Microsoft Flight Simulator: The entire world in a game – BBC News

It does so using new AI-driven technology – one that needs a constant fast internet connection to work at its best.

The BBC’s David Molloy took to the skies to find out if it lived up to its lofty promise.

  1. Microsoft Flight Simulator is selling eye candy. If that's what you're into, waiting for the eye candy while your internet connection keeps throwing warnings in your face, this is the game for you. If you like to fly a Cessna 172 and a Boeing 747 that have identical flight characteristics, this is the game for you. However, if you want the experience of flight in hundreds of aircraft with highly realistic flight characteristics specific to those hundreds of aircraft, then you may be more inclined to purchase X-Plane 11. There's tons of freeware addons, and X-Plane already had global scenery since 2004. The key difference between these two options, is the first is an eye candy game, the second will teach you how to fly the actual aircraft in real life. An example, but not a very good one sadly, is the maintenance guy that stole a Q-400 and flew around Seattle for a couple of hours before nose diving it in the ground.

  2. In the latest version, you just sit at an airport waiting to pay £300 for a test to see if you have a made-up disease.
