Storyline

It is several years after the end of mankind's war against the Kilrathi. Col. Christopher Blair is called back into active duty by the Terran Confederation to help stop acts of terrorism that appear to be taking place against Confed by Border Worlds forces. But it soon becomes clear that the enemy may not be them at all when Blair and several of his friends defect to Border Worlds forces to try to find out who the real culprits are and to prevent the Confederation and the Border Worlds from entering into the chaos of an intergalactic war....

Trivia

Whereas the live action cutscenes for the previous game were shot on video in front of a green screen (all the scenery was computer generated), this game had a higher budget and its cutscenes were shot on film using real sets (although CGI backgrounds are used for some scenes, such as the flight deck scenes). So this time camera actually moves during shots and there's focus pulls and zoom ins/zoom outs. The video resolution is higher and there are more cutscenes, this game came with six CD-ROM discs, the previous game came with four. See more »

Alternate Versions

After destroying or disabling the Lexington, we see a cut scene of Seether and Captain Paulson escaping in a shuttle. On the original PC six disc release we get a close up of Seether cutting Paulson's throat. However, on the Playstation and DVD version we get an alternate take where Paulson's 'execution' takes place just out of view. Also, Seether tells Paulson to "Stop whining" in this alternate take. The original close up take is viewable on the DVD version by accessing the video file directly on the DVD disc. See more »

User Reviews

This is the greatest movie/game out there.
22 February 2003 | by msdixie2000See all my reviews

Wing Commander III was good. But Wing Commander IV takes game playing to a whole other level. It's too bad there are not more games like this out there. They are a lot of fun to watch and play. You get caught up in the story. The acting is superb. Led by Mark Hamill as Colonel Christopher Blair, and Thomas F. Wilson as Maniac. With most of the cast back from Wing Commander III it felt like being with a old friend. It is interactive where you make some of the choses. Sometimes these can lead you down the wrong path or give you a unexpected twist. This game is never boring.
