It would have to be a 16MHz 286, and you must play in VGA(*) (really
MCGA) mode. But with those conditions met, yes, the original Wing
Commander is playable. 12Mhz is a hair too slow to be enjoyable.
(*) Original Wing Commander supported EGA and Tandy 16-color graphics.
However, the graphics speed in these modes, even though they require
half the memory, is so slow that the game is unplayable due to the
bitwide manipulation needed.
