Airport Simulator,

Isn't a game for every one, but it's ideal if you want to play something easy with your small kids. They can try to drive the different vehicles to the designated spots. (Which is basically the only thing you do in this game)

As such it's a nice game.

If you're looking for a more fast paced or micro management game, than this is not really it, because it's rather casual.

this game ...jeez, this is the video game version of watching paint dry. now the game wouldnt be that bad if the games pace steped up but nothing happens. i played the game for 45 minutes and i was still waiting for all the tasks to complete on the first plane that arrives when i booted it up. the game uses a real time system so when you have to say load the passengers it will say 12 minutes. that is 12 minutes of waiting and doing nothing, sure you can get into a van and look around the airport but ...thats it. thats all there is, make sure all the tasks are done then wait for the task to complete and then nothing then repeat. i feel this game could of been good if the overall speed was improved and mabey some animation of luggage or passengers coming in and out of the plans.

dont get this game. i paid £1.99 and feel it was a complete waste, i would have rather got a coffee from my local store and enjoyed that.

Well, Airport Simulator 2014, they sure broke the mould when they made this game! The game itself, it starts off slow, VERY slow, and then once you start generating little bits of cash and start to upgrade your gates, it starts to get slightly more entertaining! Then, if you're like me, and you upgrade all of your gates, once you upgrade every gate to level 1, there's nothing to do, besides escort cargo for a cargo plane! I told myself everyday, 'Don't worry Josh, ride the wave, you'll do it and finish the game tonight'... I said that for 4 consecutive days... 4 FUDGING DAYS!!! But, i did it... I got the confirmation message, telling me that i'd completed the game and couldn't upgrade my gates any longer and saved myself from dropping into the deep hole of pure insanity!! Never been so happy! I'd recommend it, IF the player had time, and patience, and time... And patience! 4/10

Hey you, yeah you, do you like watching paint dry or grass grow? Then do I have the game for you. Airport Simulator is a game where almost nothing happens in its entirety and I really mean that. This game is so slow that you can grow a beard that is 2 feet long before you complete the first challenge. I mean what else is there to say its so BORING! I have done household chores that are more fun than this game FOR REAL! Another thing is that they are charging $10 for this abomination of what they call a game. Honestly your better off just giving that money to a homeless person because they will be able to find more enjoyment with it. Then there is the sound, dear ♥♥♥♥ing god what were the programers thinking. When you start up the game it sounds like a smoke detecor went off in your house it just drives me crazy. I honestly can't think of anything positive to say about this game and most games that I end up getting that are bad I have at least one positive to them, but not this one. So why did I buy this then? Well have you ever looked for the worst possible game to play just becasue it is bad? I thought that I would get this game because it is literly the worst rated game on steam, its true just how many games are there on steam that have a overwhelmingly negative overall user score almost none. So I bought it expecting that it would be a good laugh, but enjoyable for being so bad like the Tommy Wiseau's The Room is, instead I was crying and wishing that I had never spent my money on this garbage. I bought this before the steam refund ever existed so I was basically stuck with this thing. Overall don't buy this garbage of a game even if it is on sale you will just waste your money and if you think that it would be funny to send to a friend as a gag gift you would be a terrible person because it will basically give them cancer. There are SO many better games that you can get for $10 and even less. Don't infect your hard drive with this disease and I honestly hope that this trend in all these fake simulator games will just die and fade away because they fill up steam promising fantastic experiance, but instead they just ♥♥♥♥ your wallet and waste your time.

Airport simulator is not to bad. If you can have patience and a little creativity then you will have your moneys worth. Dont expect this to be a AAA game, its far from it. But not all AAA games are great. I think this one has a little touch in my heart when playing that keeps my imagination going at times. 6/10 Play it if you dont mind spending an hour or two just couriering around an airport.

Trust me, my friend bought me this game as a dare..... He said "If you can play 4 hours of this, i'll buy you besiege." The game was so boring as there is no fast forward button.... you legit have to wait for the tasks to be done for example. You have to drive the fuel truck to the parked plane, wait half an hour (real time) for the plane to finish refueling then drive to the other side (at a max of 10 kmph (5ish mph) to put the truck away, then you have to get another truck with a slower speed and take that to the plane, wait another half hour.... ♥♥♥♥ this game seriously... Worth it for the bet, not worth it for fun. Seriously. 10/10 would rather watch paint dry for 4 hours.

What does that mean? It's quite simple: Yet Another Crappy German Simulator.

I don't know what it is with German developers and their obsession with simulation games, but I understand even less why they think releasing buggy pieces of utter crap like this is fine. Maybe it's because Valve doesn't really care and lets them get away with it.

Airport Simulator 2014 is just plain awful. Everything is so slow, you'd think it's Dear Esther on wheels. The graphics look like they're from the early 2000's, and pop in so slowly after loading a saved game that it takes a minute to show everything... *IF* you end up getting everything shown, that is. During my playtime, half of the assets suddenly disappeared, and reloading a previous save file or restarting the game didn't fix it. All the terminals were gone, leaving only the gates to hang in mid-air. The river in the background dried up mysteriously as well for some reason. Actually, this is helping you because the buildings no longer hide the arrows which tell you where your snails on wheels are supposed to crawl to.

Then there are the bugs. For no apparent reasons, the tunnels suddenly begin to move on their own, rolling back and forth as if they were possessed by ghosts. While it is amusing to watch them slowly clip through the gates, it becomes rather aggravating when you're supposed to deploy them because that's no longer possible then. This, however, is one of the few things which gets fixed with a reload... sometimes, that is.

Everything happens in real-time. When the game tells you that a plane needs to be repaired for 20 minutes, it will indeed take 20 minutes of real time to be done, and it's the same with every task. Thus on average, a plane will take up about 1 hour of your time to be fully handled.

Eventually, you have earned enough money to hire so-called helpers. These move even slower, though, but at least you don't have to babysit them constantly as the pathfinding works surprisingly well. Each time a plane takes off again, you receive a nice bonus which lets you hire more helpers until everything is automated.

And that's the major problem of the game. By the time you have upgraded 4 gates, you won't have anything to do anymore because there's nothing left apart from driving around in a van which has no other function. This would be alright if you were able to advance time, but nope, there's no such option. You are now doomed to sit there and twiddle your thumbs while waiting for the money to roll in.

If you have masochistic tendencies, you might enjoy this game. Everybody else shouldn't bother getting this.

Seriously, when a Simulator is developed by a "GmbH" (German for "Gesellschaft mit beschränkter Haftung", which means "company with limited liability"), stay away from it. I have yet to see a good one.

Airport Simulator might be the most tedious and boring game ever released. Heres what you do in this game:
1. Select gate for plane to taxi to.
2. Extend tunnel.
If its a passenger plane:
1. Drive stairs to gate.
2. Drive bus to gate.
3. Drive luggage wagon to gate.
4. Drive interior cleaning to gate.
5. Drive exterior cleaning to gate.
If its a cargo plane:
1. Drive cargo wagon to gate.
2. Drive exterior cleaning to gate.

Wait 5-10 minutes

1. Drive everything back to the garage.

Thats literallyy it. Theres no management, there is no way to lose you just get money for every task you do. You start with 8 gates even though youre probably never going to use more than half of them at a time. You can hire "helpers" that drive the vehicles for you. The game is over once everything got an "helper". The graphics are bad but you cant really expect good graphics from a 15€ game.

While playing it I got the feeling that devs were never even close to an airport. On what airport do they use tunnels and stairs/buses on the same plane? On what airport does the luggage go to end of the airport and the passangers to the other?

The game is also riddled with bugs. When you save the game all textures and models unload and all you see is the skybox for about 3 minutes. The Tunnels jiggle all the time and get stuck inside the terminal. When i tried to taxi a plane back to the runway the game just crashed.

Not only is this game awful it is also falsly advertised: It clearly says in the description that there are "Many management and business options for the expansion of terminals and extension of runways" which there are none. Not a single one. It also says its available in german, french and italian which isnt the case either. Steam finally has to hire someone that plays every game for at least an hour before it is made available on the store.

TL;DR Do not under any circumstances buy this game, dont even accept it as a gift.

I might continue playing this when I am bored but other then that not really, driving the cars and such is slow, the tutorial didn't really help out at all, took me a while to figure out what to do. Read the forums do a bit of research before buying games. They warned me about not getting this game but I thought about giving it a try and it didn't turn out to well.
