Without breaking any rules I can't say what it's like. But I am
with it . It's not FSX, but I think thats been covered in just about every other post about Flight.
In support of Harry's observation, I'll re-quote myself from a different thread:
Rather than viewing Flight as a successor to FSX (or the MS Flight Simulator series in general), it's better to regard it as a separate but still valid sibling. It DOES lack some functionality that I really hope turns up in the final release (e.g. TrackIR support) but I'm actually finding elements of the overall game structure really compelling, engaging and fun.
Yes, I said "fun".
It's absolutely not going to satisfy the PMDG or A2A crowd just yet, but it's an entirely valid flight sim in its own right. FSX still exists and no one's taking it away from you. MS Flight is shooting for different goals and isn't actually too far off the mark from my perspective.
Perhaps the best way of looking at it is that MS Flight is Flaming Cliffs to FSX's DCS A-10. I appreciate that the analogy isn't perfect, but at least it hopefully gives another perspective.
MS Flight is not going to be for everyone, but it has its place and it's a perfectly valid one. I don't expect the waves of scorn and righteous indignation to stop any time soon (in fact I expect them to get worse and worse, because that's the nature of our passionate and divisive community) but personally think they're somewhat misguided and missing the wider point.
Just at the moment, I'm perfectly happy for the MS Flight beta to take its share of my free time from "full real" RoF, Black Shark and DCS Warthog.
