Trivia

The Terran Confederation military is divided into three branches: Navy (starship crew), Space Force (most of the pilots) and Marines. Officers are allowed to transfer between branches, thus explaining Christopher Blair's new rank of Commodore (before, he was a Space Force Colonel). See more »

brilliant flight simulator
26 February 2006 | by chrichtonsworldSee 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.
