Tropico combines real-time strategy and simulation elements with a healthy dose of political intrigue and Caribbean flair to create a unique and critically acclaimed game experience.
Tropico: As the newly instated dictator of an obscure Caribbean Island, you will build a path of progress for your sapling nation, overcoming poverty, strife and other evils – or will you?

Combining building-oriented gameplay with a healthy dose of Latin American political intrigue - Tropico bundles it all up in a fun, totally original and utterly addictive package.
Tropico: Paradise Island The official expansion for the original game not only brings natural disasters like tropical storms but also new tourist attractions to your island. Face the challenges of tons of new scenarios, prove yourself a worthy leader to your own people and make Tropico a paradise for wealthy visitors from overseas.

Solid, but Overshadowed by Newer Entrieslachking | Oct. 28, 2013 | See all lachking's reviews »
This pack contains both Tropico 1 and Tropico 2 which are fairly solid games in their own right, but are made rather redundant by the existence of Tropico 3 and Tropico 4. If you have played either Tropico 3 or Tropico 4, you will find that this pack misses a lot of the features such as cars and roads, and for this reason, I would not recommend playing this pack if you have one of the more recent games. This is also compounded by the fact that Tropico 2 is a rather weak game in itself, and Tropico 1 ran into issues on my computer including crashing and distorted graphics. The graphics of these games aren’t bad but are definitely dated and the sound is decent. The saving grace is that this pack is quite cheap compared to the newer Tropicos. There is definite fun to be had with this pack, but just be warned that the mechanics are dated and have been superseded.

Tropico Reloaded is a great game but I dont think it compares to Tropico 4, which I also have. This is good if you want a game to kill time, the graphics arent that great, well not compared to Tropico 4. Overall I would recommend this to anyone who is wanting to try the Tropico series and are not sure if they would like the game or not. Its a good starting point. It's entertaining, not to deep, yet so engaging...

Tropico Reloaded is a collection of the first title of the series. In Tropico and its expansion you are a dictator, while in Tropico 2 you are a pirate and you must manage all aspect of your island to create a stable economy. In both games there are many scenario with different objectives that are very challenging, because you must learn how to use your resources to reach the objective in a limited amount of time. Tropico is a challenging game that will give many hours of gameplay to peole who love this genre

Do you miss the golden age of Sierra's city builder games (Caesar, Pharaoh etc)? No longer! Tropico will definitely scratch that itch for you.
I personally find the scenarios of the original a little too open ended, but the style and execution of the game is still excellent. Not only do you need to balance your finances and expand your settlement, you need to keep your subjects happy (or afraid) or you'll soon find yourself out of office. I find this extra layer of management adds a lot to the challenge and enjoyment of the game. Especially since you can either take the approach of trying to keep everyone happy, or fixing elections and assassinating rebels.
Tropico 2 takes a more mission based approach, and takes on a pirate theme. Regardless of outward looks, it's still quite similar in gameplay - manage your resources, expand your settlement, and keep your pirates happy.
At this price, it's a bargain. If you love management sims, particularly the likes of Caesar, you will love this game.

For some reason, I find this game more fun to play then Tropico 3 or 4. It just has more feeling to it. Its super fun and a great deal!
