Trivia:
Two of the testifiers in the end sequence are minor characters from the game. The man who says "You saw the results," was the doctor from Telemon, and the man who says "The honorable Admiral Towlyn" is the ex-pilot you meet in the bar at the beginning.See more »
Goofs:
Miscellaneous: Once again, as in the previous game, Paladin is listed in the credits as "Maj. James 'Paladin' Taggart" (Maj. means Major). He was only a Major in the first game, in Wing Commander II he is a Colonel, in Wing Commander III he is a General, and in this game he is retired from the military and is now a Senator.See more »
Quotes:
Admiral Tolwyn:[giving a speech to members of the secret Black Lance force] The strong shall survive! The primary universal law. The species that is weak faces extinction. You know, not so very long ago, our species faced extinction. Now the truth is, our victory over the Kilrathi was not a clear verdict of our superiority, it was a fluke. A temporary perchase of time. We will some day face an enemy far worse than the Kilrathi and it is our duty to prepare, to remain strong and to remain vigilant.See more »

Greatness only gets better!!, 1 September 2002
Author: Eric from Modesto, CA, USA

Wing Commander III: Heart Of The Tiger was quite a new and unique video gaming experience. It combined the graphics and playability of a video game with the sensibilities, style, drama, and live-action performers of any Hollywood movie. And, guess what? It worked, to great effect! So, how do you improve upon perfection itself? Simple. You make everything bigger, better, and, in the case of the live-action elements, more realistic and film-like! First off, let's talk about the live-action. WC3's live-action scenes simply had the actors and actresses filmed against green-screen. The CGI-created sets were added later on in post-production. Because of this process, the film camera had to be locked down to the studio floor all of the time. In other words, the live-action scenes had no camera-movements whatsoever. In Wing Commander IV: The Price Of Freedom, director Chris Roberts has taken care of both of these minor problems by fully utilizing real, and in some cases impressive, sets this time. He sure uses his newfound camera-movements to great effect, too. He zooms in and out on his actors, he pans all around his sets in some shots, he follows his actors around the sets using hand-held cameras. He even threw in a few dolly and crane shots just for fun. He also knows a good thing when he sees it, too, because he managed to bring back almost all of the actors who were in WC3, including Mark Hamill, Thomas F. Wilson, Malcolm McDowell, and the great John Rhys-Davies. If you enjoyed Wing Commander III, then chances are you'll enjoy Wing Commander IV just as well, or maybe even more! It is currently available for both PC and PlayStation. I personally would recommend the PlayStation version, since the graphics and live-action video are much more cleaner and clearer than the PC version. Buy this game, and have fun! That's an order, Colonel!
