SummaryDraws you in to the Star Wars universe perfectly - from the bad guy's side!
The GoodThe story is the driving force of this game, and is what makes you want to keep playing constantly. It is so utterly involving and unfolds at a good speed. Missions have secret goals which are fun and interesting to discover for yourself, making you want to play missions again on a different difficulty setting.
The BadThe new CD version uses the appalling X-wing Vs. TIE Fighter engine, which does take something away from the original way things worked. However, I should note that it has been modified to play more like the original game, so overall it isn't a big issue.
The Bottom LineThis is a HUGE epic game, drawing you in with great graphics and the perfect control system. Flying for the bad guys is great fun too.
