This detailed Pro Flight Simulator 2014 review, we will take a look at positives and negatives of the airplane game that may just be the most realistic and best of the flight simulator games currently available in the market. The 2014 edition features more than 150 aircraft, at least 20,000 virtual airports and a world scenery add-on pack that lets you fly to all the most well known cities around the world.
How To Play The Game:
The first thing you will need to do here is to choose a model aircraft from the over 150 options available. There is also a nice selection of helicopters and gliders to keep you occupied. After choosing an aircraft, you enter the cockpit, you will need to learn the controls and various flight indicators, how to move the aircraft, preparation to fly procedures, taking off and how to land the aircraft. You also need to choose a flight path; where to start your journey and your final destination city.
The options available to you at this stage will depend if you chose to buy the Standard-Pack or Deluxe-Pack. The Standard-Pack is priced at $49 and gives you access to scenery and flight paths only in the San Francisco area. The Deluxe-Pack costs $99 and is gives you access to the World-Scenery pack and option to fly to any major city around the world. You also get the Scenery-Designer add-on that lets you create your own custom scenery and flight paths.
Once you embark on your first journey, something you will quickly notice is that the environmental conditions keep changing. This is because the game accounts for changes in time and changes in weather conditions. So you might start on a bright sunny afternoon and notice day slowly turning into night with the sunny weather replaced by thunderstorms. This unique aspect of realistic changing environmental conditions is what makes this the best of the flight simulator games available today.
Now if you are a beginner, it may take some time to get used to the controls and maneuvering the aircraft, weather patterns and the all important take of and landing procedures. Just take it one step at a time and you have plenty of flight time to eventually earn your strips to become an expert pilot with the game.
How To Get The Game:
Pro Flight Simulator 2014 is currently available exclusively as a digital download from the official vendors website. So a slight negative here is that you cannot simply go out and pick up a copy of the game in stores and have to go directly to the site to get the game. A major plus here though is that at least you do not need to wait for the game to be sent to you in the post and you are given immediate access to download the game straight to your computer.
Once you have buy the game you will receive an email which includes your lo-gin name and password and a download link which gives access the members only area where you can either instantly download the game or order the DVD set (for the more traditional gamers). The game is configured out of the box, so all you need to do is click to download the game and get started immediately on any PC or Mac .
Now, you need to be aware that the whole suite consists of big files, so you will need to have a good internet connection to enable you to download the airplane game quickly. Those with a slower connection may find the download takes a prolonged amount of time. If you have trouble downloading the game or find it is taking too long, you do have the choice to request the DVD set of discs to be sent to you so you can install the game from disc.
The choice to download the game and / or obtain the DVD set is made available to you from the members only area. Each has its own advantages which is mainly based on how good is your internet connection.
The game is sold with a 60 day 100% money back guarantee. This means if yo are unhappy with any of its features then you can return the game and get a full refund as long as it is within 60 days of your purchase. It also undergoes regular updates to keep it fresh and it is good to know that you get free lifetime upgrades and do not need to purchase any new additional features or aircraft models that are added.
Well that ends my Pro Flight Simulator review. I feel the developers have created a detailed and fantastically realistic game and I have spent many hours lost in the virtual world that is as close as it gets to becoming a real life pilot. I would recommend you visit the official site to get started and download the game.
