Description official descriptions

You are a young member of a trading family trying to make a living by staying neutral, but your business rivals have other ideas. The galaxy is at war, and sooner or later you will have to choose sides...

X-Wing Alliance is the latest in the X-Wing series of Star Wars space in-cockpit combat sim. You start in your family's Corellian transports (multiple models) as you deliver cargo and practice gunnery against pirates, poachers (who steal your cargo), and rivals. Later, you will get to join the Rebel Alliance, fight plenty of battles, and eventually make your way to the battle that will destroy the second Death Star! Adjust power, change weapons, arm lasers and concussion missiles, even jump into a gun turret (for crafts so equipped), adjust power and recharge. There are OVER FIFTY missions for you to make your way through, plus full multiplayer support. You also get a "souvenir" from each mission you complete... Very cute.

Probably The Best Star Wars Game To Date!

The Good
Great graphics, sound effects, and gameplay. Cinematics are not to bad. You get to play the Battle of Endor from the Return of the Jedi! Wide variety of missions and goals. Great battles. Multiplayer is no to bad. Good sense of complexity. Flying all those cool ships from Star Wars is very cool.

The Bad
Some of the beginning missions basicly suck. Some missions drag, drag, and drag. Multiplayer can get a little laggy and all you get to use for "maps" is just plane space. Yawn! You must have a joystick to play.

The Bottom Line
Has some flaws, but great eye candy. If you like Star Wars, this one is for you. Probably the best Star Wars simulator to date!

How could you not love this game.

The Good
Lucas Arts is a very good gaming company. When they have a successful game, they don't try to change much when they make a sequel. And X-Wing Alliance is just as Tie Fighter and X-Wing. Where it improves on those games is in the plot line and make your own mission scenarios. There are so many different space fighters you can fly. And, of course, great graphics and music.

The Bad
Nothing except that the Azzameen family seemed like a bunch of dorks.

The Bottom Line
You can never have enough Star Wars games.

The BEST space combat sim!!!

The Good
Everything!!! The graphics were excellent, the sounds were great, the music was INCREDIBLE!

The Bad
Nothing, except for some missions. They didn't beta this game too much, and some missions had bugs in them. Other than that, it was excellent.

The Bottom Line
BUY IT BUY IT BUY IT!!!
