Wing Commander 3



    The original PC version of Wing Commander 3 may have been one of the best games of its time but was crippled due to its straining system requirements and massive load times. Translation to the Playstation has solved both of these problems but only at great cost to the game's detail. The cinematic scenes are just as acceptable as they were before (although some of the more grim scenes have been cleaned up a bit (Angel's death for one), but the action itself has suffered a fair bit. Missiles are downright "Afterburner" and there is no true cockpit view (the art for the details of the cockpit isn't there), but there is less loading time and PS-X owners not biased by the PC original will probably have a good time.
