This game is perfect in technical and gameplay terms. If you're fan of Wing Commander universe, you're at home again. Looks like one of my dreams came true - new Wing Commander on polished FS2 engine.
Go and play it, don't waste and more time reading this review :)
Highest Rated (4 agree) 10/10
Wing Commander Saga is probably one of the most polished indie releases I have ever seen. I have only played through about half of the campaign(I think) but so far it has had a large variety in the mission structure with very solid combat mechanics. The characters and voice work can be spotty at times but overall it is superb especially considering the sheer volume included in the game.
Any Wing Commander or Space combat sim fan would be silly to miss out on such an amazing free release.
