Fly better and higher than ever
Microsoft Flight Simulator 5.0 marks the end of an era. This long lasting multi-million selling series of flight simulator game that became a trademark of the Microsoft OS was the last to be released exclusively for DOS and the last before the series took a sharp turn toward modernization with the CD-ROM. This fabulous simulation holds every great feature its predecessors had - fabulous visuals, a very authentic and realistic flight simulation system with a detailed physics and aerodynamic module, a very well written AI system, fully customisable cockpit and aircraft models and dozens of hours of intense gameplay but with lots of new additions such as introducing textures and even more enhanced realism. When one takes the pilot seat and starts rolling on the runway, they will really feel like they're driving a real plane which is the reason why this series was in existence for so long. The graphics are definitely better than ever. Do I need to say more? If you're a flight sim fan, you ought to get this game for your private collection.
