    Thanks to Microsoft Flight Simulator, everybody can now get a taste of the excitement that comes with being a pilot. The game is so remarkably good at this that you don’t even need to use your imagination. Your dreams will come true on the screen.

    The miracle of flight is something to savour, no matter your seat. Microsoft Flight Simulator not only captures that feeling, it manages to put the entire world in your hands.

    The latest version of Microsoft's Flight Simulator series is without a doubt the finest work by Asobo Studios yet, one that took full advantage of Microsoft's mapping technology to create one of the best games ever. Flight Simulator 2020 takes a huge leap forward in terms of visual technologies and sets a whole new standard for the Simulation genre, and things get even more exciting after Asobo announced that the 2020 version is going to be a huge 10-year project and the game that we have our hands on right now is just the beginning.

    If you are an experienced pilot and already have X-Plane with premium paid content, you won't upgrade to Microsoft Flight Simulator. Well, not right away. Because if we can find problems with Asobo's baby, none of them is insolvable and will undoubtedly see improvements to strive even more towards perfection. As it stands, Flight Simulator is already a benchmark platform that will undoubtedly establish itself as the civil flight simulation of the decade. Checkmate.

    A visionary, landmark release that's built with the long haul in mind. It will take a while for PC hardware to catch up with the game's potential, but despite some early technical turbulence the experience remains dazzling.

    Hardcore simmers will love it, and for more casual players it is still undeniably fun.

    When all is said and done, Microsoft Flight Simulator in its current state reminds me a lot of Sea of Thieves shortly after launch. The game has a lot of promise and a lot of potential, but it is marred by a number of issues that keep it from really shining. Once the issues have been worked out in six months or a year from now, I fully expect Microsoft Flight Simulator to be a must-have title. Right now, unless you are a hardcore flight sim fanatic, I would pass on buying the premium version and just stick to playing the basic version that's included with GamePass.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. An absolute masterpiece and technological achievement.

    The download process was a little trying but straight forward for anyone with more than 5 brain cells.

    I'm looking forward to spending many hours flying.

    Es un juego interesante pero no creo que cualquiera pueda disfrútalo porque las características del juego son bastante exigentes tengo una pcEs un juego interesante pero no creo que cualquiera pueda disfrútalo porque las características del juego son bastante exigentes tengo una pc de gama media alta y me cuesta jugarlo en alto pero aparte de eso creo que el juego está dirigido más a un público que les guste los simuladores y cosas así tiene tiempos de carga muy largos y bueno de momento no tiene muchas cosas que hacer es bonito viajar por el mundo desde tu hogar pero para un video juego llega a ser un poco tedioso y aburrido en conclusión es un juego que necesita mejorar pero es muy interesante probarlo almenos Expand
