Take over the controls of a plane in Flight Simulator X.

Although the graphics aren't ideal, this is a game that has received many compliments about the way that the controls are arranged and the ease of which the plane can be navigated. There are a few different planes to choose from, such as large passenger jets to small single-engine planes. You can fly over the ocean and lakes or over the tops of trees.

The one thing about the game is that it does take quite a while to download. There are three modes of play. You can choose to drop sacks of flour on targets below you, complete an initial test flight or practice your landing in the Caribbean. In order to get to the rest of the game, you'll have to practice each task. It's best to start with dropping flour, but you have to be good at identifying your targets and making sure the plane is at just the right point to get the flour on the ground.

If you don't want to fly a plane, there is an option to fly a helicopter. There are 50 various missions that will keep you on your toes. Some of the missions are urgent and must be completed in a certain amount of time while others are all about fun. Some of the missions that you have to complete involve areas that are questionable, such as Area 51. You will also have to search for items that are lost and take them back to the proper place before completing the level. There are numerous airports where you can take off and several types of planes that you can fly and even customize to a certain point.

  • Many fun missions
