-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.Read more ›
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. :)
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.
My only complaint is that I want more! Hopefully the DLC and future expansions will provide exactly that.
For those of you who are either new to the series or an old fan, I can’t recommend it enough. There’s still that charming humour behind everything you do. There’s still numerous paths you can choose to solidify your power and there’s still a huge amount of ways to build and sustain your city.
Those familiarities may be a problem for veterans of the series, and understandably so. It’s undeniably iterative, but for me it does just enough to make it feel like a fresh way to experience Tropico. It’s a game that you can easily lose a whole day to and not feel like you wasted any of your time.
