This game is tops. It was all I could do to drag myself away from the screen and open the packaging on the next game for review. But never fear, I have not wiped it from my hard disk.

Keine Frage, für mich ist Prophecy immer noch das beste Weltraumspiel. Schon beeindruckend, wie gut Schiffe und Effekte auch über ein Jahr nach Erscheinen des Originals noch aussehen. Der »Mittendrin-Effekt« kommt im Schlachtgetümmel besonders gut rüber, egal ob in den Standard- oder den Extraeinsätzen. Sie sollten sich aber fragen, ob Ihnen die mäßig originellen Zusatzmissionen tatsächlich einen Aufpreis von 40 Mark wert sind; sonst sind Sie mit der Budget-Version von Prophecy besser bedient.
There is some added value in the SECRET OPS package. Instead of sandwiching in video, the package uses the game’s graphic engine to provide new storyline vignettes. Your ships are fitted with new, rapid-firing weapons—you’ll need them in the packed arenas in Strike Ops. Earlier WING COMMANDER spaceships make encores, but you can’t piloted them. Strike Ops adds little that PROPHECY didn’t already beat into the ground. I’d recommend WC:P GOLD if you missed the original release, but PROPHECY owners won’t find much added value.
Wing Commander Prophecy is a good game, and one of the best of last year. Origin is to be commended as well for releasing the Secret Missions for free over the net. However, they are not to be commended for the type of game it is. It’s shallow in every facet, and doesn’t do the Wing Commander name justice. If you’re looking for the best space combat game, play Descent Freespace. I can’t recommend buying Prophecy Gold; heck I wouldn’t even spend the time downloading it.
