Taking a look back at the 1990 space combat game that redefined the genre, Wing Commander! Getting it to run correctly may be a tough nut to crack, but it’s worth it to play this Origin classic.

The game was a marked departure from the standard formula, bringing space combat to a level approaching the Star Wars films. Set in the year 2654 and characterized by Chris Roberts as “World War II in space,” it features a multinational cast of pilots from the “Terran Confederation” flying missions against the predatory, aggressive Kilrathi, a feline warrior race (heavily inspired by the Kzinti of Larry Niven’s Known Space universe)
