Ahhh, how good it is to be the “El Presidente”. What would become of the idyllic little caribbean island if it wasn’t for the great and just leader! Plan plan the layout of their urban areas, secure jobs, build churches and schools, provide electricity, food, and healthcare, and--finally--export precious goods at the best price (with only the smallest cut for yourself). As El Presidente, your people love you: they cheer when you speak and they may even even set up a golden statue of you. And why wouldn't they? You are the benevolent El Presidente! You want only what is best for your peopel! Sure, every once in a while you must have someone killed and you tolerate no dissent of any kinds but that’s a price worth paying for someone like El Presidente. If only those damn commies and capitalists would leave you alone. Just wait until you get your hands on a nice big red atomic button. Then they'll see who's in charge!
Tropico 3 is a game that puts you into the shoes of a dictator ruling over an island banana republic. It is not only a construction and management simulation, but a political simulation as well, in which you need to create a booming economy, keep your people happy, trade with the world, maintain balance between various factions (communists, capitalists, religious, loyalists), and do other dictatorish stuff. If you’re a fan of city-building games, this should be an instabuy: it looks amazingly good, offers logical and very complex game mechanics, and is filled with tons of politically incorrect humor.
You never know when you’ll need to take control over a small country--prepare now with Tropico 3 Gold Edition for only $9.99 until 14 June 2012 at 10:59 GMT.
