Comparison of the two games
The name Airport City does not do the myriad of features and activities justice. The inclusion of the ability to turn your airport into a space center puts it ahead of the City Island Airport 2. The space program can be as simple or intricate as you like. The tutorial is easy to use and available with the tap of a button. A separate feature allows the city to be built with famous tourist attractions from around the world including the Louvre or Egyptian Sphinx. The amount of area that can be used to expand your city can quickly turn into a mega-metropolis. Earn loads of rewards from objects you find during your world travel.
While there is not a feature to have famous landmarks other than the Statue of Liberty, you can create your own. There is a cool feature that lets you earn profits from airline flights. As your score grows, unlock new airplanes, runways, and other interesting items to fill the city with more activity. You can build up the beaches with tourist stops. They can include buildings in the water with ferries to take passengers back to the mainland where high rise hotels are waiting. Pick the specific type of trees and flowers to dart the landscape of your paradise.
Airport City is the winner of this competition with its space program and famous landmarks from around the world. The possibility to build a larger cityscape adds more fuel to the fire. City Island: Airport 2 does its best with features including tracking fares for profits, but cannot match its counterpart. Fans of the City Island series will enjoy this latest upgrade, but when they get a glimpse of what Airport City has to offer, they may make the switch.
