SummaryAmazing 3D engine for its time.
The GoodThe third release of Flight Simulator was a HUGE advancement from the previous one. 640x350x16 colors in the late 80s was quite remarkable for a 3D game. Not too many other games at the time could boast full-framerate, hi res filled polygons on a 386-25. The "pull down menus" were also much nicer than having to type in settings manually. Finally, the game had a rare feature of the time - multi-PC play (null modems, anyone?).
The BadThere wasn't a whole lot of scenery for the five cities provided - flying between them could make for hours of boredom.
