Civilian flight sims are about mastering procedures and flying carefully within narrow parameters. I find them a lot of fun, but if you're not willing to spend the time mastering those procedures, then simply flying around looking at scenery does get boring.

Yeah, they've added caches for you to find. That might actually be interesting, but it's nothing like practising the procedures. There is a checklist system which is a nice, non-patronising way to teach you about the plane. It seems odd that there's no air traffic control, indeed I haven't seen any air traffic.

I'm disappointed by the price. 15 for the rest of Hawaii. 10 for an aircraft (a small passenger plane), 5 for another (Mustang P51, presumably sans weapons ). Boo.

I don't think this is worth trying without a joystick to be honest. I'm sure it's X-Box controller compatible but I've no motivation to try it. Keyboard, eh ... it's free so by all means give it a shot, but don't shell out for any DLC without shelling out for a joystick.
