Microsoft Flight opens up the skies to rookie pilots (review)

Before we start, there’s something I need to confess. When it comes to flight simulators, I’m a complete novice. Fear not though, because Microsoft Flight is intended to get everyone in the air, “whether you are a casual gamer who has always wanted to fly, or an experienced pilot who wants to test your skills.” The question is, can Microsoft’s free-to-play simulator really help rookies like myself get airborne, while maintaining enough depth to satisfy veteran pilots?

Microsoft Flight takes off on Feb. 29

Microsoft said today it will launch its Microsoft Flight flying game on Feb. 29. As we noted before, the game is a free-to-play online-based title aimed at reviving an old flight simulation franchise.
