My personal ProFlightSimulator review - No hype enticing you to buy

Updated on June 24, 2012

ProFlight Simulator is among the most popular online games in the flight simulator category. And like any other popular games, Pro Flight Simulator has its own pros and cons.

One of the most impressive things about this particular flight sim game is that it has a Google Maps-powered and fully realized world, complete with accurate scenery, terrain, and landmarks for every known area of the globe. Needless to say, this flight simulation game has an extensive selection of maps and has mapped out over 20,000 airports from all over the world. What's more, this game even comes with an accurate map of the solar system!

In addition, ProFlightSimulator has got weather patterns accessed in real time to deliver realistic weather in various areas. If it is raining in Tokyo in real time, then expect it to be raining in Tokyo in the game. With this flight simulations game, you'd feel like you're traversing the earth in your own special, hand-picked plane.


ProFlight Simulator Pros

Pro Flight Simulator boasts of a wide collection of accurately modeled aircraft. Gamers have more than a hundred planes available at their disposal, from F16s, Migs, Concords, to the Boeing 747, the 103 Wright Flyer, and even the latest fighter jet of the military. And the game's team of developers are continuing to add more models.

Another thing that makes ProFlightSimulator worth the money is that when you order the game, you will receive 3 bonuses, which no other flight sim package offers. You will get to enjoy the Interactive Scenery Designer, the Free Combat Flight Simulator Game, and the Kelpie Flight Planner.

This flight simulations game has amazing multi-player options, thanks to an online component that has been implemented expertly. Chatting and formation flying were brilliantly put together.

Aside from all these, the Pro Flight Simulator package comes with a 60-day money-back guarantee, as well as free lifetime updates ensuring the gamer gets constant stream of content updates.


ProFlight Simulator Cons

However, ProFlightSimulator is not without several negative points or cons.

For one, gamers might have to wait for the package to download. It is understandable, though, as the size of the download package is relatively big. Having a slow Internet connection would also contribute to this. It may take around two hours for you to download the blueprints.

Another is that first-time flight simulations gamers may find it a little bit overwhelming, what with its many elements and selections of maps and planes. The good thing is that the downloads are organized according to category, and once you get started, it will get easier. It just needs a little getting used to.

Lastly, for gamers who seek instant gratification, this flight sim game is not for them.  Before you can appreciate ProFlightSimulator, or any  flight simulation game available, you need to take time to learn the controls.  The game needs patience and hours of learning, before it gives you a truly enjoyable realistic gaming.


Conclusion

The ProFlightSimulator software, in short, provides gamers a highly realistic flying experience: from the geographic aspects, to planetary alignments, to aircraft reactions. It is the most realistic flight sim software there is. The developers obviously paid very keen attention to details, and that alone makes it worth the money.
