Summary: The minimum requirements on the back of the game barely make anything enjoyable. You need a very high performance computer to get just a normal setting out of this game. I'm going back to Flight Simulator 2004 just because I can get better scenery and performance than this one.
Summary: I've been a long time user of FlightSim. I remember there have been other releases that have stressed the hardware generally available in the gaming community over the years, but this one takes the cake.
Summary: What the heck, you might ask: The game was recently released, I get only 10 fps with everything maxed out and you call it obsolete? That is my point exactly. You need to take a look under the hood to understand why you get such poor mileage.
Summary: I got this for Christmas and have had to reinstall it four times since then. This is my first time using a flight simulator and I'm amazed at the realism that the game offers. However, it's darned disappointing to build up hours, landings, mission awards, etc.
Summary: I am currently doing my private pilot training, and I just upgraded from Flight Simulator 2004 to Flight Simulator X. My first impressions: 1. Stalls and slow flight are much more realistic in this version of Flight Simulator than in previous verions. Kudos! 2.
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.
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.
