The political “simulation” game Tropico 3 takes players into an era that’s not often explored by videogames: the Cold War. But rather than place gamers in a U.S. vs. Russia scenario, Tropico 3 instead thrusts players into the ruling seat of a tropical island as “El Presidente.”
As El Presidente, players must decide how and when to use their military, how and when to provide for “the people,” and whether the tropical paradise will become an industrialized nation or a police state. Yep, the decision is all yours in paradise, and this time, it’s not just “tequila or rum.”
Since it’s now November and we’re all longing for some nice tropical weather right about now, we’re giving away one brand-new retail copy of Tropico 3 for Windows PC.
