...Wing Commander featured a dynamic campaign that changed the character based on your performance, and it was not at all certain it ended with victory for humanity. In fact, it could be pretty bad, but it did not mean "game over". Instead, you will experience a different (and much more depressing) story and very different missions.
But this was not the only area where the Wing Commander was ahead of its time. It was able to also boast intense, animated sequences and an incredible atmosphere outside of missions, thanks to dialogue with other pilots (a bit like we have between missions in Starcraft II) and brilliant briefing-sekvnenser.
So what are you waiting for? Carrier Tiger's Claw has room for a new pilot, and humanity needs you.
