Battle Reviews

Good copy/paste of the original first battle, with the addition of 'modern' multiplayer options such as ordinance changing (which makes the last two missions super-easy) and a capacity to play with up to two additional pilots.

Some minor scripting/flight command/loadout issues for AI which detract, but otherwise good.

This battle was well designed with a thoughtful plot line that was continuous across all missions of this battle. Points were deducted because of the excessive use of classic starfighters. The Emperor's Hammer has access to much more formidable craft!

I flew this as part of Raise the Flag competition 2021. Overall, the battle seemed straightforward with no major hang-ups. There is not much to say about it. It was fun but the battle did not contain any elements that makes it stand out from nearly every other battle you have ever flown.

I played on Easy. This was a fairly quick set of missions. I enjoyed that a good amount. My biggest gripe is that Mission 2 makes you wait for so long, in start contrast to the rest of the missions. I sat around in Mission 2 for longer than I actually had to fly the mission.

Overall I enjoyed this one, fairly straight forward, not too much time spent between objectives. Mission 2 was the only mission that took some time due to the ship arriving way after everything was killed but otherwise pretty good

Pretty bland mixture of missions in this battle. Nothing crazy hard or exciting. You do some dogfighting, you inspect some ships. The only issue I ran into was that for one mission the objectives didn't match what was required. Either that or it just happened to complete right as something else was unfolding.

A relatively entertaining battle here, where the earlier missions are rather good. The later missions revolve around the destruction of a Mon Cal Cruiser and could really be one battle as opposed to two, but overall it's not bad at all.

This battle I do remember still, after so many years and the Onece Freighters carrying foodstuffs. Always interesting to see these old classic battles so many years later.

A golden classic. Never gets old flying around Outpost D-34. Legendary, this battle has been excellently ported out to the XvT engine, and certainly will live up to expectations of the original TIE campaign. Not to be missed, this one.

Despite not being an original creation, this deserves a 5 just for the sheer amount of work put into porting TIE into XvT and meaning I can enjoy the campaign on a platform that isn't unbearably clunky to use. That said, sometimes I wish XvT had time acceleration...

I have to admit, playing the first Tie Battle in XvT is a lot of fun. Everything is re-created nicely. I do enjoy using the 'random' option, so spawn different craft. Giving this a score of 4 out of 5, considering it is not an original piece of work. Nicely put together tho. No bugs found.

Nothing to complain about, no bugs or anything like that. Good mix of objectives. Like the original Tie Fighter version its a fun battle.

What can I say? I mean, what can I add? This is the first TIE Battle, a classic worth of being among the best battles ever and that's it. Having said that only remains to mention that our SCO crazy Ender the Gender-B... errr (ejem) did an excellent work here porting the battle to XvT engine. Actually, he did much more than just that to overcome the obvious differences between the 2 game engines and now you can play this battle on XvT exactly the same as you did on TIE and with the same difficulty (±) considering XvT engine AI increment. Apart from that he tried to keep everything there, made a special doc with all Mission Hints and Debriefings (XvT lacks both dammit), made a Battle Medal pic using the original one and maybe the best of all: he used the original LA voice acting from TIE!! Definitely, if you don't like this battle you're strange and dangerous and someone should take care of your... freedom... >:)
So in the end, although Ender will never ever get the Golden Tug to the best battle plot nor to originality with this stuff, he did an excellent work, exactly what he was supposed to do and brought us the perfect way for new Trainees to complete their training the best way possible (with true battles and not some silly mission mess) using another game platform and not only TIE. A 5 comes well deserved here.

"Pursue Rebels fleeing from Hoth."

The release of the Emperor's Hammer Shippatch made it possible to make full conversions
of TIE battles for XvT. This conversion was made using more then just "tie2xvt", about every 
aspect except the actual texts was changed to get better results in XvT - however great care 
was taken to retain the same atmosphere as the TIE version had.

This battle happens just after the Battle of Hoth and is Mareek Stele's first campaign.
All official TIE Fighter missions of the first 7 battles are part of the Emperor's Hammer History.
