What is Tropico 3 like?
I'm thinking of buying the $4.99 bundle. I already have Tropico & Tropico 2, but haven't played them much. What is Tropico 3 like? is it best with the DLC? or would I be happy with the base game?

Tropico 3 is a great game. I have Tropico 3 and Tropico 4 and between them i think i've put in about 100 hours. It is a great city building game with limitless possibilities. If you are a graphics junkie, Tropico 3 has better graphics than Tropico 4 but 4 has more more content. The DLC is good because in Absolute Power you can get more buildings and commands and stuff. Over all out of ten I give Tropico 3 a 8.75 and Tropico 4 a 8.25 Hope this helps ;)

I decided to buy Tropico 4 and 2 DLC, the quick dry cement and pirate heaven. I might buy Modern Times during the Summer Sale if its on sale then. I want to try the game without it first.
Thanks for the feedback.

Much like Tropico 1 with updated graphics. A great game!

I didn't care for Tropico that much. I didn't quite get it like I do Tropico 4. I spent 3 hours just playing the first scenario in Tropico 4 and loved every minute of it. I couldn't quite understand the first tropico.

I've owned a non-steam version of Tropico 4 for quite some time now. I REALLY LOVE IT. Then, i decided to buy the full Tropico 3, and i can't really seem to like so much. The user interface is clunky and messy. The menus are weirdly sorted and the music isn't even half way to the 4th installment.

Dunno if it is because i've got used to the newest one that i find the previous rubbish, but i just can't get as hooked to the third as i got to the fourth. Still worth, though.

Which do you reccommend for someone who loved the 1st game?

sim city 3000 could do? lol, joking. Tropico 3 has a clumsy GUI, not that good background music and the scenarios lack a bit of room, as the buildings are sized wrong (too large). If you could solve all those problems, that would be a perfect game... oh, wait, Tropico 4 is just like that!

Thanks for your input. :P I'm torn between whether I should just buy the first one on Steam for the nostalgia factor or upgrade to the fourth.
Sim City 2000 and 3000 were my favorite games when I was younger lol. Tropico had it's differences with its unique political depth and context though

If you're a true Tropico 1 fan, find and buy a CD-ROM just to show off when friends come to visit ;)

I'd just as soon buy Tropico 1 & 2 on GOG and burn a DVD of it. Ditto for Tropico 3.
