Pros- easier to keep track of the whole island by means of statistics page...its funner to play...music is better.. if you add the DLC content it makes the game 10Xbetter, voice overs are better, the gun fights are funny to watch. overall this is an improvement to its predecessors.
Its above average, at lest from what I expect from this type a game. Its worth renting if you got a lot of time on your hands, as it takes a while to beat any mission, even if its not that hard. I've only completed a few missions and its already getting tedious. It also feels like a remake of Tropico 3, with a couple of things different.
