Geez, It looks like SimCity should have taken some pointers from these guys! Looks great!

Having never played a Tropico game before, perhaps this is the time to jump in!

@mrfluke: Honest question. Why would you (or anyone) want to play an RTS, especially a city builder with a controller? Even if you have a pretty shitty PC, the experience, in my opinion would be far superior with a mouse and keyboard.

So excited!

End of May huh.. time to sink another 60 hours into Tropico 4. Could not be more excited, this series has become my city-builder of choice, ever since SimCity 2013 was so thoroughly disappointing.

@blackspur: I wouldn't be surprised if the developers add mouse and keyboard support for the PS4 version FF14 for PS4 has it so it shouldn't be that tough to implement.. I played Tropico 3 on the 360 and i thought it was totally fine on a controller.

well, i see what your saying, but i just dont have a Powerful PC to run these types of games well, and im just comfortable on a controller, like tropico 3, and 4, on the 360 had a good control scheme going for it.

and this should be better/snappier since the ps4 has the touchpad and they can potentially use the ps camera to do voice commands. (tomb raider on ps4 used this to change weapons, and i found it very intuitive)

Still really bummed to see that there are still no roads beyond 2 lanes. For some reason that has always made my cities feel way too cramped and fake.

Tropico is my favorite city builder now a days, so good to hear 5 is out so soon.

Maybe this will get me back into Tropico. 4 Just didn't quite have enough changes to it.

I spent about 20 hours in Tropico 3, and mostly enjoyed it, but the difficulty in getting the workers to build anything made me lose my interest. I wonder if it would be worth checking out now that's it's been through a few iterations. Certainly is tempting.

@blackspur: I tried the 360 version of Tropico 3 (i think) once just to see how it handled, and it actually works really well. There isn't a whole lot of minute detail or speed required. I mean, an RTS, sure, but Tropico (and Sim City, really) are laid back enough that playing with a controller wouldn't have any adverse effect.

@mrfluke: Alright, now you're talking crazy. How is using a voice command to change weapons better than hitting a direction on a dpad? The touchpad is also not very good, as much as I like the rest of the PS4 controller.

I'm surprised that truck didn't run over the guy at 0:16

I love Tropico. I may even get the PS4 version if works well with a controller.

@viking_funeral:

Oh man, those godamn construction workers, they NEVER do what you want them to. I wish there was way to execute one of them or something to 'motivate' the others sometimes, cause they can piss me off so badly.

Awesome so excited for the ps4 release! I don't have a gaming pc in any sense of the word.
