Summary

Brilliant space-combat flight sim.

The Good

Absolutely stunning. The graphics and sound were superb at the time, and the excellent gameplay is still in evidence today. Taking part in the actual story of the Star Wars movie really makes the game a winner.

The Bad

At the time I didn't have a joystick, and mouse control was a little hectic. Of course that's my fault, not the games.

The Bottom Line

The most enjoyable of all the combat flight sims out there.
