5.0 out of 5 stars top class game
This game is possibly the best business management game i have played. Graphically the game isnt stunning consdering its only a 2dish engine and it doesn't try anything special but thats not neccessairily a bad thing, it means there's nothing dodgy and its all smooth and quite pleasing on the eyes.
I found this game very simple to get into, as soon as you know how...

5.0 out of 5 stars top class game, 27 May 2004

This review is from: Airline Tycoon (PC CD) (Video Game)
This game is possibly the best business management game i have played. Graphically the game isnt stunning consdering its only a 2dish engine and it doesn't try anything special but thats not neccessairily a bad thing, it means there's nothing dodgy and its all smooth and quite pleasing on the eyes.
I found this game very simple to get into, as soon as you know how book flights and what you're actually required to do, everything else is plain sailing and your knowledge gradually develops.
The gameplay is simple, but brilliant. Racing your opposition to the flight desk, making sure you're the highest bidder on branches across the world, praying there'll be a £million freight flight that one of your planes can handle, finding a great deal on a 2nd hand plane, the list goes on and its all satisfying fun. Some missions are new and inventive which add to the lastability of the game, but i personally prefer having a peaceful game on free play.
However, the game has its occasional downfalls. Once you have played free play for a while, you will find you'll have enough money to takeover all your competitors before you'll have to fork out hundreds of millions for top quality planes or expand into new routes but some missions overcome that problem.
The game is also a bit unreliable, there is a chance that it will freeze in the middle of an unsaved game or the character voices cut off (both of which i have experienced) but these shouldn't be frequent enough to stop you enjoying your game.
So, to summarise, a good game and a recommended buy

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple fun, 18 Mar 2007

= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Airline Tycoon (PC CD) (Video Game)
It's a simple, fun, easy to use game. You're the boss of a new airline and have to operate charter, scheduled and cargo flights to make a profit and beat your competitors. Easy. And with 48 airports, it has lots of challenges (with some airports like Hawaii, you can't use the B737 you start with on any route of possible order).

The cartoon graphics are also quite good, but some of the accents are rather hideous. The game has been translated from German, and the german-cum-russian accents are out of place everywhere, and the speech is fragmented, hence only 4 stars for "overall"

But it's still a fun game that, over a year after purchasing, I'm still playing occasionally. A worthwhile investment for any tycoon fan.

I originally loved this game, but after a while, I just didn't get it. It was a great price though and did entertain me for a while so I would rate this as 'fair.'

This review is from: Airline Tycoon (PC CD) (Video Game)
It was a good game when I was a child but now as a teenager it doesn't appeal to me like it used to. Its a good present for a child aged 7-13 but then it doesn't really fly with me. Buy the new one which is much better

4.0 out of 5 stars SIMPLE BUT GREAT!, 1 Aug 2005
This review is from: Airline Tycoon (PC CD) (Video Game)
I love this game - its so adictive and funny. There isnt a wide range of things to do but what you got is enough to keep you going. I dont advise this game on a top pc gamer but is perfect for a young teen or someone who is easy to please - like me

This review is from: Airline Tycoon (PC CD) (Video Game)
this game is very gripping but takes a while to work out as the tutorial lasts for about 3 mins once you have worked out how to play the game you see there is more to the game than first meets the eye. i would have liked more help i have played many othere tycoon games and this has been the most difficult to understand at first but is very good

4.0 out of 5 stars Airline Tycoon, 1 Jun 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: Airline Tycoon (PC CD) (Video Game)
This game is great at 1st, but quickly gets boring after the first couple of weeks. the graphics are great visually and the playability is awesome. Once you got the hang of the initial problem of instalation then this game is great for kids aged 5 to 10 years old....
