About Tropico 3:

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? Find out as gamers become part of the political machinations of Tropico as they determine the fate of this island nation.

Tropico 3: Absolute Power is the first official expansion pack to the critically acclaimed Tropico 3 and invites players back to the island paradise of Tropico and experience unprecedented power as the benevolent (or malevolent) ruler 'El Presidente'. It adds new campaigns, new missions, new islands, unique buildings and new presidential powers to maximize the length and success of your term in power.
