Wing Commander features a lot of live action cutscenes. Wing Commander III is a real throwback to the classic DOS period.
Gameplay involves completing missions and destroying enemy craft, Wing commander III abandoned issuing of medals and relies more on cutscenes to drive the story along making much more use of CD technology. Wing Commander III is an early game on CD-ROM.
As the man giving the orders, Blair often gets to choose what ship he will fly, what missiles it will carry, and what wingman (wingmen) he will take with him.
As in Wing Commander, some wingmen can be killed permanently in combat. Blair’s own call sign remained customizable.
