Star Wars: X-Wing Collector's CD-ROM LucasArts Entertainment Company LLC 1994

The enhanced CD-ROM version of Star Wars: X-Wing features 6 new missions, various tweaks, bugfixes, easier versions of some old missions, improved graphics, redesigned cutscenes, bonus missions, and voice-overs for the mission briefings and the in-game radio messages. The in-flight engine is also upgraded to the one used in TIE Fighter, which is, in fact, an improved version of the original X-Wing engine, modified to support Gouraud shading and other rendering enhancements. In addition, the two Tour of Duty extensions are included: Imperial Pursuit and B-Wing. X-Wing (1993) begins, seemingly, a few months prior to A New Hope and involves helping the Rebel Alliance with salvage, gathering intelligence, and ambushing Imperial forces. However, the second tour is driven mostly by the interception of the Death Star plans by secretly modified Imperial communication satellites, which prompts the player to help deliver the plans to Princess Leia Organa and eventually stop the Death Star at the Battle of Yavin. The third tour shows the Rebel Alliance desperate to discover the location of the Death Star while the plans are en route to the Rebel Alliance High Command. The expansion packs – Imperial Pursuit and B-Wing – focus on helping the Rebel fleet evacuate Yavin IV after the destruction of the Death Star, along with protecting the Rebel fleet while searching for a new base. The game concludes with the rebels moving into the Hoth System and setting the stage for The Empire Strikes Back. In 1998, Star Wars: X-Wing Collector Series included an enhanced version to run optimally under Windows 95/98, and now 3D accelerated graphics. But it omits many of the small movies and animations found in the Collector's CD-ROM and original floppy disk editions. It does not use the iMUSE interactive MIDI soundtrack from the original game release and the Collector's CD-ROM edition, which is instead replaced by the static Red Book audio-based John Williams movie soundtrack. Furthermore, while previous versions could be played satisfactorily with only a mouse and keyboard, the Collector Series required a joystick to run the game.
