There are lots of people out there who love flying... and I'm one of them. I always love playing flight simulation games while I'm not taking to the skies. My friend told me about a new flight sim called ProFlightSimulator. I've tried it and this is my review of it.

What I like about it:

ProFlightSimulator was developed as an alternative to Microsoft Flight Simulator X. This is a fully functioning Flight Simulator that puts Microsoft to shame. Here's why:

It is one of the latest simulators out there on the market. It is developed by professional pro
grammers and flight instructors and the product they got is amazing. The easiness and realism to operate with the simulator is great.

There are few simulators that even get close to the ProFlightSimulator. It is the closest thing to realism that we got.

When storming out there while you are flying, you will feel the turbulence. ProFlightSimulator has extremely smooth and fluid instrument animation that updates at the same rate as your out-the-window view updates. It realistically models real world instrument behavior. Instruments that lag in real life, lag correctly, gyro drift is modeled correctly, themagnetic compass is subject to aircraft body forces.

Also ProFlightSimulator offers you the ability to choose over from 120 different planes and helicopters. They all have different specification and will react to different weather condition according to their status-weight, height, mass, engines and etc. They are all made to be realistic as possible.

With ProFlightSimulator, you can learn to fly without every leaving your home. This is a HIGH quality, professional grade airplane flight simulator with the option to add scenery and airports that encompass the entire globe! Over 20,000 airports can be added with additional scenery sets.

The best feature in my opinion is the multiplayer support. Meet up online with other ProFlightSimulator users to fly in formation, put on an air show or just to have fun. You can easily locate other pilots or yourself with Google Map integration. Imagine having a network flight sim party with all your friends or online users.

Another nice touch is that you will get 100% free Updates / Upgrades for life. That means you can play ProFlightSimulator with the latest updates even in 10 years time.

What I didn't like:

There is quite a lot of data to be downloaded. The main game itself is already 300 megabytes. Now if you're on dial-up, there is an option to get the 4 DVD physical edition in the members area. I suggest you do that.

Conclusions:

ProFlightSimulator is a must for all flight sim fans. The level of realism and the vast expense of the world is worth exploring. The bonuses provided (4 of them) is worth the entire price of the game.

With so much of the world to see, so many aircraft to fly, and so many excited new players joining in, you'll be hooked on ProFlightSimulator for a long time. Visit their site now and I'll see you in multiplayer!
