So now I've been building my own little Caribbean
island for a while, and the game is really starting to open up. Things I used
to think of as a challenge such as faction tasks and industry tasks now serve
as guidelines to keep me on track and help me build a stronger export income.
Environmentalists are still a pain in the neck with their nonstop complaining, but
at least most of them have left my island. My economy has tripled since I had
to build a weapons factory to export 1000 weapons to “Sheik Sallim”, the leader
of the Middle East. I used to import Iron for a very little price, now weapons
are made out of Iron and sold at very high prices.
It may sound like the game is simply getting easier,
but that’s not the case at all. Productivity is hard to maintain with the need
of so much food for the citizens, especially after issuing the “Food for the
People” edict. Edicts are modifiers that cost a certain amount of money and are
divided into six divisions: Defense, Economy & Tourism, Education, General,
Foreign Affairs and Interior. Each can help out in different situations, but
you’ll have to pay an immediate price and sometimes a monthly or yearly fee.
The game is not only revealing its depth, but also
the sights that can be seen looking at my little island from above are
astounding. Tropico 4 has the most detailed graphics in any strategy game I’ve
ever seen, which is impressive taking into consideration that most of the time you
are looking down from thousands of feet high. The sharp, detailed graphics just
add to the entire experience as Tropico 4 continues to impress me.
