"Tropico 4: Modern Times gives the core game a much needed content injection, and turns Tropico 4 into a better game. Some additions have a larger impact on Tropican economic planning than others, but Modern Times is well worth checking out for any fan of Tropico." - Destructoid.com
"The end of the current Tropico engine is a pretty cool place. Recommended for anybody looking for a breezy, colorful city-builder." - Gamingnexus.com

Tropico 4: Modern Times expansion brings a dozen of brand new missions, expanding the story on different islands. It bring modern 21 century setting and environment to the gameplay. You have to a fan of the main Tropico 4 game to like this DLC, because it has the same good and bad things from the series.
It's the largest expansion so far I think, with many new buildings, edicts and opportunities. All new features are practical and solved many old problems. The downside is that the "Tropico feeling" is unfortunately lost. It now feels more like, as if you have to build a futuristic city on another planet.
Conclusion Ultimately, probably everyone has to decide for himself whether he wants to play a futuristic Tropico. From the scope and technical playing here, the Modern times extension is worth without a doubt for fans of the game looking for more content.
