The first PC game ever made based on the blockbuster series, Star Wars is a primitive-looking first-person shooter that is nonetheless a very good conversion of the Atari arcade game of the same name. The game puts you in the role of Luke Skywalker, in the X-Wing cockpit, fighting wave after wave of the Empire's TIE Fighters in a dramatic space drama that culminates in the attack on the Death Star itself. The furious, non-stop action, good controls, and just the cool feeling of piloting THE Millennium Falcon makes up for the primitive wireframe-only graphics. Star Wars was great fun for its time, and still stands up well years later with modern shooters in terms of pure mindless fun. Too bad nobody would be able to fly Han Solo's Millennium Falcon in a PC game until LucasArts' expansion pack for TIE Fighter almost a decade later.
