    As a loyal Palm Pre owner. I feel like I got totally screwed by Luminar Research. I paid $9.99 for X-Plane. Great simulator WITH NOTHING TO DO!! Now the new X-Plane comes out 2 weeks later and has a ton of things to do for the same price.

    Bad for Luminar, Bad form.

    From now on I will boycott Luminar as they failed me.

    They are two completely different games. One is a flight simulator, the other is not.

    X-Plane had no substance. They should have updated it not made a new game. all us original buyers were screwed. I wouldv bought all their products now I will buy none.

    They are separate games on the iPhone too. You purchased a flight simulator and expected it to be an action game. The people who are into flying, who want a realistic flight simulator, would not want their purchase to be "updated" in the way that you are suggesting.

    This would be like if you purchased a Toyota Camry 4-door sedan and then felt screwed when Toyota introduced a new SUV.

    Two completely different products.

    Yeah I'm with the others, you received exactly what the description detailed, if you didn't like it you should not have bought it.

    Also since you had the resources to see exactly what it was and what the company might also put out you received exactly what you paid for and you defiantly had enough information available to make an informed decision.

    Seriously can you not read? Did the description say anything about combat? NO because it is not a combat sim. Its a flight sim. Did you go to the Dev's website or look at any of their other games to get a feel? No? Well then your a rather stupid consumer to be purchasing stuff without knowing what it is. Your fault. You Fail.

    Their website explained exactly, and in great depth, what the program was as well as the fact that they offered a bunch of other products for Iphone that one could reasonably deduce would be coming to the Pre soon. What you "do" in a flight simulator is simulate flight.

    It's too bad that your inflammatory title will discourage others from buying great products from a developer who is obviously really trying to embrace WebOS and provide users with quality products.

    I had no clue a new flying game came out until reading this post. X-Plane Carrier sounds much more up my alley than X-Plane, so I'll go dig up some reviews on it.

    Thanks OP!

    Yeah, but instead of buying a quality car as toyota has you believing. You are left with a POS that may kill you. They lied to so many...

    Hmmm... You just got screwed & I didn't. Now I feel like I just got screwed.

    I agree mostly with the sentiment here, that the original game was never sold as an action game but as a flight simulator.

    But, if you want a tutorial, there isn't one in X-Plane, but is in X-Plane Carrier.

    If you want to be judged on your landing ability, you can't in X-Plane, but can be in X-Plane Carrier.

    These are things that would fit within the main simulator perfectly, but just aren't there.
