ProFlightSimulator is one of the most popular flight simulator games online today. In this ProFlightSImulator review we will take a look at this product and see what are the pros and cons of this package.
ProFlightSimulator Review - What Exactly Is This Package?
Before I go into details, lets take a look at the impressive stats. ProFlightSimulator comes complete with a fully realized and modelled world, with landmarks and accurate scenery for every part of the globe, powered by Google Maps.
The game even accurately maps the solar system, and weather patterns are accessed in real-time to deliver true-to-life weather in every area of the globe. It truly does feel like you're traversing the planet in the plane of your choice.
Speaking of planes, there is a massive collection of aircraft at your disposal, all accurately modelled. Nearly 120 planes were available at the time of this ProFlightSimulator review, and more are being added all the time, thanks to the game's dedicated team of developers.
However, with so many flight sims out on the market and on the internet today, Is ProFlightSimulator really worth the money?
To answer this question and to find if this package is really for you lets talk about some of the pros and cons of this flight sim
ProFlightSimulator Review - The Pros And Cons
Extremely Realistic Flying
This ProFlightSimulator software is more realistic than any other simulation software available. It has been built to be as close to real life as possible. Everything from terrain, aircraft reactions, to planetary alignments & movements.
After playing dozens of other flight sims online I noticed the most about ProFlightSImulator is the attention to detail.
Extensive Selection of aircraft and Maps
I was impressed with the most was the professional, fully detailed, Real Life flight sim with support for over 20,000 of the worlds airports, extensive scenery packs as well as120 different planes from Concords, F16s, Migs, airliners and more.
From the 1903 Wright Flyer piloted by the Wright Brothers, to the Boeing 747 and even the latest military fighter jet, ProFlightSimlator give you the opportunity to experience a huge number of aircraft first hand.
Accurate World Mapping
The game even goes to the extent of including accurate mapping of the solar system and real time weather. So if it’s raining in Florida in real life it will be raining in Florida in the game!
Very Useful Bonuses That Beats Other Package:
When you order ProFlightSimulator you will also receive these 3 bonuses which no other flight sim package offers:
1. Interactive Scenery Designer
2. Kelpie Flight Planner
3. Free Combat Flight Simulator Game
Great MultiPlayer Options
ProFlightSimulator has an online component has been expertly implemented. Two that stood out in the online mode were formation flying and chatting, which to be honest I thought were put together brilliantly.
Money Back Guarantee
The product comes with 60 days money back guarantee and if you are not completely satisfied with what you get, you will receive your money back.
Free Updates For Life
Whats more, included in the ProFlightSimulator package are free updates which ensures that there is a constant stream of content which compliments the package more.
It May Take Time To Download The Package
The size of this download package is not small and if you have slow internet connection it may take you a couple of hours to download all the blueprints.
In this case it may be a good idea to upgrade to the DVD edition (you can do it at the members' area).
May Be A Little Overwhelming At First
Just because there are so many different aircraft and maps, the members' area can be a little overwhelming at first. However the downloads are organized by category and once you get started, you will find it is not difficult to find what you are looking for.
A Simulation - Not an Arcade Game
This is a benefit in my opinion but I need to get this out because some folks may prefer an "arcade" version of a flight simulator. Before you can fully appreciate real flight simulator games you have to learn the controls. If instant gratification is more your preference (arcade style flying), ProFlightSimulator may not be for you. However, if you have the time and patience to devote to learning, many hours of hugely enjoyable REALISTIC gaming await you.
The Bottom Line
Overall, there is no doubt that ProFlightSimulator one of the best value flight simulators available on the market.
We went into this review somewhat sceptical of the high praise it has received from others, but walked away happily converted. The game looks, sounds, and plays better than any other flight sim on the market, and has more planes, locations, and options available to boot. It will keep even the most devoted gamer busy for months, exploring the beautiful planet we call home.
All in all, this is a great game that will appeal to new and veteran flight simulation fans alike.
