4.0 out of 5 stars Best Tropico so far, many improvements May 23, 2014
Platform for Display:PC Download|Edition:Standard
I have logged about 20 hours of gameplay so far and upgraded my rating from 3 to 4 stars. I got this on steam so I was able to download it on May 23. This is very different from the previous Tropicos. The difference between tropic 3 and tropic 4 was a few more buildings, but overall was the same game. Tropico 5 looks and feels completely different. You will find this game much harder and challenging on campaign mode but now has difficulty settings. There are many new building and upgrades as well. Multiplayer is still not up but I will update this review when this mode is working as it seems like it will be fun. I have played many hours of tropico 3 and tropico 4 so I am very familiar with the series. They released patch 1.02 on June 9th, which fixed numerous issues with both multiplayer and single player.

Pros
-Graphics are updated and is much smoother than previous tropicos.
-The trading system has been overhauled and you now have a guaranteed trade ship every six months. You now also have an additional ship that you can use to trade a certain commodity at above default rate of the computer generated trade ship. Also the ships will change every so many years and look like a ship of that time period.
-You no longer have to build a separate tourist dock. All tourist ships use the same dock as what is given to you at the start of the game.
-You can now hire a manager for each building. Each manager with have certain bonuses they bring such as better efficiency or better job quality.
-Each place where tropicans work will display what income level they will be at. For example a dock worker or a farmer will be a poor tropican, but you can increase their pay to make them well-off. The housing will tell you how it corresponds to their income level.

4.0 out of 5 stars El Presidente is Back May 24, 2014
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
So Let me start off by saying that I have been a fan of the series for awhile. The franchise has blazed a path that the sim city series should have followed... but they didn't.

Tropico 5 is much different than the previous installments. From the interface to some of the core elements of the game. I feel that the series is trying to keep it fresh and they have done a lot of good things. Normally, I play sim games in a high 3rd person perspective and manage the overall aspects of placements and some small amount of micromanagement. T5 requires a lot more attention to details that the predecessors did not. For me that is a good thing as it requires you to be more involved. Small selections have a larger impact on the game overall. Still playing through and may update as I go.

The learning curve is a little higher than I am used to, but it may just be age. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite the game May 27, 2014
Platform for Display:PC Download|Edition:Standard
I've never played the Tropico series before but I've always been interested. After playing Tropico 5 I am sorry I didn't play them sooner! This is a fun blend of Sim City urban planning mixed with the best elements of strategy games such as Civilization and Europa Universalis. While I was frustrated when I would get attacked by foreigners in the middle of a civil war, there was glee in my ability to bomb them all back into submission.

My only complaint is that I want more! Hopefully the DLC and future expansions will provide exactly that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatlly evolved title. Intelegent and inventive. May 28, 2014
Platform for Display:PC Download|Edition:Standard
Tropico 5 has moved the series further with its vibrant colours, new and fun music score and a re-worked menus and progression engine.
The menus took a little time to adjust, as things have moved around a little but the new look feels very fresh and tidy and once you get used to it, becomes very comfortable and easy to use. The changes between different eras are a very nice touch and slowly as you build your ideal island heaven, new technologies and buildings become available. Because of that, the missions almost gain a storyline to them.
visually Tropico 5 has more detail and the vibrancy of colours, really bring the city alive . I also enjoy the difference between new constructions through different eras.
Another great quality in this game is the ability to choose the way you progress as different choices help you shape the way your city runs both politically and economically.
To sum up, a really great and fun title that will bring you many hours of pleasure and can be enjoyed by the whole family.

Your graphic card has to support Direct X 11 and you need at least a AMD Radeon HD 4000, nVidia Geforce 400 or a Intel HD 4000 video card. My video card didn't meet the req. and all I see is a black screen with lots of tearing when I start the game.

Update: I replaced my graphics card and got the game running. Yay!! I've only completed the tutorial and two of the missions, but I'm impressed so far. Game play is very similar to Tropico 4, but has some new twists to keep it interesting. Visually stunning and runs good on my 3 year old computer (after I updated the video card). My favorite new thing is that farms and ranches have defined areas so the crops/animals don't get everywhere. My least is they changed Penultimo voice. He's actually an advisor now and much too serious. The game's humor is still there, but I think it's more muted.

I had a lot of fun, about a week's full gameplay with Tropico 5. You really do have a lot of sympathy for political leaders and even downright dictators after playing Tropico, even when you're desperately trying to improve your citizens lives, they are all like fussy children who can turn on you in a second. There are a lot of new features I liked - the historical progression - the ability to upgrade all the housing at once, the Library and Research skill path that reminds me of EVE Onlines skill queues. I do miss things from Tropico 4 - like the country communal houses, that were cool modern designs, and the ability to have fun decorating with statues, and trees and silly benches and beach umbrellas. I also would really enjoy the wide range of islands that occurred in previous versions - it's a little unrealistic to think that a Caribbean island would have coal, iron, bauxite, gold, oil, and uranium deposits. I kept the same character as if he was immortal, but I think that El Presidente needs to be changed when the eras change.
