If you're used to the wide open spaces found in Microsoft's Flight Simulator series, you may find Flight Unlimited 2 a little on the claustrophobic side. The terrain is certainly detailed enough, and they couldn't have picked a nicer city and surroundings, but not everybody will want to fly over and around San Francisco. That said, there are five different civilian aircraft to get to grips with, including the Havelin Beaver which enables you to practice taking off and landing on water. Realistic weather conditions, turbulence, wind sheer, and up to 450 aircraft in the air at once introduce something of a challenge to those used to flying over a desolate landscape, and it's actually possible to navigate using roads, buildings and landmarks - which says a lot about the quality of the terrain technology. A lack of firepower means that it won't be to everyone's taste, but as a flight experience it's a propeller-head's must-buy.
