This was a modest improvement over the mediocre one that Parker Bros. put out. The game plays better and has more of the arcade feel to it. But it's not much easier! I seem to miss the TIE fighters more than I'm hitting them, and they never seem to have any problems shooting at me. I also find hitting the exhaust port to be hit-or-miss (pun intended) like the Parker Bros. version. Dodging and firing at the fireballs is also problematic. You're almost always hit and you lose shields. The sound effects could be better, and without John Williams' inspiring music playing throughout, it's hard to get into the mood of being Luke Skywalker.
