Requires the base game in order to play.

A decade after the best-selling Airline Tycoon comes the long awaited sequel to the legendary tongue-in-cheek economic simulation that puts players in the role of CEO of an international airline! Airline Tycoon 2 will challenge players to run a modern airline, design unique airplanes and grow a run-down carrier into a globally recognized company that passengers practically beg to fly. Airports worldwide are waiting to be explored, but beware– your rivals never rest! Crafty opponents are also working to dominate the skies… and they won’t let anything stand in the way of their goals!

  • Explore real world airports, from Moscow to Venezuela, with realistic travel conditions and passenger volumes
  • Build your ideal fleet of planes – use the in-game editor to craft inexpensive mass-transportation "Greyhounds in the sky" or unique, luxury jets that spoil the elite
  • Jump into the action as one of four playable avatars with unique strenght and weaknesses
  • Explore your home airport in full 3D, while bossing your employees around and expanding your blossoming airline; you might even meet VIPs at the airport lounge
  • Test your management mettle in a challenging business environment as you schedule flight plans, coordinate arrivals and departures and balance income and expenses – all to grow profit and enhance your airline’s global reputation
  • Random events bring variety to the game -- The Pope wants a special flight? Civil war in Russia? Volcanic ash clouds above Europe? If you act quickly, you can profit from these events!
  • Sabotage – annoy and slow down your opponents with devious actions. But beware; your adversaries may just pay you back in kind!

Really Bad

This isn't the game you are looking for

If you are like me, you are interested in this game because of the old Airline Tycoon on SNES back in the 90s. That game was a great business Sim and one of the first I played.

Unfortunately, Airline Tycoon 2 is nothing like the original.

First, you cannot create a character or a company of your own. You have the choice between a handful of pre-made characters and companies. It may not sound that bad, but each of these characters are over-the-top caricatures. One is a "Paris Hilton" look-alike that likes fashion and helps your relationship with celebrities, another is an ex-military person who dresses in camo and brings a different advantage to your company. The problem with that is that these characters are too exaggerated to believe and there's no way I could accept the fact that they were airline managers.

Even their office (that you spend the most time in) is ridiculous. One office is all pink - and I mean ALL pink. The desks, the door, the walls, everything is pink like the ugly room of a 5 year old who's parents should be arrested for mental abuse. Same idea with the ex-military character - his office is a bunker.

The graphics are cartoony and over the top as well, with small bodies and large heads.

The actual business management is not so bad, so if you can handle the ridiculous graphics and plot and the bulky UI, you may actually enjoy that part.

But the real killer for me was that on the contrary to the original, it does not use real-life makers and plane models. All planes you can buy are made-up planes and models that are more or less subtedly imitate the real-life ones.

I was looking for a good business management game, but I got a psychedelic kid's game. Not sure what the design team was thinking - since when are 5 year old kids playing tycoon games?
