Adrenaline Vault, The (AVault)
I guess it's fair to say I've been waiting for the X-Wing Collector Series for several years now. X-Wing and TIE Fighter have been relegated to the darkest reaches of my shelf, left to rot with their antiquated graphics and obsolete DOS engines. With X-Wing Collector Series, these great games have been given new life, and have regained their rightful places on my hard drive. If you played the originals, you simply must experience the excitement all over again. If not, if you've never played X-Wing or TIE Fighter, and want to discover the games that started it all, now's your chance -- just don't blame me for any sleep deprivation or domestic squabbles.

I must admit these two simulations are better as a solo game than X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter than ever before. This is by the far the best collection of Space-Sci-Fi combat simulations ever released in one box together! Best of all it's only $29, possibly even less in some places depending on where you shop. I'll be playing the X-Wing Collectors Series for a long time to come.
These are classic games that belong on every computer gamer's shelf, no doubt about it. The packages are completely Win95 native, easily installed, and easy on the hard drive. With about 250 total missions, it's hard to really complain at $29.95. (No rebates are offered for registered owners of any of the other games, and no download of the new hardware support is available.) If this bundle feels like more of the same with only very modest additions for fans, that doesn't undermine the essential value or the appeal of two-and-a-half landmark games.
Nun düsen auch X-Wing
und TIE Fighter endlich
das All. Mit aktuellen
Highlights wie Prophecy
kann aber auch die getunte Optik bei weitem
Der angestaubten MIDI-Musik hätte eine
Frischzellenkur ebenfalls gutgetan. Wieso
benutzen die beiden Oldie-Simulationen
nicht die mitgelieferten Audiotracks von
X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter? Dennoch, sowohl X-Wing
als auch TIE Fighter sind immer noch
gute Weltraumsimulationen. Besitzer der
alten Collectors-Editionen sollten sich
trotzdem überlegen, ob die gelinde verbesserte
Optik den Neukauf rechtfertigt.
X-Wing Collector's Series takes three really awesome old games and tarts up the graphics something rotten. Way back when, X-Wing and Tie Fighter were incredible games n it felt like you were in Star Wars when you were playing them n and with their new clothes they stand up to most modern space sims admirably. Needless to say this is an essential purchase for Star Wars afficionados, and fans of the original games (which just about covers everyone), but be warned that you need a joystick to play it. Much to our annoyance.
