BPGE #19 – Star Wars: TIE Fighter

We start another week with three more games on the list. To kick things off we start with a space combat simulator call Star Wars: TIE Fighter. Unlike recent games with licensed movie content, titles like this where usually a good sign back in the day. As with most of these older games, I had to spend the first five minutes stumbling around and learning the controls before being able to do anything. Once I had those stored in memory, the rest of the game was surprisingly easy to pickup and play for the first time. I quite enjoyed playing the game and found it surprisingly easy to get into. If you can look past the primitive visuals, we do have a good title in need of a remake here.

Unfortunately for this game, we do not have any installation instructions. Since LucasArts still holds the copyright status on the game, you will need to have your own copy of the game. If you do not own the game, a good place to start is here http://www.mobygames.com/game/star-wars-tie-fighter
