This is more than just a flight sim - it not only follows a script, but the story is different depending on how well you fly as well. All your wing men talk to you, and you even get to attend their funerals if they don't make it through a mission.
With 40 increasingly tough missions, Wing Commander promises to challenge hardened video jet vets. Wing Commander's not just a simulation, it's an adventure. Don't forget to put the Kilrathi cat out.
Nevertheless, right after the original, the Sega CD port is probably the best version of the original Wing Commander out there. The premise of the game is excellent in all installments, but this one also sports a fantastic sound with great extra speech (although at times a bit over the top), some good looks, and decent gameplay – as long as there aren't too many objects on screen. Unfortunately the huge drop in the frame rate due to technical limitations of the console makes the game a bit hard to bear, especially in later stages. Otherwise it would have been a great port. As it is, it is only a rather good one.
