Right. What can I write about such an immensely popular game which hasn't already been said. Obviously not much. Also, what should I describe it for - everybody already knows it! Then again, maybe not really everybody. So, a brief introduction.


Wing Commander Academy

I thoroughly enjoyed Wing Commander I and II (WC, WCII), with all of their add-on mission packs. Flying an armed ship around in space blowing up enemy Kilrathi "furball" ships (not that politically correct…) and hearing the digitized voice of them screaming was an absolute rush! WCII followed the tremendous popularity of Wing Commander, and Origin released add-ons for WCII in 1991 and 1992. However, I think Origin wanted to milk WCII and re-used the engine and made Wing Commander Academy.
