5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I expected, 31 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: X-PLANE 10 (PC/Mac DVD) (DVD-ROM)
I was quite doubtful that this was the product I wanted. After using Microsoft FSX I thought that this may not be for me. But seeing as I no longer own a PC and can no longer play FSX I wanted an alternative. As soon as I installed the game it was great. It is as simple or as complicated as you want it with a large variety of options. The supplier sent the game earlier than expected and it runs great on my MacBook Pro. It is great for people with:
- No flying experience,
- People from FSX
- And of course for real-world flyers.

Unlike FSX, X-Plane simulates every aspect of real-world flying. Some people prefer FSX over X-Plane but FSX is a game and only simulates the simple aspects of flying. But X-Plane really does what it says and once you start up the game you are immeresd into an exact replica of real life flying, even if you have it on low graphic quality settings.

However for those who are buying this for Mac I recommend that you have 8GB of ram. 4GB of ram is enough but anything lower and the simulator will not run. Also I recommend a joystick compatible with your computer as people from FSX are used to arrow keys or the WASD keys to fly, but X-Plane 10 does not offer this function to use arrow keys to fly. But if you cannot afford joysticks than your mouse will suffice.

For a great flying experience I recommend this game to both newcomers to the flight-simulators and to people who have flying experience either in simulators or in real-life.
