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.
