Shot97 has put together an absolutely massive review of Wing Commander for Amiga systems. He covers every inch from top to bottom. Shot goes over what the game meant to him and then proceeds to cover the backstory, the impact of the characters, the depth of the manual, the significance of the Kilrathi, and that's just getting started. Everything is accompanied by relevant video/screenshots and commentary. He's typed up the core experience here, but you can watch the full story in an hourlong YouTube video below.
Wing Commander came out in 1992 for the Amiga, a couple years after the original DOS version, yet it blew me away just as much as it did anyone playing it in DOS. I adore this game, and I adore this version in particular.
