The British gaming press of the 1990s continues to hammer Wing Commander. It's difficult to call this a "review" so much as an angry rant. The UK edition of PC Gamer "reviewed" Wing Commander IV in March 1996 and didn't have a whole lot of positive things to say. They do mention giving Wing Commander III a high score, its successor does not enjoy a similar fate. They appear to be very upset that they were promised the world and all they got was Wing Commander IV. The reviewer does have a nice word at the end though.
