    X-Plane-Airliner

    Please Register or Log in to view images



    Intro: X-Plane desktop is one of the most realistic flight simulators and now the airliner version has been brought onto the iPod touch/iPhone. X-Plane-Airliner is simply a flight simulator.

    Features: Included are 4 planes. The classic Boeing 747, Boeing 777, Boeing 787 and the giant Airbus A380.

    A good feature is that the environment and weather is customisable.

    Gameplay: When you first start the game you are greeted with some instructions.


    This is the default view.

    At the top you have several different views. First one is default, second one is a 2nd person view, in which you can change, the 3rd one is a camera in which looks at the plane as it moves, the 4th is a kind of film style view, in which the camera constantly looks at the plane whilst moving and shows some nice views. And the last one is a c*ckpit view.

    Here is what the planes look like, from the 2nd camera.

    (In order of appearance: Boeing 747, Boeing 777, Boeing 787, Airbus A-380)

    Price
    : £2.99/$4.99

    Rating: 9/10:
    • Awesome price
    • Overall good flight simulator
    • Nice 3D graphics
    • Realistic
    • However, no real missions might put some people off, and might get boring after a while.

    X-Plane or this Airliner?: Simply Airliner, Airliner has a bigger map, more airports, more cooler planes (In my opinion) and costs only half of the original. Definitely get this version.

    Nah, the normal one is rubbish compared to this. The realisticness from this is very good. It feels very heavy, but it is a plane...

    The normal one costs £5.99, this costs half it's price and a lot more fun.

    Lol really? It's pretty simple, but since I first played flight sims before, it was easy to get used to. You want to tilt the iPod towards you, with maximum throttle and a little bit of flap.

    Review is sexier than Diana.

    But how much is the desktop version and is it REALLY good?

    Airliner owns the regular one and the helicopter one. This has more airports and a complete flight system set up!
