    A Slap to the face for Flight Sim Veterans.

    Rated on February 29, 2012 by zeta

    GOOD: It's a GAME that anyone can really pick up quickly. Graphics are somewhat nice for a Free2Play title. Hawaii is modeled Beautifully (current resident) BAD: Multiple installation errors+bugg...

    Enjoyable new direction for the classic Flight Sim.

    Rated on March 01, 2012 by Tempest790

    I've been playing Flight Simulator since my Commodore 64 days. I've personally played, C64 Flight Simulator, Amiga FSII, IBM PC FS 4.0, 5.0, 5.1, 95, 2000, and 2002. I didn't really like the directi...

    Very disappointing.

    Rated on March 05, 2012 by badkarma77

    I've been flight simming for a long time. I flew my first flight sim on my Atari 800 computer back in the mid 1980's. It was made by a company called Sublogic. I purchased my First Microsoft F...

    A new perspective on a well worn genre.<br /> A flight sim giving you things to do.

    Rated on March 05, 2012 by kenundrum7

    To start off, this is not about trying to compete with Flight Simulator X, although they took some of the ideas and fleshed them out a bit more, regarding the missions. People complaining that it is n...

    It is a Start in the Right Direction, I am sure more and better will follow...!!!

    I agree with a lot of the Reviews made, thanks to those who have taken the time to comment. As most "New" games, the first one is always "disappointing" after a "Beta". Then Microsoft get all the ...

    Light hearted *game* version of a flight simulator, light on realism but fun to play regardless

    Rated on March 14, 2012 by dastardlymutley

    This isn't a replacement for FSX fans, this is a *game* that should be treated as such. It's been designed to drip feed people with paid content over time, and this may well limit the longevity of th...

    Lacks almost everything that makes it a MS flight simulator game, only 1 area to fly makes this game very boring indeed.

    Rated on March 15, 2012 by vackillers

    When MS Flight was first announced it was something that the flight simulator community was buzzed about for quite some time but as the screenshots got released as a ridiculously slow pace (most only ...

    Limited Flying Game - with no modding possibility.

    Rated on February 08, 2013 by Jason210

    Lacks the features that you expect from a flight simulator, such as world scenery and a variety of aircraft. It also lacks technical features such as an advanced weather dialogue, weight and balance s...

    A new way of approaching Flight Simulation, one that uses a DLC-Model that suits the gametype extremely well.

    Rated on March 16, 2012 by andrew_ribbons

    On approaching this game I gunuinely didn't know what to expect. It could have been too basic, too kiddy-friendly or too sparse. It could have just been MSX, but just the Hawaii part. Instead, i ...
