I'm not the biggest fan of RTS games, but I gave Tropico 3 a shot. It did deliver on some aspects, but other times it felt a bit frustrating.
The thing about Tropico 3 is that if you're doing something wrong, you're gonna get severely punished; I thought the game was difficult. Very little guidance or explanation is present in the game, so you're going to be fending for yourself. One thing I found particularly maddening was when I was trying to get my construction workers to build things. They would work for a day, then completely abandon the project. I went an entire game year without seeing them do work. I eventually had them all shot.
If you're a good RTS player, there are going to be less of these issues for you. Tropico 3 is still fun, and the graphics and sound aren't bad either.
