Review by : Panda Waifu
- Lovely art style.
- Added Multiplayer.
- More eras to play in.
- A barebones single player experience.
- Not enough songs.
- Glitch prone multiplayer.
Tropico 5 is a Strategy/Citybuilder Simulation game where you take the role of El Presidente leading the small banana republic of Tropico.
As the dictator you wield absolute authority over your people and the island.
With a simple but functional campaign mode and a new added multiplayer mode, Tropico 5 feel like a lot of the same but its a new way...
The first big thing added to Tropico 5 is the eras.
The eras allow you to play through multiple time periods, starting in the Colonial Era where you play as a governor for the English Crown, and ending in Modern times, where you have to make Tropico future proof.
This idea sounds amazing on paper but doesn't really play out that well.
The biggest problem is that eras feel short and become boring rather quickly. I would have rather seen them working with one time period (like in Tropico 4), but giving it a lot of depth and attention.
The second big thing they added in Tropico 5 was multiplayer.
You can play with up to 4 friends in Tropico 5's multiplayer. The multiplayer is largely mission based, for example:
>Who can earn the most tax money in 5 minutes
>Who can export 5000 canned fish first
Completing these objectives will give a player a point, and the first to 10 points will be the winner.
It's fun for a while but suffers from horrible server slowdowns from time to time, and can feel a bit repetitive.
Chances since Tropico 4 :
Other than a few minor additions the game feels the same as Tropico 4, although Tropico 4 did a few things better.
For example, the Tropico 4 had a better singleplayer campaign.
Tropico 4's base game also had more content on release than Tropico 5 has (such as prisons), although they plan on adding additional content to Tropico 5 over coming months.
There were also visual improvements to the game, and the UI is nicer to look at.
Overall the game offers enough to earn a true sequel status, but Tropico 4 is overall just a better product.
I still recommend this game because it's still alot of fun to play.Developer : Haemimont Games
