I am a veteran of London Control and Tower!2011/Tower3DPro/Tracon!.
I actually found ATCPro on the Tower3DPro forum and decided to give it a go.
My impression so far is favorable. Good production values, comprehensive simulation, expansive vocabulary, lots to do.

My major gripe is with the SR. In Tower3D I experience close to 100% accuracy no matter how I speak. Their engine (Microsoft?) copes well with my middle eastern accent and soft, leisurely style of speaking.
In ATCPro I can get decent results when I speak rapidly and focus on enunciation. As soon as I slack off though, SR goes crazy.
I'm not sure if the engine can be tweaked to be more forgiving. What I think could help is if the engine would ignore me when it wasn't sure it got me right. Right now, I can be lining up an A/C ready to land, tell it 'xxx cleared visual approach runway 08' and the sim happily tells me 'proceed direct YYY' and veer off course. Crap. If only it ignored my last utterance...

If you will send me some audio clips of your commands, I will listen to them and try to determine why you are having as much SR difficulty as you describe.  I suggest you use Audacity, which is a free audio capture utility.  Be sure to set the sample rate to 8K.
