  • Microsoft Flight Simulator X Deluxe Edition is a visually stunning game and continues to rack up a string of successes for this venerable warrior and probably the best representation of real flying in the simulated / affordable gaming world
  • Even with the minimum performance system this could still be a problem

      Microsoft Flight Simulator X Deluxe Edition is a visually stunning game and continues to rack up a string of successes for this venerable warrior and probably the best representation of real flying in the simulated / affordable gaming world.

      Pay special attention to the warnings on the outside of the box - you really do need that high end computer with a top of the line processor and graphics card as a minimum.


      If you don’t, you may encounter frame dragging. Even with the minimum performance system this could still be a problem. A simple way to counter this is to lower the graphics representation settings so you have a lower resolution overall, but the computer will be able to handle the required processing speeds and more often than not, you won’t be able to tell the difference. Another thing to be leary of is speeding up the computer to 8x or beyond because the same problem exists - your computer preocessor can be overwhelmed easily.

      Make sure you calibrate your joystick properly (the game has great step by step instruction on how to do this) as this will ease your learning. I was particularly impressed with the clearance/air traffic control interactive piece and the navigation systems are good representations of real world equipment.

      The scenarios ...


      • Microsoft Flight Simulator X Deluxe Edition
      are incredible - everything from landing on snow and ice to water and pentrating bad weather or flying a small helicopter is replicated within the pull down menu of things to do. Or you can just fly randomly which is always fun. Additionally, you can choose from over 10,000 worldwide airports to take off and land from and develope real flight plans and follow them.

      Detractors are minor but they are present.

      You need the upgrades only avialable online - and they will want to download to your C:/ drive no matter what. So if the C:/ drive is not your gaming drive and you wan these downloads, you will need to free some space up to accomodate its download prior to moving over to your gaming partitioned drive.

      Overall, an excellent game and a great representation of lfying - the only thing missing is the G forces!
