Summary: My grandson loves this game. He thinks he might want to learn to fly just for fun when he grows up. Maybe he might but he enjoys this game now because it is so much fun and makes him feel like he is flying now, without the risk of really crashing, which I like.
Summary: I originally bought FSX and liked it very much. Later on I found out the FSX Deluxe has 1 or 2 planes more that was not in FSX. So I bought FSX Deluxe and gave my friend Mike FSX. I play FSX Deluxe frequently. One of the planes that is not in FSX is the Grumman Goose. The Grumman Goose is an amphibian plane. You can raise/lower the pontoons and raise/lower the landing gear. You can take off in water or on land and land in water or on land.
Summary: This was an upgrade for me from a previous version and Microsoft has done another great job on their flight simulator. I am also using the Saitek PRO Flight Yoke System which makes a great addition to the simulator. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase and would highly recommend this flight simulator to anyone interested in a realistic flight experience.
Summary: I ran the Microsoft Fight Simulator an had no trouble with the game freezing up it is the computer processor over heating more fans for cooling is needed I have a 2.8 Quad Core I fly the jets with out freezing up or stalling Have A Great Day Chuck
Summary: Microsoft Flight Simulator X Deluxe DVD I gave this as a Christmas gift to my dad--retired Air Force, age 75. My adult nephew and dad (his grandfather) play this game frequently. While it is a one-person game, they consult on moves, etc (they take turns). This has become a wonderful memory maker and bonding experience for both of them! They love it. Since I have not played it, yet, I cannot give an accurate review of everything it does.
Summary: Although it has good graphics (not quite as good as X-Plane), FSX's biggest plus is the plane's working instruments and real-world weather. I found FSX much better for practicing instrument flying.
Summary: Just received my copy of FSX and I just love it. This is a vast improvement over FS9. The AutoGen is a great tool that allows more graphics to be seen with little hits on frame rate. If you have a power system you can run all sliders up and see moving car traffic, boats and AI aircraft. Even on low powered system, you can still have a great time flying with good frame rates, which will allow you to concentrate on flying your aircraft with smooth control.
