Quoted from Tropico 2: Pirate Cove Reviews:
Check out these quotes from Tropico 2: Pirate Cove reviews & previews
"Any fan of management games is bound to enjoy the game, and it's a definite candidate for causing some very, very late nights in front of your PC screen. Graphics whores will inevitably be put off by the old school look and feel of the title, but if you can get past that, this is one of the best god games the PC has seen in quite a while."
"I have played many city-building games over the years, but this one almost suffers because of its pirate theme, showing you by glaring contrast all the raucous fun that you're missing. There's a reason why people buy NBA Street instead of NBA Accountant. Tropico 2 is still fun, but should this trend in pirate gaming continue, we'll soon be seeing games like Barnacle Scraper Deluxe and Sail Mending Xtreme."
"This is a game that I can recommend to only certain people. If you liked Tropico 1 a lot, or the concept of isle management then you’ll most likely find this game to be an interesting alternative. Fans of pirates will probably find the game to be humorous and somewhat historically interesting, but in the long run this isn’t a game that’ll be remembered for a very long time."
"...the original game's creators have had some input and applied their talents to some specific areas, creating, for example, the new game's cinematics."
"Fans of Tropico may wish that this were a more direct descendant of the original, and those who like the new pirate theme may wish Frog City had built a new game from scratch."
