming a challenging scenario, such as building up a successful economy on an island with virtually no resources, teaches new skills and keeps me from feeling like I'm doing the same thing over and over.

There isn’t much new here so it feels more like an expansion to me than a true sequel. If you’re new to the series this is a great place to start and long time. Impressive efforts with a few noticeable problems holding it back. Won't astound everyone, but is worth your time and cash. If you like Civilization or Sim City, or has an unhealthy need to be in control, then it’s time to become el presidente.

Score: 85 / 100

Now about this game. You start on an Island with the following.
- 1 palace to guard your president
- 1 teamster office to distribute the goods
- 1 construction office to build your buildings
- 1 dock to ship your goods and to bring you immigrants
- a certain amount of money
- random buildings given as bonus.

In this game your goal will be the following
- to survive economically
- to keep the satisfaction level of your peasants at an acceptable level
- to fend of any rebels coups and uprisings against your dictatorship in a non controlable fight
- to keep the diplomatic relationships with the us and the soviet union at a level where they wont invade your island.
- to accomplish the main tasks given by the scenario

I played this game for 200 hours now. And i can say it is a nice game. What is nice about it? I like leveling the stats of my el presidente character. Like to do the game achievements. There are some that i have not finished yet even after 200 hours. And that is because sometimes it is not easy. I played the campain several times. Got 3 stars in every scenario. With extra missions and Modern times. I think the nicest thing about this game is the fact that everything has a solution. Unlike its predecessor Tropico 3 where you were stuck with high pollution from factories you now have garbage dumps and water treatment plants in Modern times. You have alternative energy sources. You can import goods and smuggle goods. Your island no longer defines what you can do on it but rather your imagination limits the way you play. I will purchase Tropico 5 once i have finished everything in this game and Tropico sells for a 75% or 80% discount.

Overall rating: 9/10

By far my favourite city-building sim of all time.

I actually bought this game because I had heard a ♥♥♥♥-tonne of ♥♥♥♥ about how awful the new Simcity was, and I was really craving a Simcity-like game. After playing Tropico, I don't think I could go back to playing Simcity ever again.

Tropico is more or less what Simcity would be if it had a nonsensical, but fantastically humorous storyline. You play as El Presidente, ruler of some island, and the game takes you through a bunch of different and ridiculous scenarios. Describing them would spoil the fun of you finding them out on their own. In the meantime, you have to keep everyone happy - be it the religious group, the nationalists or the environmentalists, which often requires a delicate balance in where you spend your hard-earned dollars.

As for the gameplay, the learning curve is just about where you want it to be. You have a lot of leeway in the earlier missions and the objectives are relatively straightforward, whilst the later objectives can be a little frustrating and even unfair. There was one mission in particular where after playing for hours and completing the initial objectives, I was told that the next objective had to be completed by a certain date - this date had already passed, and I instantly failed the objective. I was... miserable, to say the least.

Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on who you are), once you get the hang of the game and know what you're doing, things become a little bit too easy. Without trying to spoil anything, I'll just say that some forms of income are much easier to obtain than other forms, which creates somewhat of a conundrum - you WANT to diversify your city because it's more fun that way, but it requires more work for it to be successful.

The graphics are pretty standard for a modern game, although the Caribbean-inspired music was stuck in my head for quite some time.

Overall, I'd most definitely recommend this game for anyone that likes city-building simulation games (be it Sim City, Rollercoaster Tycoon, Theme Park, etc).

All loyal Tropicans play and enjoy Tropico 4.

Those who don't will be subject to a suprise visit from El Presidente's Tropican National Pep Squad and sent to an all expense paid trip to El Presidente's Rehabilition Resort.

Welcome back to Tropico my friends! Not much has changed since Tropico 3. There are new menus, new caricatures, new voice overs that lay on thick personality and accents. The graphics look the same and feel as if they're directly from Tropico 3. The are new disasters like tornadoes, tsunamis, droughts, and volcanoes. To compliment the disasters there are fire stations to put out the fires and a new weather station. To unlock edicts that help or opress your people, you'll not only need a ministry new to the series, but hire people to run each branch. You'll get to chose from viable candidates, or for a price you can import an expert. Buildings can now import resources. If you have a rum factory, but no sugar farms, you can simply import the sugar. There are also more foreign powers such as China, the UK and the Middle East. They won't donate money like the USA and USSR, but they'll give you goals to accomplish. There are new optional goals that you get by clicking the icons over buildings. New to the series is a quick build that will instantly construct a building for a price.

Tropico 4 is a surprisingly good city builder or rather a 3rd world simulator. It is very different than games like Sim City and Cities XL. Those two games are more macro city builders, where in two or three mouse clicks you can make city blocks where 1,000 people might live. With Tropico 4 and the Tropico series in general, you need to place each building, each road and your island along with the time it takes your construction company to build it. Your entire island might get to be 200 - 500 'Tropicans.'

Each Tropican has needs... Food, religion, job, healthcare, entertainment, safety and so on. The catch is every Tropican's needs have a certain weight to them based on what faction they believe in. Each faction has major and minor demands. The military will want more soldiers, so you need to build an army base. The religious faction will want a church or cathedral. The capitalist party will want privatization or upscale entertainment. The communist party will want you to enable the free public housing edict or have etiquette healthcare.

On top of that, you balance political relations with the USA and USSR. If they get too bad, one of the two will basically take over your country and it will be game over. It is interesting how many ways that you can get game over. The most common way to get a game over is to lose an election. You don't have to have elections even. You're in charge. If you don't want an election, the nationalist party will hate you and your loyalist party will love you. If you opt to have elections, it will be vise versca. People will call for early elections and when you have elections, you can see preliminary results and you can even sway (cheat) elections. Its all at the risk of a party's love.

It is pretty cool having to pick 3 things to make a speech about and then fulfill campaign promises, but its all pretty easy. Winning elections is pretty easy, especially compared to how difficult it was to win any elections in the original Tropico. It was so bad in that game, that it was almost impossible to win an election without stuffing the ballot box.

When citizens hate you, and there will be plenty that do, they will either peacefully protest or become rebels. Once you have enough rebels against you, they will attack your most remote buildings. Your army will then go fight them, but if the rebels outnumber your army, the rebel will win and the buildings will be destroyed. The rebels can attack your palace or flat out assassinate you for a game over.

Tropico has a single player campaign with 20 scenarios that each take an hour or two to complete. You don't just pick scenarios, you unlock them. Each scenario seems to have scenario specific events that only occur in the scenarios. Unlike Tropico 3, I don't get a sense in the scenarios of an ultimate goal I'm striving toward. I feel like I stumble into victory when its least expected. At the start of each scenario you can pick a player character from historical tropican dictators or make your own avatar. You can even make personality traits that will result in pros and cons. It can drastically change your play style if you are incorruptible and never have any crime or have a green thumb and have high farm yields at the cost of low factory production.

Your businesses, mines, farms, and everything requires citizens in them to function and make you money. Every citizen has different education levels that will impact who does what. So you need to build high schools and colleges. Once built, there are options to gear students to military or religion. You can also click vacant positions to hire foreign experts for a price. If you have more businesses than citizens, build an immigration office and let anyone into the country or change it to only let in skilled workers so you keep bums out of your country.

Nothing is done automatically. You place a building, then wait for your teamsters and construction crews to build it. The more crews and personnel you have working, the faster it'll get done. I'm happy with that. Its part of the realism. If there's a building you want developed faster, you can increase or decrease its priority. If its still taking too long, just have your avatar stand next to the building to get it done faster. The fire station works the same way.

The graphics are beautiful and you'll see every Tropican walking around, hopping in their car and driving to locations. The music is nice and very Tropican / Salsa music, but there's very little variety from Tropico 3. A few hours in I was bored with the music. The DJs feel gone for the most part. They're still in the game, but they do interviews with one liners here and there. The voice acting consists of great parodies of stereotypes. They really had fun embellishing on characters with tongue in cheek humor. The game knows you're all powerful and while being a dictator is usually seen as a horrifyingly negative thing, the humor twists it into a silly positive thing.

If you have Tropico 3, play Tropico 3. Tropico 4 is still a great game, but has a ton of DLC and feels like a cash grab with only minor upgrades. The menu feels more cumbersome and click heavy than Tropico 3. The disasters take way too long and it breaks the flow the game has. The quick build feature feels like a good addition that you don't have to use, but sometimes it takes forever for the construction crews to build, even with several construction offices at full capacity.
