* DeadlyTrainingArea: Pilot proving grounds, unlike the Empire's VirtualTrainingSimulation seen in ''TIE Fighter'' and later games, although the "Historical Combat Simulations" briefing states that both the proving ground and historical combat use holographic technology. This caused an issue with one trainee pilot that accidently used hyperspace to reach an imperial supply depot which was luckily unguarded and easily destroyed.

Added DiffLines:

* DivertingPower: Shifting power between engines, lasers, and shields is a key aspect of gameplay. Knowing which system needs boosting at what times can greatly increase your ability to stay in the fight.

* MightyGlacier: The Y-Wing, emphasis on "Glacier", and B-Wing, emphasis on "Mighty". The Y-Wing is relatively powerful but very slow, and it's pretty much outclassed by the B-Wing, which is also rather slow, but with a larger warhead payload, and three ion & laser cannons where the Y-Wing has only two of each.
* MissionBriefing: Admiral Ackbar, voiced by Erik Bauersfeld like in the movies, debriefs the player in the Tour of Duty missions. The historical combat missions are presented by General Dodonna, voiced by Clive Revil, the voice of the Emperor in the theatrical release of ''The Empire Strikes Back.''
* MonsterCompendium: The Rebel flagship has a database of every starcraft and the pilot roster has a detailed summary of the casualties inflicted.

period of Civil War.\\
Using fear and intimidation,\\
the Empire seeks to impose a\\
New Order on the galaxy. Only\\
the Rebel Alliance stands in\\
the way of their evil plans.\\

Not yet willing to confront the\\

marshalling their forces in\\
secrecy. Even now a group of\\
their prized Calamari Cruisers is\\

of Imperial Star Destroyers.\\
\\

* PressXToDie: Sort of. You can eject from your fighter at any time by pressing Alt+E. This will either result in your buddies picking you up, or the enemy taking you prisoner and shipping you back to their base for an unpleasant interrogation. Also, your ejection system can become damaged in combat, and if you get shot down you get immolated in the ensuing fireball and become KilledOffForReal[[note]]assuming, of course, you're not playing one of the training simulation missions[[/note]]. In the latter two cases, after you get back to the sign-in desk you can choose to revive your pilot, albeit at the expense of all his [[BraggingRightsReward points and awards]].

* CutScene: Very rewarding and compelling ones. bear in mind ''X-Wing'' was one of the first complex cinematic works made after the ''Franchise/StarWars'' movies and the first ''Star Wars'' game with a major storyline. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nSSNonaBw-8 Watch.]] Only surpassed in its day by the ones from [[KillerApp CD-ROM based]] ''Star Wars: VideoGame/RebelAssault''.
