Late to the Party: Wing Commander 2

 We take a peek at a space action classic!


I finally got around to putting together another Late to the Party review. This time we’re looking at one of my favorite games: Wing Commander II. It just recently became available at Good Old Games and while it’s definitely an oldie and carries some elderly baggage, it’s still a gem and well worth a try.

To help a few of you along with that we’ve acquired, courtesy of Good Old Games, a few voucher codes for their Wing Commander 1+2 pack. I’m not just handing them out though. You need to watch the video and leave a comment below to qualify! Anyone trying to troll won’t have much luck I’m afraid so just don’t!

    Nice video review! The edits had me laughing through the whole thing. “Wing Commander: Prophecy doesn’t count.” Chortle.
    I played the Wing Commander games when they were first released and I’ve listed the franchise as one of my favorites ever since. After completing the campaign, I usually installed a cheat mod to enable near imperviousness. What followed were many, many hours of demolition derby in spaaaaaaaaaace! Didn’t quite work on the capital ships, though, if I remember correctly. Not that much else worked on the capital ships other than luck. Thanks for reminding me of the capital ship torpedo runs. I agree with everything said about them. But it was still fun, somehow.

      Thank you both for your comments and compliments.

      And I’m glad I’m not the only one who raged over the capital ships. 🙂
