Aargh! I should know this. There''s four discs for Wing Commander III. I think it''s six for WC IV. Or is it seven? Blast! Well, at least this post will keep your question floating on top for a while longer.
Waist of money? Wing Commander 4 is the best game of all time. I have beaten that game at least 30 times! There is so much interaction and I even have an old website on it. There is 6 Cds for wing commander 4. I feel sorry for you if you lost the last one, that one is the best, your in court and you have to answer lots of questions, and if you answer them wrong than you get put in jail and Confed goes to war with the Border Worlds. If you answer right you can get promoted, Tolwin dies and there is peace again. Also check out the latest Wing Commander game, Secret Ops. Its free. I know that I am blabbing on but I love that game.
