I do have a few complaints, though. Why do they limit you to four stinking runways? My local, municipal airport (the town has a population of 98,000) has more than that! Why do shops whose contracts you've regected REPEATEDLY continue to apply? Why is the tutorial so bad? If you still don't like this game and want another bargain-basement "Tycoon," I highly recommend Railroad Tycoon II- Gold Edidtion.
The sound effects are realistic while inside of terminals, thought they are nothing to speak of. They are simply computer-generated effects with common airport phrases.
Game play is very confusing at first as the manual provided is very meager, and the tutorial does not teach very much. When starting, a choice of countries and cities is presented with a difficulty level for each location. After choosing the location, three plots of land are available at different distances from the city, and higher or lower prices.
Following selection of a land plot and purchasing the land, an empty area is shown, and the airport creation process begins. To open the airport, at least one runway is necessary, along with a terminal. (I tried creating a cargo airport, however this did not work.) Once the necessary elements are in place, you press a button on the toolbar to 'cut the ribbon' and open the runway(s) for use.
In building the airport, you have a certain quota of cash to spend, and then you must rely on the income from shops and flights in your airport. This is realistic, however loans can not be taken out. Another issue in constructing an airport is the limitation on the number of runways that can be built a maximum of four. Take Chicago O'Hare airport for example, it has seven runways, one which is 13,000 feet long. The game does not strive for realism in that or several other respects, but in some it does.
Airline contracts will be presented, and as the manager of the airport, you must decide whether to take them up or not. Runway slots for each flight must be assigned.Read more ›

This is one of the best games I have ever played. You get to run your own airport in many locations. You should buy this game. I play it all the time!Published on June 17, 2006 by Marc J. Defant
