Features of Tropico 5

    The Eras - From the 19th century to the 21st, each era carries its own challenges and opportunities. Begin your reign during colonial times and advance your nation through the modern era and into the future!

    The Dynasty Ė Each member of El Presidenteís extended family is present on the island and may be appointed to key leadership positions, earning skills and experience in their assigned roles.

    Research and Renovate - Advance your nation by discovering new buildings, technologies and resources. Transform your old buildings into modernized, hyper-efficient designs worthy of an economic superpower!

    Advanced trade system and trade fleet - Amass a global trade fleet and use your ships to secure import/export trade routes to neighbouring islands and key nations.

    Explore your island - Discover what lies beyond the fog of war. Send prospectors to look for new mineral and ore deposits, but be wary of hostile animals and native tribes.

    All new art - All artwork is reworked to provide Tropico 5 with a distinct historic visual identity. Choose from over 100 unique buildings from each of the individual eras.

    Cooperative and competitive multiplayer Ė Up to four players can build up their own cities and economies on any given island map. Players can share resources and citizens, or declare war on each other.

Yeah, I know the feeling.  I played the original Tropico game a ton (and to a lesser extent Tropico 2: Pirate Cove) but for some reason I can't really get into these ones. 

Part of it I think is that they lost the humor in the citizens.  There was a lot of charm in the little dudes from the original games that just felt sterile in these ones from Haemimont.

I have 1 through 3 on Steam, but never touched them because 4 was announced shortly after I bought them for dirt cheap in a bundle.  I thought I had bought Tropico 4 on Steam at a later point, and even remember playing it until I got annoyed with people complaining about lack of work even with plenty of jobs to fill, but it is not in my Steam library nor does Steam say I own it.  I don't see it listed in any of my other libraries from GMG, Gamersgate or elsewhere either.  how odd.

I played 1 a lot, never got 2, played 3 only a little bit, but I'm really happy with 4. I just hope they don't jack up the computer requirements for 5.

At least they aren't re-using the textures like they did from 3 to 4....
