Quotes

Zero: What was it like?
Casey: What was what like?
Zero: Being the Iceman's son. You must have had a free ride straight through to the academy.
Casey: I never had a free ride, not to the academy, not anywhere.
Zero: Get off it, Casey, your old man was a great war hero.
Casey: Yeah, he was a hero all right, one of the most decorated pilots of the Confederation, so good they named a flight maneuver after him. Only problem is, he died when I was just a kid. I think my mother got his last medal when I was in diapers. No, having a hero ...

brilliant flight simulator
26 February 2006 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Comparing to the earlier titles,this game is less about the story,more about the combat. Even so,the movie sequences are nicely done. It is wrong to call this game an interactive movie,because you don't have much of a choice, the outcome if you win is always the same. Cool ending though! Christopher Blair (Mark Hamill)passes up the torch to Casey (Iceman's kid)! The acting is very underrated and much better than the acting done in Wing Commander:The Movie! If you loved Top Gun,then you will enjoy this one as well. This game kicks ass when it comes to flying your ships and taking out the enemy. The special effects for a game this old are out of this world.If you get a chance to play this game,you won't be sorry.
