Tropico 5: This revolution is more of a refinement

Tropico 5 is still the best Caribbean dictator simulator on the market (whatever that means) and honestly one of the most refined city builders out there. However, the series has backed itself into a corner by choosing such a niche idea for a game—it's increasingly clear there's not a lot of ways for Tropico to evolve as a franchise.
Tropico 5 is the most refined Tropico yet, but if you've played one in the past that might not be enough to draw you back in this time. And even if it is, I don't think it's enough to justify a Tropico 6 without some enormous changes to the formula. A revolution, as it were.
