  • Summary: Design, build and maintain your very own international airport in this amazingly in-depth management simulation. Get started by buying land and building runways, and then secure both cargo and passenger airline contracts. Watch your creation come to life as your airport bustles with the activities of planes, cars and passengers in detailed 3D-rendered graphics. But be careful! Bad weather, overbooked flights, bottlenecks on the runway, and aircraft collisions are all part of the job. Do you think you can keep your customers safe and happy on the way to becoming the ultimate airport manager? [Global Star Software] Expand

  1. It would have been nice if the different locations offered differing challenges, or at least a variety of building materials and styles.
  2. For whatever progress that the series makes in this third installment, it's undone by lackluster gameplay and poor execution.
  3. The game feels empty and sterile. The airport never comes to life despite your best efforts. The game didn't hold my interest any longer an hour and I just didn't care to track down any help on the net.

    Although AT3 gets points for actually having an interesting setting--in theory--the execution not only leaves something to be desired, but is often downright numbing.

    I think it's a great game... To unpause the game, you'll have to click on the airplane icon on the bottom left pane... duh... experiment with the controls if you find problems with a game. Don't just rush into saying negative remarks about someone's hard work.... Cheers Expand

    Could have a little bit more traffic and different building styles but otherwise it is OK. Actualy I gave this grade just because I'm in love with flying (and planes) and I alwys wantd to have a Airport tycoon. Expand

    If I had not tried Airport Tycoon 1 and 2 beforehand I would rate this a 0. It scores one point just for being marginally less tedious than they were. Why oh why can't someone write a decent airport sim? Expand

    It only gets a 1 because I was able to find a way to launch the game. Realistically inaccurate by 4 1/2 miles, and half of the objects are scripted but don't appear in game, or crash it when you click on it. The graphics are OK for the time, but everything else is horrible. If you feel like buying this game, don't, at least give your money to charity so it does something better in this world than support this awful "Game" Expand

    I actually really like this game....But in this game,there are lot of bugs!Here they are:
    -If I build too many buildings,The game crashes
    very often,until I must restart my laptop because of this.
    -If I play scenarios (e.g Mexico City,Crime And Fire) This game always says that "you don't have enough bus stops",even I HAVE BUILT THEM TOO MANY ! I'VE PUT THEM EVERY 50 METERS IN OCCUPIED AREA IN MY AIRPORT ! And again,The game said that "If you like to get money from re-fueling,you should build a plane maintenance".EVEN I'VE BUILT 4-6 PLANE MAINTENANCE BUILDINGS !!!! Looks like I will un-install this game very soon..........
