Oldie but goodie

Despite its age the game holds up well. Voice acting by Bruce Campbell is a definite draw to his fans and it's mix of starfox yet xwing gameplay is excellent in a nostalgic way. I would recommend to space fighter pilots the galaxy over.

Play as Bruce Campbell in this 2000 space flight game

Tachyon The Fringe is a 2000 space flight simulator. The game offers a good storyline with the main character being voiced by Bruce Campbell. You begin the game flying a powerful and fully armed ship but after a few missions something goes wrong and you are exiled to The Fringe, now having to slowly build up your ships and arsenal by taking missions from different corporations. The game offers you a selection of different missions given by different factions are neutral ones, but eventually you will have to pick one of two sides that will effect the story. Missions are usually about destroying a target or escorting a ship but you can occasionally run into side events that can give you access to new weapons or wingmen. Before each mission you can outfit your ship and purchase weapons. The combat itself is enjoyable and leans more to the arcade side than "realistic," you don't have as many options as in other space sims of the time and many ships feel similar but you do have an ability to quickly change the direction your ship is facing while keeping the same speed. The actors do a good job but the sound effects and soundtrack fall short of what was expected at the time. If you like the old space flight games that released around the 2000s and still have an interest in playing them then you will probably find some things to like about the game.
