5.0 out of 5 stars A great sim, with room for improvement!!!, 11 Aug. 2011
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004: A Century of Flight (PC CD) (Video Game)
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.
