Did You Know?


Was the very first space simulation computer game to feature branching storylines (the gamer's choices could affect the plot for better or worse) and wingmen that could die at any point in the game instead of when the plot required them to. See more »

Great game for its time!
8 March 2012 | by (Faversham, England) – See all my reviews

Although the screenplay could have been better but at the time I played it got me hooked because of the concept and the story plus the Kilrathi proved to be an interesting alien species! Also the space combat was pretty good, a great game for its time!

Also the missions were pretty good even though the carrier under attack missions would not have had a briefing just a red alert with all pilots rushing to their fighters just like in future games.

Also while slightly stereotypical one of the most interesting characters introduced was Ian 'Hunter' St John who was one of the main characters in the novel 'Freedom Flight' which was the only decent novel I read of the Wing Commander franchise.

Also Kien 'Bossman' Chen was interesting too as was Iceman and Maniac was okay as his character expanded in sequels.
