I've been on and off about the Wing Commander series, and this game is only okay. The cinemas are a lot cleaner than the computer version, and the scaling is a little bit better. The controls are a bit confusing. WC3 is just a glossy version of the same game. The cinematic sequences are cool, but you essentially have the same game over and over. If you enjoy this series and would like to play a stylized version, Wing Commander 3 won't disappoint you.

8.0

Hey, look, another game with big-name Hollywood talent behind it. Wing Commander 3 has got to be the best of the series ever. At a whopping four CDs, it has also got to be the biggest. Why four CDs, you ask? The sheer amount of good, quality full-motion video sucks up too much space. The missions you take part in are overly simplistic at first, which is to be expected, and get downright nasty as you go. If you haven't played WC3, don't miss out.

7.0

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.

8.5

I've been playing the Wing Commander series from the very beginning on the PC and am pleased with the job they did for the 3DO. The video is very clean and possibly some of the best for the system or the PC. The story line is much the same, and the game play is fairly responsive on the 3DO controller. Fans of the series will love this game for its excellent new graphics and video. The control was a bit tough to master, but it is still one of the best flight sims out there.

Game Reviews

The third installment of the popular Wing Commander series will be appearing on the PlayStation. As you probably know, the story is about mankind's struggle against a race of cat-like beings called the Kilrathi.

The wars are carried about in ship combat. The game-play is from inside the cockpit on one of these war machines. What made Wing Commander so popular was the realistic space combat. In addition, Wing Commander 3 has a gripping plot with plenty of full-motion video cinemas that bring the struggles alive. There are multiple endings, depending on your skill. Big-name actors like Mark Hamill (Star Wars) have starring roles in the cinemas.

Wing Commander 3 has realistic texture-mapped ships that scale in and out smoothly. You've never seen space combat this realistic on the PlayStation!
