Microsoft Flight Simulator 98 is a realistic flight simulator, the most popular aircraft in the world. Experts from Cessna and Learjet collaborated with acrobatics champion Patty Wagstaff in the development of the programme. The game is a kind of database of sceneries and airports on a global scale, and each of the ten airports in the game has its own flight schedule, which, among other things, forces the player to wait in line for permission to land. The flight model itself has been tested by real pilots, and the interiors of the machines are an accurate representation of the panels found in real airplanes.
Among the vehicles available in the game you will find two passenger planes, a glider, several propeller planes and a helicopter. The FS98 gives you a lot of freedom and allows you to explore your three-dimensional world without any restrictions. Thanks to the use of force feedback technology, the player can feel turbulence with unprecedented care. However, the program is not limited to single player mode only. The MS Flight Simulator with the number 98 is an age-old game and in comparison to the newest parts it is already a poor production in terms of both graphic design and flight conditions. Today's player can be embarrassed by views such as colorful spots on the ground symbolizing buildings or the appearance of planes. However, its low price and low hardware requirements speak in favour of Flight Simulator 98..
