Thanks to Mack the Knife for finding a new review
on Tropico 2: Pirate Cove from Adrenaline Vault.
Here is an excerpt from the closing summary:As an intellectual toy, Tropico 2 is fascinating and detailed; as a game, it's enormously addictive. Quite different from the original Tropico, even as it sits on the same basic foundations, its additions are interesting and challenging enough to justify the purchase for strategy fans even if it's too esoteric and complex to attract newcomers to the genre.
Running an island full of slaves and pirates is a unique twist, one that will satisfy anyone who laments the endless catalogue of near-identical RTS titles that the god-game genre has become. It will also annoy the right kind of people, by being morally questionable and technically excellent at the same time.Click here
