5.0 out of 5 stars Many a college year wasted...sigh... March 29, 2000
By "lylec"
I remember playing TIE fighter for hours when in college. Hands down one of the best games available for any computer.
The missions are designed to be difficult enough to make you try multiple times, yet I never felt the need to throw the computer out the window because I just couldn't beat that one superhard level.
For Star Wars fans, many familiar characters appear in the game such as Mon Mothma and Darth Vader (when you are a good enough pilot, you are Vader's wing man for a mission).
One of those games I play and replay. Easy to get wrapped up in and really feel like you are there. There is a reason why many critics consider this one of the best PC games ever. I think I'll get off the net and play it right now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Suberb game. February 15, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
X-Wing and TIE Fighter are definitely the best Star Wars games ever made. Absolutely. And this package has those both with all expansions and additional missions in same package. And top of that, both have enhanced graphics. Unfortunately they are not even at the level of X-Wing Alliance, but they are at least better than the original. The resolutions is 640x480 which is unbeatable compared to old 320x240 graphics. Music is real audio instead of some miserable midis. Many have complained about the lack of iMuse as in original DOS-versions, but I don't. If you don't have any versions of these games, but you like them, this is a HAVE TO BUY game.

The third game is worthless, and I haven't even tried that, so I'm not gonna say anything else about that. It's merely a bonus game, which you can toy with a while. It's not an actual game with story or anything.

Oh, and by the way, these both (XW+TF) DO work in Vista or XP, just use the compatibility mode from the properties, if you have problems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two Classics in One Box! May 25, 2000
I've bought the X-Wing collector's CD and also the TIE Fighter one. I've beat the Tours of Duty two or three times on both games. And now I bought this a few months back. Man these two games are simply some of the best stuff to ever be released onto the PC. Replayability is high. I've logged so many hours and shot down so many spacecraft over the years, and I still can't get enough(even my joystick finally broke). I don't care if there are at least a hundred missions on each CD, I still want more!

5.0 out of 5 stars An ageless game May 24, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game for my 486 years ago, back when the game had to be installed from a floppy diskette. The gameplay is second to none. No game since this one has kept me up at night, formulating different strategies in order to succeed in a previous mission failure. The amount of detail in this game blows my mind comparing it to other, more "asthetically pleasing" modern games. The level of difficulty is very, very high; however, I never became so frustrated as to give up, only to try harder. Hands down, my favorite videogame of all-time. This one even tops Diablo II, folks.

4.0 out of 5 stars You have to love its longevity December 24, 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I first played this game when I was in grad school in '93 on a roommate's computer, as a way to blow off steam during the week. It was very enjoyable then. So much so, I bought the X-wing expanded versions (with Imperial Pursuit and B-Wing) a few years later for my own computer, and then the whole collectors' series back in '00 (with the revamped graphics and music).

I had given that copy of the game to a fella in Australia, and eight years later, I've bought another copy to play on the machine I currently have. This is a period of time spanning 15 years (and four operating systems)! That's a testimony to the enjoyability of the game.

Other games have gotten technically more intricate, but oftentimes the current tech is exploited just for the sake of mere "eye candy." The fellows at Lucasarts really came up with a simple but effective combination of action and story to create a long-lasting winner with this one. It captures the essence of the original Star Wars trilogy very well.

3D hardware enabling is a little tricky with modern OSs, but happily, you can find fixes for this on some of the X-wing-related forums online. But even failing that, the software rendering is decent (made up for by the gameplay), and the majority of today's machines can well handle it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome September 20, 2003
By Spencer
I can't believe how fun an old game can be. Sure, the graphics are a little dated, but the gameplay is unbeatable. This Collecter Series is a really great deal that saves a lot of money because if you only buy one of the games you'll end up wanting to play the others too. So buy it today!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best April 20, 2008
By Dave R.
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Simply put : 3 of the best space flying games ever made. All they need to do is revamp the format to work on XP and Vista without issue and Lucasarts will draw in a whole new generation of gamers. You want a classic space flying game with a great story line from a movie, buy this set. You won't regret it. Easy to learn the controls and easy to play. Hours of fun no matter your taste. Rebellion or Empire, the choice is yours.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I don't think there have been any other games that come close to the depth and richness of these games for simulating the "Star Wars" flight experience that we saw in the movies. Action games like Rogue Squadron and Starfighter are fun, but they're watered-down "set pieces" that run on rails when compared to this series. X-Wing was great, and TIE Fighter blew away everyone's expectations for what a space dogfighting game could be.

This collection isn't perfect - the resolution maxes out at 640x480, the 3D support is rudimentary, it's a pain to get it working with Windows XP or newer systems, and the CD music isn't as charming as the original dynamic MIDI soundtrack. Also missing from X-Wing is the option to assign wingmen to fly with you -- a minor omission, but a shame it wasn't included.

Does it hold up today? Not so well -- but these have been re-released so many times that we're probably not going to get an update of this old design ever again, so this is the best way to play the old dogfighting games if you have any interest. The price is certainly right!
