    FINALLY - a strategic game for ps4

    I've been waiting for a game that actually requires thinking. If you like games like football manager or other "stats" / "planning" games, you'll love Tropico. It's a lot about economic development, planning, zoning, etc. It's NOT about picking colorful patterns or making things look pretty and cute (cough cough The Sims cough), but about making a thriving economy. If you've ever heard the phrase "benevolent dictatorship" when it comes to Smithian economics, this is your opportunity to execute that...or actually to run a completely totalitarian regime to see what happens. Highly recommend this for critical thinkers of economics, NOT for action-game fans who want to blow stuff up. Not that kind of game.

    Fun, but campaign was really short. Not worth the$

    Wait to by until you can get used and cheaper. I was really disappointed in the quick campaign and limited options. Also I haven't noticed a free build mode where you can just waste some time perfecting your island. It was entertaining and challenging and I did like it, just disappointed with the cost and the shortness of the campaign.

    If you like strategy games like I do, you will like this game. I'm about 4-5 hours into it and love everything about it. Controls are pretty simple, it took me a few hours to learn the process but once you do, there are a lot of things that you can controll.

    I've only played it for a few hours. I thought using the controller slow the game down since it is really is a PC game. Good news is that yes while slower than mouse/keyboard, it is still a good experience. Plus the game is challenging on normal mode.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Fun but Engrossing

    I'm having a lot of fun playing this game, but be aware that it can be very engrossing. It's not a game to just pick up when you're bored and have a few minutes. It's very detailed and complicated and can take over hours of your life if you let it.

    Fun little PC sim game that has now been ported over to the PS4. Graphics and music are nice and gameplay is pretty standard "sim-type" fare. Tutorials are nice and simple and provide a great introduction to the game.

    Really fun game to play, it took me about 3 games to figure out the control config. and what they do. Now I'm on trying to beat the game on many different challenges.

    This game is a lot of fun, but only if you like city building games. If you enjoy that niche, then it is pretty fun. Lots of game modes, and customized maps which I like.

    This game is enjoyable. Not sure what took them so long to make as thus far it seems relatively simple. A good way to pass the time.
