    Vance caught our recent Sci Fi Universe's "Making of Wing Commander 3" article post and was able to dig up the sequel. He was a subscriber ten years ago and scanned the July 1995 issue with Wing Commander 3's full review. The game received a 91% overall score. It actually lost a few points on the story, but I guess they had to balance it somehow. He also found an article from a later issue that had some insight into Wing Commander 4's production and the series' role in general science fiction.

    If you want to recapture the magic of playing WC3 on a 486, just try firing it up in DOSBox with a modern computer running at less than 2 GHz. Long load times and jumpy controls are possible once again.
