Handle Different Aircraft and Experience How to Be a Real Pilot

By Beatrice Tan

On Monday, October 13, 2014

Have you dreamed of driving a plane? Have you ever wonder how hard to operate an aircraft? This game is worth trying if you want to experience how to handle an aircraft. This game is a flight simulator made by Laminar Research.

In this game you will have the ability to assemble and customize an aircraft. Of course when you're driving a plane, the scenery is very important. You can also make your own scenery on this game. This is very different from other flight simulator because it is very realistic and it feels like you're driving and operating a real aircraft. When I first played this game on my PC, I was disoriented because it is very hard to control the plane and I really don't know how to start on this game. But when I started reading reviews and forums and watching videos on Youtube, I become very curious about this game.

This game is quite boring if you're not an aircraft enthusiast. But I find it really enjoying because it challenges me and for me, it is nice to know how hard to operate an aircraft. The graphics is not that cool as well as the sound effects but one thing I like about this game is I can create my own scenery like I can replicate the earth.

Pros

  • You can have the freedom of customizing your own scenery
  • You can select different type of weather

Cons

  • Not that good graphics for me
