5.0 out of 5 stars Killin' Cats cool, but meant for slower machine December 4, 2002
Wing Commander is probably one of the coolest sci-fi flight sims out there. Episode III is largely an interactive movie, but the flying still rocks. My problem is that I'm running it on a 333MHz machine, which is a little too fast (I have the detail all the way up, and my reflexes STILL can't keep up). So it might be good to try it on something a little slower.
The story line is pretty good so far (I haven't finished the game yet). Having Mark Hamill play the lead role is pretty cool; it's kind of like being Luke Skywalker. And I love how human everything is -- some flight sims, your wingman is some nameless dude that ocassionally says some stock thing. Here, your wingmen have personalities (they each have their own little sayings, i.e. Maniac's "It's party time!"), fighting styles, even differences in how brave/cocky they are. And what's more, wingmen actually matter; I find that even when I'm in a mighty Excalibur, if a bunch of light enemy fighters gang up on me, I'm space dust. The missions also start out simple, and get more and more challenging as you go. Fortunate; I hate it when a game's too easy. But this one passes.
All in all, this is a cool game, albeit a little old. I think it's completely worth the buy. Check it out.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good game...even with Mark Hamill in it! February 25, 2002
This game is pretty neat. I haven't gotten very far in the game yet, but what i have played so far i have enjoyed. The dialogue is corny at times but funny also. But with Mark Hamill you have to expect that i guess. Don't get me wrong i love star wars just as much as the next person and i do like Mark Hamill, but he can be pretty cheesy at times. Also starring in this game is Tom Wilson, who played as Biff in Back to the Future. Overall, the graphics are very good for 32 bit and you will have a fun time playing it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Admittedly, Not for Everyone.... September 1, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The best way to describe this game is to call it an Interactive Movie. You, as a single player are put in the lead roll but this is where it differs from all other games out there. As the movie unfolds (the lead character is played by Mark Hamill aka Luke Skywalker) Co. Blair (Hamill) is put to the test and must fly space missions against the enemy (Kilrathi - a cross between a lion and a Wookie).

Although this game is obviously dated, it is still a rare treat because games like this are not made anymore. To explain why that is, just check out what it cost to make Wing Commander IV and you'll quickly understand. (W.C.IV was the most expensive game ever created for a gaming system) and the reason for that is because they used live actors to play the rolls. That's what makes it an interactive movie. Cool huh.

Once you learn the controls and get used to them for the space missions, the game becomes quite enjoyable and is even played over again numerous times because based on which paths you take, the game unfolds differently each time. In other words, the actors filmed different scenes based on decisions that you the player take. So if you go left, you'll see the movie unfold one way, or if you turn right, you'll see the movie unfold in another way. And so on and so forth.

Plus once you discover where the invincible button is, the game becomes a real hoot because you can go through it without having your character die off. Cheating? Who said cheating? It's improvising, adapting....

The only draw back to this game is it probably won't appeal to children. It moves too slow for them because don't forget as you play, the movie unfolds, you fly a mission and the movie unfolds more. It's still worth it just for the uniqueness of the game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh, the memories! December 8, 2012
Verified Purchase
I used to play Wing Commander III with a friend of mine in high school, on his 3DO. I decided to get a copy for my PS3 and see how it stood up! The cut scenes may be dated, but the gameplay is still what I remembered! Such an innovative game for its time!

May have some trouble on the PS3 (PS One games are playable on it, but sometimes have issues). I frequently get crashes on the second disc. Oh well, at least I can enjoy it a little!

4.0 out of 5 stars Movie Game Combo That Works! September 4, 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I played this on PC growing up and now own a copy on PS1 that is even better because it contains a little more stuff. Wing Commander 3 is more like a big movie with lots of choices along the way as you navigate the briefing rooms, air hangars, control rooms, etc. The acting is done very well by lots of people you should recognize from movies and porn! I wish they would have done a sequel in the 2000's with better graphics but overall this a fun game that will keep you wanting to play more! You will love Hobbs!
