Reviews for Airport Control Simulator
Good game but a simulation gamebritishlad | June 16, 2013 | See all britishlad's reviews »
If you're looking for an Airport Control Simulation, this isn't it. This is more of a casual game of landing planes all by yourself, so you have to guide each plane's speed, altitude and direction, and aim for the runway and it is a very good but it's a shame it's recieved a lot of negative reviews
Once you bypass the notion that this is a simulation of you in an air traffic control tower giving orders, and then hoping the planes do your requests obediently, then this is quite an interesting game. One plane's easy, you just put your finger on the plane, bring altitude down low enough for the runway, guide it towards the runway, and slow it down enough to be able to land. Now try it with two, then three, then seven! Now it gets a little like a puzzle game, which do you go for first, which ones next.
The only negative for the game is the penalty if the plane gets close to the edge of the screen. Granted, that's not where the plane should go, but some maps have the runways very close to the edge of the screen, and that loses it a star - although the cynical amongst us would say this is intentional, try to land a plane with limited moving space, and get a penalty if you fail on the challenge. Well, it still loses the star, as you get the penalty if the plane hits your HUD on the screen as well!
Otherwise, this is a puzzle game, not a simulation. Understand that, and if you like puzzles, then this is a good game to enjoy.
A beautiful and highly detailed simulator!Xbomborz | Nov. 18, 2011 | See all Xbomborz's reviews »
Airport Control Simulator is one of the best simulators I have played in a long time. With great graphics, awesome and involving gameplay, and realistic goals and scenarios, this game is extremely complete and worth its great price. If you have been looking for a great simulator and are especially interested in those involving flight, this game is for you.
