    I was in my local GAME yesterday and saw adverts for the forthcoming release of Tropico 5. Not knowing anything about the franchise I took a look on YouTube and as it expected it's a management game.
    Not sure if it's really the sort of game for me.
    Do any Oldies have any experience or views/opinions on the Tropico games on the PC?

    Thoughts welcome

    My biggest concern would be how well the control scheme translates. Strategy titles have generally been pretty clunky on console. Other than that, Tropico is a well regarded PC series.

    That said I'm in no way invested in finding out as these games aren't for me. I don't hate them like I hate RTSs but I'm not fond.

    I got one of the Tropico games free on steam, wasn't too keen but that is purely due to my own tastes, not because it is crap.

    Had a Tropico game as Amy free game offer when I joined OnLive a few years ago.
    If you like Sim City type games then you'll probably like Tropico 5.
    If not you won't.

    I've banned all "management games" from my life. Civ III nearly got me fired in the day. "After I connect these villages with a road, I will really go to bed......." So I should probably stay far away from this.








    But if there were a Vita version.....

    got it on release, its actually pretty good,as Gimp said, it doesnt take itself too seriously,
    really enjoying it tbh, kinda makes me wish there was an LMA Manager or another sort of strategy game coming.

    Tropico in the sale now aswell...
    Tempted to get it but all my game time spent on Witcher atm.

    See Metro is back in the sale again, when isn't it?
    Pretty sure it will end up on plus, most game frequently put on sale end up on plus.
