    As a fan of the previous installments i feel insulted that Kalypso would make a "new" Tropico game and call it the 4th installment. This games in-game menu's, building, characters, design is almost identical to the previous game. Download the glicthy demo if it is still available and see for yourself.

    Tropico 4 is a well-crafted update that is subtly better in almost every respect, including more helpful guidance to total newcomers and a steady stream of in-game mini-missions to keep things interesting. That pesky save bug makes an unwelcome return though and really should have been dealt with by now, but that aside you will be lost in a tropical paradise.

    There's never been a better time to get into politics. [Feb 2012, p.101]
  3. It's a sprinkling of glitter rather than an overhaul. [Feb 2012, p.109]
