Battle Reviews

I love a good TIE Fighter mission, but this is not the way...

The briefing map was good, the officer questions were a bit thin and the Cloaked Figure could have been removed as it give no real information.
The story of the mission is thin to say the least. Other issues than those mentioned in Genie's review didn't catch my eyes. So this gets a 3 from me.

It's a challenge! There are multiple ways to go about it, believe it or not. You fly in a T/F without shields and you need to destroy X-Wings, A-Wings, Corvettes and a Calamari Cruiser (if you are hunting for the high score). The lack of shields keeps you on your toes the entire fight. It takes time to gun them all down, especially once you destroy all the fighters and it's left down to the Corvettes and the calamari Cruiser. You spend more time evading fire rather than actual gunning down. So, it requires patience. I give it a 3 because at least it is not yet another T/D mission.

Shame on you, Landon. This one has more bugs than flight groups! Invest more than five minutes next time.
