Its quick to learn, and if you have at least a very basic interest in aviation, then it quickly becomes addictive.
The realism could have done with a bit more thinking, If you were really controlling these aircraft then I think you could run them much closer together. The screen needs to be much bigger. But Hey, this game is nearly 20 years old...... so with that in mind......... there is nothing i don't like about this game
The Bottom Line
You have to think fast, plan ahead, I think of it as Airplane Chess, I would love to find a modern version of this game for the PC.

Surprisingly simple to learn but hard to master. Like tetris and pacman.
This game is one of the first Real Time Strategy games ever. Maybe even the first. And it's a simulation as well.
First truely commercial game to use computer generated voices.
The Bottom Line
If you're interested in Air Traffic Control, or in simple but addictive games that get complicated pretty fast then this is for you.
