Island Tribe 5
Under the Sea
If you have played the other Island Tribe games, this one is quite similar. However, they are under the sea with new buildings such as a kelp farm and a pearl farm. You can click ahead which is great. You get different modes, such as untimed, etc. which is also a plus. I must say, Island Tribe 3 and 4 were my favorites. This one not so much. Not sure why. Seems they are more rushed, meaning the characters are racing all over like they did in the first 2 installments of this game. I like it anyway.

On the 5th go-round, it's disappointing.
I am a fan of Island Tribe; I have all 5 releases and was excited to see this one. However, it took me little time to play the game out, with very little challenge. There is almost no new artwork to look forward to, the challenge is next to nothing, and the game over was quickly. This 5th release should have had 60 level before bonus levels, new and exciting artwork and challenges - but there was not of that. Overall, as a follower, I am disappointed and will not jump so fast to purchase on the next release from Realore.

Could have been a better challenge
I love time management games so when one comes available I pretty much buy it straight away, this game was the 5th game in this series and I have to say it did let me down slightly there was no challenge at all, I played the game in expert and I could have played for 5mins went and had a hr nap and came back and still had plenty of time to finish my level, it was crazy I had over half of my time left on every level! When I play expert I expect to have a play a few time to get it to that point! other than that it was fine, just like the others

Island Tribe 5
Pretty much the same as all the previous Island Tribes except that they are underwater. Only problem is that they have the replay and ok buttons in the wrong place. Most games have the ok button on the right and one kind of gets used to that, so it is easy to press the wrong button and have to play yhe same level again!

I just finished Island Tribe 5 in Expert Mode and it was absolutely not challenging as it was in Island Tribe 3 or 4 (where I still didn't manage to finish all levels in time). I didn't had to repeat a single level.
The levels itself had been nice with some good new ideas.
But after all still disappointing and in my opinion a waste of money.

Stuck on level 5
Can anyone help find the kelp on level 5? I own all the games and can't figure out what is different. Is there a kelp factory somewhere. There isn't enough kelp laying around to complete the level.

Decent game, but boring if you've played the others in the series.
I've played all of the Island Tribe games, and I really wanted to like this one, but it was too easy and too mundane. Beautiful graphics, cute characters, good gameplay... but not very original. And the levels didn't get any harder, so there wasn't any challenge as the game went on. Bummer.

I wonder if those who gave this game 5 stars gave their rating only based on the demo. You are only under water during the first levels which takes the time the demo lasts..... After that you're on land and the game is pretty much the same as the earlier versions except that most of the time the workers have to run longer paths and you have less upgrades for your buildings and many more "monsters" so it takes much longer to get enough resources to progress in the level. Next to that the strategy value is reduced to zero since the game pretty much dictates what you have to do next. No options to try it a different way.
That's why I call it misleading. The first levels are fastpaced and promising with 90% different buildings and "monsters",but as soon as you get on land(when the demo is over!) you have 90% the same buildings and "monsters"and the levels are downright boring and less entertaining than in earlier versions. Just mindless clicking and waiting for your resources. I didn't even finish the game. There are four "islands", each with 10 levels and I kept on playing hoping it would get better on the next "island" but it didn't. I quit at level 34. No replay value what so ever so I regret I bought it.
I'm sorry about this! I really enjoyed the first 4.......

Like several other reviewers I have all the other Island Tribe games but this one is just boring. There is no need to think about what to develop first in order to succeed in time and the hints at the load screen for each level have obviously just been transferred from earlier versions as some do not apply to this game. Too often you have done everything you can and are just waiting for enough resources to accumulate to proceed to the next stage. I shall probably finish it because I have spent the money but would not recommend this game to anyone

Too Much of the same
as other reviewers have pointed out, this is actually a disappointment once you get into it, in fact I have given up on it as it got very tedious and repetitive
Think they should make this the last one.
