This DLC is really nice because it allows you to build another industry building in the starting Colonial era, namely the Creamery. It turns milk into cheese. Overall very usefull to have since you can't build any other industry buildings in the Colonial era apart from a lumber mill to turn logs into planks. It also provides some other bonuses including one that gains support of the nationalists.

Yes the potential for economic growth with this game is unlimited. I don't think people realize once you have the building you can use it in any other missions you are given. Where before missions may have began to feel tedious or overwhelming, it adds new ways to navigate your way thru the main story campaign or the side missions. The more DLC I purchase the more complete the game feels and more balanced it feels on any difficulty level, for any campaign/mission.

I love to see so many people taking the time to complain about a game, but not give any actual feedback as to how it hindered their gameplay experience or how they could have improved. Not very helpful to the creators if you just say it sucked and whine about the $5 you had to spend on it.

Just a heads up to future bad reviewers, give them info on how they could have improved it, don't just complain about it. I have a feeling all this DLC is adding up to another large campaign mission that will be much easier to complete provided you have these additional buildings. Although on their own they seem useless, as I go along here, the more has certainly been the merrier.

Cheese? Really? While i love this game, i would still debate it if it was only 99 cents.

It adds a building,a building that is complety useless since there a far more efficient industry buildings in the game and the scenario that it adds is really boring. Its a waste of time and money.

TL;DR at end

honestly, i didn't notice a change (pre-ordered so got this as soon as it came out and i don't play all that much) with this DLC. calling this a DLC is a strech as one building doesn't add much (and this building sucks)

don't get me wrong though. i have enjoyed tropico since i started playing (tropico 3 was my first of the series) and i also enjoy DLCs for games such as Crusader Kings II and Payday 2 - bought nearly all of them as the content was satisfactory. HOWEVER, adding one lack luster building for $3.99 is not worth the money. If say 5-10 buildings were added in then it would be worth the my money. Even probably $10 for 5-10 buildings.

TL;DR Tropico is a game about managing money and making your people happy. Devs want us to lose money and be ♥♥♥♥ed.

Got this as a pre-order bonus, so no money wasted there. You might wanna grab it -66% or something as it doesn't really add much.
