The simulation is noted for true 3D simulations of the space shuttle in many situations, from leaving the Vehicle Assembly Building to returning to Earth at the Shuttle Landing Facility, but more importantly it simulated every switch, knob and display on the shuttle control panels.

The developers also provided an in-game primer giving a few pages of information and some diagrams on each of the major Space Shuttle systems.

Shuttle was released with a few bugs. In particular the autopilot could get confused and fly some very unusual re-entry trajectories. In early releases, it was impossible to fly the last mission. Fortunately there was an easy workaround for the latter bug, as putting /ALL on the DOS command line when starting up the game gave one access to every available mission.
