Tropico 3 goes back to the roots of the hit strategy series closely following the original Tropico story-line. The time is yesterday and the Cold War is in full swing. Through means devious and dubious you have seized power in the Caribbean island country of Tropico, where you now rule as the all-powerful "El Presidente". You decide whether you want to use your army to secure your power base in the best traditions of corrupt, unscrupulous tyrants everywhere or lead your people to prosperity in your role as generous elder statesman.

Gamers should find that Tropico 3 is one of the better city-building RTS games to come out in a while, and although it may not be much different from its predecessors and its online "features" don't amount to more than social media "lite," what it does offer is simply solid and polished gameplay. Newcomers to the series will love the depth of Tropico 3, while veterans may be disappointed with the lack of new features, meanwhile appreciating the visual upgrade.

The expected sandbox mode complements Tropico’s excellent campaign, and it’s exactly what you’d expect. All told, one could happily spend as much time here as with any top-shelf simulation or strategy game. Anyone who is willing to deal with the game’s imposing impenetrability will be well rewarded. The Caribbean in the mid-20th century is an unusual setting for a city builder, but Tropico 3 uses its setting to project charm to go along with its excellent gameplay.

Tropico 3 combines a very good city building game with an intriguing political game. The city builder portions are driven by lots of logical choices and consequences that leave the player feeling free to explore their own paths to success. This isn't a game where the associations are so rigid that you end up building the same city again and again. On top of that, the pleasantly unpredictable event system gives you a chance to change your focus and add a little more context to your game.
