X-Plane 8 ist der König der Flugsimulationen auf dem Mac. Und das nicht allein schon aufgrund fehlender ernstzunehmender Konkurrenz. Dennoch ist der gut erweiterbare Flieger aufgrund seines hohen Realismusgrades für Simulationsfans die erste Wahl, eher actioninteressierte Heißblüter besuchen lieber den Irak im Kampfjet oder bleiben lieber gleich ganz im Hangar.

X-Plane may have a daunting interface, but it’s still the best Mac flight sim that money can buy, especially considering its developer’s constant efforts to support and improve the software.

There's a lot more to love in X-Plane 8, too much to list here. New configuration options for joystick users allows gamers to specify in more precise detail their control configuration. A new aircraft format allows designers to specify more precise aircraft configurations. And most noticeably, the game runs much faster thanks to optimizations in many areas of the simulation.
