Pop the cart in and your immediately treated to a new splash screen which contains that iconic opening crawl, "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away". Adding trak-ball support provides the precise control that was previously lacking and IMO, completes this game. Your now better equipped to handle the dog fights and overall game play. This was already pretty good game, considering the vector like graphics and three stages. All that was lacking was better control, which we now have, and the splash screen is nice touch.
