Requires the base game in order to play.

The world is changing and Tropico is moving with the times ~ geographical powers rise and fall and the world market is dominated by new players with new demands and offers -- and you, as El Presidente, face a whole new set of challenges. If you are to triumph over your naysayers you will need to gain as much support from your people as possible. Your decisions will shape the future of your nation, and more importantly, the size of your off-shore bank account.

Tropico 4 expands on the gameplay of the previous game with new political additions ~ including more superpowers to negotiate with, along with the ability to elect ministers into power to help get your more controversial policies passed. But remember to keep your friends close and your enemies closer as everyone has an agenda! Your political mettle will be thoroughly tested, as new natural disasters will have the populace clamoring for you and your cabinet to help them recover from some of the worst Mother Nature can dish out.

Tropico 4 also brings a new level of social interaction with the addition of Facebook and Twitter integration (Windows PC version only). Post comments on Twitter direct from the game and have updates go out when you complete missions or unlock new achievements. You can even take screenshots of your burgeoning island and post your dream creation on your Tropico 4 Facebook page and compare your interactive Dictator Ranking on the online leaderboards.

  • New campaign consisting of 20 missions on 10 new maps
  • 20 new buildings including Stock Exchange, Shopping Mall, Aqua Park and a Mausoleum to El Presidente
  • Six new interactive disasters including volcanoes, droughts and tornadoes
  • Council of Ministers – selected citizens to ministerial posts in the government to help push through your more controversial decisions
  • National Agenda – receive objectives from Tropican factions, foreign geopolitical powers or opportunities relating to current island events such as ongoing disasters
  • Facebook and Twitter integration (PC-only features)
  • Screenshot gallery – take screenshots of your tropical paradise and share on your Facebook page (PC- only Feature)

Tropico 4 takes much of what worked in previous editions and expands on it. It maintains its fun, addictive gameplay, while adding different challenges. It's not a perfect game, though, but its many pluses more than compensates for its flaws.

Pros:
Fun, addictive gameplay
A revamped "traits" system.
No longer required to have 2 negative traits
More industrial buildings to build.
More tourist options
Wider variety of options when creating an avatar
More missions for your island, including opportunities to get money from and praise from countries other than the US or USSR.
Ability to help modify island conditions through buildings such as horticulture center
Ability to "import" raw materials to your island
Ability to build and select your own 'council of ministry'

Cons:
Graphics aren't that much better than Tropico 3
Required to have an "account" to sign in and play
Voice acting is still repetitive and slightly annoying
Still no way to create a bridge if you have multiple land masses on your map.

Overall:
Very fun game. There are some slight drawbacks to it (I REALLY dislike needing to create an "account" to play a game that isn't an MMO), but overall there are enough new things in Tropico 4 to make it a very fun, and worthwhile, experience. I especially love the addition of "missions" within the campaign that give you extra effects and bonuses.

Note: I haven't tried any of the expansions, though, so I don't know how they care.

I love the whole Tropico franchise except T2. If you love city building games but tire of the same ole euro scene I highly recommend this title. Buy the DLC as well (I don't know if GF offers it or if DLC is included with DL). Beautiful game and great Latin music accompanys it.
