Really Bad

Almost awesome

Tropico 3 was a well-designed game with detailed mechanics and numerous strategical approaches to similar problems. At first, I was enveloped in a way I haven't experienced since the early days of SimCity.

Then the bugs started showing up.

There are no fewer than five different ways to freeze the game, each caused by events that are not under the player's control. There is also a bug which can corrupt your save file if your city is above 500 citizens (normal population in most missions). The game's producers seem to have given up on fixing these game-breaking errors, and after losing five or six games I had been playing for hours, I gave up on them. I am truly disappointed, as Tropico was clearly cut out to be one of the best-crafted sim games I have seen, but any seasoned gamer will agree that missions that take 3-4 hours to beat absolutely cannot be subjected to frequent freezes and file corruption.

Tropico 2 is more of the same, but BETTER

If you played the first one on the PC you will be instantly familiar with this sequel. The game mechanics and flow are are exactly the same. You have the same buildings (a couple of new ones), same objectives, and same game play. The only changes worth mentioning are the improved graphics, edicts options and much smoother game play. Although this game is very similar to the first one, it is in essence a new experience. Its got charming music and funny dialogs.

Game Highlights:

Great Graphics
Online Challenges
Smooth Game-play
Funny Dialogs
Varied difficulty levels

Negative Points:

Low Replay Value (Repetitive Game Play)
Not Enough Buildings
