Battle Reviews

A bit different than most, but I'm not sure if it was more challenging because it had a bunch of different objectives that were not super clear or if I was doing something wrong (I played on easy, to be fair). You do have to watch out for a craft you could easily miss, which I think is pretty cheap sometimes, but it's used pretty well here. I also really liked the boarding dialogue; I always wonder what happens during those operations. Here you get to find out! Worth a fly.

I played on Easy. This mission has some interesting things going on. While you do end up having to kill a capital ship and some starfighters, you also have to keep an eye out for a special fighter that causes stuff to blow up. It's a cool concept.

Nicely done. A bit more interesting than your typical slugfest. A part of a continuing story as well. Overall a very good and enjoyable mission. Sits somewhere between a 4 and a 5 but upmarking it to a 5.

The second episode of this saga is good. Action paced with a little twist will keep player on the edge, since there are a lot of enemies to shoot down and a well-manned Frigate. Additional comment for the last part of the mission. Don't blow the container with explosives or you'll kill the ISD and lose the mission. Look, as the objectives tell you, for T/B Detonator instead.

hint- destroy the rDB VSD before it can escape to hyperspace;p.

Not bad at all, although it was a bit different from the first one which I enjoyed more.
