It's advertised that this game has cross platform multiplayer. Bought it to play with a friend and it doesn't work. Don't waste your time trying to play with your Ps4 friends.

Good game overall but still quite limited, could use some more customization options in regards to buildings, roads and such. And the multiplayer would be way more awesome if we could use the DLC's there as well. I would love to spy on my fellow players.

- Voice actors are worse than 3 and 4, especially Penultimo
- Character variety, faction leaders typecasting and funny plotlines are less than other games
- Actually, in general the game has lost its funny and sarcastic nature compared to old games
- Only 2 maps for campaign and you continue next missions where you left off. This seemed to be a good feature at first but after four or five mission it's getting annoying
- New trade system is frustrating and complicated.
- Constitutions change nothing, there were still religious tasks/demands/protests/riots even though i proclaimed "atheist nation"
-Campaign scenario is weird, Every new mission starts at Colonial Era no matter how far the date progress on previous mission. But plot, buildings and character interactions stay chronogical. This is a very stupid thing.
- Zoom-in is restricted to about 4-5 meter top down view and you can't see the Tropicans closely or even El Presidente.
- By the way There's no controlling El Presidente anymore
- I didn't like the new radio host. She is not funny and don't compatible with events that happen on island.
- El Presidente customization is barren, you can't even customize your first name. Wt* actually?

To make the long story short; Tropico 5 is a big disaster and fail. Absolutely not recommend it, buy 3 - 4 or both instead.

Reminds me of a mix between Civ + SimCity, except you play as an ostentatious dictator. Lighthearted atmosphere and fun gameplay... oh yeah, and the soundtrack! The music is great, even if you aren't a huge fan of Latin music (like myself), you just can't help but love it.

I have played Tropico 3 for 100 hours (non-steam version) and Tropico 4 for almost 50 hours and i can only say this game is downgrade in many different things. There is few new things that are welcome to the game but so many things and options have been removed from this one.

Ofc this is still good and decent game to play but i recommend to buy Tropico 4 with Modern Times DLC. Cheaper and twice better package than this one with other DLC's.

Best Game in my library now that I realised how much depth this game has.
I play this with a friend and they are the Darkness who murders people and bribes people as well as handle the dirty work.
I am the nice El' Presidenté smiles for the Camera.

The issue you are having is one I struggled with until it dawned on me.
Tropico 5 no matter what anyone says is a unique beast. You CAN play as if it was a REAL place - do things as if you WERE El' Presidenté.
If you treat this like a Game and nothing else - you might get success - hell you may even win the scenarios - but that is not the true joy.

The true joy is in playing how YOU would manage. I murdered anyone who was homeless, I murdered anyone who didnt agree with me, I bribed those who were poor and approved of me - thus giving them wealth.
I was a dictator and a FINE one - even my people said so - the living ones. In time my approval went up and my detractors went down - literally.

Provide a housing community with nearby grocery stores and a park and entertainment for them to spend their wages.
Provide working zones that can draw in people to work and pay them a high wage which will get spent in entertainment essentially getting back what you paid.

Homeless people are homeless because they can't afford housing so either make housing CHEAPER by lowering the cost on its menu (Dollar sign) or Increase Wages. Income / Expenditure.

If people are jobless - increase Job variety - people don't just work a job for the hell of it - give them a reason to, click on the people look at their thoughts and remember - some people are just LAZY and won't work just like real life - kill them - hell - I'd do it in real life if it was legal.

You are El' Presidenté - YOU ARE THE LAW.

Okay so....
If you are new to Tropico series, I'd suggest getting Tropico 4 instead as it's more "complete" compared to Tropico 5. Sure Tropico 5 has got interesting features like timeline where you start in Colonial Era and proceed to Modern Times, also more troops (now it's got fighter jets and tanks) so you have more variation in combat.

In term of controlling your city, Tropico 4 excels (in my opinion). In Tropico 5, they even remove ministers, so you can just issue any edicts you want. No more Immigration Office so you have to make amendment which once issued, you have to wait for really long time. Your character can visit places to "enhance" its efficiency and much more in Tropico 4. However, in Tropico 4, the military stuff is limited. You are only offered infantry and that's it, you can only fight the rebels and if someone wants to declare war on you it's an instant game over which is suck.

Player customization is limited as well in Tropico 5, you can't even name your character the way you want, the traits are not as many as Tropico 4. To replace this, Tropico 5 introduces "Dynasty". It's just your family, nothing special, you can choose one of the member to become the next president. For me, it's an upgrade, but the question is.... Why remove the freedom to customize your character?

What I like Tropico 5 the most is the multiplayer feature, unfortunately the game is not really crowded so you better have some friends playing with you. Because it's a race against time thanks to the timeline.

DLCs? I don't recommend it, it adds some features but you'll get bored easily. Besides, the DLCs are too many the price in total is just not worth it. The base game is actually enough.

Tropico 5 just isn't a good entry to the series. The graphics are either too colorful or too bland, the soundtrack gets repetitive after three loops, and the radio host is more annoying than Betty Boom, which is a hard feat to accomplish.

The buildings have no variety, placement feels blocky, the roads leave marks if you mess up the placement, and everything feels massively watered down.

Elections feel incredibly basic, and there's no speech feature to sway some voters to your side.

The only good parts of this game are that builders are faster, the roads snap, and you get more money faster.

Tropico 5 is the slope on the other side of the mountain, the peak being Tropico 4. In fact, the earlier games are better than Tropico 5.

TL;DR: Buy 3 and 4 instead.

Some of the DLC is overpriced and questionable, and there's a lot of "same old stuff" from previous versions, but as a long time fan it's still an addictive, funny way to spend your time.

And now that there's a "Complete Collection" out, the inconsistent DLC becomes reasonable... and if you catch it on a sale, an outright steal.

Advantages:
- Multiplayer mode
- Better graphic
- New army system
- Discover system
- Roads and transports change by years
- Detailed division in constructions

Disadvantages:
- Too many DLCs
- Not worth buying without a discount
- Not friendly to greenhands
- Voters are crazy about stepping you down


Conclusion:
It is not better in gameplay compared with Tropico4.But you will have a differrent experience.

This game is amazing. The new feature where you travel through the different time periods is a sick addition and to top it all off the sandbox mode which has taken this game from greatness to godliness. 5/5 Worth every penny. Amazing is an understatement.

If you have played Tropico games previously you know what you are getting into. If you haven't.....Tropico is a city building game focused a little more towards fun than complicated economy systems like other city-building simulations. Tropico 5 is a fantastic game, I suggest anybody give it a shot. The music is second to none.
