PC Guide Reviews Wing Commander Prophecy Update ID

We conclude our series of old Prophecy reviews on another high note with this one-pager from the Spring 1998 issue of PC Guide. The reviewer deems Prophecy the "best Wing Commander yet" and is endeared by the variety of flyable craft and the "stunningly beautiful" 3D-accelerated graphics. Negatives are lack of variety in the missions and too little focus on game tactics. Overall, Prophecy scores a solid 5 on PC Guide's 6-star rating scale. The game also receives a "best buy" stamp of approval!

Thanks to Pix's Origin Adventures for these great scans! You can find the PC Format, PC Gamer and PC Home reviews in the archives.

Wing Commander Movie Model Rundown

Atherin has been busy recreating nearly every ship in the Wing Commander film using SketchUp. There's really not much missing - we don't see the Kilrathi Concom, Diligent or some of the small background items, but just about all of the other major stuff is there. It's a pretty nice lineup!
