Battle Reviews

COL Phalk Sturm



The story is very original and has some twists in the plot, however the difficulty is a bit erratic. Some missions may seem very easy some almost impossible. It could improve it playability if the overall level of difficulty could be revised.

MAJ Landon Cruise



Pretty easy battle, on EASY settings. Settings higher will not let you complete.

I feel like I'm being a little harsh, but I'll justify that. The first thing I want to convey is the whole time travel thing is overused. Every mission creator is guilty of having either tried it or thought about it, since it can potentially lead to an amazing battle... But sometimes creators simply tend to rush things, make the missions just not fun, because their plotline is so solid that they think they don't need something new and exciting. This is the case for this battle, as you are submerged into a crisis with an informant from the future. However, the biggest plot twist is in mission 5, when you accidently pull rebels out of hyperspace with your INT. You get to partake in very basic capture operations, demining, and who could forget the mandatory eternal last mission, which if you actually have the stamina and will to fly without cheats on Hard, you are simply met with a thundering wave of "*BEEP BEEP* MISSILE WARNING KEY TO TARGET!?" Every ...about 5 seconds. Not my idea of fun, or of a challenge...Which leads me to judge that this battle's difficulties weren't properly gauged, or tested (see bug report if it's still there). In one mission you're in a GUN vs. an ISD, a TIE Advanced Squadron and a T/I Squadron both with advanced missiles, in the next you have a missile boat with just a CRS with rebel fighter complement and 20 heavy rockets. There is no balance, there is no fun, this is simply filler for the mission compendium, classic EH TIE TC battle, which is a nice way of saying it's bland and unoriginal.

This has also happened to me on hard. Mission 2 cannot be completed, because there are (in hard) 3 objectives to destroy all mines, and only one is completable.

HA Frodo March


I'd just like to double what Dax said, happened to me too on medium, not on easy. I didnt try hard.

GN Dax Corrin


Battle 2 100% of mine group HC-23M must be destroyed. 2 objectives identical, only one is completeable. I destroy all mines, yet 1 objective to destroy the same mine group exists, preventing mission completion
