Summary: I purchased this simulator in the hope that it would be better than FS2oo2. I was disapointed, the graphics are not as good as the old one. Although the moving vechicles are neat. Maybe I need more time with the new one. To fully appreciate it. But still I would not recommend purchasing it. Better off sticking with the old one.
Summary: I have an older version of MS flightSim, I think it's 2002 and worked with XP. I expected with this newer version more...... of everything especially graphics. I'm now running Vista 64bit with a good graphics card. It looks and plays the same. Some of the detail of landmarks are worse. The price at Walmart is better than every other place I looked so I gave it a shot.
Summary: I bought this game today for about 30 dollars even mabey a little tax and first of all, the price is outrageous for such a bad game, i figured it would be pretty fun to fly planes around but i will list everything i hated about it First, Graphics are awfull even when you max it out, i have a good graphics card and it still is bad Second, it gets boring fast, the missions are way to hard even on easy, and by the way if you want to play this game you have to buy a joystick...
Conclusion: Well with all the hype that this was given by Microsoft it should of been considerably better than it was. Frame rates where supposed to increase yet a fair amount of poeple are reporting that its more the opposite. I personally had to turn down my settings to retain parity with FSX SP1.
