The prominent European gaming website Eurogamer.net has recently posted its review of Prophecy Advance. Eurogamer gives the game a disappointing rating of 6 out of 10, citing problems with control, gameplay and an over-abundance of text. The positives of the review seem limited to the game's graphics, which, in the reviewer's opinion, Raylight has done a "sterling job" on.
We weren't particularly sure this was a genre that could be pulled off
at all well on the GBA for the very reasons that have been outlined above. Wing
Commander Prophecy is at times a wonderful effort and a tremendous tech demo
that kept us entertained for all of a couple of hours, but that's all it
eventually feels like - a tech demo. As a game, it's woefully shallow and it
left us wanting something more.

Wing Commander Movie Model Rundown
Atherin has been busy recreating nearly every ship in the Wing Commander film using SketchUp.

Hobbes Betrayal Crosses Over Language Barriers
Most people are familiar with the infamous video cuts that were made to fit all of the video on the Wing Commander 3 discs. Helpful sequences such as the TCN news bursts and Hobbes explanation were omitted due to space constraints. Fortunately, these are now available here at the CIC, but for a long time, the main way players could watch the Hobbes scene was to track down a copy of WC3 on the Playstation or 3DO. (2018-05-23)
