Solid Eric noticed that GameSpot has posted their official review of Prophecy Advance. After everything balances it comes out similar to IGN's review with a solid 7.4, but it's interesting to note they have opposite opinions on aspects such as sound effects and music. To each their own. As usual, graphics and fun factor receive the highest ratings. Sound brings it down a little. Since GameSpot's subscription service works differently than IGN, you can view the entire review here now. Don't forget that GameSpot is also one of the places where you can rate the game yourself as well. Right now reader reviews give it an average of 8.2 We can easily influence that. It's also worth noting that Prophecy Advance currently is GameSpot's second most popular GBA game right now, beating out Wario Ware, Advance Wars 2, Donkey Kong Country and the new Golden Sun.
Wing Commander: Prophecy is a triumph on the Game Boy Advance, but it's not without its flaws. Given a bit more time to tweak the controls and further polish the graphics, Destination Software could have had a groundbreaking work on its hands. Instead, Prophecy is just a solid space combat game that will appeal to anyone looking for the likes of Wing Commander or Colony Wars on a handheld.

Spanish Special Operations are Extra Special
After seeing the Spanish WC2 that Christian Klein recently acquired, the next natural question was whether DROSoft had also localized the Special Operations. The answer is yes, and it comes in an awesome double pack just like the Spanish Secret Missions! Both are in the same box with the game summaries translated side-by-side on the rear of the packaging.
