Ok, so imagine my friends faces when this shoot em up guy decided to buy FSX, after all I am a Crysis, Call of Duty, Battlefield, Left 4 Dead and all those gore producing games. I wasn t even sure I was going to like it and that s why I bought the standard edition and not the Deluxe or Gold editions, which I now regret. Well, let me tell you something, even if you are not an aviation expert but love the sounds, looks and feel of flying then you are going to be AMAZED at FSX!!!! The sights and sounds are incredible accurate and there is something so rewarding of making up your own flight plans, finding your destination and then landing your plane.
When I looked at the reviews of this game I found a LOT of negative reviews. Then I saw that most of them were circa 2006. I can t believe MS would release a so graphic intensive upgrade back then. People were right on being so angry! Well, even in 2010 with a 5770 Radeon card (about 2 notches behind the top of the line video card) this game feels a little heavy. However with my setup (Intel i5, Radeon 5770 and 4 gigs of RAM) it runs very well.
I am not giving it 5 stars because this game could be even better and also because I found some odd things like cars running around in the woods (sometimes no highway shows up) and also when I crash it doesn t really crash it just bumps and goes through structures. Also I would wish that the landing gear made more noise when retracting.
But those are little things. Happy flying!
