I’ve never been into flight sims particularly but this one was a bit different. You take the role a stunt pilot who has to perform a series of scenes for a movie studio. The better you fly, the more money you can earn as you work through the various stunts to in theory earn enough cash to beat the game. Crash too much and you start losing money.
It has missions like flying a plane through a barn and you get to record and play back your stunts to emphasize the movie theme. There were loads of planes to fly and even gliders, parachutes and the space shuttle if I remember right. It was all really well presented and way more interesting (to me at least) than the usual combat sim. I never did finish it and would love to go back and have another go.
