A very polished and well-made simulator. Not sure if it is 'next-gen' because I haven't played any current-gen flight games, but the graphics do look phenomenal.

Detailed Review

Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 Download Backstory : I started with MS Flightsim on an amber screened IBM clone in 1987. It took several ‘disks’ to load, and I would go make coffee and drink most of it before it would be loaded and ready to play. Looking back, it was simply atrocious. It had no graphics to speak of, ran at less than 5 fps, and used a keyboard as input. In short, it was the equivalent of flying a very stubborn turkey.

But I was hooked. “One day, I mused – this will be real. One day places will look like it does in the real world. One day planes will feel like planes, not just an illusion of something clearly being tortured on a screen.

I can nitpick little flaws in this game, like the fact that the frame rate is inconsistent, and it slows down substantially around massive built up areas, or that the drone camera system is somewhat cumbersome and flight planning could be a lot more user friendly when adding or re-ordering waypoints. But these are minor. And though I am sure they will be ironed out, I could also live with the game as is, because all the rest is just so far ahead of anything else I’ve ever seen. It not just great, its phenomenal.

I’ve been a hopeless pilot, trying my best for years and years, and I’m still rubbish at it. However, this simulator is a quantum leap from the ones before. I can actually land every time without crashing when realism is maxed out. The actual simulation of flight systems and avionics has been vastly improved, making it so much easier to hand fly aircraft than in previous iterations. It actually feels like you are flying a plane, not a simulation. It actually feels like you are in your hometown when flying over it. (And no – that house you are flying into looks nothing like your actual house. In fact it could be mine. )

Sometimes a product comes along that changes everything about its genre. This will change flight simulation forever. This is groundbreaking.

So seeing this being delivered before I get to go to that big refrigerator in the sky, makes me so unbelievably happy. It gives me untold pleasure to admit: “Its finally here and its better than I ever imagined possible”

I’m not going to complain about a single thing, when, for $60, I can go fly anywhere in a faithfully recreated virtual copy the world. Fly over a place and exclaim: “This actually does look like it does in real life.” How ungrateful would I be If I lamented the hours and hours it took to download, when, by the end of it, the whole world exists on a little setup in the corner of my lounge. Honestly, some people.

First of all the game installation is awful. I have 53 hours of playtime but I played like 10-20hours. How? Because game installation is inside the game already so by any chance you cant refund because the installation is much longer than 2 hours. It took me a whole day to figure out a problem with the installation and even recommendations from their official website didn’t work so I had many friends to help me with. In the end, I had to make a new local profile on windows and download the game again on that profile.

After the game installs there are huge loading times but when you first start the game you will be amazed by its wonderful graphics. If anyone is scared of flying the plane then don’t be. You will catch it up almost immediately. There should be all the airports but I didn’t find for example Seychelles airport(FSIA). The weather is dynamic and wonderful.

I didn’t encounter any glitches so far. The game is very well optimized or at least for me. I have never encountered any lag spikes even while flying over high populated cities.

In the end, I think it’s worth purchasing the cheapest version of the game as 120€ for 10 extra planes that are only small planes that you don’t even notice much (excluding the b787) isn’t worth and instead of purchasing any plane on marketplace later is in my opinion much more worth. The game is a simulator so don’t expect missions or anything similar(Even though there are live and few missions but they’re kind of boring and there are only a few of them). You must make your own fun with friends or without.
