Battle Reviews

An enjoyable little mission, which was pretty easy to complete in under 5 minutes (at least on easy) - its worth going for the enemy cargo ships by the way, for some nice extra points!

This was an amazing little skirmish with AI that has teeth. Which is always a welcome sight in my book. The issue is, there is a bug. The T/As attack the freighter carrying Herbert causing the mission to fail. Be alert and send them home before they do so.

Quick and simple mission about disabling a transport in a convoy. GUNs were born for this, so you will not break a sweat at doing it. Fast and easy FCHG point in the basket.

A good standard bugless mission. I just don't appreciate the idea of X-Wings firing advanced missiles at close range :P

Quite frankly, I was disappointed after flying this XvT-Free. Although it has no bugs, the mission itself is very basic and feels like it has been rushed through production (description, readme, in-flight action) as if the author wanted to dedicate as little time to it as possible.
