Tropico Reloaded reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Who hasn't always wanted to know if he wasn't a Dictator? In Tropico this is possible, because the Player slips into the Role of the sole ruler of a Micro-instele state and is henceforth allowed to deal with the Economy, Politics and the Environment. But before it starts, the Player is allowed to make his own CV first. Do you want to have been to Harvard University or Moscow University? Was one Generalissimo and obtained the Election by Military Coup? Or is one Really a Farmer who allowed himself to be elected as a Socialist? The compiled CV not only Influences the Sympathy of various political Camps (e.g., Socialists, Capitalists, Militarists. Ecos, etc.) And the Superpowers (Soviet Union and USA), but also on everyday. While the Construction Mogul is allowed to build inexpensive Buildings, the Uniabsolvent enjoys a more efficient Education. Once the CV is put together, it goes straight to govern. In the Beginning, you start with little more than a few Farms. Not even Houses have 30 to 70 Starting Residents who, by the way, are simulated by each Singles from the Game. So it is a question of developing the Economy, for example by setting up farms, Pens and Factories, and At the same time keeping an Eye on the well-being of the Population. This acts promptly on Bars, Food, medical Care, Education and Religion. And notice: Only a satisfied Population refrains from Coups, Riots or Deselections. And if everything doesn't help, a few Generals and Soldiers will help to ensure Order. At Least as long as they are satisfied. Tropico allows you to sort out every single Micro-matter itself. From individual Wages to individual Rent, everything can be determined. Production Chains must be created, political Needs weighed and, for everything, not forgotten about foreign Countries. Otherwise you have faster than you like, an American Gunboat in front of the Door. The Player has a Variety of Options. Do I Put my money where I am Looking at a Socialist Worker and the Peasant state and accept a broad low quality of Life for this? Do I Focus on Industry, and live with Pollution and social Inequality for it? Do I focus on Tourism and prey on the historic Ruins for Tourists from Europe? I Choose the Path of Democracy or rule with a brutal Hand. Tropico is extremely versatile in terms of strategic Possibilities. Above all, the permanent Conflict of interest Of all political Parties is convincing. Even if I am seen in the socialist Camp, it is not possible for me to satisfy the capitalists at the same time and to pay too much Attention to the Religious. After all, the Intellectuals act upon separation of Church and State, after Universities and Schools. This is extremely deep and detailed simulated. Unfortunately, the economic Processes do not approach the Depth of Games such as the Anno series. In particular, my Population is already satisfied if they find a Farm with Corn somewhere. Higher-quality Goods are exported anyway. It is rather the Creation of Tourist Quarters, with nightclubs, stand bathrooms and Casinos. Extreme Miracles management is only challenging if you allow it. If you want to pay the same Wages in all Farms, you have to live with The fact that Corn Farms find just as many Workers as tobacco Farms. However, this Imbalance is hardly noticeable in advanced Play. The Graphics are outdated, of course, but more than functional. About at the Anno 1503 stand without looking ugly. The musical Accompaniment is characterized by simple seemingly Caribbean Music. Nothing special, but nothing bad. Most recently, Tropico convinces above all with a big Shot Of Irony and Wit. And a Persiflage to the, in Truth, very bloody Dictatorships of a Castro or Pinochet. As a result, Tropico simulates island life in a great Way and allows me to really let off steam. I recommend it to everyone as a Strategy Highlight. For me, one of the best Games I've ever played.
