GameGenie Reviews X-Plane 6
11:08 AM | Noah Brimhall | Comment on this story

GameGenie.com has published a brief review of X-Plane 6, the flight simulator by Laminar Research. Reviewer James Allen notes the many improvements over previous versions of X-Plane and the large number of features compared to other flight simulators.

One of the most impressive features of X-Plane 6 is, well, the features.... All in all, the features of X-Plane 6 eclipses any other flight simulator by a large, huge, hefty, and enormous margin.
The only area where X-Plane 6 really doesn't stack up to the competition, according to the reviewer, is in the graphics:
X-Plane 6 canít hold a candle to [Flight Simulator 2002's] tear-inducing graphical superiority. But, graphics are just eye candy, right?
X-Plane 6 is available for Mac OS 9 (but is not recommended for OS 9.2) and will be available for Mac OS X in late November. The demo is available for download, and the full version can be purchased for $59.99 from the X-Plane web site.
