Real-time against real pilots; this is Star Wars space combat as it was meant to be! Featuring challenging real-time dogfights of 2 to 8 players, Star Wars™: X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter is one of the most historically significant space combat simulators ever made. Never before were virtual pilots able to climb into the cockpit of an Empire or Rebellion starfighter and have the choice of flying alone or with others, cooperatively or competitively.

Fly over 50 combat missions in nine meticulously enhanced Star Wars starfighters with or against your friends. Or engage in melees, taking on all rivals, to determine once and for all who is the greatest starfighter pilot in the galaxy. The power of the Force™ resides in the most skilled and daring pilot.

Choose your craft and choose your weapons, but most of all, choose your wingmates very carefully. Your life may depend on it!

Key features:
  • Multiplayer modes supporting up to 8 players over LAN.
  • Over 50 combat missions and nine iconic spacecrafts to choose from.

STAR WARS X-Wing vs TIE Fighter - Balance of Power Campaigns reviews and comments

If you're looking for a good Space simulation in the Star Wars Universe, you've come to the right place. While it may have come a bit in the Years from the Graphics, it has a lot to offer Gameplay. I like the complexity of the Controls and the Varied Missions. The Tutorials are also very well explained. This Masterpiece doesn't need a Remake, but it deserves one. 11/10

I got this Game ... And I'm thrilled ... You feel right back like you did in the 90s ... Unfortunately, the Game didn't work right after the Installation ... I first had to change a File (winmm.dll) For it to go, but now everything is going. Oh yes Without Joystick, the Game doesn't work ... So first of all, stop connecting and setting ... Would Still have been nice if you could put the Language in German ... Otherwise TOP Game. Thumbs High.

X-Wing vs Tie Fighter is absolutely awesome! I Spent hours playing It 20 Years ago. The Graphics have been significantly improved compared to their Predecessors and that's why the Game is really Fun. The Controls, while complex, are easy to learn. After a few Minutes, the first Handles are already sitting. In the Simulator, you can gain the first Flight Experiences before you go into Battle. The Battles are tactically well thought Out and provide hours of Fun.

ACTION: X-Wing Vs Tie Fighter requires a Joystick or similar so it can be started at all! To cut a long story short: One of the best Star Wars Games of all Time. If you are looking for a Space Battleshaft Simulator in the Star Wars universe, you are very well catered for in the X-Wing Games. X-Wing vs Tie Fighter was the first Game in the X-Wing Series where you can play the same Mission from different Points of view-either at the Empire or the Rebels. In addition to actually Flying and Fighting, the management of the Ship is also quite important: How much Energy from the Battery do you want to allocate to the Shields and the Weapons and how much is left to the Drive? Which Damaged System should take Precedence in Repair? Should I Draw Energy to the Shields and put them in the Weapons for it? What Type of Missile and Countermeasure do I take with me? Which Ship do I fly for the Mission? These are all Questions to ask yourself during the Game so that you increase your Insinuation. It may be that the Game has not been optimized for Windows 10 and therefore does not run. In such Cases, you should resort to the GOG version. With me (Windows 7 64 Bit), the Game works apart from rare Crashes without Any problems. Clear Recommendation alongside the old Jedi Knight Games and a Game that definitely deserved an HD reissue. Makes it all out of Disney!
