Simulations games engage the player by attempting to copy aspects of real-life or fictional activities. Simulation games can have a variety of purposes such as training, analysis, or making predictions.
The first windows simulation app for game lovers is Need for Speed. Now, you can get the feel of driving a brand-new Porsche--or even a vintage model from the early days--in Electronic Arts' new Need For Speed: Porsche Unleashed. Featuring the original 356 from the 1940s to the latest innovation, the 2000 911 Porsche Turbo, Need For Speed lets you take one of these masterpieces of German engineering out for a little Sunday test-drive. And you don't even have to have the car back at the dealership before sundown.
This is a motorbike simulator arcade game. If you are a motorbike game lover, this simulation game is highly recommended. Your goal is to collect different objects in this 18-level game as you race through a variety of dangers and pitfalls. You can race against the clock or against someone else in multiplayer mode. In addition to the built-in levels that come with the game, you can make your own levels with the integrated editor. You can also download from the game's Web site any one of the hundreds of different game levels, which were created by players all over the world.
Elasto Mania purports to be a motorbike simulator arcade game. The arcade qualities are immediately evident, as low-resolution graphics suggest a release date circa 1986. The controls are simple to learn, yet difficult to master. Four arrow keys accelerate, brake, lean forward, and lean backward, while the spacebar switches the biker's direction in a 2D universe.
The simulation aspects of the game become clearer once you actually try to ride the bike. Because the back wheel is attached by an elastic band, the physical effects on the motorcycle are dramatic. Accelerate too fast and you'll flip backward. Brake too quickly and you'll fall forward. This elastic twist makes it quite difficult to collect apples, avoid obstacles, and reach the white flower in the fastest time possible, but a few minutes on Warm-Up will have most gamers competent enough to enjoy the game. And at 2 in the morning, as you try to get past the Loop-de-Loop for the 56th time, you'll realize all too well the addictive nature of the Elasto Mania gameplay. A global community of rabid fans has created tons of new levels and graphics for gamers who register for the full version.

Papers, Please is quite an interesting simulation game. It focuses on a dystopian document Thriller. The communist state of Arstotzka has ended a 6-year war with neighboring Kolechia and reclaimed its rightful half of the border town, Grestin.

From award-winning game developer ACES comes Flight Simulator X. The latest installment will include the usual genre leading realism that continues to awe real pilots and will serve as the graphical benchmark for games on Windows Vista. Additionally, Flight Simulator X will deliver for the first time structured gameplay with more than 55 missions to choose from which will test the skills of players of all levels.
Microsoft Flight Simulator X makes a major break from tradition with the inclusion of missions to complete all over the world. The prerelease demo for Flight Simulator X offers you three of those missions, one of which is a tutorial that introduces the basics of flying. Although the demo for the in-progress game includes minor graphical errors that can make aircraft and scenery look slightly askew, there's more than enough fun to have with the four provided planes. The 625MB download is a bear, and the installation process is considerable, but once it's on your machine you'll be up in the air in no time.
The provided planes in the demo are the Air Creation Trike Ultralight, Beechcraft Baron 58, Bombardier CRJ700, and the DeHavilland Beaver DHC2. The areas available to explore are in the Caribbean, including the Netherlands Antilles and surrounding islands. Most notable, perhaps, is the inclusion of the famed Princess Juliana International Airport, with its tiny landing strip and low approach over the beach. Aside from an introductory tutorial, the demo includes two other missions that let you drop flour bombs and fly to (and land at) various airports. We experienced minor frame lag even on the lowest graphical settings on a machine with plenty of processing power, good memory, and a reasonable video card, and graphical glitches are evident at the highest settings. However, the excellent interface, user-friendly missions, and free-flight options make this demo a can't-miss for flight-sim fans.

Fund the research and you will get the greatest rides technology is capable of. Then charge the top prices to your visitors. RollerCoaster Tycoon gives you the ups, but also the downs: Why should people come to your park? Are the rides too expensive? Have you built enough food stalls?

Climb or fall, boom or bust, you are in charge of it all, making sure the rides are safe, finding out what your guests are thinking, and giving them what they want--for the right price.
In Surgeon Simulator 2013 you play the part of a surgeon Nigel Burke. The twist is that Nigel has no medical qualifications - it's just you, some surgical tools and a body. Your goal in this simulation game is to complete various operations as quickly as possible with minimal blood loss starting with a heart transplant. You control the surgeon's hand with the mouse or keyboard but the first thing you'll notice Surgeon Simulator 2013 is extremely difficult to control. You control each finger separately which is tricky in itself but the hardest thing is actually picking-up tools and using them to heal and cut organs.
