Summary: It does not work. When put in hard drive the drive runs at a high speed and becomes very hot. I tried both drives. It starts to list all the files on the discs. That is not the normal startup mode for FltSim X. Microsoft no longer supports the product. I would like return this order.
Summary: I have had microsoft flight sim 2002, 2004 and X. Flight Simulator X is by far the worst! If you are used to getting add on airports and aircraft for your flight simulator game you will be totally disappointed. Almost every add on has issues with FSX.
Summary: Although there are many features and advanced graphics in this simulator, you won't be able to see or use them with present day technology, if ever! MS goofed in their "future tech" considerations and did not provide dual core technology or SLI and banked on ever higher speed single core cpus - this...
Summary: When I saw the hype regarding the game, I was interested in buying it as I used version 2004. For those not familiar with Flight Simulator, it is not a game but a simulator as the name implies - and a very good one.
Summary: My Fun rating of 5 is based upon my use of FS 2004 and what FSX is SUPPOSED to do. Like so many users of earlier versions, I was disappointed and dismayed that this program is all but unusable on my Pentium 4, 2.6 Ghz with 512 Mb of RAM, which exceeds the minimum specified by Microsoft.
Summary: Half of designing a game is making it available for at least half of the users out there. This game fails because it is simply too demanding on the system. It makes me wonder how Microsoft even tested it.
Summary: To start with my system specs: D830, 3Gb DDR2-800, 7950GT 512MB OC, 2xSATA2 NCQ in RAID0 I was pretty confident I would be able to run the game - with the default scenery - at reasonable FSP's. I was wrong as wrong can be. With the sliders in medium range, I was enjoying FS-Slideshow Deluxe !
Summary: This game is made for computers available sometime next century. It takes a month of Sundays to load (over 5 minutes), chokes when any air traffic is in visual range and must be run with the almost all of the features defeated, features that Micro$oft alleges make this game worthwhile.
Summary: I should preface this review with a statement: I've been a fan of the flight sim franchise since I first played Bruce Artwicks' version on Apple II. And no other software title has inspired me to spend as much money over the years to upgrade my pc hardware as much as Flight Simulator.
Excellent release but major disapointment at the same time

Summary: If you don't have Intel Core 2 Duo processor with a very decent graphic card in your machine, don't even bother to buy it. On my AMD Athlon 3800, 2Gb memory and Nvidia 5800 512Mb runs at about 14 - 18 frames per second with scenery, dynamic scenery and 2D panel set to minimum.
