About This Game

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.

Tropico 4 is city building simulation game published by Kalypso Media Digital. It is a sequel to the previous game Tropico 3.

Tropico 4 is one of my favorite city building game, it's so fun and feature rich. It's more like island nation simulation game. You can build many things, do many things... in fact many things can happen here. Greatest simulation game I ever play.

Gameplay of Tropico 4 is very rich, and they're so great! Start as a small town in an island on the Caribbean, we begin developing by building new living places such as houses, creating infrastructure and public services such as roads, church, hospital and ♥♥♥♥. Everything needs to be addressed here, the happiness of the people, the economy and industry, even diplomacy with other nation and the two world great superpowers, The USA and the USSR. Failed to address even one of these and bad things will happen, like rebellion, or military coup, or worse an invasion! But managing those problem are not easy too. ♥♥♥♥ happens mate. Volcano could erupt and explodes, tornadoes may attack or even tsunami can invade! But hey! You are the El Presidente right? Anything is possible.

Tropico 4 Graphics are quite decent, while it's not as pretty as SimCity, it's not bad. Still has its own beauty. Performances are great, but some small bug still present in this game, not a big deal though, just some graphical bug with those fisherman.

Tropico 4 are one of best city building simulation out there, with some small humor build into it. I recommend this! Become El Presidente today!

Rating 9/10

"Sometimes democracy must be bathed in blood."
Augusto Pinochet

I have made good working condions, high wages, free accomodation and high profit enterprise from my island Tropico. All the people must have had military education and training to be prepared for hostile actions of foreign powers which wants to exploit our great nation. Anyone who stands againts my will stands against all of us because I was the man of the people. Love Tropico or Leave it.

GUERRA ETERNA!

7.5 /10

Be El Presidente, make your own paradise and doesn't matter if that should be paradise for capitalists, communists, intelectuals, religious, militarists, environmentalists, nationalists or loyalists (These are the factions), or a mix of them, or you can even try to satisfy every faction. The game starts few years after the second world war and you can befriend US or USSR (also you can try to be friend with both), or make trades with Europe, Middle East and China, if you do not want to take sides in cold war. You are a leader of small tropical island named Tropico and with your almost unlimited power you can do there whatever you want. You can give food, education and accommodation for free in the price of hard work and low wages of your citizens, or you can try to create utopia. If there are rebels who wants to take you down from your imaginary throne, you can cancel next elections and declare martial law.
