  1. I picked up Tropico 4 in the Steam Summer Sale and instantly fell in love with it. It’s a great game and the humour makes it all the more enjoyable.

    Multiplayer should be interesting, especially how competitive works, like is based upon military, trade or tourist goals?

    • It’s worth it for the soundtrack alone. Those catch Latin beats.

  2. It is the only game I play on my 360. Providing I don’t get rid of the console I will definitely pick it up

  3. It really doesn’t need a multiplayer element to it. Tropico 4 is iron sheik class
