Wing Commander III -- Origin

Dr. Otto
A worthy successor to Super Wing Commander and quite possibly the best space combat sim ever created. This game is worth a few days of lost sleep. The missions are many and varied, and are presented with fully texture mapped polygon environments. The control scheme is elaborate but quickly becomes intuitive in about an hour. What sets this game apart is the massive use of FMV segues to effectively create the atmosphere and advance the story of the game (the cast roster is also impressive... look it up on the game box). No serious gamer should be without this one... and with the game's four CDs only costing you $60. The price makes it an even greater value (especially since you don't have to put out for a $1,800-$2,000 Pentium based PC to play anymore).
