High Score
Den nya grafiken tillsammans med den kompletta samlingen uppdrag gör att Tie Fighter Collectors CD-ROM verkligen förtjänar högsta betyg. Dethär är ett av de bästa spelen någonsin. Serve the emperor above all others.
All Game Guide
Even if you normally do not enjoy flight simulations, there's no doubt you'll enjoy TIE Fighter. Offering flight simulation training missions within the game, it will assist you with your skill as a pilot. You'll find yourself bowing to the feet of the Emperor, ready to crush any Rebel scum who dare to oppose your forces. Evil is good.
Power Play
Die schmächtigen Zwischensequenzen sind sicher nicht die Stärke von „Tie Fighter CD“. Die liegt viel eher im genau austarierten Gameplay. Jede der insgesamt über 100 Missionen verlangt nach einer individuellen Taktik, oftmals sind gutes Timing und geschickter Umgang mit Wingmen und Energiekonfiguration gefragt. Die drei neuen Campaigns bieten allerdings weder neue Schiffe noch sonstige Höhepunkte. Insofern hatte ich mir von der CD-Version mehr erhofft. SVGA-Optik und Sprachausgabe sind erfreuliche Zugaben. Von der Spielbarkeit und der Atmosphäre her kann sowieso nach wie vor keine Weltall-Ballerei mit dem Klassiker mithalten.
With such a rich selection of ships and missions, chock-full of scorching action, TIE Fighter is an easy game to get hooked on. It can get pretty tough in some of those later missions, but don't worry—you can handle it. After all, you're working for the Dark Side.
Game Zero
This version of Tie Fighter has another little feature such as laser turrets that track your ship and rotating communications dishes. Basically a lot of detail has been added, unfortunately that takes up more power on your machine. You no doubt need a high end machine if you want to get the full benefit of Tie Fighter CD. Even if you can't run the SVGA mode, I think it is still worth getting, especially while the rebate is still good for those who own the original version. Overall an excellent space combat simulator.

Eigentlich sind aufgewärmte Spiele nicht unbedingt meine Sache, bei Tie Fighter muß aber auch ich zugeben, es hat sich gelohnt: Mit der schnellen SVGA-Grafik, den Filmsequenzen und der verbesserten Sprachausgabe, vor allem aber wegen der 22 neuen und gut designten Missionen hat Tie Fighter fast schon Wing Commander 3-Niveau.
