Summary

NO# 2 IN MY ALL TIME HALL OF FAME!!

The Good

WHERE DO I START!!! In 1994 I was already a game vet with 7 years of great gaming experience, when my friend said you have to try TIE FIGHTER. At that time I had only ever liked one filight sim of any type. (F-15 II,Microprose) I had bought with much lothing other flight sims that made me a usual customer at the return desk of EB. I had looked at X-Wing and then Tie FIghter in stores but scoffed at them and said you will never see me buy that thing! One day at my friends house I watched him play and 3 minutes later after he agreed to let me take it for a spin, I was on way home faster than the law allows. 6 glorious years later It is still on my hard drive (note it has outlasted 3 computers) and just yesterday I was out and fighting for the empire. I wont bother to tell you why it is so good just trust me, "buy it borrow it plead for it rent it what ever just try it". WSM

The Bad

I wish that the medal section of the game was as cool as X-wing.

The Bottom Line

See above section if you still havent went to buy it.
