X-Plane Extreme is out!

Ta da!

I was hoping for a sale, like they did with Helicopter and Airliner. It's probably worth it still.

Edit: Holy crap, it looks awesome!

I know this WILL sound like a stupid question but ummmm what exactly is the point of this game? I don't mean to knock it...I just really want to know cuz if it's really all that good then I'll think about getting it....so is there a point or do you just fly around looking at pilots guages and technical stuff? Is it a game??? I always thought the x-plane "games" were more like a chore (BUT THEN AGAIN I NEVER PLAYED IT JUST LOOKED AT SCREENSHOTS) like something a pilot could appreciate but not the everyday gamer.....now come and scream at me!! but really! What is this THING!???? AND IS IT BETTER THAN ALL THE OTHER X-PLANE GAMES?
THANKS......TO ALL

I know, it's a conspiracy!
Either that or it never really happened?...
I guess only you and I know the real truth...

It's not actually a game. It's a flight simulator. It's in the game section of the app store, so it's a bit misleading. This one seems to be more of a game than the others though. It has jets that fly set paths along with you.

It's an almost true to life flight sim, or about as close as you could without a real yoke and flight stick... There are no "real" objectives.... Well don't crash is the only one I guess... I like the original enough
