    Unfortunately, what with this being a simulator, the faster you go, the more difficult the flying becomes. [Christmas 2007, p.67]
  2. My bottom line is that the FSX Acceleration expansion pack is worth getting for the improvements to the infrastructure (carrier operations, Reno air racing), but that better add-on airplanes are available elsewhere. Which, now that I think about it, is pretty much how I felt about Flight Simulator X too.
  3. The bottom line is you won't find a better value, more generous or more diverse FSX add-on than this one.

    Just to respond to Bellino P., Microsoft *is* releasing a free update (Service Pack 2) that will include the DirectX 10 enhancements along Just to respond to Bellino P., Microsoft *is* releasing a free update (Service Pack 2) that will include the DirectX 10 enhancements along with all the other bug fixes included in Acceleration. What you're paying for here are three new aircraft, new missions, and a few new detailed areas. To suggest that Microsoft should have given all that away for free is absurd. Full Review »
