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
