Airport Mania 2: Wild Trips
Planes with personality!
I have played and enjoyed both this and its predecessor for many many years. This has always been one of my 'go-to' games whenever I just want a bit of stress-free game-play (no puzzles to solve, no 'customers' to feed), I have played this on various formats over the years from PC's to tablets, with the current Presidents sale offer (God Bless America (and Bigfish(is that blasphemous?)), then I was wondering whether to purchase either this or the first version. I have decided to purchase this version as both are very similar but this being the second has major improvements over the first outing.
The first improvement is the graphics which are more 'rounded' and less blockier then the first game. This version is also in wide-screen by default and the mouse response is a lot better, meaning that you can control the planes flight with more accuracy. Don't get me wrong I really enjoyed the first game (indeed I have it on my ipod and tablet (not purchased two just one and it 'up-scales' itself :)), but for the PC I think this version lends itself better to the 'bigger screen'.
If you want a bit of light-hearted, stress-free, then I would heartedly recommend this game, as the graphics are quirky, 'planes with personality' and whilst there is not much of a storyline (but then this is a TM and how many TM have a really gripping storyline), the game is one that you can play over and over, if only to try and perfect a 'supreme score' on all levels.
I would heartedly recommend this game to young and old alike and whilst it may have been out a while the graphics are still solid and hold up well even in today's market.

This is one of the favorite games of me and my sons (8,4), It is a time management game with some funny mini games integrated. I like the cute design very much and also the strategic aspect of the game. There is also an iPad version available.

Fun and cute!
I love the sound the planes make when they are waiting to load, unload or when they are gassing up...you can hear when they're happy or not...that's the cute part...the fun part is that it is not a frustrating time management game but it is not overly easy...give it a try, you'll most likely want to purchase it immediately!

Cute game! Hard to put down!
Every once in awhile I come across a game that I find hard to put down, sad when it comes to an end and excited to play all over again. The different games and interactivity within the different levels are incredibly fun to play. The background music and the sounds that the airplanes make are adorable. The thought of a game of landing and fixing airplanes doesn't seem too exciting to me, but this game with all of the other challenges it throws in, as well as all of the different locations of the airports (including on the moon) makes it really fun and interesting to play. The graphics are good. I hadn't played the first one, but now will have to. Can't wait!

A fun classic
This is one of the games from BFG that I return to again and again - I've owned it since the publication and played it through several times. The time management game has just the right amount of challenge (easy enough to pass, but needs a bit work to get all the stars from all the levels), offers you a choice of how to develop your airport (which upgrades to buy first and which to leave for last or just not buy at all), the graphics are cute but not too bling, and I love the sounds (beautiful, not noisy, but informative). Also, there are very many levels, so many hours of play. Why are there so few new games of the same quality?
