    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.

This is a game series right out of nostalgia for me, so I will try to be fair. Tropico 6 has add much to it and removed as much. its like another review has mentioned its is Tropico 5 with bridges. While it does have a bit more than than, I do feel that sums things up rather well. More than likely we will get DLC that will readd features and buildings from the previous installments or needlessly assine features (like the Twitter of Tropico) that have no real reason for being there. I do enjoy the new options to steal landmarks, yet it feels a bit disjointed. Tropico 6 is a lesson in absurdity. As in, you can make a game with some crazy mechanics or features, but then we cross a line where it goes from fun and wacky to just absurd and boring.

    So to be fair, its a really good game. Trust me on that. However I would rather go back to Tropico 5 or better yet the original Tropico....atleast then I could play as Lou Bega (see Mambo #5) trying to destroy the communists by building nightclubs.

    The game is good (mechanics, hours to play, etc).
    The main 'issue' i have with this game is, that it's not relaxing. Sometimes it feels like work with a high stress level. On medium difficulty it's hard to earn enough money for all the quests which are given.

    I recognize that this is a good game - i guess. It looks pretty and it has some good charme. But there are some aspects that i really, reallyI recognize that this is a good game - i guess. It looks pretty and it has some good charme. But there are some aspects that i really, really do not like .. at all.

    - the size ... the islands are tiny. There is no feeling of scale. The nation is smaller than a miniature village .. it all makes no sense at all in terms of presentation

    - the humor ... is kind of lame. The light tone it takes when it comes to an island dictatorship is in the wrong place - for my taste.

    - the sense of micro and macro management ... is lacking. Compared to games like Anno 1405, Cities Skyline or similar .. there really is not much behind the pretty fascade.

    All in all, i liked the colourful graphics, but i do not care for the game.

    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!
