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!
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.
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.
