5.0 out of 5 stars A great sim, with room for improvement!!!, 11 Aug 2011
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Microsoft's Flight Simulator 2004 is an excellent, realistic flight simulator! You can fly to airports all around the world with air traffic control guiding you along the way. It comes with several aircraft. It has some modern ones from the popular Boeing 737 400 to the huge 747 400 as well as things like the Learjet 45, the Cessna Skylane and the Cessna Caravan Amphibian! The simulator is based, however, around historical aircraft including things like the Douglas DC3, the Ford Trimotor, the Curtiss Jenny and even the Wright Flyer. The game is made all the more realistic by the excellant weather system which if you can connect to the internet (which you obviously can if you're reading this review)you can upload real, live weather from anywhere in the world. You can also navigate using real navigational aids like VOR, DME and fly ILS landings. You can also program VFR and IFR flight plans and ATC will assist you with IFR. There are thousands of company's, websites and individuals around the world who make add on aircraft to add to FS2004 so you will never run out of aircraft to fly. There are a couple of bad things about the simulator though. For a start, lots of airfields are incomplete. For example, Lasham, which is a fairly big airfield, has 3 concrete runways, a large hanger and a long taxiway yet on FS2004 there is just one runway and that is it. You also don't have much flexibility on what you can say on ATC but this isn't so bad.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent...but with one flaw, 22 Jun 2011

Overall Endwar is a great game. The voice command system gives this game an edge over others because it feels like you are actually giving your troops commands however this is where the problem comes up. The voice command system overall is good. I have heard other people saying that it does not work when you have an accent that isn't American and I can see the problem in this as there is no way of setting it to recognise your own accent. I, however have an English accent and I haven't found any problems accept for one. It doesn't recognise the number 2. This is weird because my friend has the same accent as me and for him it doesn't recognise the number 8. This is a problem that needs to be fixed. Overall I would say it is good though because I have spent hours training the voice recognition on my computer and it still get about 70% of things wrong. I would still recommend buying this game though as the game is still good even without voice recognition and the controller method does not take as long as everyone says. It is a good game so buy it.

This review is from: The Saboteur (PS3) (Video Game)
This game is excellent. The story is great but the things you can do while you are not playing the main story are good as well. The map is huge. The missions don't restrict you to one thing. They are almost as open as the rest of the game. DEFIANTLY BUY!!!
