Greetings! And welcome to LGR Quickies: Reinvigorated. And, yes, this is a series that I attempted to do several years ago. And you may or may not remember it.

LGR – Descent To Undermountain – DOS PC Game Review

[typing] Now before we get to talking about today’s game itself, it’d be a good idea to get a little bit of context to understand the significance of what it is that I am actually reviewing.

LGR – Wing Commander – DOS PC Game Review

This is one of those legends of computer gaming that set the standard for an entire subgenre, that being spaceship combat simulation. Sure, there were plenty of space games and combat flight sims prior to this, from Starflight’s cosmic exploration and trading to Microprose’s real-world air combat excursions.
