With El Presidente set to make his triumphant return later this summer in Tropico 4, he felt it best that those new to the world of tyranny get some practice in beforehand. After applying a firm boot to many a chin, Kalypso has launched Tropico 3 on Live’s Games On Demand. For $19.99, gamers will get to play as the dictator himself in the island-flavored city-building/economic sim.
Developed by Haemimont Games, Tropico 3 brings the series back to its roots and puts players in the role of ‘El Presidente’, the two-bit dictator of a strategically positioned banana republic in the Caribbean during the time of the Cold War. Players assume control of every aspect of island life, deciding whether to unleash the army to secure their power base or lead their people to prosperity as a generous elder statesman. Will absolute power corrupt, or will the humanitarian approach spur progress
