Summary: Like any Microsoft product, the newer versions of Systems & Games just makes things more complicaded and worse. Microsoft Flight Simulator Games are great " From 2002, to MFS 2004 "A century of Flight". I love to take the Anfibian Plane and land in a local lake around here Rock Creek Lake "An extinct Volcano surrounded by mountains". They all have tons of local and World Wide airports. But MFS X-Deluxe falls short for My favorite flights.
Summary: I am a student pilot and am looking for a simulator that will help me in my classes. FSX is NOT that type of simulator. It is a game. Yes, it is fun but I think there is little you can take into a Cessna 172 and use to be a better pilot. One example of this is the missions section. You start a mission and the instructer does a little brief, but then he basically leaves you on your own, especially when practicing landing.
Summary: I have been a Flight Simulator fan since the mid 1980's when Bruce Artwick first developed the program for the Commodore and Atari computers (I've bought every upgrade since then). MicroSoft took over the development and marketing of this massive and complicated program in the 1990's and of course as the Commodore and Atari machines faded into the distant past, Flight Simulator went onto the PC platform.
Summary: This is the 3rd Flight Simulator I have owned. First one I bought in the 80s when it was fairly new. The second one I bought was Flight Simulator 2000. I bought that after trying it at Oshkosh Airshow 1999. That game runs great on my Pentium 4 3.2gigahertz Hyper threading, 1.5 gig of memory, 128 meg ATI video card. This game, which I was excited to get as I usually upgrade every 5 years or so, was a source hog!
Summary: This game is hard to play because I'm just interested in driving the airplane and I don't know how to drive it exactly. I will figure out how to play later. But because this game was released several years ago, the quality of graph is not good enough. And some scenery of airports are different from now, but Microsoft didn't update the data.
Summary: All though this is a great product be very wary as activation via Microsoft can be a bad experience and you could be left with a product you cant use.Check first on the web about all the problems people have run into and for solutions as you will not get very far with Microsoft Tech Support. Happy Flying, Norma Hulme.

Excerpt: Non si può dire che questo sia un gioco innovativo rispetto alla sua precedente versione. Non c'è stato un significativo miglioramento: 1- La quantità di modelli di aerei è diminuita, sebbene si sia completamente rinnovata (nel FS2004 mancavano gli ...
