The world was nearly led to mutually assured destruction, a hell of a lot of money was spent on useless things and tensions were extremely high. Tropico 3, however, takes The Cold War and somehow makes it a lot of fun. This banana republic based city simulator puts you in the shoes of a ruthless (or not so ruthless, you can decide) dictator who is pretty much the underdog on the world stage. Problems have set you back such as your evil twin brother banishing you from his island or your pirate instincts taking over and you have to pick up the pieces, building an industrious society from a few uneducated workers and a lot of faith in the US and USSR to help out."
