Tropico 6 on Switch has a lot of content and a highly customisable sandbox mode, however it suffers some slight performance drops particularly in handheld mode that makes the port difficult to recommend fully.
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 is the city-builder series as satirical and silly as it's always been, but with a few new bells and whistles that improve the solid winning formula. It's a sideways step in many ways, but it's still a pretty confident one from the series' new developer.
Tropico 6 is one of PlayStation 4's best strategy games, and also one of its most unique, putting you into the shoes of a dictator rather than the standard benevolent overseer that most of these titles offer. Taking your tropical island from shacks and farms to skyscrapers and space plans is a lot fun, and there's enough variety in map design and mission objectives to mean that you'll rarely feel like you're repeating the same beats. And honestly, the music really is pretty good.
Tropico 6 doesn't mess with the island building formula very much, but the new features kept me hooked for hours.
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.
