Seeing famous landmarks, landing at the world’s most recognizable airports, or just touching down in a remote landing strip in South America is mind-bogglingly cool and an absolutely unparalleled way to virtually explore our world.
There’s near-limitless gameplay potential in Microsoft Flight Simulator and there’s simply no denying how magnificent it is.

Microsoft Flight Simulator isn’t trying to be something that it’s not. It’s a rare case where Microsoft is targeting a dedicated fan base with laser focus and giving them just about every possible thing they’ve asked for, bringing the genre into a modern era with technology that delivers an incredibly accurate simulation that is mostly derived from the real world, real-time data. It’s hard not to come away impressed by this game. Microsoft Flight Simulator is an absolute must for flight sim fans, but anyone with even the slightest bit of an explorer’s nature should definitely enjoy this one as well.

The game is a triumphantly ambitious venture which pushes the boundaries of photorealism in the gaming medium. It requires a lot of horsepower and the support of Azure technology to accomplish such a feat, but these barriers are washed away when you’re staring down at endless cities and thick jungles from thousands of feet in the air. It’s breathtaking, and I hope it brings such simulators further into the mainstream.
