Tropico, the game where you could play out all your Castro Fantisies, now that was a very fun game, and Tropico 2 was just as good playing as a pirate, and now we have Tropico 3



And it looks like theres even Thirdish person control of "El Presidente" (You)

No longer are you just a sky god like before but an actual character you can control, from the hands on review it seems like the game is pretty much the same except more in depth and amazing graphics, i spent hours upon hours playing the original Tropico and trying all kinds of playstyles

Oppresive Commie Dictator was my favorite, whenever i just felt like it i would send my troops out agaisnt the populace and shoot them down just because i could, and i loved fighting the rebels just to crush them and having the prospect of facing a huge rebel force, and even better was a coup or a popular revolt(very rare) in which a giant battle would play out near my palace, and what i really liked is naming a family after mine (making sure they were a military family of course, farmers would be boring) and watch their progress, and see just how they would fight in a coup or revolt, how many kids they would have and make sure they were a prominent family, and watching Sons Kill Fathers satisfied something deep inside my sick twisted mind, and i cant wait to see if Tropico 3 lives up to the original
