Battle Reviews




I have no idea what I just did or why I did it, but it was in service to the Empire, and I did it on easy. You're waiting for an ATR to board, so be smart and don't bonk in to it like I did on my first try. Your squadmates aren't much better - one of them took some ordinance to the cockpit when I fired it off. Not sure why, maybe it's the close proximity of things in this mission, just try to spread out a bit maybe.

I played on Easy. I found this mission to be a bit strange. I don't really understand the core concept of the mission, but it's very possible I missed it. At the end of the day, things take an unexpected turn and you should be prepared for that.

AD Phoenix Berkana



A clever little mission this one. You need to be on your toes for the unexpected twists and an effective use of wingmen commands can ultimately save you a lot of dogfighting.

RA Genie



I liked this mission. Smartly put together and keeping you on your toes in a positive way with engaging and realistic events as they unfold.

COL Phalk Sturm



Good mission about protecting a capture operation while flying a GUN. The plotline is good and will have some twists along the mission, giving extra interest to the game. Well-coordinated and balanced enough to be both challenging but fun to fly, this is the best of the saga. Not like #178 which was an unintelligible hieroglyph of a mission.

LT Blackrage



Not bad, it gets really intense, not that long even on hard. One thing that would make it harder is having the cap ships attack targets, but then they couldnt be so close, which I enjoyed as I got smashed by the vsd when I first played.

HA Frodo March



I liked it up until the TIE Bombers...They just turned me off for some odd reason. However I liked the disabling the ATR idea.
