YMMV / Wings of Dawn

Wings of Dawn (Game Mod)

  • Best Level Ever: Any mission where you get to fly the Prometheus Frame. Except the second-to-last one where it can have zeroing problems.
  • Crowning Moment of Funny:
    • Misuzu's first contact speech with the Zy.
    • Crystal discovering a certain doujin starring herself and...tentacles.
    • The Orz-like speech that is partially-translated Cordi.
    • Various members of Hard Light Productions cameoing as a squad of extremely weird, but skilled, fighters, set to very silly music.
  • Goddamned Bats: Cordi Soldiers and Warriors. They can literally fly circles around even the Terran Ray Mk. III, and they can glide. Fura'ngle Sweepers and Astrays also fit: they can fire in any direction, regardless of which way they're facing. Get caught between three or four and watch how quickly you die.
  • Good Bad Bugs: In the final "outro" sequence, ships from the various factions all jump out on screen, and some do a strange tumble as they enter their warps. This was not intended, but it does look very funny, and many feel that it fits well with the feel of the scene.
  • Les Yay: Misuzu hugs Crystal during a debriefing... then goes on to comment on how the Cyrvan's breasts feel.
  • Shipping:
    • Misuzu x Crystal (among others), much to the dismay of the campaign's creator.
    • Cargo Ship: Dawn x Infi.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks!: Missiles behave somewhat differently than in the original FreeSpace, leading some players to label them as useless. Other players insist that they're simply not using them properly.
