Battle Reviews

Errg. pointless mission! Very silly - thank the Dark Lords of the Sith though that you can speed up time if you need to!

Whether you're slowly watching other TIEs slam into the ship or using the ISD nose cone bug to destroy it, there really isn't much of a mission here.

Complete and utter nonsense that has you hold down the trigger button at four times speed endlessly. I do not know what else to say about this misson to get my review to the manded thirty words for the competition.

Odd mission. Its 73 TIEs vs an ISD. The readme, Officer Briefing, and Cloaked figure briefing are all jokes. Then its basically 1 vs an ISD along with 72 lemmings. Apparently you can either do this mission the slow and steady way, or blow open the nose of the ISD and crawl inside. I opted for the latter. Not sure I would have had the patience to do it the long way, slowly removing all the turrets, while disabling the ship with the two mag pulses.

This is definitely an oddball mission. You are in an unshielded tie fighter and have to take down a star destroyer. It's either impossible, or takes forever depending on how many wingmates will spawn in, or quick and silly if you know the star destroyer warhead launcher gap trick. It was fun and a quick way to get a good score on hard, but not really what you think of when you think of a good mission.

It's an interesting concept but badly executed. The briefing is also not really funny, I will put that down to personal taste. Others may enjoy it more. The ISD's FG name (Holocaust) is also unfortunate. Otherwise, this is a nice mission to get acquainted with how to take down an ISD using a TIE Fighter. The current high score of 23k+ is unreachable and was probably achieved with an older version of this mission.

	Due to an imminent officer's beach party in the hangar of the ESC Smiley, all TIEs
and pilots have been ordered on a suicide mission against an ISD, to keep them out of the 
way during the festivities. You (and everyone else) will fly a standard TIE Fighter. Good 
luck, and be sure someone can find your will after this mission! (Note: your hard-earned 
credits may help you in this mission)
