The Strategy Gamer has played lots of Tropico 4, and lots of the Modern Times expansion. Looking at Tropico 4 Gold and coming up with something new to say without sounding like the game’s biggest cheerleader is a tall order. The core gameplay is outstanding and between the aesthetic, the voicework and the music, it oozes personality.

Some surprising absences dull the shine of the package, but all in all, Tropico 4 Gold is a great pickup if you missed this game the first time around.
