I’ve noticed a little bit of a trend online lately – especially when searching around for great flight simulator games – and that is that legitimate, detailed reviews are becoming more and more difficult to come across.
I’m not sure if it has anything to do with people just being too lazy to write up a comprehensive review or if they’re simply not interested in sharing their experiences. What I have noticed, however, is that reviews that were once really useful and detailed in the way that they gave you some great insight into a particular airplane simulator are now more-or-less just glorified bullet points and a screenshot or two if you’re really lucky.
When I first started playing flight simulator games way back when, I used to love sitting down and devouring full-length reviews of games that I wanted to buy or at least play a demo of. Knowing as much as you can about a product prior to purchase is a really big deal to most gamers (and customers in general,) so I’m a little confused as to why they’ve dropped away of late.
In an attempt to fix this problem I’ve done my best to sit down and come up with my own flight simulator review for you guys. I started by making a list of all of the things I know I look for when I’m picking a new flight simulator and I was sure to go into great detail about graphics, game play, and value for money and things like that.
I took it a step further though and ensured I covered the smaller, less publicised benefits and features of the game – Virtual Pilot 3D in this particular case – so that whoever was to read it will come away with a really detailed insight into what the game’s positives and negatives are. The whole point of reading a review is to get a really great view of what the game’s strength and weaknesses are; it is so hard to gather all of that from just a few dot points on a page, right?
Anyway, I’ve put a lot of time and effort into my Virtual Pilot 3D Review and you can check it out via the ‘Review’ tab at the top of the page. I hope some of you learn from it and ideally it’ll assist you in making an informed choice when it comes to purchasing your next flight simulator game.
