5.0 out of 5 stars Best Flight Simulator yet!, 5 Sept. 2007
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Deluxe Edition (PC) (Computer Game)
An enjoyable game and a big improvement over previous Microsoft Flight Simulator versions. The graphics are excellent with cars, boats and airport vehicles adding a lot more detail to the game. The new in-flight views such as wing view and new aircraft such as the Airbus A321 are good additions as well. I especially enjoy the new missions in the game which contain much more challenges and excitement over the missions in previous versions. The game has also been made easier for new-comers with new tutorials and a Learning Centre enhanced from Flight Simulator 2004.

The issue people are most likely to have with the game is performance. The 2 2.40 GHz processor with 2GB of RAM on my Windows Vista run computer can only just run Flight Simulator at the 'High' settings. I would be cautious with buying the game for much less powerful systems as a lot of features in the game are lost at lower settings - though the game is still playable on many computers with a processor over 1 GHz and a reasonable graphics card if you are willing to turn down the settings. I found that Service Pack 1 further improved performance and there are apparently further updates and a expansion pack on the way.
