This game is extremely fun and is a genre that is certainly under served currently on the PS4.

This game controls fantastically and after a few minutes you'll forget about not having a mouse/keyboard.

The game isn't as deep a city builder as say Sim City and doesn't have the trade route/diplomacy of say a Civilization and certainly doesn't have combat like StarCraft but it combines all three extremely well providing enough depth without being overly complicated and unacceptable to anyone who's new to the genre.

Minor quibbles

1. Trade system is a little difficult to understand
2. Research tree seems kind of pointless. Seemingly you just research everything eventually and unlike some other games its very linear.
3. I would have liked a increase the font option. The words are not that small but after working all day looking I would increase the font size slightly if the option were available.
4. Jokes are amusing enough at first but get a little tiresome after awhile.

Conclusion: If you enjoy strategy games or want to try one for the first time i highly recommend this game. I think even hardcore strategy game player will enjoy this game and if anything the more people who try this game out on PS4 the more likely we'll get more game like it to play!

I became a fan of Tropic after having played Tropic 3 on my PC a number of years ago. I switched to the xbox 360 for Tropic 4, and now I am taking my turn on the PS4 with Tropico 5.

My initial assessment of the game that it is a reasonable successor to the previous games in the series. Much of the overall gameplay remains as it was in the previous edition: build your city and exploit your resources to make your population happy. What Tropico 5 offers over previous versions, especially in terms of the graphics, is only highlighted by playing on a next-gen platform like the PS4. The renderings are gorgeous and everything is crisp and crystal clear; you can almost see the laundry fluttering in the breeze on the tenements in your city. However, some of the campaign feels forced and incredibly brief, especially when compared to Tropic 4. Aspects of the campaign are challenging, but not overwhelmingly so; I was able to complete the main campaign in under a week. It will probably offer some frustration to those who are not familiar with the city simulation genre, but for those of us who are or who are returning Tropico players, you might get to the end and wonder “was that it?” What I found to be unique versus Tropico 4 was that you trade islands every other scenario, and the condition you left one island with is how you will find it when you come back later (though, oddly, some of your decrees, like building permits, need to be reissued); that does make for a greater challenge in some respects but it also reduces the variety we had from the previous game, which offered its own challenges. The need to explore the island, reminiscent of the Civilization series, felt contrived and unnecessary.

As a fan of Tropico I've really been enjoying this latest entry in the series. It's fun, it's polished, and the controls are excellent. You can tell a lot of thought was put into getting them just right. I have spent both nights since release repeatedly lying to myself, "Just 10 more minutes, then I've really got to go to bed. I mean it this time!"

With that said, there is a definite feeling of 'more of the same' while playing this. I find myself feeling like this could easily have been a Tropico 4 expansion pack rather than a whole new numbered iteration of the series. The campaign may be new but the graphics and gameplay are not. I still expect to get a lot of enjoyment out of the game, but I can't help but feel like there should be more to it. Still, whatever complaints I might have, I can't deny that I'm excited to get home today so that I can continue building my tropical worker's paradise.

Overall, I'd say that if you've enjoyed previous Tropico games you're very likely to enjoy this one.

I thoroughly enjoyed Tropico 5. It's very similar to previous games, but doesn't crash like Tropico 4 crashed. The game is very smooth on the PS4. There are a couple of hiccups here and there where the game loads for a few seconds in the middle of doing something, but those moments are not very frequent.

The game remains mostly unchanged from previous incarnations. If you enjoyed the previous titles, you'll probably enjoy this one. I played the missions and it took me about 20 hours to complete. There are also sandbox and multi-player modes, but I wasn't really interested in those.

The graphics are nicer than previous generations of the game and the game doesn't get bogged down even when you have lots of buildings on one island.

The PS4 version includes one extra mission and one extra island for sandbox mode. The DLC that's included on the disc is not the same DLC that was recently released for PC and the XBox 360. The extra PS4 mission took me about 30 minutes to complete, so it's no where near as expansive as the recently released DLC. (Being on the disc it's not even DLC technically.)

Overall, this is a fun game without many of the issues that plagued previous iterations. If you enjoyed the previous games, you'll likely enjoy Tropico 5.
