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

This is a flying computer game developed by Microsoft .It is rumored that this game can actually improve flying skills but only when you are using it to sharpen skills under the guidance of a flight school, Ground school or flight instructor. The skills include climbing and descending, coordinates turns, navigation, stalls and landing. Nerveless it is the tenth edition among the flight simulator games which comes with GPS, airways, navigation assisting materials, eighteen planes, and Twenty four thousand airports in twenty eight cities for a standard edition. There are more aircrafts and more cities on the deluxe version. There is the Gold edition which is among the three editions of the game which is simply a combination of the acceleration expansion and deluxe version into one.

It has great features and the graphics are amazing, for instance there are call signs to be used with the aircrafts. There is a learning center where lessons are taken up and ratings are given whether it is private pilot, airline transport pilot or commercial pilot. Missions and rewards is a great concept where you are rewarded after completing missions. It is generally a good game with good planes like the Boeing 747-400 and a multi -player mode where you can play with other players. Though it is not an easy task to fly the planes in the game especially landing is the toughest part.

Pros

  • It is rumored that this game can actually improve flying skills.
  • It has great features and the graphics are amazing.

Cons

  • Consumes a lot of RAM,the game is large.
