It Will Take You to a Spectacular New World of Amazingly Detailed Aircraft

By Christine Diaz

On Friday, May 23, 2014

Flight Simulator X is an amazing game. It is so realistic it is actually used by some pilots. It is mostly fun to play compared to some simulators that you can get. Flight Simulator X is a highly reliable flight simulator that has countless features. The biggest upgrade of this game I must say is the visual aspect. Flight Simulator X boasts 10 times the graphics compared to Flight Simulator in 2004. The graphics of the planes in Flight Simulator X is more solid than the previous Flight Simulator even if you are using a low end computer. The game has an extensive variety of places you can go to. It has a total of 24,000 airports all in all.

By configuring difficulty settings, you can tell whether it is a simulation or game as the practical settings options requires sound knowledge of the real world operational aircraft. Even on the simplest difficulty settings still, basic information is required to make a successfully takeoff, descending, ascending, cruise, climb and landing.

Pros

  • Very realistic and excellent graphics
  • Good program to learn how to fly an aircraft

Cons

  • It needs big space on your hard disc

Monumental Flight Simulation Game to Tickle Your Fancy for Flying

By Maria Bernabe

On Friday, May 23, 2014

Compared to flight simulation games available today, the Flight Simulator X is not that much of a looker. Don’t get disgruntled. This flight sim is monumental in its own right. During its release back in 2006, Microsoft marketed the game as the most significant technological milestone in its series. If you have a fancy for flying, this is the best game to try out your skills. I was keen to do so, myself.

What made the version so popular was its ability to render images in high detail, which at that time, was an almost non-existent technology. When connected to the Internet, the game renders more efficiently in detail as weather forecast is monitored and fed into the game. Based on these conditions, the environment of the game changes and adapts accordingly. Not only that, roads, flora, and basically everything in the surrounding area are rendered in high detail.

How the game renders images is not its most significant improvement that I discovered. It can now process direct content into the flight sim with 50 missions available. There is also a required tutorial that a gamer must undergo to familiarize them in the cockpit, especially how to react in a blown-engine situations.

With its multiplayer features, I was able to play along with a friend. Air traffic chat is now more enjoyable! It may be old, but the Flight Simulator X is still one of the best flight sim games anyone will get to play.

Pros

  • Features content directed flight simulation
  • Enables flight simulation in multiplayer mode

Cons

  • Multiplayer mode doesn’t include content-directed simulation
