Congratulations! You’re the newly-elected, all-powerful “Presidente” of the proud Caribbean nation of Tropico. Taking the reins for another glorious term on your sunny island is all well and good, but do you have what it takes to become a serious player on the world stage?

Whether you choose to rule as benevolent chairman, clever technocrat or corrupt despot, it’s up to you to transform Tropico from amusing banana republic into a 21st century world power worthy of your grand vision in this witty combination of city builder and political simulator.

Key features:

• Create your own paradise by developing Tropico the way you want! Choose from over 100 buildings and turn your island into a top holiday destination, an industrial powerhouse, a police state or all three.

• All of the people, all of the time. Balance the noisy demands of Tropico’s own political factions with the distant rumblings of wealthy superpowers while staying friendly with overseas trading partners.

• Life on a tropical island isn’t all sunshine and piña coladas! Prepare to face natural disasters such as volcanos, tsunamis and hurricanes.

• Take on the challenge of a 20-mission Campaign Mode or enjoy power without responsibility in Sandbox Mode!

• Appoint your favourite citizens to ministerial posts to implement your government program.

• March Tropico into the 21st century with the Modern Times expansion pack: launch a space program, control Internet access and build architectural showpieces such as the diamond cathedral and “Babel Tower”.

An Absolutely Outstanding Game (NO LONGER LOADING ISSUES) - This is certainly the most fun and addicting game that I have ever played. Whilst there are of course degrees of realism, I am rather pleased with how incredibly intricate this game is with politics but very simple to play. The fact that you can determine how you want to develop your nation politically is just absolutely brilliant. If you purchase the game, I would be impressed if you did not find it as exceptional as the rest of the gaming world. What I will say about gaming is: when the concepts present within this game are combined with the first person capabilities of a GTA game, I think it would be almost impossible for people to stop playing. (As others have said) after hours of playing perfectly, in an attempt to reopen the programme and play - there is simply a black screen and many have been unable to continue playing the game. However, I contacted Feral Interactive's support team via email and they responded within an hour. After a few correspondences, they informed me that the problem is associated with Apple's Game Centre. Whilst they are urgently working on fixing this problem, for now they informed me that IF YOU SIGN OUT OF GAME CENTRE (and then reload the game afterward) the game will work perfectly. Accordingly, I did as they suggested and the game is working flawlessly. Feral Interactive's Support Staff is certainly the best support team that I have contacted. So, if you are still having problems, do likewise and the game should work perfectly.

Tropico 4 Gold - Absolutely LOVE this game! Am playing through Modern Times Mission Campaign. Replay ability is superb, outcomes are dependant on choices you make and justifies the price without a doubt. I wish Tropico 5 was available on iMac, I would buy it in a heart beat!! Please hurry…Tropico 5!!

Review by NextToGone

It’s the most exciting build a block game ever! - This one keeps you busy by kicking the blocks around every now and then and demanding your attention. Love all of the different ways to play and all of the different ways to personalize and make different islands. This is what a build a block game should have been all along. I won’t be leaving this game any time soon. Oh, and most importantly, the functionality is perfect. Well worth the money.
