World of Space Ships has posted a new chapter on their retrospective road to Star Citizen. The focus this time is Wing Commander Privateer. The most significant link between the two may be Erin Roberts who is also driving the story portions of Star Citizen now as well. WoSS isn't a fan of Priv's space combat engine, but they don't specifically describe what hasn't aged well. They do like the overall blend of open universe and storyline missions, and the author acknowledges that this is a good template to expect for the future. Strike Commander also gets a nod for its similarities and groundbreaking place as an Origin sim. Towards the end they dock Privateer 2 some points for not being helmed by Chris Roberts, but they leave out the part where it too was actually produced by his brother Erin in the UK - a model good enough to duplicate with Star Citizen!
