Summary: Flight Simulator X is falsely advertised as being capable of being operated online with other people, it also advertises that you can work in the tower for air control which would only be available online, but since you are unable to go online in the game, that is Microsoft's false advertising propaganda as well.
Summary: I have tried to play the helicopter game only. I have not tried any planes as yet. I was not able to successfully fly the chopper and there is no great explanation of what to do in the help sections. I will give it another shot soon but for now I'm not having any luck getting the aircraft off the ground in a controllable fashion.
Great package with plenty of features and options for players of all ages.

Summary: It's almost a 4 1/2 stars, but it got a 4 because I find it's not user-friendly enough for an occasional gamer as myself; also, I was expecting to see an Airbus 380 in the choice of airplanes, but that has to be purchased separately. Also, you do need a real up-to-date computer to run it as it requires a 2,2 mhz system to fully benefit from it. Now the good news.
Summary: I've been a Flight Simulator fan since the pre-Microsoft days when I played it on a Commodore 64. Since then, of course, everything's changed for the better. This purchase, actually was to replace my previous set (lost one of the DVDs when it cracked all the way through to the data layer, rendering the set useless).
Summary: Terrible Flight Sim. The worst Microsoft has ever offered. Microsoft has designed the graphics so there are no third party scenery designers and what you see is what you get. That is not enough. The 3D cockpit panels suck too.. I give this one a 2 out of 10 and apparently Microsoft agrees with me because they have not offered a new flight sim in five years. DON'T BUY THIS ONE. IT IS A WASTE OF MONEY!!!!
