    An airline simulator

    • Amount of stuff
    • "realistic" environment
    • Strategy and management fans will love it
    • More original stuff would be great (weather, security)
    • Animations, TV news, loudspeaker: FX welcomed

    "Passengers to Kuala Lumpur, please proceed to gate 3"

    Air Tycoon is a turn-based strategy game in which you manage an airline. It's both micro-management, there's a lot of micromanagement to maximize profit for every plane and terminal, from how much tickets cost to how much your staff earn; and macro-management, when you decide to cancel existing routes and open new ones.

    The amount of info is huge, with several hundred real airports (yep, rush to find yours!) and airplanes, every one with its own stats and upgradeable individually. There's also people and cargo traffic, leasing options if you can't spend on brand-new planes but want not to go second-hand, a fuel market ups and downs conditioning the whole thing and more, much more.

    In case it wasn't clear enough, it's a very comprehensive game, replayable many times just by changing your initial airport or strategy.

    Graphics and user interface are adequate. More animations and loudspeaker voices would have been greatly welcomed, and in a macabre way, accidents and terrorism should have been an issue, too, let alone weather and natural disasters.

    This game is played against up to 24 AI-controlled players, but have for sure you won't want so many competitors when you first play. Unfortunately, you can't play online, which this game would fit for sure given its asynchronous nature.

    Anyway, recommendable for management and strategy freaks. It can be played for free for two in-game years. Then, you'll have to purchase the complete game in order to proceed.
