It's not really a game. It is a general market flight simulator. If you like virtual flying and want to learn a lot about how airplanes work, buy FSX. If you like shoot 'em up aerial "shooters", forget FSX. If you hate complexity, stay away from FSX because it can be complex to use, especially if you do not have a powerful new computer, in which case you will be forced to do a lot of "tweaking" to get it to perform well. There is a lot of engine and systems management, but you can use simpler controls if you wish.

I have just bought it and had a chance to play it about twice. You can just jump in and go pretty much. there s information and the provision for very realistic procedures I gather but when you just plop it in the drive and play it they are not turned on.
Haven't explored it much at all yet though, so far.
