X-Wing Alliance offers the most in depth Star Wars deep-space combat experience on the PC. The game features a different style than the simpler Rogue Squadron series. X-Wing Alliance is a simulation, putting the player in a realistically balanced fighter craft that can blast holes in anything from a Star Destroyer to a TIE Interceptor. X-Wing Alliance has both multiplayer and a single player campaign that follows a family of smugglers getting drawn into the galactic civil war.

Here we see the origional model made by "Totally Games" for comparison purposes.

The planetary Fighter gets it's namesake from it's design ethos; although it performs decently in space, the planetary fighter was designed and tested for atmospheric fighting.

With three atmospheric turbine engines, and four sublight engines, the planetary fighter is a formidable opponent in groups, but like the Z-95's, they are easily outclassed by an X-Wing.

The standard weaponry consists of dual laser cannons, and two forward-firing proton torpedo launchers.

The planetary fighter only required a single pilot, however, a second pilot and an astromech droid had the ability to perform light repairs and re-route power between primary systems while engaging in battle, giving the craft a much-needed advantage.

The planetary fighter saw very little actual space deployment. They were used mostly by planetary police organizations, as well as corporate security for customs' stations.

The second pilot seat could be removed and used for a decent amount of storage space, making the craft favorable for smugglers and privateers.

Although the craft had decent hull plating, it was lightly shielded, making it the perfect cost-effective security vehicle.

Get this craft, and every craft the X-Wing Alliance Upgrade team has done so far, in The X-Wing Alliance Upgrade Craft pack, available on the download page on our main site:

I wonder why they never made a sequel. I mean really, you gotta give the developers some credit for doing good storytelling, in a flight sim! Not to mention the largest amount of Star Wars craft ever seen in a game. I'd love to see another one. Heck, I wouldn't mind 2 or 3 more. :) I said it once and I'll say it again, WHY HAS NOBODY MADE A SEQUEL???

The Ai is cheating in a bloody spectacular way. They are not affected by starship tractor beams, their systems do not get destroyed by standard laser shots, they do not take damage from engine wash and they have faster shield recharge.
Of course they have more advantages but I haven't played with this game for at least half a year, so that's all I can recall by heart.
What I admire in this game is how craft can be made nice without ten-thousand poly models. You only need some good textures and your model looks nice.
