5.0 out of 5 stars El Presidente is back wearing Gold! Oct. 11 2010
By waterbowl - Published on
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
By JimO - Published on
Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun game for the current price (under $10) Feb. 26 2013
By James Hunt - Published on
Verified Purchase
The game follows the same format as the original Tropico. You are the recently installed dictator of a small Caribbean island. Build stuff, make money, try to keep everyone happy. (see my Tropico review for more details)

The game installs without problems. You have to enter the code from the printed manual before you can start playing. You don't have to go online.

Changes from original game:

2 new factions
cars (have to build garages)
several new buildings (zoo, ferris wheel, city dump, etc.)
an annoying radio announcer who complains about everything you do
some new edicts to issue

The major change is you now have an avatar to represent yourself. Select male or female, hair, outfit, glasses, etc. There is very limited customization. You have just one male or female body and face. There are a few options for hair style and outfits. (you keep the same outfit for 20 - 50 years or however long the scenario lasts) You can move yourself to a contruction site to speed up the workers, go to a factory to boost production, etc.

Overall it is a fun tycoon game. The current price (under $10) is reasonable. Play it too long and it gets repetitive but it is the type of game you can come back to and replay.

Note to the designers: In its current format there is not any reason to come out with another sequel. If you converted it to a role playing game with a truly customizable character (as in Oblivion) and a fully explorable 3D world, that would be a different story. Imagine going to the casino and gambling, decorating your palace, leading an expedition into the jungle to look for a lost Mayan city, or leading your armed forces on a raid of the rebels' base - that could be a lot of fun. Highly detailed graphics wouldn't be necessary, you could even have Roger Rabbit style toon characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great game with one maddening fault... Aug. 19 2015
By D. Steinmetz - Published on

Have been a fan of 'Tropico' for years and love this version. Lots of new buildings and the graphics are very good. But it absolutely drives me nuts that I every time I start this game, I have to enter the 25 character product key, or code, to start playing. And that's EVERY time. The game is loaded on a laptop that I never go on-line with, and it's totally unconscionable that the software developers would it make it mandatory that I have to manually enter in this code to start the game. I could understand it if I was going on-line to play others, but that's not the case. For that reason, I can only give it 4 stars. Once you enter in the code, that should unlock the game so you can play it any time you want.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just Discovered a Very Common Issue: Game Does Not Load! May 8 2015
By Mark Uihlein - Published on
Verified Purchase
This game will not load. I get a critical error saying that I do not own a DirectX 9.0 supported video card, which I do. Not much else to say, there are a few "fixes" posted online by various gamers, but nothing from Kalypso themselves. Some of these "fixes" are simple, for example, disable secondary moniters or delete a file in a hidden folder, and some are extremely complex, which no one should have to go through just to play a game (an old one now, 2 sequels later). Anyway, long story short, after 2 hours of trying, still no luck. Tropico 3 will not load. I have Windows 7. I'd suggest NOT buying this game without doing research on whether or not you can run this game.
