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.
  • 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: Appoint 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: Post live Tweets directly from the game or create posts automatically upon completion of missions, unlocking achievements etc.
  • Trading system: Import and export goods to/from other nations

 Enjoyable and Well Designed City Builder Sim

Having previously tried, and failed, to get into SimCity I decided to pick up Tropico 4 at a bargain price and thoroughly enjoyed its tongue in cheek approach to the city building genre.

As with its predecessors the game puts you in charge of running a tropical island, either in the open sandbox mode or the 30 mission campaign. Played in sandbox mode the game is actually very similar to SimCity with no real goals or time limits to affect how you play allowing free reign to design your island in any manner you wish. While this is certainly good fun I generally found the campaign mode, which sees the game split into missions lasting between one and two hours (although it is of course possible to save the game at any point), the more enjoyable experience. The varying goals of each mission force the player to play each one differently. One mission may ask you to set up a resort to attract tourists whilst the next may require you to export a certain quantity of natural resources for example.

Regardless of what mode you play the game in there is certainly a great deal of depth to proceedings with finances, citizen happiness, crime levels etc all needing to be correctly managed. Fortunately a well designed tutorial explains everything clearly and the will controls quickly become second nature meaning people new to the series will easily be able to get up to speed.

One of the best city builders around Tropico 4 will appeal to anyone with an interest in the genre even if anyone that has played the previous game will find not much has changed.
