Microsoft Flight Simulator Review - Exactly What I Needed - Press Start

Press Start: "At the end of the day, if you’re wanting to play Microsoft Flight Simulator for the visuals alone (which I suspect is what will draw a lot of people in initially), then you’re going to absolutely love this game. Visually it is absolutely stunning."

lol its funny how everyone all of a sudden likes flight sims. this is cling on gaming at its finest trying thier best to be relevent. games looks good though

Oh, you must be new. I'm 49, and flight Sims were a big deal when I was a kid. Maybe they will have some transgender DLC to get some Sony fans to cling on too. You know, just desperately trying to stay relevant to people such as yourself

I'm also a Flight Sim gamer from the 90s, it's always been niche fella.
Cmon don't kid yourself, it's great for us but 90% of gamers wont play it for more than a hr.
Congrats to the team btw

@valkron1 "I'm 49, and flight Sims were a big deal when I was a kid. Maybe they will have some transgender DLC to get some Sony fans to cling on too."

With a childish remark like that, I highly doubt you're 49....or at least not mentally there yet. And what the hell does transgender dlc have to do with Sony anything bro?? Did the bad man hurt your feelings by poking fun at your flight simulator? 😁

Or possibly people who like flight sim games expressing themselves when a decent flight sim game comes along?

Or everything could be an agenda.
Yes lets make everything an agenda.

I know right, it's like the Xbox gamers finally have there 1st AAA game in 10 years on par with playstation yet 90% of gamepass owners will only play the game for about 1 hour before being bored.
Personally looking fwd to the game as I was big fan in the 90s but I'm waiting for the xcloud/gamepass to be available on my future TV service?

Forza Horizon doesn't exist?

"and all of a sudden millions upon millions of xbox fans are into flight sims."

Maybe that is down to the fact that MS Flight Sim got 93% on Metacritic? Maybe because the game is on Gamepass which mean people don't need to buy it? Maybe because we are living in a pandemic lockdown and people want to do virtual travel?

When you put one and two together, how is it that hard to figure out?

King_Noctis308d ago (Edited 308d ago )

Nobody just “suddenly” like flight sim. The franchise had always sold well. When was the last flight simulator game that came out?

The denial on this site when it comes to good MS news is so unbelievable sometimes.

sprinterboy308d ago

Agree buddy, flight sim got realesed on steam 2014, before that 2006 I believe.
I enjoy the flight sim games but there defo niche and all of a sudden millions upon millions of xbox fans are into flight sims.
I guess all these xbox fans play farm sim, truck sim also?

The fact that the entire earth is mapped and i can fly to places I've been or wanted to go has me most excited. This game is coming out around the perfect time with everything going on in the world today. I have zero interest in learning to fly a plane though, thats where the easy mode comes in. In easy mode, you fly like you would in gta or most other flying games.

At spinterboy, no but I am looking forward to that pizza sim.

spicelicka307d ago

It's the same with Dreams. Absolutely incredible game that most PS4 owners will never play, but still celebrate it.

Also you're forgetting this game is available day one on Gamepass, which gives a HUGE playerbase access to it, who would never care for it otherwise. I know I would never buy it but it's literally thrown in my lap through Gamepass so I'm actually excited to try it.
