Summary Text




Besides the two manuals, WCIV also includes a quick reference card like it’s previous incarnation. The two-sided card is for the astronomical amount of things you can do with the controller.



  • There are no screenshots for this game yet.



  • There are currently no videos for this game.



  • One of the characters, “Maniac” also uses the call sign “Joker”. Years later, Mark Hamill would go on to voice the DC Comics Joker character in the Batman: The Animated Series.
  • As dumb as it sounds, thanks to 4 CDs, two manuals, the tip card and the ad inserts, Wing Commander IV is one of the ‘heaviest’ games you can own on the PlayStation outside of the Working Design box sets. This thing has some heft to it!
