Trivia

The very first combat mission, before the player has met the Envoy to the Emperor, is the only time in the game in which the briefing officer gives both the primary and secondary mission objectives. If the player completes both objective sets, a special section of the debriefing appears as "What extra did we accomplish?" Interestingly, however, upon completing the secondary objectives within the mission itself, a radio message is received from the Secret Envoy, which the player has not yet met. See more »

This game is a classic, period.
2 July 2000 | by dnealSee all my reviews

I remember picking up a copy of TIE Fighter back in 1995, that was the floppy version. TIE Fighter is an example of the best in game design. At the time it had revolutionary 3D graphics (when Wing Commander was still 2D.) The storyline was sort of between the scenes of the movies.

One of the best features of TIE Fighter is its usage of Timothy Zahn's amazing trilogy. You'll find some nice references, and see some favorite people, namely Thrawn.

If you've never played this game, as long as you can bear some older graphics, you will love it. I reccomend the X-Wing Collector's Series as it's designed for Win9x and is 3D accelerated. You lose the original MIDI soundtrack (which I sorta miss, it sounds really really nice on a good sound card) but that's an ok tradeoff for the texture mapped graphics.

You simply can't go wrong with TIE Fighter.
