Product Details

Product Description

Amazon.ca Product Description

Comprehensive campaign with 15 different missions. A variety of business sectors: Tourism, petroleum, mining, agriculture, etc. A timeline editor allows you to create your own fictive historical events or enter real ones. Avatar function: Wander the island as El Presidente and change the course of play. Political speeches, edicts and "other" means of influence.

Product Description

The time is yesterday and the Cold War is in full swing. Through means devious and dubious you have seized power in the Caribbean island country of Tropico, where you now rule as the all-powerful "El Presidente". You decide whether you want to use your army to secure your power base in the best traditions of corrupt, unscrupulous tyrants everywhere or lead your people to prosperity in your role as generous elder statesman. No matter whether you turn Tropico into a vacation paradise, a police state or a modern industrial nation - you will always have to defend your actions before your people! Wander through Tropico as El Presidente in order to intimidate political opponents, hold populist speeches or just to enjoy your country's own Caribbean flair. Don't forget to keep a sharp eye on the dangers and side-effects of your absolute power! Danger lurks on every corner, be it militant revolutionaries bent on installing a communist junta, or the machinations of the superpowers USA and the Soviet Union, both of whom would like to see a more amenable ruler in strategically important Tropico! History takes its course with events such as the Cuba crisis, papal visits and other actual decisive historical events. The only question is whether or not you can play a role in that history!

5.0 out of 5 stars El Presidente is back wearing Gold! Oct. 11 2010
By waterbowl - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game does not deserve a 1 star for a rating! It is a fabulous and fun game!

I won't review the full game, as it's been reviewed before, and this is the gold edition. Instead, I will be reviewing the product being sold as the gold edition, keeping it short and simple so you know what you're getting.

The Good:

*No DRM! The game comes with a serial that you put in when you first install the game. It does not use internet activation. It does not have limited installs. All that it requires is the serial number put in after you first time you start the game. Play the game on all your computers without worry! Thank you!
*It comes with the original Tropico 3 and it's expansion, Absolute Power. They are both on 1 DVD, which makes it a whole lot easier to install and back-up.
*It comes with a full fleshed out manual! I'm disapointed in todays games, a lot never seem to come with manuals. This game comes with a full printed manual that you can read and learn about the game. Lets face it, manuals rock!
*The game comes fully patched with the latest patch.

The Bad:

To be honest, after playing for over 30 hours, I have yet to find anything bad about the game. It is one of the funnest city sim building type games I have ever played. I am finding it very addciting! I missed out on Tropico 1 and 2, and now I'm sorry I did! Tropico is truly a great city sim building game, with it's own unique humor on you being El Presidente.

If you want more information on Tropico 3, read some of the reviews for Tropico 3 here on Amazon. All that I can say, is that The Tropico 3 Gold Edition is a great deal and a great buy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable game but somewhat monotonous after a bit. Jan. 25 2011

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I've played all of the Tropico games and Tropico3 has excellent graphics and is a beautiful game. However after a while it gets very predictable even before playing through all the scenarios. One thing I definitely dislike about the game is the fact that it seems designed to make you struggle for cash no matter what you do or how you play. (Frankly, I get enough of that in real life.) It seems that expenses are sometimes set to drain the treasury no matter what one does. That is not fun in my book.

I'm glad I didn't pay full price for the game but for what I did pay it is worth many hours of amusement, I just think game play could have been improved to match the beautiful graphics. The Gold Edition is a good buy for those who like these kinds of games.

I love the first game tropico and have dissapointed with tropico 2, but now we back to the basic rules of dictatorship. Now I have plenty hours perfectioning my presidencial skill levels.
This is a really good game with an excelent music too.

I bought this with Tropico 4 as a gift for my sister - sounds like she loves it! Make sure your computer is compatible with it though!
5.0 out of 5 stars Recommand this game!!! Dec 6 2013

This is one of my favorite video game franchise (Tropico) This is a pure simulation game. You must run an economy as a dictator in the tropical islands. It sounds nerdy, but I love having to deal with supply and demand, running a budget, and keeping citizens happy! If you love games like Sim City or Sid Meier's Civilization this is a game for you. I absolutely recommend this game to simulation fans. Also a wise note you do not need to play the original games to enjoy this one. Also make sure to play the tutorial at least once or twice!
