4.0 out of 5 stars The scenery that never sleeps, 11 Aug. 2009
This review is from: Scenery Manhattan for FSX (PC CD) (CD-ROM)
Scenery Manhattan X is quite possibly the most expansive scenery add-on for Microsoft Flight Simulator X, covering in detail the entire island.

The area is based on real satellite imigary which maps out the area to crisp precision. At night the skyline is laiden with all the bloom from the streets below that you'd expect to see in real life. The add-on includes a bonus mission in which you fly a tourist helicopter around Manhattan from the Wall Street heliport. As an added extra, atmospheric sounds are included to increase the feeling of 'really being there'.

On the downside, the sheer volume of scenery objects does have an inevitably detremental impact on system performance and matters aren't made better by the nability to tweak scenery settings. It was also dissapointing not being able to land anywhere on the island, making it unrealisticly touch-sensitive like the rest of the default scenery.

Overall, Scenery Manhattan X is a great add-on; it really brings New York to life and makes for great fun flying around. It must be noted though that this package does not enhance any of the airports in the area (JFK, Newark, La Guardia etc.) however is sufficient enough to make flying in and around New York a fun experience. Four stars.
