In times of political turmoil and social unrest, the people are calling out for a visionary leader, one who will steer the fate of their country with foresight and ingenuity. Will you answer that call?.
Whether or not Tropico 6 is for you really depends on your affinity for the genre, and Tropico in particular. If you’re a fan of previous games in the series, you’re apt to like this one, mostly because it’s less an evolution and more a simple refinement. That said, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, and Tropico hasn’t needed much fixing for a while. This is definitely a case where more of the same is more than welcome.
Tropico 6 is an incredibly enjoyable management sim with a lot of charm and a great sense of humour. It's not too different from the rest of the series but you'll still find yourself playing it for hours on end.
Tropico 6 is one of PlayStation 4's best strategy games, and also one of its most unique, putting you into the shoes of a dictator rather than the standard benevolent overseer that most of these titles offer. Taking your tropical island from shacks and farms to skyscrapers and space plans is a lot fun, and there's enough variety in map design and mission objectives to mean that you'll rarely feel like you're repeating the same beats. And honestly, the music really is pretty good.
Tropico 6 is a great step forward. It fixes a lot of the problems that plagued the last instalment and does it while adding plenty of content. Limbic have created the building blocks of something great and with more focus on military interaction of invading and conquering it could become a brilliant all-round experience.
Tropic 6 is a game that will provide fun to those who acquire it for many hours. Its playability, game modes and graphic section are captivating. Given its characteristics, the game is ideal for newbies in this genre. If you do not have much experience playing video games of this type, you will love Tropic 6, if on the contrary you have already played many deliveries of this genre, Tropic 6 may seem a bit simple.
Despite some of its difficulties, Tropico 6 is a perfectly adequate port of an impressively layered and comically disarming PC experience. It isn’t going to be lighting the world on fire, as far as innovation is concerned, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see El Presidente try it on the forts of his opposition. If you’ve been hankering for the next chance to embrace your inner fascist, this should be a fantastic way to satiate the bloodlust.
Tropico 6 doesn’t stray too far from its comfort zone but it keeps on offering good fun while being very steady in its solid gameplay mechanics.
