Trivia:
When the player selects wingmen on the computer terminal, the ones who aren't part of the main cast are members of the game development team (their photos and names are used). Other things in the Wing Commander series are also named after the game developers, such as fighter manufacturers (Douglas Aerospace and McCall Industries) and the 'Shelton slide' (a flying maneuver).See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: Maniac and Vagabond don't wear any medal ribbons on their Confed uniforms, when in the previous game they did. Yet Blair still does, the same amount as he had before (3). Eisen and Tolwyn also have medals, each a slightly higher amount than they did before.See more »
Quotes:
Catscratch:Attacking that convoy... is this the way wars start?
Blair:Let me tell you something, Catscratch. Wars are like bombs. The fuse gets lit before you actually hear the bang and sometimes the fuse can be pretty long.

A True Masterpiece, 7 July 1999
Author: Bekenn from USA

There is no perfect game, but this one comes about as close as possible.

Intense, amazing, and -- most importantly -- NEW, the storyline for this game is the best I've seen for ANY game, regardless of genre. I knew that the video for this game would look much better than in WC3 when I got it, but I had no idea what the plot was, and the only assurance I had that it would be even mildly interesting is the traditional WC high quality that doesn't fail here.

Forget the senselessly stupid WC "movie" that came out in theaters a few months ago; this is what should have been put on the screen. This had a convincing, natural-sounding script, top-notch acting, and great EFX to boot. Unlike a lot of games, this one made you care about the characters. This is, to date, the only game I've played that kept me out of bed for more than two days straight just to play "one more mission".

There is, however, one failing that this game does have, one flaw: the gameplay. The flight engine is recycled from WC3, with enhanced AI. I would have preferred that this game be in development for another year if only that would give it the better flight engine, but I suppose you have to live with what you can get.

Still, this is a minor quibble, and not enough to pull the game away from a 10 rating in my book.
