Love It!!!

I Love the game Tropico. The only downside is the ease of play. Its REALLY hard but once you get past the hardness of it, Its great fun! My charachter is chomping on a cigar and sometimes he smokes a pipe but other then that there is no bad smoking. Overall I <3 Tropico 4!!

Good for kids.

Although there are some violent parts (you can order people to be killed, and send armies to places) there is screaming but no blood/gore. It can teach them how to handle money and business skills, but could teach them that being someone who dictates and does bad actions for no reason is good.

Great city bulider

Great city builder and an awesome alternative to SimCity. Even though this game allows homosexual marriage, that is an option. You do not need to allow homosexual marriage if you don't want to. CIgars are present and violence is frequent, but you don't control any people in the violence. Overall, great game but a little hard for younger children, let your teen get it though.

Not what i was hoping.

When i purchased this game i was hoping for a sim city style game. What i got was a game that promotes communism and compromised my morals. In this game it is largely over land command game but the devs thought it well to give you a character. You may think this is good however the man they give you is the dictator Fidel Castro, who you use to bully people around and scare businesses. The other point is in the game you can initiate executive orders that largely impact the game. One of these is to allow Homosexual marriage. In closing no christian should allow there child to play this since it clearly supports Homosexual Marriage.
