Stunning collection of sci-fi thrills

For gamers who have never been introduced to the space opera thrills and joys of the Wing Commander series, this is the perfect place to start. The Kilrathi Saga is a compilation pack of the first three games in the franchise, with the first two games completely remastered and with new orchestrations of the music, while several bugs have also been fixed. The games are all reasonably similar, very much akin to Freelancer, in that they are space combat simulations and which throw players into the midst of all-out war between humanity and the cat-like and highly aggressive Kilrathi. Part of the appeal of the series is its ongoing and well-developed storyline, which charts the progress of the war as seen through the eyes of Christopher Blair, a pilot who rises through the ranks as the player progresses through the three games. The other big draw is of course the intense and exciting space combat, which really captures the thrills of movies like Star Wars, with several varied and challenging missions to take part in throughout the different games. If you're looking for an epic set of sci-fi experiences, then this is a tough collection to beat. The stories and characters that you will meet are complex, engrossing and memorable, with wonderful attention to detail, while the action itself is fast and furious. Visual and audio presentation remain highly impressive, with superb ship design, effects and slick cutscenes, so this pack really does offer everything you could ask for. Check out the other games in the series too or Wing Commander: Privateer which is an Elite-style spin-off that offers a more free-form experience.
