||I think so it is, if you're a true flight simulation enthusiast. It's a little expensive perhaps, but you get so much in return. Every new FS version brings so much improvement and so many new features as well. Examples of such improvements in FS2004 compared to previous versions: faster and better 3D rendering, advanced ATC, 'smart' AI Traffic, Dynamic weather (with predefined themes), Many (very) old aircraft, etc. See our FS2004 Special for a lot more info, screenshots, to buy it, and discussion with other users.
