Summary: Tropico is a slow moving game but is completely addictive. You can easily blow a few hours without realizing it just watching your little guys scurry around and trying to get everyone off their butts into a job. I wish the menus were a little more intuitive and it were easier to navigate, but if you're into the SIMCITY type games you'll love this.
Super duper fun for Intellectual game players. Expect to do some reading/problem solving

Summary: I was looking for a SimCity style game and started reading reviews. I played the original Tropico on Xbox briefly once and liked it. It also had a lot of good reviews compared to SimCity and many of the other strategic building games. Tropico 4 had better reviews than Tropico 5, so I opted to download this one. I love it!! I love the humor, the art, & the strategy involved.
Summary: Nothing much to say! the Best Game in the series! and the best City building game I ever played! spent tons of hours playing this amazing game! the down side, is that the downloadable content is for USA only! and its a huge Bomer! I see no reason why other people except Americans cant get it?!
Summary: I enjoyed a few rounds of Tropico. Then I realized I could use the same cookie-cutter strategy for every scenario, and I lost interest. There's no strategic depth. You can beat every scenario by building factories and importing raw materials for them to process -- you buy materials for $X, process them and sell them for $X times 10, and you have an infinite supply of money over time.
Summary: Modern Times is a DLC for Tropico 4, that lets everything get more modern. New buildings and a longer time line in particular. The buildings are visually very pretty, but show up way too early. It nags me if a 1960es neighborhood in a carribian dictatorship looks like a 2015 skyline from a financial centre in East Asia. Maybe I'm just strange, but I'd like my 60es slum to at least remind me of City of God.
