  • 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.

    the demo was fun, but bland so hoping the game would be fix this i bought it, unfortunately the game was full of bugs and broken. to start out the manual is full of spelling and grammar mistakes, and completely unhelpful. then once i got through one or two years the game started bugging out everywhere:"do not have enough bus stops" when i had over 200, planes stopped landing, i got a free building and i started getting heaps of free money. there is a meager two scenarios which take 15 minutes and are barely different from the normal mode. i love the concept its a pity the game is completely broken. 26/100 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..........

    The worst thing in the game that I particularly hated is the fact that the clock counts as real life, and when the advancing speed hours, the planes continue at the same speed. A critical bug for those who like realism. Waiting all day to actually see the plane land at your airport? Only for those who have a lot of patience. Expand
