Did Anyone Ever Play The Game Tie Fighter?

Wed Nov 03, 2004 12:36 pm

Hey y'all,

Did any of you a.netters ever get a chance to play the game Tie Fighter? I always, and still think it's a great fun game to play. The best thing, IMO, about it was definetaly the music. It was very clever, especially the beginning, the modified Star Wars theme. If you do a search for the music, you should find something. You really should, because the music is great.

Yeah, I think so, it is pretty old. I got the CD and play it still today. It's such an addicting and compelling game, made great for its time.

Its a wonderful, wonderful game. Even better (hard to believe) in the series was X-Wing Alliance, which also had a mission creater/editor in it which made it immensly fun to play. The whole series is a smashing success, going from X-Wing, Imperial Assault, B-Wing, TIE Fighter, X-Wing vs. Tie Fighter, and X-Wing Alliance. I owned them all  Big thumbs up

Yes indeed I did play it, and what a great game it was.

It wasn't wireframe, but as previously stated it is pretty darned old. I wonder if I could get it to work on XP. Hmmmm.

yeah all those star wars fighter games had a great story line along with the awesome graphics and music. The story line was what drove the game. Going in front of the Emperor in Tie Fighter near the end, that was sweet.
Do you like movies about gladiators?

Hell yeah, love that game. Got the CD for my birthday one year, didn't stop playing for a long time. Maybe I'll even go dig it up and see if it works on my computer.
