PC Format on Wing Commander II
PC Format, a UK-based gaming magazine that would go on to have a close relationship with Origin Systems, published their first issue in 1991. Of interest to us, however, is issue 2: the November, 1991 edition of the magazine was absolutely chock full of Wing Commander II. As you can see, Wing Commander II gets a four page review, a picture on the cover and even a letter in their 'Q&A' section. The highlight, however, is the 'cartoon' version of the WC2 intro where the story is punched up with word balloons and new graphics. That 'BOOM' really makes losing the Tiger's Claw sting all the more. Rounding out the collection are two ads, one for a regional retailer stocking the game and the other published by Wing Commander II's European retailer Mindscape.
