This one's almost notorious… hailed for being super realistic, because three years of programming work by a real-life pilot had gone into it, it having been developed in cooperation with Airbus and Lufthansa… and, as every single contemporary review will point out, a thick manual sporting 150 pages of detailed descriptions of virtually everything, including basic explanations of flight physics, plus an even thicker book of approach routes towards all major western European airports are contained in the package! Wow, right?

Now you see the violence inherent in the system!

How long does a flight from Frankfurt to London take? Let's say 1.5 hours. So basically, the game will make you stare at a hardly changing panorama for that amount of time.

That is one of my main gripes with civilian airplane-simulators in general: They are bit too realistic in this degree. Even if the panorama changes it is rather boring to sit around for hours and do nothing (with the one or the other slight course correction). But making this the main gameplay element seems rather brave. :D At least other flight simulators had the decency of offering you scenarios which had some kind of instant action.

PS: Reminds me a bit of the recent simulator vibe, especially the truck simulators, which are so utterly boring that you just have to go off-road or start collecting tickets.
