I wrote the piece for PCXL and I think that I inappropriately gave it the Wing Commander title.
BTW I saw the game in action twice, and hands-down it is the best looking game I have ever seen. The in-game were as pretty as most CG that you see today. And the ships were beyond anything I imagined possible. When I do play the game, I will probably spend most of my time just looking around out the scenery..it's magnificent.
Whether or not it still looks so groundbreaking when it hits stores two years from now is a question we will have to wait to answer.
