1.0 out of 5 stars Dull, 5 Jun. 2008
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Airliner Pilot: Add-On for FS 2004 (PC DVD) (Video Game)
It was clear shortly after installation that this game was developed in no more than a couple of months.
The interface as a whole is tacky and boring, with no real direction. Despite the manufacturer's description that this add-on gives flight simulator a 'purpose', the game feels as free form as the 'create a flight' option on the fs menu! To add to my dissatisfaction of the product, the starter aircraft, which was taken from a more complex PSS software, hase been dummed down to such an extent that it's more simple to fly than the default flight sim aircraft. As for the 'aircraft importer tool', in which the developer claims that you can import your favorite add-on aircraft, there is no clear method of achieving this; I tried and failed to import any of my PMDG products onto the game, which is one of the main reasons I bought this add-on in the first place.

My final gripe with this game is the poor quality of the exterior visuals. Initially I was excited about designing my very own airline. In reality, there's a choice of banal preset colour schemes where you're given the choice to slap on a short line of text out of a list of fonts.

Overall I am very dissapointed in this game. It is in no way innovative nor dynamic, adding no extra realism or dimension to fs9 whatsoever. That's £20 down the drain for me.
