Description

The X-Wing Collector Series is a bundle of two classic LucasArts space sims (X-Wing Collector's CD, Tie Fighter Collector's CD) plus a special limited version of another sim: X-Wing vs. Tie Fighter: Flight School. The games have all been enhanced to run optimally under Windows 95/98, and now have 3D accelerated graphics.
