In our Microsoft Flight Simulator review for Xbox Series X|S, Stefan wrote: “Microsoft Flight Simulator on Xbox Series X|S is a remarkable achievement, and one which brings the flight simulator experience into your living room with emphatic effect. There’s no sense that this is a cut-back console port, but one that widens the genre’s influence into places it’s never conquered before.”

  1. It’s really going from strength, especially with PMDG, Fenix and Maddog recently releasing study-level planes. Cant wait to for the Top Gun DLC in a few weeks, plus to see what they show at E3!
