Wing Commander is a space combat shooter that kept me coming back for more!!

I can remember running home, slinging my bag on my bed and just playing for hours

Wing Commander is a space combat game that paved the way in space shooter games and larger publishers to produce games such as the X-Wing series.

In the game there is a war between the you and the aliens which i remember looked like cats!!  You are a rookie pilot on the mothership ship and i watched the cinematic intros and hummed along to a soundtrack which provided a science fiction movie feel.

The campaign mode consists of a story that begins with  you in control of a small powered craft. Continued success will lead to the unlocking of better equipment and guns! Failure will lead to missions which were stupidly hard, and myself getting very annoyed!

The game is broken up by adventure game style breaks in the pilot's lounge. You would communicate with other pilots by choosing text-based answers. Missions are launched from the briefing room, with a series of checkpoints to visit and objectives to accomplish.

Mission types offer some variety between patrols, or attacking missions. Missions changed and were varied as the game went along.  All in all - a very good space game that i will always remember playing for hours and hours after school!!
