It’s official. FLIGHT will be released February 29th. The latest webisode is a bit of fresh air from Microsoft. With all the negativity that has surrounded community websites and the official Facebook and Youtube pages it is a bold move to show the faces behind the software. In my opinion this kind of video should have been released a long time ago to show that some kind of humanity exists over at Microsoft.
If they manage to make exiting missions this might be a fun game for the kids. However I know few kids that get exited about Kaydets and Mustangs. When I was a kid it was the roar of an F-16 flying overhead that got my blood boiling, not a piston powered aircraft barely moving across the sky.
There are some hints in the video of IFR flying capabilities, so it is definitely more than just an arcade game. How many simulation elements they have brought over from FSX still remains to be seen. The bad news is the pricing. Adding missions, scenery and aircraft looks very expensive.
PS! Seem like Microsoft is tired of the abuse from angered fans and have started moderating comments on their YouTube-page. Cowardly, but probably a smart move.
