PC Gamer magazine Vol 4. No. 7 - July 1997, pp.116-117:

    IN X-WING VS. TIE FIGHTER
    YOU WILL BATTLE
    HEAD-TO-HEAD AGAINST
    AN ENEMY MORE RUTHLESS THAN
    JABBA THE HUTT
    AND MORE SINISTER THAN
    DARTH VADER



    (Floyd from Accounting.)

    Today, it's Floyd. Tomorrow, the greatest pilot in the Star Wars universe could be a dentist in New Jersey. That's the beauty of X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter. It allows you to engage in head-to-head combat against real people over modem, network and the internet. It's a real first, and it's in real time. The graphics have been galactically enhanced. The flight engine is phenomenal. The new missions are masterstrokes of space mayhem. There are even single player missions for an all-new explosive experience. No wonder Computer Gaming World proclaims X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter "number one on every space sim-er's wish list." And if you don't believe them, just ask Floyd. http://www.lucasarts.com
