Advantages: very fun and replayable
Disadvantages: confusing to start with
Developer: Haemimont Games

You gain control of a tropical island and responsable for everything from controling the countries treasury to insuring the people are satisfied.
The game is a mix of sim city and the sims. You have to build the city, control exports and delve into the world of international politics. Do you side with the US or USSR or just focus on your own island. Either way whatever you do has an effect on the outcome of your reign. Become a dictator and focus on miltary control or be at one with the people and attend their every need. It is all entirely up to you.
There are 15 missions to get you started aswell as a number of sandbox maps (free play) and challenges.
Where the sims part comes into play is pretty cool. You get to create your own avatar from scratch. Choosing his body, clothes, hair style and even his characteristics such as making him an alcholic or a military man.
I picked up this game just a few days ago, but been meaning to get it since i played the demo.
My first impressions where "finally a sim city for the xbox360" and enjoyed the in depth tutorial. But then i tried to go it alone in a sandbox game and found out how tough this game can really be.
I do advise playing at least the first mission and possibly the second first.
As i finally got into my stride i started to really enjoy what i was playing. I managed to build a succesful island and added an eliment of tourism. The smile that came to my face when i built my first airport basically summed up my enjoyment at playing Tropico 3.
The soundtrack is pretty good aswell and based on the latin genre, but from what i can tell is limited.
As for the controls, yes they are very confusing at first, but im getting used to it and they really are not as bad as some people make out.
If you liked the old simcity games and love the sims then this is the game for you.
Summary: Great relaxing construction simulation
