Gamespot UK has put up their review of Starlancer, and to our surprise they actually credit Warthog. I guess this shows there really is a first time for everything. Like so many other articles, it opens with calling Starlancer an "heir to Wing Commander" (let's not get carried away here). And at the end there's this interesting bit:
I suppose If you had to level one criticism at Starlancer, it would be that it's a pretty linear kind of experience, (although the storyline does branch in several places depending on your performance) but that's would be a pretty harsh judgement since linear progression has always been the nature of the space combat beast.
And anyone who's familiar with the Wing Commander series knows that isn't true.
