I have been a huge fan of the Tropico franchise from the beginning. And I love this one just as much as the rest. The building and city planing is great, I also kind of like the political aspect of it too, plus they introduce real world concepts in a humorous way through the games dialogue. So yes I would recommend this game.

This a review mostly based on technical issues and camera controls that drove me nuts, not so much gameplay, I really wanted to like this.

The camera controls are horrible, and the resolution was buggy, the top of the screen was "outside of my screen". I was excited to play this but instead it was 30 min of research how to fix the problems I had and I found nothing, and almost an hour of gameplay wholy consistent with irritation towards the camera controls.

When I watched videos of the game, I see now why they don't really spin the camera...

This game is fun but quite limited. I managed to squeeze some time out of it, but overall it gets monotonous quite quickly. The gimick of you playing as a dictator start of rather funny but, the humour slowly becomes cute before descending into repetitive and annoying. The ceilling of what you can build and advance to felt far too low and also quite restrictive. The choices you may make, again while funny initially, don't seem to do all too much outside of changing some numbers. It's a weak city building/management game wrapped in gimicks. While I did have fun, I cannot reccomend it on account of how incomplete this game felt.

+Fun for a bit
-Not worth the money
-Low ceiling for progress and creativity in the game
-Gimicky


I cannot say the experience was bad, i did not dislike playing it by any means. Rather, it was lackluster across all facets of gameplay.

Overall:
5.0/10.0

So I've been playing this game for a little while now, about a day since this review was posted and I wanted to say that it's a good game but I wish there was more content to it, like more expacs. Granted, I've not actually played any expacs that are out for it already so I may have to make a purchase to see how it is with them.

Part of the game requires a lot of strategic thinking to include some knowledge of the economy. Even though I went into it with little to no knowldge of such a thing, I still learned and enjoyed the game. I had to watch a few playthroughs for my settings and they really did help.

At any rate, I still recommend people play this game.

This game is pretty close to being good but it falls down in 2 major areas.
The tutorial for the game is terrible. It spends more time talking about basic building mechanics than explaining how any of the metrics of citizen happiness and values work. It basically just mentions that they exist and that they affect your popularity with the citizens. It doesn't explain how far the numerous "nearby" bonuses extend, It doesn't explain how to get useful information from the statistic tracking almanac. Most of what I know of the mechanics of the game I got from reading guides.
The other main issue is that the citizen AI makes almost no sense whatsoever in its decision making.
My current island has 100s of homeless and jobless people despite there being more than enough houses and jobs for everyone. I have homeless people who work in the nuclear power plant and jobless people who live, also homeless, next to open entry level jobs. I have open college and high school level jobs and virtually nobody in either school. I have dozens of farms and several food imports but citizens starving regularily. I have quadrupled the number of couriers in the city but I still dont have materials and goods moving anywhere.
These issues and the happiness meters they reflect upon are so nonsensicle that I am convinced they have a randomized element to them.
I have heard that these issues are almost entirely fixed in one of the DLCs but that's arguably even worse because it means that they are effectively holding the functional game hostage for another $5.
Avoid this game

At its core it’s very much a city builder, where economic concerns, politics, trade routes, production, power, roads, revenue and all that other good city stuff is the name of the game. But by putting players on a tropical island and in control of a dictator in charge of a banana republic of sorts it adds a unique context that is played entirely for laughs, which is something the infectious calypso music spells out immediately. As the fifth entry in the series, Tropico 5 doesn’t stray too far from the formula established so far, it adds the prerequisite new things expected of a sequel, some of which work, and some of which, well, need a little more work.

Despite being the same game as before, and before, it's not finished and it seems to be a vehicle for exhorbitantly priced DLC. Skip this one and see if they make it as good as Tropico 4 or 3 or 2 when they release exactly the same game yet again next year.

Is it different? Absolutely. Yet, as a long time fan of the series, I can honestly suggest this game. (I got it on sale for $10, and I suggest you get in on sale as well). I really just enjoy the content of this series, and this game is a decent enough continuation of the series.


A few things off the top of my head...
  • The UI is different than Troico 4, but one eventually get's use to it.
  • The graphics have improved thanks to utilizing DX11
  • Almost every building is upgradable, and you can upgrade some all at once (if you have the money)
  • Dynasty Members, not really all that great, but you can pick and choose traits to suit your needs (and use them as managers)
  • There are tons of buildings to choose from.
  • Along with the eras you progress through, you have to do research to unlock different things (buildings, edicts, etc.)
  • Farms are more contained and you know where the crops will grow (as opposed to randomly around the building)

    If you enjoyed the first 4 Tropico games (Like me), then I'd be shocked if you didn't find at least something enjoyable about this game.

    *I agree with most everyone about the DLC being horribly overpriced and refuse to buy them (I bought standalone before the Complete collection was released). Maybe if they bundle them at a huge discount...

I think this would be great if you bought it and it already came with the water expansion. This is a great game but if you want a modern version of Tropico I suggest buying Tropico 4 with the modern times expansion because Tropico 5 is already modern but costs more money. By all means though, I suggest this game and you can buy it if you want.

I enjoyed it quite a bit. It's a bit different than CIties skylines but I would say that for me it has atleast the same entertainment value if not better. Tropico 5 was definitely better than EA's simcity.
I must add that Tropico 5 is more difficult, atleast I found myself struggling with economy on my first two runs. This is because you rarely receive constant income like in other city building games, but instead you receive money when trade ships show up and buy your resources, and the income you get from a single ship is very irregular. For example one day you might receive 1k for selling bananas and weeks or months later when next ship arrives 10k for jewelry. And meanwhile you are constantly losing money to upkeep your production facilities.

Tropico 5 is quite solid actually, no bugs or anything that I've experienced. Only thing I was a bit annoyed about was that everytime autosave happened my game went to a loading screen and after that for some reason wanted to change my dynastys name, so I had to press cancel and second loading screen followed. But that can be avoided by reducing or disabling autosaves in options. Loading screens were also fairly short so I wasn't too bothered really.

It should be noted that I haven't played tropico 4. and many reviewers seem to say that it's better, so check that out before you buy and make your own conclusions.
It is quite common that Tropico 5 can be bought at discount, especially outside steam, but I can recommend it for full price as well if you like building games like I do.

While I found Tropico 4 the pinnacle of the series, I enjoyed Tropico 5 as another aspect to the game play that has made the series a darling. Tropico 5’s timing seems slower paced than 4, but the consistent humor and different ways to build your nation is never repetitive.

The only thing I wished was better was the DLC package. The DLCs are more add-ons rather than enhancements to the game. For example, the Waterborne expansion allows me to utilize the ocean, but it’s an “okay” feature that doesn’t enhance the game.

Regardless, I’m a sucker for these games and I keep buying the DLCs in hopes that they’ll make a Tropico 6.

As soon as I started playing this game, I just couldn't stop. The management aspects to this game run smoothly and offer a lot of challenge, and the game has such a unique style and charm to it that is unlike anything I have ever seen in a game before. I found myself getting angry at the game while also simultaneously enjoying myself with every second I played. I highly recommend this one!

Not a good sandbox builder. Initially the game seems great with good graphics, very amusing advisors and fairly solid city building mechanics. Then, everything is going great, approval rating well over half, no debt, plenty of housing and amenities and your people rebel, over and over and over again until no matter how much army you build you get overthrown and game over. WTF kind of game mechanic is that?! Cant even have a long drawn out casual builder session. Terrible.

TLDR - Great graphics, good comedy, fun city building. TERRIBLE political system. Since cant have a good long game, unfortunately cannot recommend.

I've played a lot of tropico 3/4/5 and I can keep it short: I love 4 best, then 3, then 5. All of that has been said before in these reviews. I wanted to add another perspective to people giving this game a negative vote, in the form of a blogpost link of the developer of the game themselves about stuff that went wrong, why it went wrong and some more background information. See at: this url

To the people that have read or wrote reviews about "I don't understand why they chose this or that", please read their blogpost, it will clear up a lot. I'm not saying this justifies the missed potential of 5, but I think we are in for a better tropico 6 because of it (tropico 5). Hold on guys! :)

It really bugs me that flags do not fly the same direction in this game. Apprently each building with flags generates its own localised wind which affects only that paticular building and nothing else. 4/10 would not build Guard Towers again.

If you’ve never played a Tropico game, you may not realize the difference between this series and any other simulation game. You might not realize all the political parody that defines Tropico. If you follow along with campaign narration and read the additional commentary tucked into the corners of the game, you will no doubt laugh at the subtle — and not so subtle — jabs at things like communism, capitalism, certain famous figures in history, and cultures that might be found in such a fictional place as Tropico. In Tropico 5, it only gets better as you, El Presidente, bring your island up from Colonial times, wedged between other superpowers, through all the familiar eras of our planet’s history.

The fun of this game comes from experimenting with the exact ways you can choose to run your little country. Seeing what you can get away with, or seeing just how happy and loyal you can make your citizens, is the real appeal of this game. Yes, you have to research new technology, make money with farming or mining etc., and construct housing for your citizens, but every one of those choices has its own weight on political aspects. You can construct churches to increase quality of housing in the area, but if you are an atheist country by your constitution, this may lower your approval rating. If your approval rating gets too low, you may not win the next election (if you have those), or a rebellion may threaten to overthrow your rule.

One thing you can do to help your situation is create a dynasty. Each ruler, the first being customized by you at the beginning of the game, has a special trait. Eventually, the game prompts you to find a new heir (by ridiculous means like a singing competition or thumb-wrestling match), and that new person will be selectable as a candidate for any election. Also, if you upset one of them too much by not siding with them on other trivial matters, they can rebel and try to overthrow you. You can also send them off to do special tasks like spy on an enemy faction or get a fancy degree to add merit to your regime. This is a really unique gameplay mechanic that I have not seen before, and your dynasty even carries over to multiplayer and sandbox modes. The game feels more robust with such a lasting element that can possibly produce much varying gameplay.

Another sneaky, new mechanic is your personal Swiss bank account. This is represented by two dollar signs in front of any amount that concerns your personal account. This is where you can really become a corrupt leader and laugh all the while. The purpose of this account is to get you out of tight spots in the campaign, or to level up your dynasty members. If you are lucky enough to discover a manager that siphons off a percentage of a building’s revenue to put into your account, saving up becomes easy.

Combat is in Tropico 5, but to be honest it probably shouldn't be, at least not in this form. While almost everything else in the game feels smooth and refined, the battles are fiddly and tedious. When you're attacked, whether by a traitorous squad of rebels or by foreign powers, you'll see tiny squads pop up on the map. They'll head off to destroy your key structures, and whatever defences you possess, militia squads or your personal guard, will automatically rush over to ineffectually swat at them, often before waiting for backup. Pretty much all you can do at that point is sit back and wait to mop up the pieces.

It's not too much of a problem honestly, because larger combats generally only happen when you've lost control of the situation completely anyway. The smaller skirmishes, like the occasional uprising that happens if you irritate one of the game's factions too much, thankfully don't last too long. Combat is the game's most obvious weakness, but it doesn't soil the rest of Tropico 5.

The characters of Tropico are drawn in broad strokes, but the canvas they’re drawn on is broader. Everyone and everything is a caricature: your underling, Penultimo, is a dimwitted, unceasing bootlicker; capitalists and opportunists within your staff seethe with delight as they suggest profiting off other nations’ needs, while communist revolutionaries are naively passionate about their cause despite not knowing exactly what they’re fighting for. Entire political institutions are mocked; early in the single-player campaign, a Marxist reveals that the Russians are exporting the Communist Revolution as a buyable service.

I won’t bother going through how the basics of a city builder work, as I think you understand most of it if you live in any civilization in real life. But I will say that they scope of Tropico 5, with the added intricacies of politics, makes this game much more fun and in-depth. That’s something other city sims don’t have.

The parody in particular is especially entertaining. Once you progress out of the colonial era, you get to hear the perky ramblings of a girl who manages a tavern called the Jolly Rodger, which I think is supposed to represent pirate radio and a public truth-teller you cannot control. She has something to say about almost every new milestone, and she makes sure to embarrass El Presidente any chance she gets, like when you hire surveillance to warn you of any new rebel leaders. The voice acting is top-notch, mainly because it’s so spirited and spot-on for whatever person is being parodied. I appreciate that in a city sim. After all, why build up a regular ol’ society when you could be building one that makes fun of things that have happened in our actual history?

Unlike previous games in the series, Tropico 5 includes multiplayer modes - and while these function just fine, they feel like they're missing something. Up to four players can compete or cooperate in pursuing a number of objectives, and the fact that everyone shares the same island elevates the pressure in some interesting ways. If there’s an oil deposit between two dictators, the first person to build a road to that resource can claim it and expand their territory at the same time.

In a cooperative scenario, roads become friendly lifelines that players use to share teamsters or construction workers. The lack of an omnipresent scoreboard forces players to visually observe each other’s progress, but it also leaves them data-starved. Regardless of the mode or objective, players still need to tend to all of the responsibilities of a single-player game, which pile up fast. The lack of chrono controls, while inevitable, muddles the series’ traditionally relaxed atmosphere, and most players will eventually turn back to single player in order get the true Tropico experience.

Visually, this game is stunning. On high specs it looks beautiful and the effects like wind and waves are really nice. A lot of detail is gone into the look of the game. Which is probably why the developers have opted for a hollow grid look for the best areas to place buildings as opposed to the filled in grid that came before. I really didn’t like this, it makes it far more difficult to read the lay of the land. This is about the only thing in the game I really didn’t like.

Fives games in and the Tropico series has really found its feet, creating a cheery and relaxing ambience that sets it quite apart from other city-builders out there. From the music to the bright and colourful graphics and the irreverent wit of your various staff, it’s got a very unique character that makes the simple gameplay very addictive. Okay, so it holds your hand a little too much, and combat is a bit dull, but it’s certainly the high point of the series so far. A very good city management and political strategy game that’s got a relaxed attitude quite unlike anything else out there.

I really love Tropico games and would not doubt if the entire team is tripping on LSD as they code it. The graphics are solid this time around. They have a much more polished feel over the others. The musics always solid and you can import your own into the game without much effort.

With that being said I'll go into a few negatives. With this one you really do want all of the DLC as too much was withheld from the base game. Once you have everything it's a beauty.This time around you can't zoom out as far as previous versions. There is a script available to undo this but it doesn't work in multiplayer. So now they have multiplayer but it desyncs often which ruins the match. It's definitely playable but there aren't many people online. It helps to know someone with the game if you want all of the achievements because several are tied to multiplayer. I've been trying for a long time to get the final 3 I have left. At least they have it which is a step in the right direction. Then they removed some of El Presidente's previous features. Now you can't follow him around or engage in a shootout. Instead it's all about dynasty members which would be fine... if they let me follow them around, give my speeches, and shoot up the enemy. They must undo this in the next one as it removes part of the charm. I'll also argue that they made it way too difficult to be a ruthless dictator. You'll make money hand over fist being a swell guy, but if you so much as look in the other direction you're going to have a military mutiny. It doesn't matter how well prepared you are for your own troops toppling you. Sure, you deserved it but I invite you to try running a North Korean style of government on this game. You might even find yourself in awe of what that dictatorship has accomplished. It probably is more realistic in that regard but it's also almost impossible since most of the features that could make it a reality aren't available until much later in the game.

There is so much to this game that I am overwhelmed by attempting to describe the positives. Teamsters and construction workers are no longer an achilles heal. The army doesn't wander off during a crucial battle. Traffic jams are no longer an issue whatsoever. Parking garages and metros have been nerfed to the point that there doesn't seem to be a penalty for not having them at all. I'd argue that they went too far but micro managing roads was annoying. The military additions, the espionage, industries, trade, and so on are all well done. You have people flying rocket powered gliders all over the place, blimps, airlines, and so on. It's no longer just micro managing a banana republic and more like you're running a western power. I'm really interested to see what they will do with Tropico 6. I hope they add more wildlife as they removed a bit too much this time, give us back control over El Presidente, and work on the different forms of government. If they do those simple things I'll be happy.

I will place the script to edit music into the game as well as the camera zoom into the comments section.

As a longtime fan of the Tropico series I had good expectations for this game. Sadly they turned this game into a cash cow. They have LESS buildings than the predecessor Tropico 4. Also some of the main buildings that i enjoyed building are now locked out in Tropico 5 FORCING you to purchase the DLC for even the basics. All in all a huge let down and i doubt that I will purchase any future Tropico games after the let down of a cash cow presented.

Worse in pretty much every way to Tropico 4 other than slightly improved graphics.

Get Tropico 4 instead.

The console rot has finally infested this series.

I literally do not get how you can make the UI worse.

- It's less user friendly ingame (bulky and no favourites).
- You're forced to cycle through options instead of having dropdowns (terrible in char creation).
- Stripped out the decent sandbox creation features.
- No difficulty rating.
- No descriptive tooltips on settings, so I am sat here wondering how temperature will effect the experience.
- Have to pay 1000 dollars to "explore" the fog of war with your miltary, whom sometimes dont even reach their destination, so exploring the entire island costs a fortune.
- Game is too easy, you have no problem with cashflow.
- Mines are now placed snugly into ugly horseshoe-shaped rocks.
- Trading is shallow and removes the challenge of limited resources.
- Military is a badly designed uncontrollable mess.
- DLC doesn't add enough to be worth it either.
- The largest maps just aren't very big!

It just feels like several half arsed elements of a game slapped together for consoles.

The devs really need to sit down and fix this shambles by returning to their roots of the original Tropico and some good elements of T2 and T4, and then looking at other games that do certain elements right:
Building, simulation, zoning, districts etc: Cities Skylines
Concise ship combat and trading: Anno 1404
Land combat and deforestation: Aoe2

Uninstalled, back to T4.
