I loved the old wing commander games but the only attempt previous to this so far at redoing it was horrible.
Well, I managed to d/l and install it, but only had 10 minutes to play using a 360 controller. From what I've seen so far it's definitely Wing Commander. The voice acting sounds a little amateurish, but when you consider it's done by a fan team it's really not bad at all. Gameplay seems solid, and very reminiscent of the originals.
I won't post screencaps, but here's a link to a gameplay vid: Wing Commander Saga: Raw Gameplay Footage #1 - YouTube
I found one problem. During my first launch I realized you can rotate your ship 360 degrees around the center axis while sitting in the hangar at a complete standstill. Seems strange, maybe something that was overlooked. All in all though, it felt like playing one of the old games with higher resolution graphics.
I'm going to set aside some time this weekend to dig out my Saitek flight sticks and give it a real play through.
