4.0 out of 5 stars IT'S NOT REALLY A GAME, IT'S A SIMULATOR June 29, 2012
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Since Microsoft is leaving the flight simulator market, this is the only simulator in town. Without help, you might have trouble taking off. Look around and figure out where some of the settings are, then... Turn off all of the weather, making sure there is no wind. Relax all of the control settings, making it as easy as possible. It's not like the old Microsoft Flight Simulator (that isn't really a simulator), you cannot just hit the gas and take off. If there is wind and you don't compensate for it, you will hear your front wheel skidding as you start sliding off of the runway, that is if you don't have a controller to work the rudder. There is a really cool part of this simulator though, it's the roads. They incorporated real roads for the whole world. That means you will be able to fly around a familiar area in a light aircraft and noticed the roads the way they should be. Search YouTube for "X-Plane 10" videos. This version is USA only (I bought it elsewhere before it was for sale here). The world version costs $70 or $80. It quickly uses up all 512 MB of my video card. According to the documentation, it can easily use 1.5 GB of video RAM at maxed settings. I'm looking at a 2 GB video card. The simulator takes a while to start up. Not sure I believe it, but I have been told that an SSD does not significantly improve load times of this simulator. But it does run in Linux significantly faster than it runs in Windows, I have been messing with Linux for a while, dual booting (Linux makes dual booting easy, but always back up your important files). Good luck and have fun.

Edit 1:
Load time in Windows XP is outrageous. Definitely not recommended. Windows 7 or 8 are okay. Apparently Linux is the fastest. I tested it right here on all of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent upgrade (from a long time FS2004 user) December 4, 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm a long time FS2004 flier. I started my sim career using Sub Logic Flight Sim II on the Apple IIc. I progressed though various flight sims including FS5, Fly, Fly II, Flight Unlimited (all three) and FS2004. I spent almost a decade flying FS2004. I spent hundreds of dollars buying add-ons, GoFlight modules, etc.

When I built a new computer system, I decided to try X-Plane 10 demo. I tried various X-Plane demos, mostly for about 10-20 minutes then never using it again. However with my newest computer setup, I could run X-Plane with very high details and fluid frame rates. This convinced me to abandon FS2004 and go forward with X-Plane. I did reinstall FS2004 and my add-ons, but after flying with X-Plane, FS2004 just looked so "dated".

X-Plane is a different simulator. It was a little difficult getting used to how it flies and specifically how to interface with the simulator. The keyboard and joystick commands were almost all different. Once I got out of my FS2004 habits, X-Plane really came alive for me. I bought this version (North American) because I didn't want to install 50 GB of world scenery when I mostly fly in the US. I saved about $30 over the cost of the world scenery version. I spent that extra $30 buying a few add-ons for X-Plane.

Now you cannot compare FSX or FS2004 directly with X-Plane mainly because most people have advanced custom installs of Flight Simulator, and X-Plane out of the box is not exactly as impressive. But being recently released and actively developed, X-Plane supports some nice new technologies such as multiprocessors and advanced graphics options. I could take advantage of my new computer setup using X-Plane and once I spent about a week tweaking the options, I had X-Plane looking awesome and running great.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Definite Rival to MSFSX October 8, 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First off, I am not a private, commercial, or military pilot. I have been using MS flight sim since its inception. I must say that I like both MSFSX and Xplane 10. I think they both have strengths and weaknesses. I will mention what I perceive to be the good and not so good for Xplane 10. In the end, I think you cant go wrong with either. I like them both!

Good
- Excellent weather modeling and the clouds are spectacular.
- Night flying graphics are highly realistic.
- Allows the user to configure the game to their system's power. It seems you can use a slower cpu and hardware and still have decent results.
- You can get updates from company by visiting their website.
- Runs stable and smooth.
- Some of the planes which come with it are highly detailed and fly awesome!
- You don't need to buy the whole world unless you want to.
- Try landing a helicopter on a rolling deck. This sim replicates the movement; not just a ship moving on still waters!
- Runways are not flat. They are modeled more realistic.

Not so good
- Long initial loading of game.
- Hardly any airport layouts, just runways.
- Confusing and tedious game configuration. Maybe too many things to configure!
- Some of the planes which come with it are NOT highly detailed and remind me of many years ago planes in FS.
- Cost of the game is more than FSX.
- ATC is primitive and planning a trip requires you manually setting the flight computer or gps system if your plane has it. I suppose thats a plus for real pilots.
- No missions available, there are some basic scenarios saved but not full talking missions.

My System:
- AMD Phenom II 965 X4 3.4 ghz
- G-Force 9800 GTX video card
- 4 gb ram
- Windows 7, 64bit
