"Overall, however, the expansion to the game was very well done. It makes it easier to perform some very basic functions in the game such as dealing with your factions, and adds some new game mechanics in." - Gamingexcellence.com
"Absolute Power adds great new scenarios and buildings to Tropico 3, along with some welcome fixes and frills." - Gamespot.com
Tropico 3: Absolute Power is the first official expansion pack to the critically acclaimed Tropico 3 and provides all-new options as ruler of a small Caribbean island nation. It adds a new campaign, new missions, new island types, unique buildings and new powers to maximize the length and success of your term in power.
New campaign featuring 10 all-new missions and islands
New buildings garbage dump, marina, grade school, etc.
New edicts declare an annual festival dedicated to yourself, print your own money or outlaw your most annoying political faction among others.
New traits and appearances to take El Presidente's power to the next level.
New huge landmarks huge decorations and structures as a reward for political and economical success to make your island unique.
New "loyalist" faction comprised of your die-hard supporters.
More radio announcements and a new radio station with witty comments on your actions in the game.
This is the first and only DLC for the game Tropico 3. When you add this new DLC to the core game of Tropico 3 you get a very good and interesting game which focuses on building up your empire as a dictator. You can choose traits and the DLC adds more of these to the game. The DLC also adds plenty of new items such as many new landmarks, buildings and lost lots more! The DLC also adds a completely new and brilliant campaign mode which adds plenty of new challenge and tons more missions and scenarios that you have to work your way through and solve. If you like Tropico 3 this is a MUST buy!
Although it was declared to be the fifirst official expansion pack to Tropico 3, Absolute Power was the only expansion released for this game. But on the other hand it's really good, and when you add it to your game, your Tropico 3 experience will be as complete as possible. It expands the game with new edicts, traits and visual styles for your El Presidente. More landmarks and buildings are added, new faction of loyalists is introduced, and as if it was not enough, there is also a completely new campaign to play through. Tropico 3 went a completely different path than its successor, Tropico 4. While in the fourth Tropico there is a choice of many small DLCs, you only get one big expansion for Tropico 3, and I cannot imagine playing the game without it.
