The last Starfighter game was made in the 80s, as a movie game to complement the movie with the same name.

Star Raiders 2 , doesnt have the intro. And plays a little bit difrent.

Also , Star Raiders 2 was officially released by Atari, while The LAst Starfighter was NOT released caused by copyright problems about the movie etc....
