Battle Reviews

Pretty standard mission, as the other reviews have stated - got a little tricky keeping an eye on some of the Xwings, and Awings to see who was going for the shuttle, but an enjoyable free mission.

Just fighting off some waves auf Gunboats to protect a convoy. Nothing special.

Ok I'll be honest this one took me a few tries to pull off but in the end it's all about shooting straight, moving fast and using missiles along with your lasers and sticking close to the shuttle, overall a very fun battle and pretty straight forward

Straightforward as it gets. Escort an E/S against some Rebels trying to destroy or disable it, until your mothership arrives. Some dogfighting and little else. And it feels a bit overpowered in the T/D against the usual scum in their alphabet fighters. Worth a point for your FCHG trunk but nothing more.

This feels like a standard early milkrun of a mission. You are escorting a shuttle which you need to defend from several waves of fighters. Only the A-Wings try to kill the shuttle so if you focus on these fighters you can get through the mission with out to much stres.

A straightforward mission, one that has you protecting a shuttle from attack whilst also dog fighting for your life. A good and compact mission that does not take too long to complete but seems to have ample ways to get a good scoreline.

The mission's briefing was pretty simple, and the premise was straightforward. In terms of actual combat, it's hectic in a good way at first; It throws a lot at you at the same time and if you're not careful you can be overwhelmed. Not too hard after you clean most of the fighters up though. It gets a 3 and not something higher since while it WAS good, it could've lasted a tad longer and had more action without becoming tedious. Other than that, what it does it does well.

Officer briefing had a nice little back story for the upcoming mission. Though the mission was quite short and seemed to be a bit of luck. One run as soon as the second wave of X-Wings came in they destroyed the E/S that was full hull and half shields within a couple of seconds. The next run was a cakewalk, so probably some weird RNG there.

This battle was extremely buggy and inconsistent. For instance, enemy fighters would spawn in clearly the wrong locations at the wrong time and would throw everything off. I felt like by the time I finally was able to complete it, it was by sheer luck. It was thrilling however and kept you on your toes.

The first of several missions, (John 1, 2 etc). It is actually a storyline as it turns out, so I recommend flying them in sequence, starting of course from John 1. Unfortunately, this mission is nothing special. Brief and uneventful, The second one is definitely better. It is worth flying through the whole sequence of missions.

A well built mission without any obvious bugs. Being close to the E/S when the first wave jumps in helps them attack you instead of the E/S - if it dies, mission fails, so that's a positive thing to happen. Quick and easy to get through

Not a bad free mission overall. You have to dogfight with X-wings and A-wings while both protecting a single shuttle and also surviving. My only gripe is you can get unlucky with one wave happening to kill your shuttle very quickly and have to start over. You need to split targets well with your wingmates to keep them busy so that they don't insta-kill your mission critical craft. Once you get the hang of it, it's fun and a very quick mission.

Straightforward, quick mission. You may have to be clever when picking targets, especially on hard where the escape shuttle might be melted rather quickly - but it's rather simple if you play it smart. Not the most exciting mission by any means, but it's well-built and there are no bugs.

A decent and straight-forward mission to protect an escort shuttle from Rebel attack. Not particularly difficult, but enjoyable nonetheless. The AI don’t seem to want to attack the shuttle much, so you have a fair amount of time before any real damage is done to the shuttle.

It's a decent mission to kill some time. Fairly fun with simple goals of protect the shuttle but you have to be quick to prevent it from getting destroyed early on. I was happy to see the tug arrive to save the day!

This is a quick mission to complete if you have some familiarity with TIE Fighter and the concepts of target prioritization. Keep your Shuttle safe! Three points, mission works as expected and is straightforward.

This one can be easy if you know what you’re doing - I don’t so it wasn’t terribly easy. You escort a shuttle until the Avenger shows up as described, but it’s definitely more than just “shoot two A-Wings.” It's two flights of X-Wings and A-Wings. OK, so maybe not much more, but enough for me.

Too simple mission. But thera re no bugs.

This mission was much too easy; no challenge at all. Kill the two A-wings and there's nothing left to threaten the mission goals.

a great mission. kept nice and simple but still fun to play.

very funny mission,well thought mission, an easy mission, very good work.
