Summary

Worthy successor, improved in almost every way, but STILL no multi-play

The Good

Better plot, better graphics, improved game play (introduction of bombers and torpedoes makes for a big challenge), better special effects, better camera angle (no more talking heads!), plenty of action

The Bad

Still no multiplayer, the plot is rather mundane (the typical traitor-in-your-midst plot), some overly melodramatic moments (Spirit's Kamikaze, for instance)

The Bottom Line

Wing Commander 2 is basically bigger and better Wing Commander with most of the faults corrected, but still no multiplayer. The new challenge of torpedo attack is quite interesting, but the rest of the game is about the same, just faster and tougher than before.
