Summary

Awesome space fighter sim

The Good

The controls are easy to learn, and even got okay with a mouse before I finally bought a joystick. as a sim, this game stands out. I became a better pilot in the "maze", and found that I carried those skills I learned there into the missions and historical battles. the options available, including camera views, targeting, and turning on a recorder to analyze what you did, were outstanding.

The Bad

It's very hard to learn to fly. I actually consider this a plus, since it gave you a sense of accomplishment when you finally learn, but it can be a real turn off to newbies.

The Bottom Line

If you don't have to have instant gratification, X-Wing is well worth the time. After you win a medal, you'll never regret it.
