Microsoft Flight Simulator 3.0

subLOGIC / Microsoft 1988
Genre: Simulation
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Microsoft 1993
Genre: Simulation
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Microsoft Flight Simulator was the pinnacle of flying in 1993. The game supported SVGA graphics and was complemented by a slew of add on scenery disks.

The first time, I played this game, (in 1993) I was blown away by the graphics and the level of real flight. SO much so I rushed out and bought a Sidewinder Joystick to complement this game.
