Real Pro Flight Simulator for the Mac,
This review is from: X-Plane 9 - Mac (Video Game)
The level of realism of this game is incredible. The new version significantly improves graphics with detailed scenery and very smooth motion. On a Macbook Pro 2.6GHz with 4 GB RAM and 256 MB graphics memory, the game performed really well even with graphic details and game reality levels set to high.
This increased level of realism comes at a price however. And I mean not just the monetary aspect. There is a steep learning to this game. Especially, the flight controls need to be calibrated for your joystick. I cannot imagine playing this game without a good joystick.
There are lots of settings windows to calibrate the flight simulator. And the menus are confusing.
Overall is is a great game for the mac. Its far better than Microsoft Flight Simulator for the PC, this game almost makes MFS look half a century old.
Must buy for Mac gamers.
