about  This is a plane which spent most of its life flying from A to B, dropping a bomb once and then retiring. The Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002 version would at least offer a rich environment to fly in. With the radio and air activity in that sim you could at least imagine you were on a Cold War mission of utmost gravity. - Installation - MiGMan: Combat Diary - Reviews

What I said 18 years ago about Flight Sim 2002 seems totally applicable to this new sim:

"Previously to get anywhere near this level of detail for a particular locale you would have to purchase a 3rd party scenery pack and then suffer abominable frame rates.

With the ability to automatically generate buildings, trees, static and flying aircraft and the associated radio traffic this package must have sent shock waves through companies whose business was based on enhancing the Microsoft sims. Still, the open architecture is there and the Pro version even includes an object / aircraft construction kit.

I'd imagine some business plans are hastily being rewritten and in the end we are all better off.

The sim has the ability to support computers and graphic cards that aren't even built yet - but they will be!

Yet it still runs on an average PC and looks good. Who could have imagined 10 years ago that this level of detail and complexity could be modelled on a PC? Only in my dreams!

MiGMan, 2002."

about  MiG Alley achieved very close to a perfect blend of action and graphical realism... and managed to run very fluidly in 1999 on a Pentium 233 with a Creative 3D Blaster Banshee, and that was with all the graphics options maxed out at 800 by 600 resolution. Game developers take note - there is a market for games which actually run well on modest hardware !

about  I think Orbiter should really be flown in a dark room up close to a big monitor. It's like looking out the window of the Shuttle, with Bach, Strauss, and Ravel cycling in the background. - Space - Reviews
