Thought I'd piggyback on this post b/c mine is similar. Let's face it, it's hard to find a decent space sim that's in a familiar setting... and the Star Wars franchise has been pretty stingy on their space sims over the past 15 years. I even dusted off Prophecy and X-Wing Alliance over the summer. WC Saga is truly phenomenal. Really. I played WC since I was 12 when it first came out - the whole series is my go-to space sim, which just don't get made with the same sense of fun anymore! I never got to WC3 or WC4, or the privateer series, and I really wish I had. I actually tried out WC3 recently and it's just so old and decrepit (MS-DOS!) that I never got around to finishing it. Stumbled onto this gem a few weeks ago, and it's absolutely amazing. You have really taken WC production to the next level, where Origin couldn't! Technology aside, the amount and quality of the content you all put into this really puts WCP and WCSO to shame! No cutting corners or cheap cop-outs (how many times does WCP play the same cutscenes over and over), and the surprises just keep coming. I started to get the "getting close to the end" feeling, and did a mission count, and I have at least 15 more missions to go. I love the direction you took this in, it has just the right balance of new stuff and old stuff. When I started playing, I figured it was just another fan-mod - you know how they can be! But this definitely holds up to being pro.
And, whoever did the music... five stars!
It's nice to get some true satisfaction from playing a WC game again. Just glad it stayed on line for the 3 years it took me to find it! I've enjoyed every minute. Now I just wish someone would Mod WC3 and WC4 to use 3D graphics, that would be great.
