Wow, what a game. After my inital 20 minute install and several cups of coffee while i waited I was not dissappointed with the end result. I have a fairly powerfull machine (A pentium dual core 2.9 ghz processor with 1gb ram and 512mb geforce graphics) and the graphics a gameplay do not fail to dissappoint. In saying this the level of detail is still not turned onto maximum so i have reduced airtraffic and some anti-alias settings turned off. Even so the end result is good.
I have always been a fan of flight sims but the control systems are someties tiresome, not in this case, they are easy to grasp and the maual explains all well, with some good intoduction training lessons for the flight sim beginner. The deluxe edition is a must as it has additional aircraft and the cities are more detaild, although this is only noticable if you are running a powerfull machine.
The structured missions (65 of them) are a good basis to start from and are always fun for a quick flight. They range from flying though gates in your helicopter, to landing a jumbo in the carribean, to the famouse redbull airrace. There are two option for the cockpit, a flat 2d view with most buttons on display or a 3d display where you must look around for you switch gear.
I bought this game sometime ago now and am still addicted to it, im glad to see it has come down in price as i paid nearly £60 for it when it can be bought for nearly half that price now.
Definately a must wheather you are a beginner or veterian pilot. Top marks microsoft.
