Wing Commander is back! The mythical series that spawned from Origin Systems in 1990 for critical acclaim received a few sequels but has since been forgotten by Electronic Arts, who holds the rights. In 2002, a small group of fans decided to create Wing Commander Saga as a total conversion mod for Freespace 2. In 2012, Wing Commander Saga: The Darkest Dawn was released as a freeware PC game.
And what an amazing work this is! Far from being a simple by-the-numbers game, this can easily be considered a new episode in the series, featuring everything that made Wing Commander famous – rich sequences with hours of fully-voiced dialogs, captivating visuals reminiscent of the series and lots of text and briefings to introduce us to the new threat from the Kilrathi. Characters are 3D models, not real actors as Wing Commander is also known for, but the work is of great quality.
Just like the previous titles, this is a game that requires some patience to fully enjoy. The commands are many and not particularly intuitive at the beginning, so gamers have to check the help options and discover how to control the ship as they need to. Those who persevere will have a sci-fi opera for many, many hours, with a campaign that offers over 50 missions and plenty of ships to choose from. There are many graphical options to accommodate every player and the hefty download (over 3 GB) is not a problem for players nowadays.
