Computer Gaming World, October 1994

"In X-Wing, LucasArts' first attempt at bringing the Star Wars saga to computer gamers, the player was cast as a young starfighter pilot fighting for the Rebels. With the release of TIE Fighter, LucasArts has made an enormous shift in the Force, giving gamers the chance to take the controls of an Imperial TIE Fighter and become the Empire's agent of retribution against the Rebel Alliance."

"Just as in X-Wing, TIE Fighter provides a number of training and mission options. In the training simulator, the player must navigate an Imperial craft through a series of obstacle-filled tubes."

"Perhaps the most impressive element of TIE Fighter is the plot and setting. The Empire is filled with intrigue and rife with treachery, with secret societies and other factions vying for ultimate control of the Empire. This complexity of plot and setting goes several steps beyond the storyline presented in the X-Wing series."

"There simply isn't much to dislike about the game. ith its addictive game-play, pulse-pounding soundtrack and engrossing storyline, TIE Fighter is clearly the best space combat game yet released from the creative folks at LucasArts. The Empire will have you, young one, serve well, and you will have your reward."

Multimedia World, December 1994

"Eye-scorching visuals, skull-cracking sounds, and engrossing, 'you are there' game play makes this one of the strongest entertainment titles to be released this year. The added bonus of being able to fight for the Dark Side - a first for the Star Wars series - put TIE Fighter over the top and into the all-time classic category of computer games."

PC Gamer, March 1995

"X-Wing designer Lawrence Holland scores another direct hit with TIE Fighter, the best space-combat simulation ever created. Most games set in space cast you in the role of the good guy, but not TIE Fighter; here, you not only fly for the Empire, but also seek to gain favor with the Emperor and Lord Vader by fulfilling special mission goals.

"The Gouraud-shaded ships are a wonder to behold, and the action is fast, tense, and full of pyrotechnics. Even if you cheered for the Rebels in the Star Wars movies, you'll thrill to the destruction of X-Wings, A-Wings, freighters, and more. If you like action and haven't tried TIE Fighter, go pick up a copy now. You won't be disappointed."
