For fans of the city building genre, Tropico probably isn’t a game you’ve missed. Having only dabbed in a couple of odd instances of Sim City 2000 myself over the years I really never gave the Tropico series much of a look. My first real introduction to the series came from a behind the scenes preview of Tropico 6 at the Kalypso booth at E3 2017. I was enjoying what I saw so I ended up picking up a copy of Tropico 5 shortly after.
I have been playing Tropico 6 for the last couple of days a part of my ongoing review and man is it addicting! I haven’t played enough of it to render my final judgement of the game but if city building and managing is your thing you are going to love Tropico 6!
