Tropico 3 (Xbox 360)
Advantages: Great gameplay, excellent graphics and sound, good controls, brilliant depth of game
Recently I was on Amazon browzing through their selection of games when I spotted a game called Tropico 3 for the pc and noted it had some excellent reviews so took a look at the game information and thought it sounded like it could be quite interesting and so checked on Game and discovered I could get this for the XBOX 360 so had to pick this gem up.
What the game is about: This game is set back in the 1960's and sees you take over an island and develop this to become a huge success. Sounds like Sim City in essance but this game sees you as one of the many famous dictators and you are developing the island of Tropico to be one of the best in the Caribbean through deciding on where your investment needs to be placed whether it be in housing, industry, farming, tourism, fishing, etc.
The development of your island though is not as simple as just developing buildings but more so the fact you need to develop relations with different groups of people on your island and the USSR and USA to ensure that you are able to keep power. This involves diplomacy, government decisions on tax, pollution, reading schemes and more to help to pacify your people to ensure they don't overthrow your government or the US/USSR come to free your people.
This game is simply an excellent game in both design, development and delivery with excellent graphics, sound effects, game depth and most important of all for the consoles is that the control system works brilliantly.
The game is both fun, challenging and above all addictive and will keep you entertained for hours, with me having been playing the game loads and still learning as I go with things like the ability to buy in specialists for certain jobs, political alliances and more taking time to get used to but no matter what you simply keep going back in order to try to overcome this and win over your people and make a success of your island.
- Excellent gameplay and control system
- Brilliant graphics and sound
- Great depth of game
- Amazing presentation
This is a game I can't recommend highly enough and really think is worth a try for all but you do need patience as you will need to try a fair few times before lasting.
Summary: Simply a stunning game that everyone should try and love
