    I did it - I downloaded Flight - Go on, hit me with a wet kipper but I had to see for myself....
    The verdict...even worse than I imagined. The ICON was about as realistic as Jordan's tits.
    It has some good points, mainly that it was stable and no friggin' autogen popups, it also looked pretty, but that is about as far as it goes.
    I "played" with it for about 2 hours forcing myself to enjoy it. There is SOOOOOOOOO much missing that I cannot even begin - in fact I wont. I also found myself pressing the keys I have mapped for FSX
    I fail to see how this is going to entice new blood into the genre, it was boring beyond belief. Fly from A to B to get a hamburger from an airport 15 miles away. Take some cargo to an airport 15 miles away. Search for some coins near an airport 15 miles away. etc etc.
    Now some bright spark might say "How can you call this boring when you fly in the cruise at 35,000 feet for 2 hours in FSX?"
    Simples - I can believe I am flying an aircraft in FSX, I can fly to Madrid from Manchester following procedures to the letter and get some minor sense of achievement when I do a flight by the book without fooking up. When I shut down after a flight I stop short of stretching, lighting a cigarette and asking Mrs Notgotaclue whether it was also good for her.
    In flight I didnt get that. I just heard myself saying "transport some oranges 20 miles down the island - big deal".
    So, I am glad I tried it but it was below my very low expectation.
