Microsoft Flight Simulator is one of the oldest and most developed flight simulation series of programs in the industry. The most recent installment, Microsoft Flight Simulator X, offers many novel improvements and developments that will enthrall serious and budding flight simulation enthusiasts.
One of the main complains about previous Microsoft Flight Simulator titles was that the world in which the flight took place was not a living, dynamic place, but rather a pre-planned bit-map. Microsoft Flight Simulator X, however, introduces a living world that has real changes and real impacts on the logistics of the flights you will pilot.
Newly initiated and veteran flight simulation gamers alike will find a variety of missions catered to their skill levels. Whether you want to work on basics such as landing and take-off, or more complex feats such as landing on a moving truck, the missions included in Microsoft Flight Simulator X will keep you busy, no matter what your skill. And after you have completed all of the boxed missions, you can look through the vibrant add-on community's additions, which add another level of play to the game.
Another draw to Microsoft Flight Simulator X is the Shared Skies feature, which allows for a multiplayer experience. While playing with other people, not only will you have to react to the game's dynamic world, but you will also have to account for the possibility of human error from your fellow players.
Microsoft Flight Simulator X also boasts 21 types of aircraft for you to fly, ranging from an ultralight flying trike to a massive cargo plane, and even including a helicopter on the way. No matter what sort of plane you want to pilot, you will be able to find its likeness in this edition of Microsoft Flight Simulator.
