Are you looking for something a little different? Had your fill of shooters and racing games this year? If so, then why not invest your money in a sim game with a latino twist and a large dose of humour!
Tropico 3 is perhaps better known by PC Gamers, however, its now got its first console release, and its pretty darn swell. Sure its a take on Sim City - a take which see's you build a tropical island as your own dictator or one of many other preset figures from history.
The graphics are good for the type of game, and the gameplay itself is engrossing and enjoyable and spans over 15 campaign missions, and several other challenge and sandbox modes. Considering the price its made available, and the amount of stuff to do, its a bargain.
I do have the odd gripe with the camera and the on-screen menus, and road building can be a pain, but these are outweighed by the games other positive traits.
Try it - you might be pleasantly surprised.
