The Video Game Critic
Still, Wing Commander 3 is enjoyable once you finally get comfortable with the controls. On the downside, the game crashed on me once (memory allocation error), and the video clips become a bit monotonous after a while ("That's some pretty slick flying sir!"). It clearly had to be shoehorned onto the 3DO, but Wing Commander III is an engaging science fiction epic that's a real pleasure to experience.
Video Games & Computer Entertainment
All in all, the story and special effects are breathtaking and the gameplay addictive. Wing Commander III is absolutely a must-play.

Vor allem Freunde des interaktiven Films werden ihre helle Freude haben, denn meines Erachtens sind die Digi-Sequenzen, von denen einige durch Wahlicons eine Verzweigung der Handlung ermöglichen, von der optischen Qualität höher als manch dahergelaufenes Interaktiv-Spiel. (…) Wer zudem noch ein originell innovatives Spielsystem erwartet, wird aber jäh enttäuscht. In den knapp 50 Missionen macht Ihr nichts anderes als im leeren Weltraum auf böse Kilrathis zu schießen. Und ohne Flight-Stick wird die Ballerei zur Tortur. Die vielen Funktionen wie Kommunikation, Lock-On oder Waffenwechseln können nur über Tastenkombinationen angewählt werden, woran man sich erst gewöhnen muß. Wem das nicht stört, kann sich ruhig das Teil schnappen. Und überhaupt, für mich als WC-Fan steht schon einmal fest: WC 3 ist eines der besten Spiele das es fürs 3DO zu kaufen gibt!
CD Player
Im Vergleich zwischen 3DO- und PC-Version gebe ich letzterer den Vorzug: Schnellere Ladezeiten hin, schönere Videos her — am Ende zählen für mich die Gefechte im All, und die sind bei der PC-Variante grafisch detaillierter. Wohlgemerkt, um in den Genuß der vollen Super-VGA-Pracht zu kommen, benötigen Sie einen Pentium 90 mit 16 MByte RAM.

In my opinion, Wing Commander III: Heart of the Tiger is the best of the series, incorporating an epic galactic war and a storyline worthy of a movie. The action is fast and furious and requires a bit of thinking as well.

Wing Commander 3 is a good game for the PC. As a 3DO game, it's just as good. The graphics are awesome and the full-motion video is the crispest, cleanest I have ever seen. I know that FMV can just go flush itself, but it's quite entertaining in WC3 because of the complex story. The interface is very simple and a novice flight player can really get into it. If only the flight steering wasn't so sensitive, dog fighting would have been less of a headache. A good sci-fi game anyway.
