USER REVIEWS

Fly high and without fear thanks to Flight Simulator X

By Chris Larrage

On Tuesday, April 15, 2014

The most complete airplane simulator at the moment for PC features a real way for controlling and new missions and features. Graphics on this simulator are almost real, thanks to its high resolution. In general terms, Flight Simulator X has made it to the top of this genre due to the complete content it includes and the variety it grants. It is even used to practice for those students that are trying to become professional pilots, so you can guess the level of detail it grants.

In order to create an even bigger game, Microsoft released several downloadable content packs for increasing the number of planes and maps that were included on the first place. This game does not aim to those players that want immediate action since the game flow is really paused and even slow in some moments. This is because you need to take the game with other mentality, trying to make each map mission in the most perfect possible way. The bad point is that you need a powerful computer with high specs to run it, but if your system meets these requirements you can run this game without any problem. Get into the flight that will take you to anywhere.

Pros

  • Incredible graphic level of detail
  • Several planes and missions available

Cons

  • It requires a really powerful system

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
