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.

    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 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.

The game was crashing, the terminals were not working, planes not leaving, but thanks to some very skilled modders Airport Tycoon 3 was brought back to life. New airlines added, new planes added, all the buildings are free, terminal 7 and 8 fixed. So yeah with this mods, pretty much my dream game. Expand

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" Collapse

    I have seen 1 and 2. 3 is no better. The game pauses itself and won't unpause no matter what happens. It's nearly impossible to I have seen 1 and 2. 3 is no better. The game pauses itself and won't unpause no matter what happens. It's nearly impossible to play this game for more than about an hour without getting bored enough to eat stones. Chasing information down on their website rewards you with broken links, jet sounds that turn back on after you turn them off (with every new screen) and in general extremely poor programming, logic and game play. Before buying this game consider an intense colon cleansing. It'll be more fun and more rewarding. Expand
