    Tropico 6 is a highly addictive city and government simulator that has realistic game mechanics with an easy to use build and management interface. A marvelous, challenging, enjoyable and non complicated experience.

    I wasn't sure what to expect when I went into Tropico 6, but I came out in love. It's truly one of the best city building games of all time, and it has an excellent amount of polish, depth, and satire that all help it feel like a unique experience. The cluttered interface is a downside, but it's hardly one that impacts the overall gameplay much.

    Despite its flaws, Tropico 6 will definitely cause you to stay up later than you should. If you’re willing to forgive the lack of structure, you can spend hours and hours building on each of the included maps. There’s even a randomized map generator once you squeeze all the fun from the included content. In this way, Tropico 6 feels like an old school PC release, but it should still appeal to a wide variety of players looking to rule the tropics with a tanned iron fist.

    Tropico 6 rises to be a worthy successor of Tropico 4, taking the franchise back on the track with its archipelago system and return of some of the old features from the previous games.

    Tropico 6 lacks of innovations. It is a good Tropico, but it has lost part of the series magic.
  6. 70
    Tropico 6 involves a huge time investment and a steep learning curve, but it is a solid entry in the management/sim genre.

    Tropico 6 is entertaining fun, which guarantees many hours of management and strategy, with a well-leveled difficulty. Although it is inevitable not to think that it is a low-risk and original work.

    Best Tropico in the series. Love the archipelagos, even if it makes it tough to grow quickly.

    Тропико 6 это хорошее продолжение серии, сохранившее и развившее в себе все плюсы предыдущих частей.
    Прекрасная музыка, красивый тропический остров, вариативность путей развития и многое другое.
    Возможно, отчасти это так же является и главной проблемой этой игры. Каждая новая часть приносит минимум изменений, и практически не добавляет нового контента.

Seemingly everyMostly enjoyable but as I progressed to later mission such as referendum and superpower defence, I found the game impossible. Seemingly every 5 minutes a fire would break out and destroy some important building such as a power station or factory. Sometimes I would get a message saying a fire had broken out but when I looked at the map there was no obvious fire. All this in spite of having a firs station with a helicopter. So I often ended up building even more fire stations ...wasting money and still fires every 5 minutes....ARGGGGGHHHHH! Stupid annoying fires. Who ever thought that this would make a game fun? I am not a new player I have played every Tropico version but there are some really annoying bugs with Tropico 6. Another annoying feature is that the campaigne is not logical just a series of seemingly random maps that have little resemblance to one another. You can succeed very well on one map and then the next one is so different and impossible that it bears no similarity to anything before. A logical campaign that takes the player through step by step missions instead of random unrelated missions would have been welcome. HINT: delete the fires from the next version of Tropico. Superannoying. Expand

    Its Tropico 5 with bridges and a menu option to increase population caps... instead of changing it from the config file... in other words, itsIts Tropico 5 with bridges and a menu option to increase population caps... instead of changing it from the config file... in other words, its the same game as 5. There are no new game play mechanics and anyone saying otherwise is lying out the wazoo. They are just the same old mechanics reshuffled and given a new skin and name while pretending that they are new. Its still a fun game and I suppose if the prices are the same you should get the newer game but if you already own 5 there is no reason to buy 6.

    I completed the first 6 scenarios before getting bored and trying a sandbox game. It ended when I realized that tourism is (still) broken. Namely, despite having a population cap of 10,000, tourism has some sort of soft cap and will not rise above 300ish no matter what I do (same problem with old games). Kind of takes away from building a "resort island" idea since there is little else to do with the islands.

    Here is a list of the supposed new "mechanics" as listed on their website:

    ISLANDS - are mundane and adds nothing to the game. They are not a new mechanic unless you count adding a bridge and tunnel to the game as something incredible... how are they different than streets on a single island? They arent.

    BROKER - replaced the old way of earning sludge fund money. All you do is complete inane quests for him similar to the old quests you got from other countries and earn sludge fund money. This is not an improvement nor worth mentioning. you then use the sludge fund money to buy various things you dont need.... The broker is useless.

    RAIDS - are no different than old days but can be more frequent due to world wars. They land on your island, you annihilate them easily with just a couple of buildings and a tower. The added frequency did not add anything to the game. Rebel raids, on the other hand, are bugged and impossible to stop. They bypass towers and defenses entirely and set fires at will, then they simply disappear. Its obviously bugged but even if it worked, its just the same old mechanic. They are not a huge problem because its very easy to maintain very high happiness in the game.

    BLUEPRINTS - are lazy and meaningless. Basically you bring up the building meny and click to buy a blueprint... after you do the building is unlocked. Its just a cash dump barrier and adds nothing to the game especially since its so easy to make cash.

    This game is pathetic no matter what you do you start out ok but the more you build the worse it gets. you never make enough money to coverThis game is pathetic no matter what you do you start out ok but the more you build the worse it gets. you never make enough money to cover expenses you end up reducing their budget which makes the people unhappy than they rebel against you you never seem to make enough money from trades or freight and eventually you get hit with a domino effect and end up in the red -50k. 90% of the game your just sitting there doing nothing waiting to get more money which you never get!
