Trivia

Although he receives a credit, the bartender (Jean Pierre Pereat) is basically an extra who has no dialogue, no close ups and very minimal interaction with the other actors. See more »

Goofs

A hand holding Blair's ankle is visible when Prince Thrakhath plunges his claw into him and lifts him up in the air (if the player refuses to beg for the mercy in the cutscene that follows if the player ejects in the final losing endgame mission) See more »

Alternate Versions

The Playstation version of the game replaces two ground attack missions with cut scenes of the fighters running their attacks. In addition after the player drops the Temblor bomb on Kilrah another cutscene shows the fighter's egress before the planet begins to break up. Throughout the PC game there were originally news cast video scenes that hinted to the player various tactical advances on the part of the enemy. Unfortunately these were cut in the end. See more »

A cool game
9 July 1999 | by Bear-88See all my reviews

Wing Commander III is one of the few games that effectively mixes full motion video and real gameplay. The computer drawn sets don't look that great but are far better than the computer animation of the previous games. Over all the live action portions of the game are pretty great for $4-8 million. The gameplay itself is also far better than the previous games and since the HUD is uncluttered I consider it slightly better than WC IV in that regard (the HUD in IV has a huge gunsight). Even though I played it with the graphics turned down on my old 486 I consider it one of my favorite games.
