Si si . . come visit el Presidente – or else . . . !

[Ed: Tropico 3 landed on Australian soil only a very short time ago (March), at least now we have a chance of exploring the possibilities of our own republic . . .]
Tropico 3 takes a lighthearted, and frankly, quite educational, look at the Cold War through a unique lens: that of a dictator of a small Caribbean island.
And as such, you are on the front lines of the tension, as the Soviet Union and United States try to woo and intimidate you for influence.
In America, we see the Cold War as the global struggle to preserve our way of life by stopping the spread of Communism. It was very black and white.
But Tropico 3 wasn’t made by Americans. It was made by a Bulgarian developer, and distributed through a German publisher.
As such, the point of view in the game, that of a leader being manipulated by both superpowers, is especially poignant.
