  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.

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. Full Review »

    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 outthe 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 Full Review »

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" Full Review »
