    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.

    Nice graphics in a new universe for el presidente, what did you need more?! Ok, more lamas, hats and freaky accessoires. But it's a fine soNice graphics in a new universe for el presidente, what did you need more?! Ok, more lamas, hats and freaky accessoires. But it's a fine so far and if i take a look at Tropico 5, i think more will come.

    Love to build on several Island. The Campaign is funny as in every Tropico. Graphics are very good and the simulated Tropicans (Tropicanos)Love to build on several Island. The Campaign is funny as in every Tropico. Graphics are very good and the simulated Tropicans (Tropicanos) are crazy in detail ( what they´re doing, not the graphics). It´s even better than Tropico 5. Expand

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

    It is very enjoyable to make diplomacy in the game. The mechanics in trade and production are very nice. Witty dialogues and messages amusedIt is very enjoyable to make diplomacy in the game. The mechanics in trade and production are very nice. Witty dialogues and messages amused me. BUT there is not day and night cycle in the game.
    It's hard to make money in the game. AS A RESULT, players who love strategy and tycoon will love this game.

    Same game again, no challenge, you can't lose, it's just boring....
    You shouldn't get it if you've played a Tropico game before.

    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.
