Mike’s Musings: I absolutely love the Tropico franchise. By far one of my favorite PC games, I’ve already logged a good 30-plus hours into Tropico 5. The game definitely took everything right with Tropico 4 and put it on steroids to make it the best game in series. As you can tell by the sales numbers, I’m not the only one who thinks that.
