When I bought the game and installed it,it only worked for that brief time and then once I went off the game it was like it has never been installed, and also it says on the back for a computer with 1gb of ram and mine has 4 and a i4 processor and it lagged like crazy even with the graphics turned down.

Matt, Sussex

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The mission structure and lessons introduce you to flying and provide some interesting challenges. The graphics are excellent and the game runs smoothly on my pc (AMD Phenom II x6 1090T, Win 7 64bit, 4GB RAM, Nvidia 260GTX). It uses the virtual cockpit view extensively, the position of which is adjustable and seems to add to the feeling that you are really flying when the G affects are switched on. The controls are easily accessible and it seems to be a well finished piece of software. No real major problems so far. For the complete package this was a bargain and a welcome return to PC flying.
Bad points:
You need a powerful PC. I tried this game a couple of years ago and my PC then would barely run it. Technology has now caught up with the software to an affordable level.
Some of the mission targets can be tricky to complete due to your position/speed occasionally.
The controls for helicopter flying don't appear to be very realistic.

Ray,

Bad points:
Needs a very high spec computer/graphics card to work at its best? Mine has been fine for every game I have up until this one-and I would be reluctant to spend additional money on a new graphics card-just for this?
Could do with a better choice of aircraft types to fly.

James, Nottingham Too old for this

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Immersive realism, massively in-depth gameplay, online options. Expansion disk offers more variety and 'fun' things to do, like racing and hoisting cargo with a helicopter. It's a proper flight simulator not an arcade game, but you can make it as hard or as easy as you like so everyone can fly from the first time you load it up. A good variety of planes and you can choose from pretty much any airport in the world. The old Hong Kong airport is particularly good.
Bad points:
Would not install at the first attempt due to software conflicts. Quite slow to load up game and loading between missions. If you are expecting action you won't find it. It's a flight sim - you fly a plane and that's it.
