Computer Shopper, September 1997
"Now that you've seen all three Star Wars movies - again - are you ready to take on the Empire (or the Rebel Alliance, depending on your disposition)?
"LucasArts Entertainment Co.'s eagerly awaited X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter (XvT) gives you the chance to square off against human or computer AI opponents in epic space battles. With a little luck and a dash of the Force, you just might earn the right to call yourself a Jedi knight.
"Unlike LucasArts' previous Star Wars games, XvT lacks a linear storyline. Its 60-plus missions aren't bound together by any sort of plot and can be played in any order. The result, at least from a single-player standpoint, is a game that feels rather empty, and one that will surely disappoint gamers wishing for some serious Hollywood-flavored role-play in the familiar Star Wars tradition."
"The Force is not as strong with X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter as it has been with other Star Wars games. If you're hoping for innovative single-player space combat, you're likely to be disappointed. But if you relish live competition - and have a fairly speedy Internet connection - Rebel and Imperial pilots from around the world await you."
PC Gamer, March 1998
"...the X-Wing Vs. TIE Fighter campaign pack Balance of Power, from LucasArts, adds story-based campaigns (complete with cut scenes), new ships, Direct3D support, improved single-player support, and more - exactly what the original game, bereft of any real single-player fun, needed."
