Tropico 6 stands out as an in-depth city-builder with a strong personality, but its economic systems are unwieldy.
An entertaining but unambitious sequel that collects up the best features of previous games and adds in some interesting new twists.
A new developer doesn't rock the boat in what's an enjoyable if only gently iterative outing for the construction and management sim.
New missions and tasks come at a steady clip, so you're never at a loss for things to do. Even so, I had the most fun when I went off-script and created my own goals
Tropico 6 builds on strong foundations, honing detail and offering expansive new sandboxes in which to craft your ideal island nation.
Despite its flaws, Tropico 6 will definitely cause you to stay up later than you should. If you’re willing to forgive the lack of structure, you can spend hours and hours building on each of the included maps.
Tropico 6 is a safe bet. A sequel that has almost no innovations but manages to feel fresh and funny from the start. El Presidente is back, as good as he has ever been.

Tropico 6 is the best game I've played all year. It reminds me of all the classic strategy games I used to love, and yet it doesn't make me yearn for them. That's because Limbic Entertainment managed to nail just what makes strategy games so fun.
It’s a confident game that plays it safe, offering simple iterations and smart tweaks to the already well-trodden and successful styling of the series to offer up an entry that, at the very least, is superior to its direct predecessor.
Tropico 6 is an entertaining fun, which guarantees many hours of management and strategy, with a well-leveled difficulty. Although it is inevitable not to think that it is a low-risk and original work.

Tropico 6 is the best in the series to date, taking the personality and humour from previous titles and adding extras that make being El Presidente feel better than ever.
Tropico 6 is a blast when things are going well, but frustrating when they aren't.
There’s plenty of stuff I’d change, especially tonally and in terms of international relationships, but I played it happily until I couldn’t see straight.
Tropico 6 overhauls the entire infrastructure, bringing forward most, but not all of the features we had with previous outings. A greater emphasis on transportation and simulation deepens the experience and makes Tropicans feel less like mere numbers. At its heart, Tropico 6 is still a game about building your empire and making it grow, but it's the small mechanics that create a connection with your benevolent dictator, and help make your anarchy-prone archipelago feel a little like home.
Ultimately, Tropico 6 is a game that any fan of city builders will enjoy, and I highly recommend checking it out if you're one of those people.
Tropico 6 doesn't mess with the island building formula very much, but the new features kept me hooked for hours.
Tropico 6 is the best entry in the series, though not without its flaws. The repetition of random requests with no real direct relation to how your city is developing is always an irritation to me. The economics of the city is especially well developed, though areas like the superpowers feel tacked on at best. Fortunately, new features like raids help the game stand out from its predecessors.
Tropico 6 brings a lot to the table. It is pretty to look at, easy to get started with, and offers hours of play time with its generous depth and breadth in multiple categories of human life.
Tropico 6 doesn’t need to reinvent the wheel—no matter what El Presidente claims—to be a great experience. There’s never been a better time to take a trip to the Caribbean
Witty political satire? Check. Lovely latin music soundtrack? Check. Solid city builder gameplay? Check. Is this Tropico 6? Tropico 5? Tropico 4? Loyal Penultimo would struggle to spot the difference, and players might decide at some point to ditch El Presidente for a new one bringing some fresh air... if only there was one in sight.
