  1. It's like the developers read my review and fixed everything I complained about in the first game.
  2. Graphics whores will inevitably be put off by the old school look and feel of the title, but if you can get past that, this is one of the best god games the PC has seen in quite a while.

    The kind of great sequel that should be encouraged - it builds on the solid base of the original, cleans up most of the problems and manages to stake out its own territory in the process.
  4. Tropico 2 is a wonderful game worth its weight in buried golden treasure.

    One of the best games I've ever played. Much better than Tropico 1. Lost quite a few days in finishing this one.

    I like the pirate ability, but it is hard to get, and keep, happiness up.

    I like the classic wood-n-brass look and other affectations (like ol timey words like 'middlin' and 'preenin'). Its I like the classic wood-n-brass look and other affectations (like ol timey words like 'middlin' and 'preenin'). Its harder than the original to win the sandlot games, but the increased speed of construction alone makes it superior to Tropico I, not to mention many more varieties of whore houses to choose from!
