Cool, but looks like it's a free "demo", just like all the other "PLAY FOR FREE!!!" things. 5 minutes of free content :-)

I am really looking forward playing this flight simulator. I just bought the old flight simulator 2004 for my cousin :)

im a flight sim fan but i never liked the m.s take on it... they just arnt fun games? i thought id give x-plane a try and its just as tedious...
if they turned it into a war game then yeah great. you take off over your home town and defend your own country. world wide on the web... limit the game by setting era's for the plains so you dont end up with an f15 hunting a sopwith cammel and it could be fun... but looking at dashboard and flying to your next ir beacon just doesnt do it for me...

This game looks like it was designed to run on old machines. If I'm going to spend time just flying around from spot to spot, the least I want is for the game to actually look good.

You mean like BF3 being designed to run on older hardware with low settings?
That's pretty much a gaming industry standard tactic to increase sales.

BF3 looks great when you crank it up....I haven't seen any videos of this game yet that show even a moderately high level of graphic quality.

It looks like it was designed to run on old machines, without much effort to make it look much better on anything else.
