STAR WARS - X-Wing Special Edition reviews and comments

There's not much to say about the Game itself, a Must for anyone who has already pulled PC games in the 90s ... However, the bad Reviews due to alleged technical Problems cannot be left behind:-Yes, in the Special Edition two Cursors can be seen in the Menu. So Anyone intellectually overwhelmed by the Challenge of distinguishing two Different sized Mouse Arrows should not buy the Game in fact ...-Yes, the Game can only be played with Joystick or Gamepad. How you want to control a Dogfight against a TIE fighter with the Mouse, however, is also veil to me. In Any case, both an XBox 360 Controller and my old Logitech Wingmann Extreme 3D work well for me (by the way, you can choose the preferred Device for older Games in the Windows device settings). So for whom the missing Mouse Control is a knockout criterion, please do not buy either ... This saves You the Frustration and us the tangled negative Reviews ...

X-Wing is a space combat and Flight Simulation in atmospheric Sci-Fi setting. Not only Does you take Control of the namesake X-Wing, but you can also get behind the Wheel of Y-Wings, A-Wings and B-Wings. In addition to the Prooving Grounds for Flight Training, historical Missions in which one takes Control of certain Airmen in important Events or plunges into a Tour of Duty, including Permadeath, as a new Pilot. Pro: + Great Star Wars Atmosphere + All Ship models have a high Recognition value + Good Control, easily playable with an Xbox 360 Controller + Varied missions that give you the Feeling of having an Influence on the plot of the old Saga + Very entertaining Dogfights + Mighty scope + Realistic Size and Strength Ratios of ships + demanding Management of Resources such as Shield energy and Propulsion energy + Damage to the Ship affects the Cockpit interface from Contra:-The Control for all Details of the Ships and for Wingman instructions is very complex-The Game generally requires a high Induction Time-The Degree of Difficulty fluctuates greatly and rises exponentially, especially in a Tour of Duty, thanks to Permadeath-The cockpit interface is In some Ships very confusing-The Graphics are totally obsolete and especially space looks extremely desolate-Sometimes long Flight Passages in which absolutely nothing happens and only the Spawn point is far away from The Mission Goal-The Representation of Opponents and Allies on the Minimap are difficult to detect and on bright Days, it is difficult to identify any more flying Objects on the Map-Since X-Wing has not been optimized For modern Systems, graphics errors and Crashes can occur, but these could be used by me with a few Minutes. Search Will be fixed Without exception: Regardless of its Age, the Weaknesses in Game design, Gameplay and Technique that this entails, X-Wing is still a very entertaining Spacecombat Experience for patient players, especially the Proximity to the Template And The smooth Controls ensure that the Game is still playable today and for fruit-resistant players loosely delivers 20 Hours Of Gameplay 80/100
