Battle Reviews

Great mission! Really enjoyed this one - quite simple, but hugely fun to complete, with a nice surprise for extra action right at the end - well worth a play-through.

Nice little mission. Makes sense. Makes fun.........................................

I enjoyed this mission a lot as it's got a good story and plot behind it. The gist of this mission is a customs checkpoint with a Interdictor and its fun to see how it evolves. As some of the other reviewers have said it's not too challenging but worth the time!

Pretty easy mission, even on hard. Standard checkpoint inspection, disable a target, and protect boarding craft from enemy fighters type of mission. Secondary and secret objectives are easily achievable as well.

This mission was okay. There was nothing super special about it, but i had fun. Inspect some freighters, disable the ones carrying contraband, then protect the boarding craft from starfighters as they perform their docking operations. It was not bad - felt like one of the early missions in the main game's first battle - just a little less impressive.

Looks like this is a companion mission to the previous free mission. The map and officer briefings had some small callbacks to the previous mission as it set up something for the current mission. As for the mission itself, it had a few different aspects to it, which was nice, however there were quite long dwell times between a couple of steps. Thankfully I had warning and was able to accelerate time for a bit, which made the mission tolerable.

It's a decent mission. I liked it. The freighters exploded on me for some reason, not sure if they crash into each other if you leave them there long enough, because there was nothing else around when two of them exploded. I had to use the TFW editor to check it, as YOGEME for some reason gets an error with this TIE mission. In any case, I recommend flying this one.

Basic mission but fun to fly. This will see you inspecting and disabling, then protecting the capture operation of some FRTs, while dogfighting and eventually capship sinking. Since you are flying in the T/D, nothing can really ever harm you as your are roaming the stars in the Space Cadillac like a cruising down the coastline at sunset. Worth a try and good for some honest FCHG point in the barrel.

There are definitely some slow spots to this mission where the time multiplier will come in handy. I also concur with the previous reviewer about the vague plot. However, there is at least a little bit of skill required to complete this one and as far as some of the early free missions go, it isn't too bad. I give this one a 3.

Slow start. Gets a little more interesting near the end. The plot's kind of vague-not sure what we're fighting over.
