Battle Reviews

CM Jagged Fell III



I am torn, I think this is the best custom audio mission I have heard so far as it has a full voice cast. On the other hand, I dislike the VERY tight inspection window for the shuttle, especially after the long intro.

COL Phalk Sturm



The plotline was well made and hilarious. The mission develops in a pretty realistic way and you feel sorry for the old bag of bones flying another routine assignment before a well deserved retirement. Point is that getting to the ATR in time is really hard. Word of advice, inspect the TRNs first, then let the FRTs approach closer to the M/FRG Phoenix, but not too much or they will hyper out eventually, otherwise it was impossible to me to reach the ATR. Smelling its fumes while it was jumping out was somehow frustrating. A small correction there and the mission is would turn into an original and fun to fly, inspect-disable-protect-dogfight kind of mission. Like this, it's quite frustrating.

How are we supposed to complete this in this craft when you can't open the S-Foils?

Seriously, its too hard to reach the ATR. I can almost smell it but every time it jumps out. I only need like one more second. Give it an extra two seconds TACcy
