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.
Can be difficult to activate but an outstanding application

Summary: My six year old son is all about airplanes, so this is excellent for him. He enjoys it allot. I spent some 14 hours and three days how ever trying to activate the product in order to use it. Microsoft tech support was helpfull and available and to there credit. This was a challenge to get the application to work in windows 7.
Summary: MS Flight Simulator X is still topstanding among other flight simulators, however it's a little demanding on specs when you choose to set on the higher graphic features, traffic complexity, textures, ... Even with a fairly potent machine you'll find that sometimes the flow isn't as smooth as one could expect. And the image quality is great but not 'awesome' or anything near perfection, but still very enjoyable.
Summary: After trying the Demo I had to get the game to try out all the features. Still working on doing every, plenty of missions to keep you busy, and it has more airports to fly to/out of then I expected including the local grass fields in my area! Highly recommended if you really enjoy flight simulators but make sure your computer has the rights components.
Summary: I would recommend this product for a number of reasons. (its good for (older) kids, they need to use their head.)I do fly and feel that this product is a great, and addictive program. (not a game because there is no score and no losers...only winners) A GREAT DEAL OF SKILL IS REQUIRED however which comes with practice. I was so thrilled with this program it has grown to the point it has its own room dedicated to it. Large TV screens replace the small computer monitors.
Pros: Challenging, Easy to Learn, Gameplay, Makes kids like math, Multiplayer
