Boring game play; crummy graphics; and horrible user interfacing makes Airport Tycoon 3 one of the worst games ever.

Look at any major airport around the world and you'll see dozens of runways; bustling terminals; busy hangars; hundreds of airplanes taxing to and fro. Walk through the terminal and you'll find thousands of people, dozens of shops and several hundred check-in counters.
Look at Airport Tycoon 3 and you'll see a runway or two since that is all fit on the maps; terminals with a few people wondering around aimlessly; no hangars instead try a few parking spaces (Very few planes park when they get to a major airport, they go to the gate, they unload, they refuel, they reload and are gone.); no gates on even the largest of terminals; a few shops and a few planes occasionally (and I had three runways fully scheduled)
And aesthetics aren't even Airport Tycoon's most annoying aspects. Try adding an irritating interface; a cumbersome construction system; and empty terminals with absolutely no indication where the VIP lounge can go or where the check-in area is, or even where the f**k the entrance is. Speaking of poor game design I forgot to mention that the largest terminals take up almost half the largest map size and that once you build them you cant destroy them.
I would not recommend even trying this game for even the most obsessed airport aficionado. Even then you will still find this game insulting.
