Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0761512071, Paperback)

Like Quake II, Origin System's Wing Commander Prophecy is a dazzling game with breathtaking graphics. The action in this space-combat game is pretty impressive as well, but it can present the novice star pilot with some challenging dogfights right off the bat--and they only get harder. Prima's book recognizes this fact, and after a brief (but very complete) history of the Wing Commander universe, jumps right into a discussion of the pilots you'll fly with in the game and the dogfight tactics you'll need to survive. In fact, the book focuses primarily on the nuts and bolts of star fighter combat, rather than the story of the game. (Specific mission descriptions don't start until page 150.) This is a good thing, since Wing Commander Prophecy places a higher emphasis on your performance in the cockpit than previous Wing Commander games. Throughout the book, you'll find concept art from the game's development and a load of statistics covering the capabilities of every pilot, ship, and weapon in the game.
