Itâ€™s 8 a.m. on a clear, sunny day in Oakland, California. No, itâ€™s a rainy afternoon in Hong Kong. Or is it evening in Paris? MicrosoftÂ Flight SimulatorÂ doesnâ€™t care.
At a time when gorgeous â€œopen worldâ€� games are the norm, Flight Simulator helps set the bar even higher. Yes, it offers a stunning recreation of a virtual world, with weather and realistic landscapes, real-world traffic and ocean waves, and even, apparently, animals. But the virtual world is our world, our planet, and you can go anywhere in it.
