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 already had MSFS 2004. I purchased the MSFSX because of the missions. While I enjoy the missions, I would like to have been able to choose what I fly (at least what type of plane or chopper) during them. I have well over the recommended system requirements for this item but still experience some slight freezing during flight. I would also have liked the option for Heads Up Display. If there is one, I can't find it.
Summary: I was a little disappointed with this release, it didn't seem to add much, and in fact has taken away a little. The graphics are unusable at high settings, causing my computer to buck and stick quite a bit. The 94 release has more planes, and smother graphics in my opinion. The only real "new" plane is the ultralight, and that is nice, but not enough to warrant the very high price at retail. Thank God for e-bay prices and providers.
Summary: My son has been asking for a flight simulator for over a year now. I purchased this one because of the multiple games it has to play. However, it takes 15GB of space on the computer which is a lot of memory! I had to purchase a second drive just to have the ability to load this product. Make sure if you purchase this you have the available space on your pc first.
