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.
