For many of us being a pilot has always been a childhood dream that with time proves to be a mere fiction. But Microsoft developers sought to give anyone the real thrill of operating a plane with a lot of choices of planes and having incorporated more that 24000 airports to land in makes the game a real thrill to play. The game has been created with 3D graphics and thus the game has very dynamic and active live maps that are updated to give a real time feel/ The game has a very interactive feature the multiple player mode that allows more than one player on the same game making the game very social. The simulator allows one to operate as a air traffic controller and one is able to even communicate with other pilots. The developer also created different levels that one advances as he or she progresses with the game. This game does not have an age limit it is relevant to all ages.

Pros

  • The game is a free to download game
  • The game has a multiplayer platform

Cons

  • The game can be very addictive

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

Almost Real Simulator Game for Flying Enthusiasts and Professional Pilots

By Ivy Paloma

On Friday, May 23, 2014

ACES, the award winning game developer, introduces Flight Simulator X. The genre leading installment includes the usual realism that never fails to awe professional pilots. In fact, it serves as the graphical benchmark for Windows Vista-based games. For the first time, it delivers structured gameplay consisting of more than 55 missions that players can choose from. This game will test the skills of its players on all levels.

Flight Simulator is a very impressive PC game. Despite its bland graphics and occasional complexity, it provides total freedom to its players who love to fly or learn how to fly an aircraft. Although the old simulator has been discontinued, the new Microsoft Flight offers a more affecting product. It allows users somehow to realize the dream of flying even just in the game.

Although the new version is available, it still maintained most of its controls. Old-time users can familiarize themselves only to the new interface. On the other hand, beginners will find the hints very helpful.

Pros

  • Have many missions to keep the game interesting
  • Offers helpful hints for players to guide them

Cons

  • Requires powerful video and graphic cards
