Elsewhere, in our Microsoft Flight Simulator review on Xbox Series S, we read:

“The console optimization made by Microsoft and Asobo Studios is practically perfect both from the technical side and from that of the user experience. The defects in frame rates and loading times do not undermine the gaming experience at all, enriched by the wonders of the landscape and the precision of the flight experience ”.
