Sorry! That's only one opinion.
It is no more political than economic. You play to manipulate rather than please the people.
I covered the mistake about "remake" previously.
I'm not sure why you wouldn't call t3 a remake.. that is basically the game in spirit. It plays very much like an easier version of t1, but yes the new Cars change the game play and a host of other little differences, But the spirit of the game is very much the same. t4+MT not so much, atleast to me,.. as i said the game plays much more like a macro city builder, with political side features..
But i will disagree about the politics side in t1. T4 you can compeltly ignore people's needs and still play the game for 50 years without much difficulty.. Even in the campaign senarios if you understand the game you can really do what ever you want outside of a few little things to keep rebels from poping. I often don't build any residency or churches for 20 years, just cause it is fun.. Shack Island is awesome!
Don't want to build houses, No problem, Find churches a waste of time.. Who needs them?? entertainment? That is just a communist plot!! In T1, if you skipped all housing, churches, and entertainment,, there is no possible way to win the first election, atleast that i have found in any campaign style mission, trust me, i have tried.. Sandbox, perhaps as i have only played it a couple of times. All these years i've spent trying to beat all the missions. But even if you forbid elections, you would most likely have a coup, or get invaded if you ignored all 3.. Cause with out entertainment+housing, your troops will not remain loyal atleast any way i have found.. T3-T4, they can though it can be a we bit of a challenge with zero luxuories.
that is why i say it is much more politcal. You can call it manipulation if you like, but it all boils down to making people happy, and it is just easier in t3-4.
Besides, T3-T4, have avatar, and speaches, which is another big difference,. That helps a ton to keep your islanders in check.

Sounds like a good reason to buy the first 3 parts also, I'm sure there's a package available somewhere with them all included.
I heard there is some sorta bundle with all.. But i'm not sure as i have never seen it listed anywhere.
that said, you are most likely a steam user, as per your first post.. So if you want, i'm sure steam has T3+ abosolute power expansion bundled.
Tropico "reloaded" Is T1+expansion, and T2.. Steam may have that as well, Or you can get a DRM free version from http://www.gog.com
