Quotes

Zero: What was it like?
Casey: What was what like?
Zero: Being the Iceman's son. You must have had a free ride straight through to the academy.
Casey: I never had a free ride, not to the academy, not anywhere.
Zero: Get off it, Casey, your old man was a great war hero.
Casey: Yeah, he was a hero all right, one of the most decorated pilots of the Confederation, so good they named a flight maneuver after him. Only problem is, he died when I was just a kid. I think my mother got his last medal when I was in diapers. No, having a hero ...

An insult to the Wing commander Series
16 January 2000 | by WallMecSee all my reviews

I first got started on wing commander when I played part 4 The Price of Freedom and what an excellent games it was. Then hoping wing commander 5 would continue this legacy I was bitterly disappointed.

Part 5 has a very thin plot to say the least. They turned the hero of the previous wing commanders into an old coot and the acting is just damn atrocious which was a suprise because Mark Hamil's performance in part 4 was pretty solid. I guess he didnt try in this one because the plot was so stupid.

Shame on the origin team for release this poor excuse for a game and a movie, I feel it was money down the drain.
