So, the bottom line is this: if you put more emphesis in pretty pictures, Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002 is for you (which rhymes, don't you know). However, if you want a more accurate flight model, more features, more design programs, more gameplay options, and more planes, then X-Plane 6 is for you. It's really up to you, as each game does their area of expertise equally well. Of course, by getting X-Plane 6, you can keep The Man down.

X-Plane attempts to satiate demands for a game with the same longevity as real-life aviation, a different flying experience each time. X-Plane does this by offering gamers a world to explore and a potentially endless number of craft in which to explore it.

X-Plane is one of the most accurate flight sims ever created. Building the simulation engine from the ground up with aircraft test data provides true-to-life flight experiences, including everything from severe wind distortions and microbursts to NASA derived space flight. The incredible precision of the physics engine is complemented perfectly by the inclusion of an airplane creation tool, allowing a nearly unlimited number of craft to be added. Where X-Plane falls short is with its substandard graphics. But Laminar never intended X-Plane to be a glamorous Flight Unlimited-style game, where realism is sacrificed in favor of amazing scenery. Instead, X-Plane is designed to please hardcore pilots and simulation buffs. If Microsoft Flight Sim 2000 and Flight Unlimited III don’t provide you with enough of a challenge, X-Plane is by far the most complex flight sim on the market; it will have even the most seasoned stick-jockeys in awe of its precision.

X-Plane n'est certes pas à mettre entre toutes les mains. Si le tout-venant préférera un produit bien plus simple et rutilant comme FS2K2, les amateurs d'appareils au comportement réaliste trouveront ici le simulateur rêvé. La sixième version, enfin distribuée en France, passionnera aussi bien ceux qui s'intéressent à la construction aérienne que ceux qui apprécient le pilotage pur et dur.

X-Plane ist für Freunde ziviler Luftfahrt einfach faszinierend. Gern habe ich die unterschiedlichsten Flieger ausprobiert und mich in mehreren Stunden mit deren Bedienung vertraut gemacht. Lohn der Mühen war eine sichere Landung des trägen B-2-Bombers auf dem Flugplatz Dortmund-Wickede. Durch regelmäßige Updates im Internet erweitert sich die Flugzeug-Palette ständig – Langeweile kommt so nicht auf. Schade nur, dass die Menüsteuerung so umständlich geraten ist. Die 3D-Grafik rangiert am unteren Rande des Durchschnitts. Wer ein Faible für exotische Flieger hat oder nach einer frischen Flight-Simulator-Alternative sucht, sollte X-Plane aber auf jeden Fall eine Chance geben.

X-Plane is supposed to do all manner of realistic things with the flight dynamics, but as far as you, me and the milkman are concerned, it doesn't matter. What does matter is that half the world is apparently underwater, Stephen Hawking is handling the ATC and it's all as user unfriendly as Flight Sim was back in the bad old days. Nice Martian landscape though.
