    There is no better game currently on the Xbox Series than Microsoft Flight Simulator; it is a complete joy on console, and this version even manages to make you forget that playing it on PC is also an option. Microsoft Flight Simulator is quite the feat for airplane simulators, a genuine hit that will follow you through hundreds of hours of gameplay.

    Microsoft Flight Simulator is a game that you have to play to understand just how incredible of an experience it is. It's an incomparable adventure that consistently surprises and delights. The game provides you with all the tools necessary to conquer the unthinkable task of flying the plane. Asobo has laid an incredible platform that will provide hours upon hours of joy for both casual gamers and flight experts alike, and it's only upwards from here.

    Microsoft Flight Simulator expands to Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S as a truly next-generation experience, presenting a technical showcase to flex these new systems. The title sports commendable optimizations on console and maintains solid performance, especially as a title reputable for pushing the best PC hardware out there. While Xbox Series X renders striking vistas with a 4K target, it's the Xbox Series S that takes the spotlight with incredible results on this $299 box. It's the toughest test yet on next-generation systems, but a slick port makes it snag-free.

    It's a visually stunning showcase that really pushes the Xbox Series X, making it a great first title to exist solely on Microsoft's latest hardware.

    Microsoft Flight Simulator deserves to be played - but it shouldn't be considered essential. It's a unique experience, one that won't capture everyone in the same way, but you really do owe it to yourself to find your house, your partner's, your parent's, your favourite holiday destination, and just fly over. The world looks very different from thousands of feet in the air, and for now, Microsoft Flight Simulator is the only way I can get that irresistible point of view.

    Absolutely breath taking game. The graphics are amazing - photo realistic. I am not usually a flight sim fan, but this game is just soAbsolutely breath taking game. The graphics are amazing - photo realistic. I am not usually a flight sim fan, but this game is just so completely engrossing that I find myself losing hour after hour in it - and I have only had the game for al little over a day.

    I have had an Xbox Series X and a PS5 since launch, and this is the first game I have seen that deserves the title of next gen. I hope they use this amazing technology on more games going forward.

    Well done Microsoft! After a less than stellar showing last gen you are really pulling out all the stops this one.

    Microsoft also created a good game with the console version of "Microsoft Flight Simulator". The representations of the earth and the soundsMicrosoft also created a good game with the console version of "Microsoft Flight Simulator". The representations of the earth and the sounds of the different airplanes alone are impressive and create a great and atmospheric atmosphere. Thus, the console version makes a good impression and can convince at any time. You can also choose between different expensive versions of the game. If you would also like to fly a round and you own a Microsoft console, you should definitely pick up the "Microsoft Flight Simulator". It is definitely worth it and even free if you are an Xbox Game Pass owner. Expand

    Microsoft Flight Simulator is that kind of Simulator you show your friends for 15 Min before they get bored.
    The joy of seeing your plane fly
    Microsoft Flight Simulator is that kind of Simulator you show your friends for 15 Min before they get bored.
    The joy of seeing your plane fly stops after 10 minutes of monotony and bland gameplay.
    I would honestly prefer to watch a Nat Geo Documentary of the Earth, instead of playing this.
