In short, this is an enjoyable game. However, if you're considering getting it because you really liked Tropico 4, I would say stick with Tropico 4. There are a couple of ways that T5 improves upon T4, which I will list below, but for the most part T5 has fewer options and is less interactive - in short, far oversimplified. T4 is an overall better game. Pros: -Research that opens up possibilities during a specific age, as opposed to everything of that age automatically becoming available. -City planning made easier with a well-conceived grid that takes the guesswork out of building and road placement. -Military made more useful/necessary by increased rebel attack-rate when citizens unhappy (could be seen as a con, but it's just more incentive to try and treat your people well!) Cons: -Fewer building options. -Can't have multiple types of the same building with different specializations. -Adjusting wages is a hassle that should have a fix-all option (it does, but in my experience it does nothing). -Elections just happen, there's no chance to make a speech or anything. -Interactivity lessened by only featuring dialogue/quest options from major political figures, no longer interacting with movement figureheads, like the environmentalists or nationalists and so forth. There are other cons, but once again, they're all relative to Tropico 4, so if you haven't played Tropico 4 you'll think nothing of it. But I would just say that the pros of Tropico 5 can easily be sacrificed for the far superior Tropico 4.
Tropico 5 ceases to be a continuist and that its meager new mechanics do not contribute too much to the formula we have already seen in the previous one, but still it remains a unique proposal. With its slight increase of difficulty and its commitment to the times and the multiplayer will amply entertain the most fans of the titles of management and construction of cities.
This game is a lovely game, although I have enjoyed many of the games in the Tropico series. This one added nice graphics update among the new addition of the more detailed government system and dynasty system. I have enjoyed going through all the years and slowly progressing through the eras as well. This has potential to be played and just forget about the time while your playing. Graphics: 8 - It is a very beautiful game, even with graphics turned down to the lowest it still looks great. Sound: 8 - Lovely music, which has always been a great staple in this series. Gameplay: 9 - Game mechanics are interesting, different ways to build your country. Story: Not much of a story to be honest apart from continuing your dynasty and maybe doing scenarios.
Tropico 5 is the new entry in the Tropico series. It's a "dictator simulator". You're in charge of the island of Tropico, a country in South America that is ruled by you and you only. This sequel is a lot better than the fourth episode. The visuals are better and the gameplay has been improved. Now you can become the ally of foreign countries during different time period and the economical side of the game has been completly revamped. The new dynasty system gives you the opportunity to rise children as your potential heirs, sending them study in western countries etc.... Now it's also possible research technologies. It's a big addition to the game that gives it a whole new layer of complexity. Tropico 5 is an excellent management game for every players that secretly crave to be a dictator and this collection contains all the DLCs!
