Fun missions and story-line progression. Normal difficulty is pretty tricky at times with the combination of needing to protect critical cap ships against rocket attack while being hunted by advanced missiles. An interesting way to balance the otherwise very different fighter classes. The missions are unfortunately quite repetitive.
The mission is functional, but the waves and waves of craft gets old pretty fast.
It's a battle built around the Venator patch, which is not a bad concept; it's a well done patch! Model is nice, ship may not be perfectly balanced though. Unfortunately, I think the difficulty is out of whack in some spots (and this is disregarding anything on Hard, which can be as impossible as the creator would like it to be and will not get a peep out of me in complaint), and there's too much sameness going on in the battle. While the missions do have other goals and things going on, they all essentially come down to 1) fight off the Z-95 flight that's trying to kill you, and 2) stop the R-41 bombers attempting to kill ships that will cause the mission to fail. Same flights, same names, same patterns.
Pretty standard battle. Nothing exiting to report.
Very good battle. As often with Dempsey's this has plenty of advanced missiles shoveled at you, and the missions are hard and demanding. Numerous waves of enemy fighters and automated missile launchers on every capital ship will make your life a never-ending nightmare. But this is far from detrimental to the gaming experience. It pushes the player to polish tactics and hone skills. Additionally, the Venator is just gorgeous. The combination of the VEN and the Naval Yard made my day. Worth a try, only if your want something of a real challenge. RtF unsuitable.
In Mission 3, the Venator continues to launch enemy starfighters after being captured
