Played for like an hour yesterday. Graphics are stunning IMO.

Though I expanded far too quickly, so my island is always in debt

However, the bank prevents you from spending anymore once your down $10,000, unlike the real world where they can amass billions

I had a bit of a hard time running the graphics at 1680x1050 on High details and VSync On with a Asus EAH4870.

Think it was the Vsync. Whenever I moved around the island I could see some lagging.

I played for about 30 mins. Didn't feel any different then the first game. It looks more like a 3D version of the first Tropico with a few new features.

Reminds me a bit of Simcity 3000 vs Simcity 4.

Don't get me wrong. This is a truly enjoyable game.
