TIE Fighter is a space combat simulation that has you playing as an imperial pilot from the time immediately following the battle of Hoth to when Thrawn was promoted to Grand Admiral. The story of the game is actually interesting, even opening with a classic text crawl but done in an imperial propaganda style about the need to restore order to the galaxy while the Imperial March theme plays over it, you also start out as and are treated as a regular pilot, given an easily destroyable unshielded TIE fighter and must earn your way to piloting more advanced ships. Threats don't come just from the rebels but from pirate factions, civil wars, and imperial traitors. Tie Fighter includes a large number of missions with the main game and expansion giving you 54 and the additional scenarios in the 95 Collectors Edition (which was recently added to this version of the game) adding an additional 22. In addition to primary objectives you might be given secondary objectives during extra briefings from imperial intelligence that will help you rise through the ranks even faster, bonus missions can also be uncovered but you will not be told what they are. X-Wing Alliance was my favorite game, and the most advanced, but TIE Fighter is both a great game and puts you in a unique place as a pilot of the empire, and it is well worth playing.
