Tropico 5 cuts out the fat of previous entries and builds upon its strongest features. While the new dynasty system is disappointing, the narrative context provided by eras and world events is outstanding.

It's a tropical vacation, always pleasant and relaxing… and one that you're always ready to leave behind.

Not a dramatic reinvention, but still an enjoyable game of construction, economics and election fraud.
