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.

It's a solid entry into the Tropico Franchise. I recommend playing Tropico 4 first however and also make sure you buy the complete collection so you have access to the full content of the game. The combat system is kind of lame though since the main strategy seems to be to spam a bunch of guard towers right next to each other.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

TROPICO 5
My first serious review so do not judge.

GRAPHICS
I just have 1 word "amazing" the graphics are beautiful but I still cannot see the eyes in the character customization screen.

GAMEPLAY
This game is more for hardcore gamers,but not for casual gamers.(SPOILER ALERT)There are always rebels or disasters to cut your way of ruling the empire.Sometimes trade contracts end or you just run out of money.In colonial era you can lose by not having enough revolutionaries.I myself am a casual gamer and I do not recommend this for casual gamers.I have raged alot.

MULTIPLAYER

Never tried it out :D .The reason is because nobody plays it,you will always just find 3-10 people in an international lobby,even though 600 people play this daily.But mostly singleplayer.If you do not enjoy singleplayer u can still check out multiplayer.

MY EXPERIENCE

First city builder I have ever played in my life.Started out,failed 5 times,reloaded save,got to a new era,ran out of cash,raged hard.Hope you dont have the same experience as me :D .

FINAL RATING

5/10
Reasons:
Lack of players in multiplayer
Not for casual gamers (U can change hardness)
If you fail you need to start a new game or continue from last save.
