Bored after 4 plays

The latest and discontinued 'Flight' Game from Microsoft -

Bored after 4 plays

Postby striker » Wed Apr 11, 2012 8:28 am

The other day I was remembering MSFlight and that it hasn't occurred to me to fire it up since the 1st week when I played it about 4 times to see what it was  all about.

The truth is it simply did not grab me, hold me or even make me think about it in all this time. I playwed it about 4 times in the 1st 2 days. Then I forgot all about it.

But I have been 'flying' FSX and getting new planes and learning new things almost every week.

What I love about FSX (& previous FS's) is how I can do what I like with it. I add the planes I like. I add the scenery I want to add. It is tweakable to a degree that we are all still learning 5 years after release.


What I like about 'Flight'? I can't really think. Really!

That is an honest and unbiased opinion of a long time Flight Sim user and real pilot.

Yeah, flight games aren't fun to just regular gamers unless they have an end to them (missions, wars). I haven't tried Flight yet and I'm not sure if I feel like the hassle really. Besides, I'm still setting up FSX from my most recent re-install!  ;D

Why do folks insist on comparing Flight with FS.9/FS.X when it is not supposed to be in the same class by design.
 
People really should play Flight for what it is rather than for what it's expected to be and in fact exactly what it's not.

There is simply no point in more threads like this...it's been done to death many times.

Apparently others agree as, until today, there has been little activity in this forum for nearly a month.

At that time [1909] the chief engineer was almost always the chief test pilot as well. That had the fortunate result of eliminating poor engineering early in aviation.

MS Flight is a FREE download (you only have to pay for extra addon aircraft and scenery and missions) so i downloaded it and was bored within 5 minutes, the graphics and flight models were nothing to write home about, and the mission was a slalom course around balloons, so i uninstalled it.
People around the sim community are calling MS Flight "arcadey", and yes, i'd say that was a fair assessment, as it's a "fun" sim rather than a flight sim, obviously aimed at putting the fun back into flight simming.
Nothing wrong with that of course, but it won't appeal to grumpy old fart simmers like me..:)
PLEASE STOP LINKING IMAGES, IT SLOWS THE FORUMS DOWN FOR OTHER USERS!!!!

I find it fun to do long flights in FSX rather than missions... Especially when I have to do ILS landings...  ;D
