You, as El Presidente, will first take control of the infamous island of Tropico during early colonial times and then guide it through the centuries as the world changes and moves ever forward. You must tackle the changing needs of your people, as well as opposing governments and factions, and thus lay the foundations for your own dynasty. As you move through your years in office you can promote members of your extended family on the island to positions of power: such as ambassador, commanding general or even Supreme Ruler, to ensure your legacy thrives through the eras. As your influence and wealth grows, so do the threats to your burgeoning island superpower. Can you survive both World Wars, prosper through the Great Depression, rule as an iron-fisted dictator through the Cold War and advance your country to modern times and beyond? From the 19th to the 21st century, each era carries its own challenges and opportunities

If I had written this after 1 day's play, I'd have given it 4 stars. I'm still torn between 4 and 5, but I think it will mature into a 5 fairly quickly. My discomfort over interface quirks, and changes from Tropico 4, are what gnaw away at that fifth star. But it deserves 5 for the new level of detail simulation it has added to El Presidente's empire.
Much is the same, but much has also changed.
In a nutshell, a new layer of time evolution has been added.
You now have to start slow and basic, building up to the lucrative industries in the modern age.
In that sense, the game has four "Eras". Start as a colony jumping to the empire's beck and call, until you get enough popular support to declare independence. That starts the World Wars, where you can choose between Axis and Allies. That leads to the Cold War, where you choose between USA and USSR. And finally, the Modern Era, where China, EU and Middle East are added to the superpower mix.
You now have to "research" some things before they can be used. There is enough to get by without, but you'll cripple your island if you do. It's a fairly benign and simple system, though. Nothing like the behemoth of any Civ game. And every time you change era, the research subjects fo the preceding eras are given to you for free.
Edicts are similar, and yet not. They are now linked to eras, and you can only issue edicts from preceding and present eras. A few are enabled by research.
There is also a Dynasty - various events add new members to your ruling family.Read more ›
It's a huge game and therefore quite complex.
It has a many layered menu system giving you a vast amount of choice and control which makes Tropico a delight to play and
I believe it's essential to play through and complete the tutorial first. It took me 3 attempts to master the tutorial but it's worth it when you then graduate to the full game. (I made notes of how to access all of the important things).
The graphics are vivid and detailed and the camera control is superb and easy to operate.
You can succeed in more than one way, for example you can prosper by playing it straight or you can lie and cheat your way to the top.
This is an excellent game and i can't think of any sensible criticisms worth making.
Tropico has a "Sandbox" option which allows you to set up your own parameters and play the game on your own terms or you can complete
the "Campaign Mode". There is also a choice of difficulty settings as well as being able to turn on or off disasters etc.
For fans of this type of game i think Tropico is one of the very best i have ever come across and i heartily recommend it.
"Viva El Presidente"
There are some missed opportunities - transport, for example, remains dull and relatively disconnected with the efficiency of buildings. Roads shift from dirt to concrete. They could have lots of fun with different housing types and styles. Statues have been removed as an option. What about some grandiose mega structures? Uber monuments that need several types of resources? Or building enhancements which had more of a visual impact?
Actually managing housing/happiness/economies has been made harder with the loss of those useful map overlays - previously you could see in a click of the button which buildings had low occupation, or were losing money, allowing you to change your strategies accordingly. Now you have to click through each building to check.Read more ›

This is a good game, but the development system, well for me anyway, too a while to get into. I think I expected it to be a pick up and play kind of sim and I'm sure for others it... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Ab
