Tropico 4 (special edition) Xbox360 £14.99 @ Zavvi

Found 27th Nov 2011
Blimey, I think this has only been out a month! Fairly well recieved looking at some of the reviews. Cheapest price by far.

PC version also available for £12.95, still best price but not as big a saving - see link in first post.

The world is changing and Tropico is moving with the times geographical powers rise and fall and the world market is dominated by new players with new demands and offers and you, as El Presidente, face a whole new set of challenges. If you are to triumph over your naysayers you will need to gain as much support from your people as possible. Your decisions will shape the future of your nation, and more importantly, the size of your off-shore bank account.

Tropico 4 expands on the gameplay of the previous game with new political additions including more superpowers to negotiate with, along with the ability to elect ministers into power to help get your more controversial policies passed. But remember to keep your friends close and your enemies closer as everyone has an agenda! Your political mettle will be thoroughly tested, as new natural disasters will have the populace clamoring for you and your cabinet to help them recover from some of the worst Mother Nature can dish out.

Tropico 4 also brings a new level of social interaction with the addition of Facebook and Twitter integration (Windows PC version only). Post comments on Twitter direct from the game and have updates go out when you complete missions or unlock new achievements. You can even take screenshots of your burgeoning island and post your dream creation on your Tropico 4 Facebook page and compare your interactive Dictator Ranking on the online leaderboards.


New campaign consisting of 20 missions on 10 new maps
20 new buildings including Stock Exchange, Shopping mall, Aqua Park and a Mausoleum to El Presidente
Six new interactive disasters including volcanoes, droughts and tornadoes
Council of Ministers – selected citizens to mimisterial posts in the government to help push through your more controversial decisions
National Agenda – receive objectives from Tropican factions, foreign geopolitical powers or opportunities relating to current island events such as ongoing disasters
Trading system – import and export goods to/from other nations to boost your economy or production
Special Edition contains - 3 bonus maps and 3 avatar costumes.

PC version also available £12.95 here

I've not played 4 but I have thoroughly enjoyed the previous versions, seems like a great deal to me
Great find, thanks. At last some decent 'Mega Monday' deals.
Bought it yesterday (on OnLive for £15 - not bothering to post it as a deal though as it'll go colder than the arctic) and I have to say I'm loving it. I played Tropico 3 for about 50 hours, and this seems to be quite subtle in terms of new features. Still love it.
Heat added. Great price!

I fancy a lot of games to drop like a stone in price, simply too many released over OCT-DEC!!!
How in the name of christ is this not on PS3? Seems like a missed opportunity there...
amazing price, i loved tropico 3 and thought i would wait till 4 comes down in price, never expected it this soon though! lots of heat added
4 is pretty much the same as 3. You can either see tropico 4 as what tropico 3 should have been, or another way you can look at it is that tropico 4 is pretty much an expansion pack of 3, theres that little difference.

However if you have never played 3, definitely get this game, its incredibly fun

Availability: Usually dispatched within a month

Says Availability: In stock | Usually dispatched within 24 hours for me on both formats oO
Thanks, just ordered,

says dispatched within 24 hours

Yes, it seems that availability has changed now.
Great find. Heated
This looks like good fun, and like it also needs a bit of strategy, while not being tedious/nerdy/boring haha.

If anyone is on the fence, there appears to be a demo on XBL of 3 and 4... downloading now.
Back to a month delivery now unfortunately, but still going to order it. I tried the XBL demo last night and seems like a good laugh and for once a strategy game that'll work well on a console.
ordered , hoping this will arrive for xmas
Anyone had theirs dispatched yet? Ordered sunday - still on processing.

Same here, ordered when it still showed in stock - 24hr. Better not be another sham where they start sending the cancelled emails.

EDIT: when you drill further into the order mine has changed from 'awaiting stock pick' to 'awaiting despatch'.
