Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 has finally been released!


I've been keeping an eye on this for ages and will likely get it soon. It looks amazing and reviews have generally been very positive (although it looks like a high-spec PC is needed!).

Anyone else considering getting this?

Absolutely stunning graphics! I remember using a flight simulator back in the late 90's early 00's and it was my fav thing on the pc with joysticks and high res monitor and not forgetting the Matrox G400 dual head video card. To some, it may sound very dated but it was one of the best back in the days :nod:

The other software that I enjoyed was Porche Unleashed which I loved driving around on the Swiss Alps with snow falling and orange glow of the homes covered with fresh snow. Sorry for my rambling but I think I got a bit nostalgic. :)

Oh my god, this game looks incredible - been watching some clips and the graphics are fantastic. Take a look at something like this to see what I mean:

I wanted a G400 soooooo bad at the time :lol:. It had "bump mapping" which was all the rage back then. I think I went for an ATI All in Wonder :).

I see its being said that FS2020 is the new Crysis, it will bring any system no matter how powerful to its knees.

When I first joined PC Review in 1999 (first iteration) I was online with the Matrox all the time on your brand new site! How is that for consolation? I think PC Review could not handle my G400 and crashed :fool:only to resurface again in 2002 and never looking back!

This version of the Flight simulator is absolutely fantastic, so much detail in it, only the best setup can do full justice to this to really enjoy it.

I found this tutorial extremely good, even though I may not be using this software but I went through the turtorial for nostalgia purpose of what flight simulator used to be in early part of the century. This guy has I think 5 tutorials which you can go through to have a good idea of what it offers and how you want to enjoy it.
