I really wanted to like this game, I really love business sim games, But Kalypso shoud stick to Tropico and thats it (They even manged to make V worse than IV)! They already killed Port Royale 3 and made my look like a ♥♥♥♥♥♥ for recommending it to all my friends based on how great PR2 was, but I digress. This game is so bad, you actually have to purchase in game the guide for all the hotkeys to actually fully utilize the most basic functions like buying used planes. There really is no "Win" or even goals other than "fly here with this big of a plane".
I actually was inspired to learn to code simply so I could fix this game, ditch the "run around the airport" stupidness and focus on taking market share by smartly outfitting planes and organizing routes. There is so much potential that is completely wasted! The mechanics are there but die on the vine as the way in which flights are scheduled and staff is hired seems like the actual business of running the airline was an afterthought to graphics and kitchiness.
If you want to play a game like this, get RailRoad Tycoon or Open TTD. RT2 & RT3 are very cheap and TTD is free at openttd.org
