• Review: Aerosoft - Airport Anchorage For X-Plane

    Sometimes it's nice to look at a somewhat older product and see how it compares with the latest. Patrick Putlend does that by looking at Airport Anchorage for X-Plane from Aerosoft. He finds that while it shows its age in some areas, it's still a scenery he'd recommend that realistically creates an unusual and scenic location worth flying into.

    Review: Aerosoft - Antarctica X

    Not many scenery add-ons are so ambitious as to cover an entire continent, but Antarctica X from Aerosoft does just that. This cold southern continent actually has quite a few runways serving the research stations there. The scenery for FSX/P3D offers detailed versions of the most important bases, lower detail version of lesser runways, and improvements continent-wide. Plus as a bonus, a Twin Otter aircraft on skis, giving you a suitable airplane to explore with. Reviewer Meng Yu enjoyed exploring this new part of the world.

    Review: Wings Over The Reich

    OBD Software was very successful in creating a truly immersive WWI simulator in their previous "Wings Over Flanders Fields". Now with Wings Over The Reich they apply their skills to WWII air combat. Reviewer Michael Hayward finds that flying these old planes really immerses you in the world of the 1940's where your skills determine the results of the realistic campaigns. For a WWII simulator you won't get better than this.
