I was a fan of the first X-Wing game, and, immediately purchased this game upon its release in 1999. The inclusion of the Battle of Endor at the end was the selling point. Ever since, I have not needed another computer game! The other reviews have pretty much spoken for the game's plot and basic features, so I won't comment on those. This game, despite its age, is simply one of the best flight simulator type game out there!

If there is one way to describe this game, its detail! From the complicated story, of which you feel a part of, to the 3-D ships, to all the stuff that happens in the missions it is simply incredible! In the heat of a difficult mission, I have often lost myself in the game, only to shudder when returning to reality!

There are over 50 different family business and Rebel Alliance missions. In these you fly YT-1300 (Milinium Falcon type) freighters, Z-95s, X-wings, A-Wings, B-Wings and Y-wings. Compared with all past games, there is alot of function. You can dock with capital ships, carry containers, operate gun turrets on the freighters and fly through space stations. Space battles are replicated down to the smallest details - sunglare, blast shockwave, large debris, even ejected pilots! You have the ability to communicate with the pilots in your squadron, and there is a variety of "comm chatter" that you get from them!

I have beaten the game twice (it takes a long, long time). The final treat is that you get to fly the Milinium Falcon in the Battle of Endor (the big space battle in Return of the Jedi), complete with a VERY challenging run through the Death Star's interior! Strap on your flight helmets...

Besides being the latest (and likely last?) of the X-wing games, "Alliance" is also the best - bringing the series back from the hole it sat in after "X-wing v. Tie Fighter" to the epic trail blazed by the original "Tie Fighter". The real question though is whether its improvements make it worth getting to players who bought the older games. In "Alliance", you play the youngest son of family that owns an intergalactic shipping business. Moving stuff from system to system, you pilot freighters through lawless tracts of space. In a time of civil war, your family tries to stay neutral, even as it's split along pro-rebel and imperial-loyalist sides (guess which side you're on.) Despite its seemingly civilian trappings, the family business is all about combat - your ships come armed with turbo-lasers and ion-cannon and equipped with deflectors. Though you won't face imperials immediately, combat will come quickly - forcing you to fend off the Viraxo, your family's hostile rivals. As the war progresses, the Viraxo leap to the Empire's quarter, essentially forcing you to side with the rebellion, and making you trade your Corellian transport in for an X-wing fighter. Until then, the game offers a series of missions that modestly test skills you may have amassed if you've played the older SW Fighter's games, but are more likely intended as a tutorial. (On an interesting note, sci-fi fans may note a resemblance between the Viraxo fighters and the Angel fighters from "Captain Scarlet".) The game climaxes with the epic battle of Endor, in which you take on the 2nd Death Star from the inside (in a mission I like to refer to as "Operation watch-that-overpass!Read more ›

A space simulation game like 'Wing Commander', Alliance throws you into the Rebellion between 'The Empire Strikes Back' and 'Return of the Jedi' films. As with all such games a good flight controller is strongly recommended. The real innovation is there are two games in one. You play a a space merchant whose family business is attacked and almost destroyed by a rival merchant. After you join the rebellion mission are split between family and the rebellion with about one family mission for every three rebellion ones. While at the end you save the family business there a couple loose threads aren't wrapped up. The rebellion mission end with you destroying the Death Star's reactor in the Millennium Falcon.
I did have one issue: As a DirectX 6 game it would only use software rendering on my DirectX 7 box until I manually changed the game's ini file.

The graphics were a pleasant surprise...they look very clean and detailed. The story is neat, and there are a ton of different ships to pilot in single and multiplayer modes.
If you enjoyed the other XW series games (except XW vs. TF, because that was just horrible), you should seriously consider picking this one up. It barely costs anything now, and it's an entertaining title.

Really.This is one of the best games I have ever played,but there are few who have played it.
Anyway,here's my review.
The game starts off in between The Empire Strikes Back and The Return of the Jedi.You are Ace Azzameen.You are the son of a succesful family who runs a trading buisiness (that is being hassled by the vicious Viraxo). Later,your father is killed,and you become a pilot for the Republic (like pretty much every other Star Wars game). I'm not going to spoil the plot any more.
The game plays like most other combat flight simulators.You assume a first-person view inside the cockpit of a ship,and you fly around and shoot stuff.Sometimes you have missions where you have to deliver certain cargo,ect.
The graphics in this game are excellent (assuming that you have a good video card).If you have a outdated video card,the graphics can get kind of ugly.
The sound and voice acting in this game is excellent,too.LucasArts really picked the perfect actors for their roles.The sound is crisp and clear,but the music is just the same generic Star Wars music we've all heard about a million times by now.
Great graphics
Good sound (and voice acting)
Nice controls
It's Star Wars!
Very cinematic
You should have a good video card
Need joystick
? Why is it so underrated ?
