Get in touch with your inner dictator!

Command the Caribbean nation of Tropico in this delicious combination of strategic city builder and humorous political simulator. As an all-powerful “Presidente” with a resource-rich paradise in the palm of your hand, it’s your choice to rule with a velvet glove or an iron fist.

Tropico 3: Gold Edition gives you control over everything from your island’s infrastructure to its economy and diplomatic relations with competing superpowers. Balance the noisy demands of Tropico’s hard-to-please political factions with those of your offshore bankers in this tongue-in-cheek recreation of the Cold War in a hot climate.
  • Have it your way! Run Tropico as a tourist mecca, an economic miracle, a police state or all three!
  • Enjoy both the epic challenge of the 15-mission Campaign Mode and the intoxicating freedom of Sandbox Mode.
  • When you’re the corrupt dictator of strategically important island, stuff happens! Wield your influence over every aspect of island life to prepare for everything from natural disasters to nuclear war.
  • Help the people see things your way by “recounting” elections, “calming” rebels and issuing “creative” edicts, such as Burn Books, Bribe Factions and Print Money.
  • Play as your favourite dictator! Pick from a rich list including Che Guevara, Evita Peron and of course, Fidel. Or create your very own strongman by shaping their character, background and beliefs.
  • Create a cult of personality around El Presidente, help compose his silver-tongued speeches, manipulate the media and build monuments in his honor.
  • Enjoy “Absolute Power”, the expansion pack included in Tropico 3: Gold Edition which offers a completely new 10-mission campaign.
  • And always remember - power corrupts, but absolute power totally rocks.

  1. Couldnt get into it
    by daisyborat, USA - Sep 28th 2014

    I just couldnt get into this game. Its a mix of sims, sim city, and maybe some parts of civilization. I cant give a great review of it since the 3 or so times i tried to get into it an play i ended up just leaving it for weeks before comign back to it. Give it a try, it may be what you like. Its not a bad game, has some nice features, didnt come across any bugs myself.

    Simple honest view on politics & world. Betty Boo, TNT is so funny to listen.

    If you're joining a faction in real life, you can have chance to think about how the other factions are thinking.
