One of my favorite general gaming websites, Gaming Age, has recently uncovered its old review archive and put a number of classic reviews back online. You can find Wing Commander 4, Prophecy, Prophecy Gold, and each one of the Secret Ops episodes: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, & 7. With scores ranging all the way up to 98%, they definitely give WC its fair shake.
As you can probably tell, I can't heap enough praise on this game. Sure, it has its problems, but all in all Origin have done an exceptional job of recreating the series, while maintaining all the aspects that have made it such an engrossing game in the past. The new cast is likeable, and the entire feel harkens back to the Tiger's Claw in the early 90's. Don't consider this as Wing Commander 5, as it's more of the start of a new era rather than a sequel. There's so much more I'd like to say, but I can't without giving away the great plot, another area Wing Commander has always excelled in.
