Since I had already played the game two or three times, I kept thinking of the things that had changed and what was different. The plot unfolded in much the same way as the game but filled in many gaps that would make a video game boring. Of course this works the other way and leaves out a few details.
The new look at Admrial Tolwyn shed a different light on his character. The game designers never had time to explain his character the way an author could. Thus I liked the book Tolwyn better than the game Tolwyn.
I wish as much could be said for Col. Blair. The game showed him as a war hero who was itching to get back to life as a pilot. The book showed him as an old, fat man with a drinking problem who oftem questioned himself.
Overall I enjoyed reading the book cover to cover and have suggested it to other Wing Commander fans.
