The amount there is to do and the depth of its political mechanics make Tropico 6 stand out over its immediate predecessors. It's a tropical vacation worth taking when you're looking for an in-depth city-builder with strong personality and a touch of humor, which is something of a rarity outside of this long-running series. But drink too deeply of its perplexing economic systems and you may find yourself feeling a bit queasy.
Tropico 6, in the end, is still an enjoyable dictator-em-up with a laid-back quirky attitude, but the next version must either reinvent the formula or give up on the theme. Six El Presidentes might be enough for the world, so maybe Haemimont went to survive on Mars because of it.
Now, Tropico 6 is hardly a perfect game. The series has always been a bit janky in spots. I ran into one particular bug where I needed a certain number of citizens in prison to meet an objective, but the game refused to notice my already depressingly high incarceration rate. Luckily, bugs like this can be patched and a lengthy beta promises to have addressed glitches like this as soon as possible.
