This game is fun, however.. not finished.
I've already had alot of fun with the game,
Let me start with saying that this is my first Tropico game.
I'll state my opinion on the positive and negative aspects below:
This game has a great sense of humor, everytime you research something you'll get your general reporting to you in a somewhat.. weird form. It can certainly provide you with a laugh from time to time.
I still haven't got far due to the invasions and rebels, but i've already notices that there is a variety of missions to play.
You can even pick one of the two islands which you are going to play a certain mission on.
Lots of quests and tasks, there is always a goal for you.
The first thing i noticed, and which also became my downfall and got me quite angry with the game.. is the military(war) system. You build military posts which exist out of one squad of soldiers. Can you control them? No! During invasions or rebel events you cannot control your forces. Even if it's 10 squads against five you will probably still lose due to the horrible path-finding system. You cannot control your squad. They go to a certain building and will not engage with any enemy troops on the way. Mostly the squads will just walk around aimlessy, not defending anything.. while your building are being burned down. For instance, one squad gets to the enemy and gets into a fight.. they'll get slaughtered because it'll most likely be 5 squads versus 1. And that's basically how i lost all the time. Not to mention that the rebels are quite overpowered.
Trading & Items
I am quite disappointed with this, In the beginning i had the idea i could control my economy. But there isn't even a storage building where your people bring the goods to, they just ship off at regular prices automatically. You can browse the trade offers manually and send one of your own ships to buy or sell products, however. But yet no actual gather and build system, that's a big thing that's just missing..
I am missing the Stronghold idea.
What i mean with this is basically i'm missing to see my country workers actually work, going to the taverns, church, free time spendations.. etc soldiers patrolling the streets, vehicles picking up goods and the delivering them to a certain location(A to B), more depth in the building constructions carryíng planks and goods and hammeríng, sawíng buildings together. That's one big thing that's missing for me.
Sad'ly there is more negativity in my mind than positive, thus the reason i marked my review as negative.
However it's still a fun game, but i do not agree with the 50,00 euro's we're getting charged.
In-Fact, I had an update today.. a minor updates but no 'new' things. I doubt they'll ever be coming. There are still DLC'S coming along the way.
