Cheers!

If you can get Tropico 4 cheap on the PC go for it. 5's good and the graphics have been updated. But I did like 4 better if I'm honest.

However if you haven't played a Tropico game, just do it. They are very good.

Ah good find, thanks.

It's a great price but (and this isn't an easy comparison) I paid £16 for the PC version. Xbox games are obviously often more expensive but even at £16 I felt a bit let down as the campaign is quite short and it doesn't have much replay value (unlike Tropico 4).

That is more a review of the game than a comment on this being a good deal (which for a brand new xbox game on pre-order it's a fantastic deal!). So heat to the poster/deal but I really don't feel Tropico 5 is worth £25.99

Very much enjoyed 4 on the Xbox but the game is too easy, alright for an hour or so but then becomes a bit samey. Will still go for 5 at some point but only a 'GOTY' edition with any/all DLC and around £15, not worth more than that

I love Tropico games but unfortunately my pc isn't good enough to play Tropico 5 and the 360 has been relegated to my daughters room. Oh well, I'll wait for the ps4 version.

3 was much better than 4. hope 5 goes back to fun. 4 had way too many options to build.
