I know nothing about them butI might grab 5 and see what it's like. What strategy games are they most similar too?

Loved the music in 3, 4 was 3 perfected. 5 is glitchy last time I checked.

They're kinda like sim city

Great, they're probably most similar to more personal town sims like Banished or The Guild, maybe a little Black and White.

5 is all you need out of the previous 3, but I'd still recommend getting the Tropico Reloaded pack next time it's on sale for 2, since it's the one that wasn't like the others - have you a little pirate shanty town :D

2 is fantastic, 5 is decent, 4 is the best with all the DLC because of the patching and engine polish. Dodge 3 though ,it blows.

I just bought 5 for $30 on GMG and Trilogy (the first 3) on gamers gate for $20. I guess I'll grab 4 too, if I like them.

Thanks guys!

And the best "radio" guy too, iirc. And best fluff and humor in general. But the worst gameplay.

I kept hearing that 3 was better than 4, because 4 is essentially the same game with worse graphics.

Vanilla 4 is the same as 3 but with no noticeable graphical improvement. All the DLC for 4 make it a great game. Tropico 5 is a complete revamp and looks like once they're done with the DLC it will be a gem.
