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.
  • 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.

Tropico 4 is yet another sequel to Tropico, still being about dictatorship, and a direct sequel of Tropico 3, being almost like expansion pack. Yep, it's like a building sim, but more centered around small populations of Banana republic, so to say. It was released in 2011 by Haemimont and Kalypso, being on PC and Xbox 360. Steam apparently got this version where they added one more sandbox map and some player costumes. In other words, this is probably the best version.

Not much to say technical wide, but the engine was updated and seems to be even more optimized now. I didn't expect it to work better than Tropico 3, so that's great!
Albeit they implented Steam achievements in silly way. It only checks when you startup the game. That means that if you want in-game achievements to be noticed by Steam then you have to restart the game after your session of play.

And well, what can I say. Tropico 4 without any add-ons feels like a mere expansion pack to Tropico 3: Absolute Power. Sure thing, it came out 2 years after the third one. I am not even sure what to write about.

Well, there is now a new campaign which seem to be fun and with humorous characters. Now with proper main story lines. Still given only through text with potraits.
It was still a bit of a drag, so with it being so similar to Tropico 3 I didn't feel like beating it.

There are a few new buildings, like firehouse. Or salt mine, which promises infinite recources.

It still is easy to keep yourself in power and to have money rain on you from indursty. Actually, you can now import recources, making it possible to run pure industry busyness. And if you are tired of waiting for construction workers wasting time with fiesta, then you can now Quick Build construction with money. Which is great, but seeing how money rains on you, it kinda removes a bit more challenge.

Disaster are now better implented. You can now actually watch hurricane wrecking up your plans in real time.

It's nice to be given side-quests by both campaign and by factions.

And now I think I already ran out of any big things to mention.

As for those who never played, this game is about building your island nation, by placing buildings, issuing kinda-dictatorship edicts and keeping all political factions happy. Also, unlike first game, it's very easy to keep in power and keep factions happy, so 3 and 4 are very laid back games. Actually, it's easier to be democratic and honest, then try to be dictator, so forget about this part. Sadly. Still will steal hours of your time.

It's still is a bit more than Tropico 3 with Absolute Power, so newcomers should buy this one. Just watch it, there is one expansion pack and dozens of lazy tiny DLCes.
