    Flight Simulator is so realistic! I have it for my Xbox Series X. The graphics are so modern. What I really like about this game is the ability to add a mouse and keyboard to the xbox to get better controls. A cool feature in the game is that it uses realtime weather and time. I remember my first flight after opening the game was night and foggy. In real life it was the same!

    Doesn’t get any better than this. Amazing simulator and almost like really flying. Playing on the Series X is no issue at all. Flying with the controller is fine but will upgrade to flying equipment later on. Note had a few issues with it not connecting to the servers but it was because a setting was set to no online play. Toggled this setting to on and we were in business. You do not need Xbox online to play this.

    So far I am getting the hang of it. It is so much better than previous versions I have owned, dating back to fight sim on Commodore 64. Using it to get back to real flying, thought it might help. Graphics are superb. Reaction superb. Need flight controller for more real feel.

    I waited a while for this and it was well worth the wait. I play this on a projector and it's almost as if I am inside the aircraft. I purchased the flight stick and it took the flight experience to a whole different level. I HIGHLY recommend. I play this for hours at a time. One thing I would like to add is it will take some patients to learn. It's not an easy game. It's literally like flying a real aircraft.

    It's been a long time since I tried Flight Sim. Graphics are impressive. A little disappointed with controls using default controller. Sensitivity seems both too little and too strong at times. Would like to see if a quality flight stick makes a difference.

    Got this for my 6th grader who has shown an interest in flying. I figure I'd get her this to mess around with to see if it's just a passing phase. The disc gives you basic knowledge of whatever plane you have selected and lets you fly all over the world. It's pretty neat to fly over NYC and sightsee all of the major attractions. She's played it for several hours and really enjoys it a lot. I think I'm going to have to pay for flight lessons when she gets older!

    Breathtaking graphics! Decent enough gameplay using an XBOX controller. I'm sure it would be better with a flight stick. Main complaint with this game, it lags and crashes on a faily regular basis. Nothing more frustrating than spending 2+ hours in a flight, and right before landing, the game freezes and crashes. Also, as good as the graphics are, if they had used Google maps instead of Bing to render the landscapes, I think they would have been even better. Some very prominent landmarks (Hoover Dam) look distorted and awful. Despite these gripes, I do highly recommend it!

    If you don’t have game pass … then get this version. Least expensive but you can purchase upgrades within game for planes & airports. Get a flight stick or yoke as it would make your experience so much better.
