I love Tropico. So cheesy, yet so satisfying at the same time

Edited by hustlerlt

I love me some Tropico! I just hope it will change a little bit more than Tropico 4 did from Tropico 3. It was basically the same game, only with a better story and a little bit easier.

Well, Tropico 2 was about running a pirate island, so yeah.

So goddamn random.

Tropico 4 was fun but the way you had to rebuild a city everytime you went forward in the campaign was really grindy and annoying. I wonder if any citybuilding game or what not will give you missions on that one city you start and build. Or perhaps build multiple ones in one landmass.

Also wow yeah, that really is some blatant POTC there.

They should go back to that. It'd work well with current technology, and we lack interesting pirate themed building/strategy/management games.

Tropico is great, I'll be happy to see what they have planned in this game. Hopefully they'll go further then 4 did from 3...

Xbox 360 and PS4, but no PS3 and Xbone. How weird.

Is it? Can't imagine the Tropico team is very big so why waste a lot of resources on learning and adapting to new tech that not a lot of people own.

Well, considering they're the only team I could name that has ever decided to go with those platform choices, I think it's justifiable to say it's weird. I mean, why not PS3? At this point, it's been proven that small teams can do 360 and PS3 with minimal effort. And surely enough people would buy the PS3 version to make up for the port costs.

Tropico 3 was amazing, Tropico 4 is crap. I hope this is like 3.

El Presidente has a voice?

Looking forward to this. They're mixing it up a bit compared to three and four. Multiplayer and such is crazy talk for a lovely lonergame of a timewaster, but hey.

@hatking: Xbox 360 is the dominant old system and PS4 is the dominant new system

The wacky time traveling antics of El Presidente should probably be a game too.

This decision would have had to have been made before we knew that the PS4 was dominate, but that does prove some logic for the 360 version.

My guess is, and as far as I know these games have never been on the PS3, that they wanted to start releasing on Sony platforms. It would be silly now to build the infrastructure to do that on PS3, for obvious reasons, so they possibly started ground up on the PS4. Maybe they're cutting costs and maximizing profit by not developing for the XB1? It does strike me as odd, but only because we never see studios doing that sort of thing.

Tropico is great.

Yeaap, sadly.

They have cool concepts, just fail to carry them through almost every time.

@hatking: it was pretty obvious the PS4 was going to win out, considering how many terrible choices Microsoft made in the lead up, even if they fixed most of those by launch

Skipped 4 cause it was basically 3.1 from the look of it. Hoping this next one is as good as 3 was.

Posted by FaPaThY

I started with Tropico 4 and had/have a lot of fun with it. Looking forward to this.

Posted by bingbangboom

Is it me or are the platforms weird? PC, Xbox 360, PS4 and Linux? Looks like they are bringing it on almost everything, why not Xbox One or PS3?

God bless the people that make these.

Tropico is such an underrated series. Although i was let down by 4, especially that HORRIFIC 'modern times' expansion that added new buildings with vastly worse textures than the old and that basically broke the game

LMAO....I laughed waaaay more than I should've in that....
