Default Game Impressions

Just spent a half hour or so with this so far. While overall, the experience is generally enjoyable, it's marred by occasional but persistent frame rate hiccups, (4S) as well as regular sound hiccups - almost as if someone got extremely sloppy with editing a loop. The latter might not seem that significant an issue, but when you consider that the engine sound is pretty much all you hear, and that a game like this lives or dies by the degree of its immersion factor, having said immersion broken at regular (10-15 second long) intervals presents a very real problem.

Still, I enjoyed the flying around. The different camera angles are excellent, though the level of ground detail is fairly poor. I'd be the wrong person to ask to judge the realism factor, but I thought overall the game struck a pretty good balance between my vague notions of "arcade" and "sim" with regard to flyers.

I would like to see a video of actual gameplay. I'm close to hit the "Buy" button.

Edit: I found some videos on their own blog http://flyingdevstudio.blogspot.com/p/games.html

The inevitable question: how does this compare to X-Plane (not content wise)?

Default True experience

I have been a Flight Sim fanatic for many years and I really enjoy this app on the iPhone. The level of realism is really set high, which is what I look for in a simulator. The developers really put a lot of hard work and thought into this product.

Played for another hour or so, enough to check out all the planes and try a few landings, and feel pretty much like I'm "done." The problem is, there is just nothing remarkable or outstanding about the game. Not even really much above average. It's competent enough and it gets by, but with literally hundreds of other apps vying for my attention I don't see myself returning to this one.

What would have changed my mind? Flawless frame rate and some ground detail that actually made it interesting to fly from one place to another might have made all the difference.
