I'm curious to hear more about the discussion you had about the game

For truly outstanding Star Wars space battles, look no further than the X-Wing and TIE Fighter games on Mac/PC.
Well I agree the game play is not the title's strong suit however graphically Star Wars is an amazing accomplishment on a home console. Emehr's recommendation of X-Wing is spot on to my chat with my pal. The floppy disk version came out a year before the 32X game and if you look at the graphics they are surprisingly similar. Oh sure, the 32X runs a little choppier than X Wing (assuming you were running a decent PC for X Wing back in the day ... I wasn't) but the details on the ships were actually better on the 32X game.
I guess akator's right, it's trendy for people to bash on early 3d graphics, my buddy was doing so.
