Grand spectacle sur petit écran, Super Wing Commander va particulièrement ravir les passionnés de S.F., de combats spatiaux et, de façon plus générale, les amateurs de bons jeux.

Une fois qu'on y a goûté, difficile d'en décrocher. Du grand spectacle en 3DO.

Nach befriedigenden Nintendo- und Sega-Versionen ruft der 3D-Klassiker "Wing Commander" nach stärkerer Hardware - die beliebten 16-Bit-Konsolen waren nicht schnell genug, um dem PC-Vorbild hinterherzukommen. Origin, Erfinder der Sternensaga und Angehöriger der 3DO-treuen Electronic-Arts-Familie, nutzte die 32-Bit-Hardware der CD-Konsole, um die Handlung aufzupeppen, die Grafik zu verschönern und Sprachausgabe für alle Protagonisten einzubauen. "Super Wing Commander" ist keine sture 1:1-Umsetzung, sondern eine zeitgemäße Neuinszenierung.

Größter Unterschied zu den Computerfassungen ist die Grafik: Diese wurde komplett überarbeitet, die Zwischensequenzen sind deutlich umfangreicher und um Längen eindrucksvoller. Leider hat die Bilderfülle ihren Preis: In den Einsätzen beispielsweise, wird der Spielverlauf empfindlich durch die Nachladezeiten beeinträchtigt. Dies ist besonders ärgerlich, wenn man einen Kilrathi im Fadenkreuz hat. Ein weiteres Manko: Die Steuerung per Pad. Im Gewimmel der Tastendruck- und Knopfkombinationen verhaspeln sich auch erfahrene Piloten ziemlich schnell. Hier lohnt sich die Anschaffung eines zusätzlichen Joysticks.

Now this is what I want! Super Wing Commander is a top-notch flight simulator that anyone and everyone should pick up. One look at those cinema displays and you'll swear you're watching a movie. Once you get into the cockpit, the fun still doesn't stop. The control is superb and the Kilrathi opponents really know their stuff. If you love flight sims, this game will not let you down in any way, shape or form.

Edge
For those of you unfortunate enough not to have played Wing Commander before, you should be prepared to put in a few late nights to get into the game properly. But be warned: once Super Wing Commander gets a grip of your senses, you'll have to prise it off with a crowbar. So far, most 3DO software has been completely unworthy of attention; happily, Super Wing Commander avoids falling into the same category.

Super Wing Commander is a little rough around the edges, but I enjoyed its brand of space combat a lot more than I thought I would.

Fans of the Wing Commander series are probably the only ones who will enjoy this game. Anyone looking for a thrilling fight will find Super Wing Commander to be a tedious disappointment.
