I had this game a year ago...I got rid of it right away. I thought it sucked.Whatever you do, don't get the head set.It doesn't work. As for directing planes to land, it's fun for the first 20 minutes. The game gets really boring after a while.-Brett

I have this game and I can say one thing for sure. It is the most realistic ATC simulation on the market. That's why it might seem boring for some people because it is definately not a game, it's simulation all the way. That said, I never was able to get the voice recognition to work, and typing all the comands is sometimes tough when you're handling lots of planes.
So if you want the most realistic ATC simulation available, buy it. If you want a game, get something else.
Oh one more thing... my version didn't run under XP, there might be an update for that now but i haven't checked in a long time.

Got it the day it was released, and bugs still aren't fixed. Paid $65 for the pre-order. After having to PAY for a major update, some things that were promised in the release still aren't there. Things such as weather, etc. Very good concept, I think it is a very real simulation, but I've just been frustrated with having an unfinished product for several years now. It's $20 or so at the moment, it'd probably be worth a look.
