Microsoft Flight available

Microsoft has just made available for free download Microsoft Flight, their new PC game covering the main island of Hawaii only.

In order to add more Hawaiian islands along some missions, there is the Hawaiian Adventure Pack (20 US$) and additional aircraft also for sale (between 8 and 15 US$) at the Xbox Market Place.

High quality graphics and good fun, whilst is limited to Hawaii (the Alaska scenario screenshots looks awesome as well) I still find the flight modelling quite good. Also good fun with things to do.

I know that is not everybody’s cup of tea, specially hardsimmers but if this continues evolving, adding more aircrafts and high quality scenario may become a good sim. But at the moment is a game so my expectations are different.

I want to try it but every time I launch Flight it hangs after a while, usually at the loading. It just freezes forever and if I try to google it, it always finds FSX issues.

I will just stick with FSX and keep upgrading my computers through the future until we can “Matrix” flight sims. “Flight” is a wash. They didn’t take any of our real simming requirements into this GAME. FS was a program. Unless Microsoft changes back to us core users, this is pointless.

I personally don’t care for it. But I’d be willing to bet, like everywhere else in Dizzy “Corporate America”, many of the Aces crew or former crew don’t like it either, but what choice do they have if they want a job ! I actually kinda feel sorry for those who are still left with the aces Team, from having to go from what they passionatly worked on for so many wonderfful Years with the former Flight Simulator then, to this now. Kinda like going from a Cadillac to a YUGO ~ :):)

No thanks, I won’t touch it with a 10 foot pole. I don’t want to send them the wrong message – this is not the model I want for my civilian flight sim and I don’t want to give the impression that I’m interested in it by downloading it; give me back a platform open to 3rd party developpers, a global scenery and ATC and we’ll see then.
