Tropico 3 Gold
Get ready to experience the complete Caribbean island paradise adventure as the highly acclaimed strategy/management game Tropico 3 and the official expansion pack Absolute Power come together in the ultimate Gold Edition.
Tropico 3 Gold sees you take charge of your very own Caribbean island as the newly installed ‘El Presidente’. How you run your country is down to you – do you turn Tropico into a vacation paradise, a police state or a modern industrial nation? Will you be a Dictator or man of the people? – The choice is yours but whatever your decision you will always have to defend your actions before your people!
The time is yesterday and the Cold War is in full swing. Through means devious and dubious you have seized power in the Caribbean island country of Tropico, where you now rule as the all-powerful "El Presidente".
You decide whether you want to use your army to secure your power base in the best traditions of corrupt, unscrupulous tyrants everywhere or lead your people to prosperity in your role as generous elder statesman.
No matter whether you turn Tropico into a vacation paradise, a police state or a modern industrial nation you will always have to defend your actions before your people! Wander through Tropico as El Presidente in order to intimidate political opponents, hold populist speeches or just to enjoy your country's own Caribbean flair.
Don't forget to keep a sharp eye on the dangers and side-effects of your absolute power! Danger lurks on every corner, be it militant revolutionaries bent on installing a communist junta, or the machinations of the superpowers USA and the Soviet Union, both of whom would like to see a more amenable ruler in strategically important Tropico!
History takes its course with events such as the Cuba crisis, papal visits and other actual decisive historical events.
The only question is whether or not you can play a role in that history!
