I'll just bust out my 3DO and play it on that.

Wing Commander f***ing ruled.

Great game. Wish they'd done Privateer 2 though.


....But Privateer 2 is terrible.

Yeah. Keep on smoking that crack. Privateer and Privateer 2 are two of the best of the genre even before you factor in Clive Owen and John ****ing Hurt.

Your problem is you've spent your whole life thinking there are rules. There aren't. We used to be gorillas.

Is it worth the 1.8gb download?

Or is it just another sorta ok FMV game from the 90's?

Wonder how many of those "I will never use Origin" people are downloading this right now.


I'm tempted to, but it just isn't worth more bloat on my system.

I'm not a huge fan of EA but "bloat" isn't exactly a word I'd apply to Origin, unless you mean "having to run a client just to play one game"

It might be like the Sims 2... download it with Origin, and then you never need Origin after that to run the game. Has anyone tried that yet?

Privateer and Righteous Fire are great. Privateer 2 is absolute dreck, a relic from an age where Origin thought every Wing Commander game had to be a movie
