This is a game I have played on my iPod in the past many times.
It's always been more of a relaxing simulation than a game for me.
It was also an early start at showing the iPod was more than
a cell phone game player (graphically).
Now that it has released for the iPad, it looks even better.
I get to fall in love all over again!
This is one of those apps that looks GREAT on the larger
screen. I am impressed.
It's really enjoyable to play while laying in bed.
Since this game does exactly what it is supposed to, and
it does it well, I am giving it 5 stars.
Not a Flight Sim
This boring app put me to sleep after 1 min. Flight Sim, means "Flight Simulator", and I was expecting a minium of aircraft controls, runways to land and take off on. Not. No controls. No runways. Just four slightly differently landscapes to fly over, never landing or taking off. The horizon is rendered before your eyes so you can't really see far into the distance. This is boring. I think they spent all their R&D money on the background music.
I agree to PKMike. Why did they take out the option of changing the view? Yea, of course it lagged a little, but it was acceptable. Please make these updates that PKMike listed and I will fix this review.
