You've heard about the PC Gamer Club, right? You know, the membership programme we launched earlier this year that nets members a digital subscription to PC Gamer magazine, monthly game keys, ad-free-browsing on this site, and more. More information can be found via our Club FAQ.
Anyway, this month's PC Gamer Club game is Tropico 4. This cult favourite series sees you become El Presidente, and run an island state however you see fit. It has enhanced diplomacy options over its predecessor, and is generally considered a better game than Tropico 3. "Growing bananas and rigging elections remains remarkably entertaining" is what Tim Stone said in his original review of Tropico 4 from a few years back. Now it's yours to own. Enjoy.
This game comes courtesy of retailer Bundle Stars and Kalypso Media, who also publish skyscraper construction and management sim Project Highrise, which has Very Positive user reviews on Steam. You play the role of an architect and developer, building world renowned skyscrapers that are the envy of every major city. That game's available now.
And, for even more Tropico action, you might like to check out Bundle Stars' Nemesis 3 Bundle. It includes Tropico 5, Facerig, the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Trilogy and Styx: Master of Shadows.
Sign up forms for the PC Gamer Club can be found in this direction.
Tropico 5 doesn’t deviate far from the series’ blueprint – real-time city-building on an initially low-tech, low-wealth Caribbean island, with you playing the role of a cartoonish dictator who’s as benign or malign as you care to be, now with a revamped campaign mode and added multiplayer.
I’ve spent a big chunk of this week with it, and have now left its sun-kissed beaches and mouldering tenements to bring you the following report. If it matters, I skipped Tropico 4 so can’t tell you anything about how it compares to that.> … [visit site to read more]
