Best space-flight-sim game of all time.
18 April 2002 | by (Santa Cruz) – See all my reviews

For many reasons, this is easily the BEST space-flight simulator ever to be made as of 2002. Don't let the fact that it came out in 1995 fool you. With amazing game dynamics and an unparalleled storyline, this game will not only pull you through the missions and levels, but also into the story itself.

You find yourself not as a terrorist rebel of the Skywalker universe, but as a sentinel, an elite sentinel, of the Emperor's vast and powerful war-machine. Missions start off as you start off in your career, as a nobody pilot whose skill quickly shows itself. By the end of the game you have been recognized by the entire Empire and are the Emperor's Hand in all his starfighter operations. You fly alongside Lord Vader, a witness of the spectacle that is possibly the greatest pilot in the galaxy, and take your orders from Grand Admiral Thrawn, the methodical and genial Imperial naval tactician whose shear brilliance nearly brought a new age of Imperial rule years later. Missions are not the everygame hubub of attacking and defending with a few surprises here and there; no way, these missions get nearly impossible by the end, and you have no choice but to become not just good, but the best, capable of crushing all opponents who stand in your way.

This game doesn't just allow you a platform to become a good computer game pilot, it gives you the experience, the training, the cunning, and the shear technological prowess, to beat the best not only the Rebellion, but the Empire, can throw at those loyal to the Emperor. Oh, and you WILL be loyal to the Emperor by the end of the game.
