    Conclusion

    Ready to become an accomplished pilot? Head to the realism settings section of Flight Simulator 2002 and get ready to have a ball. With G-effects enabled, one can blackout during an extreme loop. By default, the game ignores crashes and you simply bounce off the ground. However, it can just as easily reset the simulation whenever you crash the aircraft. Don't expect wings ripping from the fuselage and balls of flame shooting into the sky. Damage to aircraft due to stress and crashes with other aircraft can also be turned on. As you can see, Flight Simulator 2002 permits you to have a worry-free flight or a true-to-life one. Just make sure that you check the "unlimited fuel" box before you take the Sopwith Camel around the globe without stopping.

    In my opinion, the $55 price tag of Flight Simulator 2002 is unbelievable. We complain when we see a driving simulation only depict two downtown areas. How could we possibly complain when even cities with a population of near 50,000 such as Grand Forks, North Dakota are seen in fair detail? Not to mention how dense the areas of almost 70 downtown regions across the world are. Flight Simulator 2002 has the capability to entertain both flying enthusiasts as well as those who are still testing out the waters of hardcore simulations. Not only do you have fun with the game, but you learn from it.
