I am very happy with with game and it has come on a long way since the beta.
I can see a BIG difference in the quality of the world in terms of graphics and the whole environment is more polished.
The flight model (trainee) has changed so much since the beta. I'm not sure if it's better yet. I dont know whether the beta modeled any weather conditions but I'm noticing alot more slippage, buffeting and turbulence.
all in all
Well done BIS!
I do have two little niggles that I want to share.
On the whales mission there was quite a bit of flying. Out to site, film 2/3 sets whales and then a 10min flight back to base. Once I landed the icing on the cake would've been to be able to shut down the helicopter and get out before the mission ended. Why did it end so abruptly as soon as I touched down??
On all the missions of this game the player should fly from base and return to base. No finishing early (it is a flight sim after all).
Sometimes making it back safely is the most rewarding part of any sim. Why not allow the player to savour the moment.
I'm not yet convinced by the asia missions being mixed up with the Seattle ones. It disrupts the whole immersion experience. Maybe this will change later on.
(edit) the road textures still look funny, no improvement from the beta.
