Description

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.

Trivia

Still wondering where the heck does that door on the concourse's lower right lead? Download the final patch for the game and the door will now open and lead you to "The Film Room". Just what is the film room you say? A place where you can edit and arrange the in-flight videos you can now record while playing. Sort of like stunt island in space.
