I apologise for this not being about AH, but...
 
Anyone here got MS Flight? What did you all think about it? And did you delete it after ten minutes and go back to FSX?

First of all, I think it's great (considering I was a beta tester and got all starting DLC for free). But I got got admit, the clouds look horrible and the wave animation is horrible. Also, Microsoft needs to look into bringing the world to life (Hopefully in ONE DLC pack).

At least, they're scenery is BETTER than FSX and their frame rates aren't that bad (unless you're in multiplayer and you spawn anywhere OTHER than an airport).

In conclusion, I don't think FLIGHT is Microsoft FAIL, but it surely isn't what I hoped for. I'm fine with it only being Hawaii for a while. But with no AI, ATC, Road Vehicles, Airport Traffic, People? That I can't stand. Ok maybe the AI should come out once Microsoft creates the entire world. Otherwise AI is useless.

One final comment, the trees do swing in the wind and from what I've seen so far, there is wing flex in every aircraft (hard to see, but there is).

I hope that soon, they will include all these features or FLIGHT will get boring. (INCLUDING autopilot and a GPS)

I agree (although as a normal non-beta tester I got zero DLC), the graphics are pretty and it runs well, but it's... empty.

Yeh I know. At least there's some Airport Traffic now. In the beta, there wasn't any Airport Traffic. But the airport Traffic is static.

That's not Traffic, that's Scenery.

True, at least it makes the world of Hawaii look somewhat more real. It makes us feel like that we're not the only ones on the planet (minus multiplayer)

I did beta test flight.

I havent downloaded the final release. While visually its quite nice I found it boring. Nice game but I want a Flight simulator and FSX does that very nicely.

I'm tending to agree with most of the other disappointed simmers now. I beta tested it, and downloaded the release version on launch day. I haven't used it for a good few weeks now. The graphics in it are stunning - especially the shadowing, and performance is leaps better than FSX. However, I feel the scenery is no better than FSX with add ons. It still looks lifeless and generic. I was using Prepar3d the other day with my Earth Simulations Guernsey scenery ported over and there's just no comparison - that is 'the real deal'! There's also too few aircraft (I'm not even counting the ones they've released without cockpits because these will never interest me), and there's too few places to fly. The missions were a bit of fun to begin with but I'm bored of them now. That's not the way I use a flight sim.
Kind regards,
Tom

  I did most of the missons with the new release version. Went ahead and bought the first upgrade and did a lot of the missons there also getting up to about 130k worth of points or about L13. Too boreing feels more like an arcade game now. I only did that much to feel like I got my 29 bucks worth from the up grade. Won't be spending any more there. It's like the same thing EA Sports did with Tiger Woods. It dosen't seem to be takeing off either, most of my upgrade I played online and rarely was there anyone else joinning my game.

I put it on my pc and less than 2 weeks uninstalled it. It'll have to go through major major change before I try it again. Pretty is nice but not enough for me. First Hawaii, then Alaska. At that rate how long before the things complete and how much will it cost us for all of it. They are targeting gamers with flight, not simmers. It's not for me.

I found it very boring.  It was way too easy to fly and land, where as FSX, you really have to know what you are doing.  Plus, there is no TRACKIR support. Deleted it off my system.
