Flight Simulator X is the culmination of nearly 25 years of the hugely popular Microsoft series and maybe the most significant addition to the range of definitive flight-sim experiences. The tenth in the series - hence the 'X', Roman numeral fans - this newest addition supposedly offers a completely new and innovative gaming experience. Flying's flying to us, but there you go. Who are we to argue with the mighty Microsoft? There are dozens of new aircraft to choose from, including the AirCreation 582SL Ultralight and Maule M7-260C Orion with wheels and skis.

You can choose your wings including anything ranging from an easy-to-fly ultralight to a commercial airliner and lots in between.

Almost every kind of aerial action is catered for here, and the Deluxe Edition contains the following bonus content:

  • More high-detail cities and airports in some of the most spectacular places

  • Structured missions to test your skills

  • Enhanced multiplayer features like shared aircraft and live tower control

  • More airplanes including the Maule M7-260C Super Rocket with wheels and skis

  • Introducing the Garmin1000 glass cockpit

Microsoft Flight Simulator X should not put off newcomers to the genre or series; the controls are always the same, and whether it's your first time on the tarmac or a flight sim veteran, adventure on a global scale awaits.
