Tropico 4 is definitely worth it if you like RTS games. I tried T5 but I didn't like the changes made.

what's the game style someone knows?
Like a mix of SIM city and the Sims. You don't get to control individual citizens but you can imprison/assassinate them.

What about 5 did you not like? I loved 4 and wouldn't mind trying 5 for 7 bucks if it is any good.

I played Tropico 4 and 5 on the PS4 and loved them. I am going to buy 5 for the pc since I sold my PS4 a bit ago. Great game!

There was a bug with 5, not sure if it was ever patched, don't think it was. No matter how you build your city, you're always overrun with homeless people in shacks. You can't escape it, so frustrating. Even if you have the lowest housing costs, people still prefer to live in the shacks

Seems they did the "dumbed down for the masses" thing with 5 like they did to the Sims.

Tropico 4 was the perfect mix of complexity and fun.

From the review

Tropico 5, which is simply another iteration on Tropico 3, isn't a faster, smarter or better experience than its predecessor. It's just different. You had a blue hacienda, now you've given a fresh coat of paint and it's a red one. It's as if you gave two teams Tropico 3 and asked them to improve on it. One took the clutter and cut it to give us Tropico 4, while another simply moved the clutter around, changed some game mechanics, couldn't reach the mark of their own ambition and gave us Tropico 5.

Yes 4 is recommended. Also make sure you at least buy the base game with Modern times DLC.

Great prices for these ganes. Loved 4 and 5. I miss the presidente speeches from 4, and 5 really nickel and dimed people on the DLC when they first came out.

Can't wait for 6!

That bundle has Rise of the Triad. Used to love that game.

I wonder if they'll ever have a US Government one, that'd be interesting. Just change the title and you're good to go!
