Tropico 4 Review Ratings, System requirements and more

Based on 16 critics - Overal Score: 78 / 100

GameInfo: Tropico 4 is a video game developed by Haemimont Games and published by Kalypso Media. It is a construction and management simulation video game, which focuses around a city building simulation. Like the first and third game in the series, the game centers on a customizable main character by the title of "El Presidente" - the dictator that runs the island banana republic.

The game's campaign makes for 20 missions on 10 different maps. They start out with the main character, "El Presidente," having seized control of a certain island. Imports can be monitored as well as exports (whereas the previous games in the series only allowed for coverage on exports). Tropico 4 includes more superpowers. A council of ministers exists which the player can consult on a range of different issues. The player will have to deal with natural disasters and the demands of different political factions each with their own ideological outlook. A Steam only version will be made which includes another island for sandbox mode and another pair of clothes for your Custom El Presidente. It is set to come out for purchase 1 day after the release date. In the new game, there will be 20 new buildings including a shopping mall.

Features a 20-mission campaign
Includes 20 new buildings to use while building your island paradise
Manage six natural disasters, from tornadoes to volcanoes

Critic Score "This review was hard to write, because every time I sat down to write it, I just ended up playing the game rather than writing. There’s a lot going on in Tropico 4 and at first, I didn’t find it a true enough sequel to Tropico 3." Read Full Review

ZTGD My love for Tropico is rather difficult for me to hide, after blurting it out on a podcast a few months back. So when it came time to review Tropico 4, I was the obvious choice. Read Full Review

Game Guys Actor/director Mel Brooks is often quoted as saying "It's good to be the King!" from his 1981 comedy History of the World, Pt. 1. In Kalypso Media's PC title Tropico 4, you don't get to be King, but you do get to be a dictator (which is almost as cool). Read Full Review

IGN "Tropico 4 is my type of game: I can rule people with love or an iron fist, create a society of my own devising, and decide the fate of all those around me. Its complex city management might understandably turn off some players, but it leaves me utterly engrossed. If you take the time to learn the nuances of ruling, you'll find it's good to be el presidente." Read Full Review

AtomicGamer A couple of years ago, Haemimont Games and publisher Kalypso put together a pleasant surprise in Tropico 3, a well-made revival of the classic Caribbean Island sim/strategy game, and already they're back with a sequel. No one expected much of this sequel, since both the developer and publisher changed, and after so much time, this is usually not a formula for success. Read Full Review

DualShockers Tropico 4 exists as something of an enigma. It is both a full game, and yet, it is also merely an expansion pack to Tropico 3. This is not necessarily a bad thing, just a strange one. The Tropico series has always been one that has had a great sense of humor and excellent gameplay. In order to be a great game, Tropico 4 needed to follow in the footsteps of Tropico 3 while proving itself different Read Full Review

Gametrailers Does the fourth chapter bring about a new revolution for Tropico fans? Read Full Review

VGRevolution El Presidente is making his return to the sunny beaches of Tropico in the latest release from Kalypso Media, Tropico 4. Tropico 4 isn’t a far departure from the last version of the game. And while the changes might not be as groundbreaking this time, the additions and tweaks are q welcomed sight. Fans of the series will feel right at home controlling all aspects of their tropical island paradise, from building an economy, juggling third world politics to entertaining tourists. The heart of Tropico hasn’t changed and remains strong. Read Full Review

PCGamer I’m guessing Haemimont’s last Latin American despot simulator didn’t go down too well in Havana or Buenos Aires. In Tropico 3 if you chose Che Guevara as your avatar you got an inspiring workhorse with alcohol and anger issues. Picking Juan Peron meant donning the dinner jacket of a flatulent moron.

This time out Che’s only vice is his paranoia, and super-smart Juan leaves the gaseous emissions to his chemical works. Welcome to the subtly tweaked world of Tropico 4. Read Full Review

Nowgamer PC gaming is dying. At least, that’s what they say. Of course, we know this is a barrel full of nonsense, and its in games like Tropico 4 that proof of otherwise can be found. Read Full Review

Gamedot "If you have Tropico 3, this is not worth the price of a brand new game unless you really enjoyed it. If however you are new to the series, then you may find it to be better value." Read Full Review

Brash Games "Tropico 4 feels awfully familiar. Although there have surely been countless coups, rebellious outbreaks among the general population and career-ending scandals, El Presidente is still alive and well, managing the populous as he sees fit and enjoying life at the top" Read Full Review

WTG "Tropico 4 is a lot like past titles from this series. If you have played Tropico 3, don’t expect anything too different in this game. Tropico 4 takes place on your very own private Carrabin Island and you’re the dictator! This game is similar to games like SimCity in the sense that you’re building and maintaining your own city. But, Tropico doesn’t focus so much on the economy as it does on pleasing certain groups on your island." Read Full Review

IncGamers Viva El Presidente! Currently running for his fourth term in office (or third, if you don't count the markedly different Tropico 2: Pirate Cove), he's clearly doing something right. The city-builder series is going strong, and I have no qualms in stating that Tropico 4 is the best yet. Read Full Review
