Summary: Flight Simulator X is the culmination of decades of programming and product evolution. As someone who used FS briefly back in the 1980's on a Commodore 64, it was always something I wanted to learn but never had the time required.
Summary: I love this game! My uncle bought it for me when I was 8, and I have been flying for 10 years! Real world and on the sim. The only bad review I have to say about this game is if you are planning on downloading some add-ons or other stuff to expand the game, you need a powerful machine.
Summary: I used to own a Microsoft Flight Simulator a few years ago. This is is a later version. I enjoyed the game then and I enjoy it even more now. This game is so realistic. I believe it is more fun than actually flying a plane. You can make mistakes and crash and get up and walk away.
Summary: I will start with this statement: You must install Service Pack 1, and if your system has 2GB of RAM and a dual-core processor, Service Pack 2. If you don't install either of those, your FSX experience will be miserable. Now, on to the review.
Summary: Let me get something of my chest first. I have noticed a lot of bad feedback on reviewers who give higher ratings to products that are developed by Microsoft. So just to make it clear - I am not reviewing Microsoft, I'm reviewing the simulator. So.. how fun is this game?
MS Flight Sim X has fewer sceneries than MS FS 2004

Summary: I upgraded from MS FS2004 to the new MS FS X Deluxe. To my surprise, it has fewere planes and fewer sceneries than FS2004. For example, you fly over Las Vegas and there is only the Mirage hotel, while in 2004 you could see many more hotels and landmarks. There are also fewer planes.

Summary: I bought this for my husband for Valentine's Day, and it's a great program. Not quite a game (it's a real time flight simulator, so it can get rather boring), but a great tool for keeping flight skills and lingo up.
