The new issue of Computer Gaming World (December, 1998)'s cover article, Holiday Hot 100, features Wing Commander Prophecy Gold as the #5 Space Sim for this year. Gold trails I-War, Heavy Gear II, Starsiege and Descent Freespace... read their comments on Gold below.
The age-old space-sim series makes this list again. This title was No.1 on last year's list, and it's still a great WING COMMANDER game. It features gameplay reminiscent of earlier WING COMMANDER games, has less annoying FMV, and sports some of the most beautiful graphics ever seen in a space sim. By the time you read this the GOLD EDITION, which includes both the original release and SECRET OPS (the stand-alone expansion pack that was released on the Internet), will be available in stores. This complete packages is a good pick for WING COMMANDER fans.
