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.

This game is absolutely terrible. There's not a lot to do besides waiting and the graphics looks like they were made 10 years ago.
Can NOT recommend - At all!

If you like driving around, waiting for 30 mins to do the next thing, with graphics from 5 years ago. Then yes, this game is for you. Besides that, it is NOT AN AIRPORT SIMULATOR. It is a DRIVING SIMULATOR.

The game lies, its not an airport management game, rather a waiting game to complete the task game. At least until you set the ground crew to be ai controled. then is just stare blankly at the screen

YOU GET TO DRIVE A STAIR CAR!!

But that's really the only good thing... Everything else is pretty boring, you drive a vehicle to the plane, it does it's thing, you drive it back to park.

But that stair car, wow. It made me feel like I left the game and was in an episode of Arrested Development.

THIS GAME IS... surprisingly good
I played alot of the simulators also made by this company and, I must say, this is the best one that I have tried so far.
I am still fairly early in the game, so I have to do a lot of tasks manually, as opposed to letting employees do all the work, but the manual tasks aren't nearly as infuriating as in the other simulator games. The mechanics are good and, while some vehicles are difficult to get used to, the game really isn't too hard.

Pro Tip: save up to get two upgrades at a time so you don't have a really slow level 1 worker doing a drive that should take 2 minutes in 9 minutes. Also, try to get upgrades for the taxi ASAP as it is the hardest to control out of all of the vehicles.

Pro Tip 2: Ovewhelmed by all the work you have to do? Simply drive a vehicle that is required by 2 or more airplanes to the respective spots on the plane (so that they start doing work on them) then drive the vehicle away. The game will say that the work will occur for a period of time, but the timer will never run down. NOTE: does not apply to taxing or putting vehicles back in garage.

P.S. Ignore the haters, this game is ok and pretty tense; Especially if you (accidentaly) wait for too long.

This is quite a boring game. I know what to do, others don't. This is more of a drive and wait and drive and wait kind of game.
