—Sohinki's thoughts on X-Wing vs TIE Fighter.
Star Wars: X-Wing vs TIE Fighter is the third installment of the Star Wars: X-Wing game series, developed by Totally Games and published by LucasArts for Microsoft Windows. It was released on April 30, 1997. An expansion, Balance of Power, was released, which included a previously nonexistant storyline, as it was designed almost exclusively for multiplayer and/or personal practice only.
Including several technical advancements over its predecessors, up to 8 people can play in free-for-all, team-based, and co-op play modes, and has a sophisticated pilot and mission selection system that tracks the player's points and awards. In addition to selecting what craft they will fly, the player can choose their squadron (and thus role in combat) for each mission.
