    Its a shame that some of the irritations from previous games persist. A screen dominated by menus as opposed to seeing what is actually occurring on the ground and music that needs to be switched to mute as an extreme priority being a few. That having been said, the game has plenty of new features and longevity over previous games, if perhaps not offering anything especially new.

    So they made it look prettier and added a couple of new things, whoopdeedo! HOW ABOUT FIXING THE PROBLEMS THAT HAVE PLAGUED THIS GAME SINCE THE BEGINNING!!! Citizens still refuse to work no matter the job quality or pay STILL. Stop adding things to the game and fix the problems already. Thanks for wasting my money. And to the rest of the critics, just quit, you have no clue. To give thisSo they made it look prettier and added a couple of new things, whoopdeedo!

To give this game such high ratings when they refuse to fix the flaws even after 5 games and countless complaints. Expand

    Not a very polished addition to the series. Still a fun builder with plenty to do but not I believe this game falls very short in some areas. very little customization options for your leader and I expected a lot more additions that were simply not there. I still think the leap to xboxone is something to look forward too still a fun game to pass the time and is still interesting. TheNot a very polished addition to the series.

The reason I gave it a 6 is because it simply did not deliver many additions and it just doesn't feel like a full game from tropico 4. Expand

    There's something infectious about Tropico 5's breezy attitude to tyranny and dictatorship. [Issue#156, p.118]
  2. Like sipping a mojito while resting your panda-skin boots on a pauper, there's something nasty yet refreshing here, as it pushes you to maintain control in marvelously illiberal ways. [Feb 2015 (US), p.72]

    That said, with the plethora of other options ranging from churches to space programs, controlling an island nation bent on exorcizing its previous demons (existing under the Crown of an imperialist ruler) and taking sole command of an army and a civilization, Tropico 5 is a fulfilling experience.
