If you love simulations and airplanes, then Aerobiz is a must. If not, you should at least give it a chance. This game really makes you think, which is good for your brain...

Nachdem ich mich durch die 68seitige Anleitung gekaut hatte, war ich nur wenig schlauer als vorher. In Aerobiz steckt zu viel drin, um aufs erste Mal alles zu behalten. Am besten, man probiert's einfach aus. Aerobiz ist eigentlich ein typisches “Maus“-Spiel: Den Auswahlpfeil per Joypad zu manövrieren ist nicht gerade die Erfüllung. Grafisch hätten sich die Entwickler etwas mehr ins Zeug legen können, für ein nüchternes Strategiespiel ist die Grafik jedoch ausreichend. Die einzigen Animationen sind ein rotierender Globus und der Flug einer Maschine zu einem neu erschlossenen Flughafen. Ich persönlich finde immer mehr Gefallen an solchen Strategiespielen. Auch das Flugliniengerangel macht mir viel Spaß und wird mich sicher noch länger beschäftigen. Aerobiz zählt klar zu den Oberklassemodulen. Konsolenstrategen sollten an diesem U.S.-lmport nicht ohne einen Blick (oder ein längeres Anspielen) vorbeigehen.
Au final, Aerobiz est un jeu de gestion plutôt sympathique, et se déroule dans un univers que l’on n’a pas vraiment l’habitude de fréquenter dans le monde du jeu vidéo, mais sa relative complexité et son apparente austérité (du moins au premier contact) peuvent rebuter nombre de joueurs. Les passionnés de Sim City ou autres jeux similaires qui ont retourné leur jeu fétiche dans tous les sens devraient tout de même y trouver largement leur compte, à tel point qu’Aerobiz peut se révéler tout aussi addictif pour qui aime le genre.
Even though it is a rather dry business simulation, the game certainly has its charm. It certainly isn’t as complex as its sequel Aerobiz Supersonic, but some people might actually prefer that. By comparison it’s relatively simple, yet still deep enough to provide challenge and a certain amount of strategic foresight. The sounds and graphics, while not remarkable, are certainly appealing enough to last for prolonged sessions. And since it definitely is one of the more forgiving games out of the KOEI catalog, it’s a good game to ease into if you’re not too familiar with the genre. So give it a spin, it’ll be a fun trip (damn, there was another one…)
SNESAll Game Guide
Aerobiz puts armchair executives in control of their very own airline company. As president and CEO, players will decide what routes to open, what fares to set, what planes to buy, and more. Players will also be in charge of negotiating holding slots, setting a budget, carrying out marketing campaigns, buying stock, and following industry and city data. To achieve a goal of connecting 22 cities of the world, you send managers to negotiate while contending with strikes, airplane trouble, and even world events, such as war, tourist booms, labor strikes, accidents, and bad weather. If you find yourself struggling with the decision making process, you can always ask your panel of advisors for help.

Aerobiz looks good, with little pictures appearing when something happens - a little plane takes off and lands in Mode 7 every time you open a new route, that sort of thing. In fact the game has Super Nintendo written all over it (three times on the box, and twice on the cartridge, if you count). But there is a problem: there just isn't enough to do. The trouble I had was that I spent my first few goes opening as many routes as possible As a result I took more money and more passengers than my competitors, and yet I made considerably less profit. It transpires that it's better to limit your routes - concentrate on flights in and out of just one country, say. So if you play the game properly, you'll spend most of your time nurturing your existing routes rather than making any major changes to your enterprise. Sure, this is how real businesses are run, but it's all a bit boring really, isnt it?

Unterm Strich ist Aerobiz mehr als solide, die Computergegner sind herausfordernd schwer, jedoch fehlt das gewisse, prickelnde Etwas, um richtig begeistern zu können. Da Managerspiele auf dem SNES jedoch selten sind, sollten Fans ruhig mal probefliegen.
