You, as El Presidente, will first take control of the infamous island of Tropico during early colonial times and then guide it through the centuries as the world changes and moves ever forward. You must tackle the changing needs of your people, as well as opposing governments and factions, and thus lay the foundations for your own dynasty. As you move through your years in office you can promote members of your extended family on the island to positions of power: such as ambassador, commanding general or even Supreme Ruler, to ensure your legacy thrives through the eras. As your influence and wealth grows, so do the threats to your burgeoning island superpower. Can you survive both World Wars, prosper through the Great Depression, rule as an iron-fisted dictator through the Cold War and advance your country to modern times and beyond? From the 19th to the 21st century, each era carries its own challenges and opportunities.

Easy fun. Perfect to rule the world.Very fun civilization builder. Some time constraints can be aggravating, but you can always start new with lessons learned. Hope the next one in the series is just as good and maybe even better.

Enjoy playing this game!Fun! I like strategy based games. It’s challenging and involves a variety of decisions to make with a twist of humor to boot!

Fun and challengingI got the game used for a good price. A little complicated to learn the game but pretty fun once you get into it. I’m that guy who bumps my money up to unlimited and just have fun building. This definitely gave me that. The game can be very challenging and is a little complicated, I don’t ever use tutorials but I’m glad they had one for this game.

Game was so scratched that it wouldn’t load.When I bought the game it was supposed to have all the DLC’s but it wouldn’t load. So I had to exchange for the regular game “at the same price” and was a little annoyed that their wasn’t a break in price but it was for my nephew and he wouldn’t have noticed the difference in money being spent and the value of what you were gaining or in my case what we were losing. I will never stop using GameStop. It was just a bummer that whoever accepted the original game that I had purchased was damaged,and in doing so didn’t realize that I would be out as the final consumer of this product. I again was annoyed and is the only reason I’m writing this. I will say that I just put 70 on COD4 and another 50 on RedDead. And I’ve never had a bad interaction with the staff or the product from GameStop.
