About the Game
Tropico 5 arrives with a whole host of new gameplay features, as well as a new art style. These help to introduce the new direction for the franchise, which sees it focus on dynasties.
Tropico 5 builds on the previous games and the additions add a new level of depth to the success of a thriving island paradise, the eras are interesting and change up the gameplay a bit and the addition of multiplayer is welcome given a few tweaks and changes, and currently patches have been addressing various problems. The campaign does feel a bit restrictive with actually having to plan for the long haul and remembering what state your other island was in when you return to it can be challenging in a bad way. But the game offers more of the same and it works, its satisfying when things are going well, and challenging enough that you'll want to keep trying to turn a series of bad decisions around.
