Finally, it's over! This game takes FOREVER. And what do I get to show for my effort? A fucking sequel that I have to play next.
Aerobiz is a simulation game based on managing an airline. That may be the most boring idea I have ever heard for a game. And it is. This game requires an IV drip of caffeine just to finish it. Do you remember that old tv show, Wings? And the only reason you watched that show was for Lowell. This game is like watching Wings, without Lowell. In fact, it's like watching all 8 seasons of Wings without Lowell, because this game drags on for what seems like 8 fucking years. You will be at a point of complete domination, and this game will still require you to have a certain amount of passengers per quarter before it's over. Even if all of your competitors are bankrupt and you are literally playing the game against yourself, the game will continue. The rest of this review is going to be short and to the point because I have to get started on the god damn sequel.
|Where is Lowell? Why has he forsaken me?|
Controls. You pick options with the D-Pad and push a single button throughout the game. Fuck the other 7 buttons.
Audio. Good music. No sound effects. Game lasts so long that even the wide assortment of background music becomes repetitive.
Visuals. Pure shit. You're either looking at a bland map, or an ugly globe. Every time you make a new route, you get treated to watching a horrible plane animation fly over poorly textures backgrounds.
Gameplay. Do you like simulation games? Do you like games about managing businesses? Do you hate having fun? If so, this game was meant for you! For everyone else, this game has very little to offer. Even if you like simulation type games, you will probably hate Aerobiz. I have played good sim games before, and this shit isn't even close.
|This is a completely accurate portrayal of this game.|
|Even the fucking ending goes on for way too long. Seriously, there's about 15 minutes worth of stupid airplane clips and random dialog in this ending. JUST FUCKING END. FUCK.|
