Tropico 6, as you would expect from the title alone, is a 'banana republic simulator' that gives you total control over a small island nation. What happens next is going to be entirely up to your playstlye. You can turn your lovely island nation into a dictatorship whose entire goal is to scrounge up as much money as possible through illegal goods, you can play it completely straight and just pretend you're a small colony of a giant empire, or you can just strike off on your own and attempt to create a veritable utopia for your people.

If you're wondering how all of this might look like in gameplay terms, however, allow me to share with you one of the most recent trailers. It should give you a pretty good idea of what you can expect from Tropico 6. Have a peek:

I haven't played Tropico 6 myself as I'm still working through a massive backlog, but from what I can see online it appears to be the same story as the other Tropico games. The newest installment has brought with it some minor gameplay improvements, overhauled the visuals and added a couple of new features, but it's still pretty much the same game. So if you've enjoyed the previous Tropico games there's a pretty good chance you'll like Tropico 6 as well, while those of you that don't like the simulator-style gameplay will likely not find anything that changes their mind.

Before you make any sort of decision, however, you can learn a little bit more about Tropico 6 by visiting either Steam or the official website. Enjoy!
