The aptly named Emotional Multimedia Ride blog has posted classic reviews of both WC1 and WC2. It helps that both games are bundled together in a very affordable GOG bundle! The articles are written in a way that highlights their strong points and enduring charm after two and a half decades. There's coverage of the story and then of the factors that make the games continue to stand out today. Another benefit of the GOG pack is that it comes with all four expansion packs, and it's nice to see that even they are included in the profile as well. I briefly write about Wing Commander here at the CIC almost every day, but long (or even medium length) pieces aren't my thing, so I always enjoy seeing other people picking up the pen and sharing their thoughts on the series from a perspective like this. You can find the full reviews here.
Long before X-Wing or TIE Fighter made epic battles in space possible, Origin Systems’ Wing Commander laid the cinematic groundwork for the space combat sim genre.
