Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Star Wars: X-Wing Alliance casts you as the youngest son of the Azzameen family, a merchant dynasty operating in a galaxy far, far away. The game is set in the turbulent time period between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Caught amid increasing tensions between the Galactic Empire and the Rebel Alliance, with business rivals watching for any sign of weakness, the Azzameens are on the edge of financial ruin. Worse, their Rebel sympathies may endanger their very survival.

As the family's newest pilot, you fly tutorial missions at first, under the supervision of your sister Aeron and the droid Emkay. But even as you are training, the situation heats up. Before long, the family has been betrayed, your space station has been seized and you're forced to turn to the Rebellion. Though the game's focus is on combat, the development of this story is tight and suspenseful.

The story and the merchant/smuggler setting give the game plenty of variety. One mission may have you piloting a loaded freighter through an Imperial blockade, while another may place you in the cockpit of an X-Wing on a hit-and-run raid against an enemy battle station. Every ship, every weapon, every sound effect is pure Star Wars, totally faithful to the look--and feel--of the films. This extends to the missions themselves: nothing works as planned, but somehow you and your Rebel allies manage to make it all the way to the climactic Battle of Endor. If you've distinguished yourself in the earlier missions, hot pilots will get the chance to take the controls of the Millennium Falcon and cram a torpedo into the gut of the Emperor's second Death Star.

Controlling the fighters, freighters, and transports in X-Wing Alliance is easy, with all the options you'd expect in a Star Wars simulation. Shield, engine, and weapon power levels are all adjustable, so you, too, can transfer all power to front deflector screens while attacking, or shut down power to weapons to outrun a swarm of TIE fighters. Novice players may find it difficult to control wingmen or to keep track of the changing objectives when missions go sour. But practice makes perfect, and the truly frustrated can simply skip up to three missions without penalty.

With a modest learning curve and graphics that put you right in the milieu of the Star Wars films, X-Wing Alliance will have you flying combat missions for the Rebel Alliance in no time--and loving every minute of it. --Alyx Dellamonica

X-Wing was one of those "Must buy" games when it was released way back in the darkness of the early nineties. It was like nothing anyone had ever experienced before, intense space combat on a grand scale. It was instantly a classic. It was followed up by an even better game, Tie Fighter changed some of our lives forever. Playing for the bad guys actually made for a better game, It was crisp and smooth. It still grips many people today. This special edition did for these games which XvT failed to do, Single player combat with graphics to match. It wasn't just an update, it was completely different game. If there any fans of these original games out there then I heartilly recommend this title. Stop struggling with stack overflow errors, sit back and enjoy crisp 3-D graphics on a stable platform designed for Win 95/98. At only 14 quid, this is a must.

The pinnacle of the brilliant X-Wing/Tie Fighter series, Alliance is almost perfect, but not quite.
There are a great number of missions in the game itself and some of them tie superbly into the storyline and expanded universe novels such as Shadows of the Empire.
Occasionaly a mission that has already taken an age to play will have to be redone due to no fault of your own, and it is sometimes confusing when the rest of the fleet hyperspace to a new battle zone leaving to flap about not knowing where to go, but for the most part it's hugely enjoyable.
The game is split into family-based missions (you are a member of a family wronged by business rivals) and Alliance missions, which are by far the more compelling.
The climax of the game should have been the Battle of Endor assault, but this is where things get disappointing. It is wonderful battling so many TIE fighter's, but the shambolic run to the Death Star main reactor is a total pain, with some of the rooms you pass alomost impossible to find a way out of.
The family missions are left at a giant cliff-hanger and once the Death Star is blown up, there is no end sequence as such to let you know it's game over. I had to look on the internet to confirm I had done everything.
Still, until then it's great and in the combat simulator you can set up your own missions and fly in any fighter craft in the game which should, in theory, offer unending possibilities.

Star Wars X-Wing Alliance is an incredible flying experience. Fight your way through over 50 ,yes 50, missions each one harder than the last. You start as a simple trader family but when the empire attacks you are forced to join the rebellion where you must strike out against all the empire until you are told that a second Death Star has been constructed. There is also the amazing skirmish mode that lets you create your own battles chose out of littrally dozens of your favorite Star Wars vehicles and do battle with any Star Wars vehicle minus the death stars. I would certainly recomend this for any person whether or not they are a Star Wars fan as there is so much to do. It is definitely worth five stars!

Wow. If, like me, you enjoyed and own the original X-Wing and Tie Fighter games you may be wondering why it is necessary to buy X-Wing Alliance. The short answer is "multiplayer". Yes I know there was X-wing Vs Tie Fighter but Lucasarts have improved on the main game engine since X-Wing Vs Tie Fighter and it wasn't really a complete game in any case. The single player missions in X-Wing Alliance are great fun to play... but there is nothing like taking your friends to task with the aid of a quad-linked laser blast. Everyone who enjoyed any of the others in the X-Wing series, or anyone else for that matter, will find this enjoyable as a one player game. To truly appreciate how good this game is though, I recommend a joystick (trust me, its worth the expense if you don't already have one) and some friends. Its so good its just rude.

I have had this game for a while now, and it is still among my favourite games of all time.
The graphics are excellent, and the AI of the enemy ships seem to be pretty good.
For the ultimate experience though, you will want to play against real people over the internet, where you can make a completely customised multiplayer game with 2-8 teams and 16 flight groups. Although trying to give comands to your wingmates is a little tricky while you are flying.
Sheild and Laser canon recharge rates can be modified easily and if you find yourself needing to make a quick getaway, you can simply cancel both to give your engines that extra boost.
The only thing I don't like about it is the fact that they still have the incorrect Super Star Destroyer length of about 8km, when it is actually 17.5km in length, but now I'm just nit-picking.
A truly great game, and one that I will continue to play over again for years to come.

The single player aspect of this game is real good. Will take even the most hardened gamer a couple of weeks of intensive gaiming to complete on Hard. This game really comes into its own when played online. It will take a while to get used to the different tactics needed to beat Human opponents but it is worth the effort. As a single player game its good. As a multiplayer game its Excellent. My favorite online Space Combat Sim!!!
