Primary Use: Personal
Pros: Great Sound, Gameplay, Graphics, Multiplayer, Challenging
Cons: Hard to Learn, Poor Instructions
Describe Yourself: Frequent Player
Good graphics and sound, ok interior views, many, many aircraft to learn and fly, no real instructions, mainly you have to experiment. Multiple performance inputs, so if you are good with a keyboard and have a good memory, you should be good to go.
