Battle Reviews

It's fine - not much to complain about, but not much to write home about either

Not a bad set of missions to fly, quite a bit of variety and craft available. Briefings were...well, brief, but you got the idea of what was required in each mission. Really not a fan of flying rebel craft, but that is just personal taste. Didn't encounter any bugs.

Excellent sequel for the previous battle. You will fly almost every fighter in the rebel arsenal, and in well balanced missions. FLying the Y-W is definitely a thing of the past, but is nice to fly. The B-Wing's precise ion cannons will come in handy whenever fending off smaller fighters. A good and must fly battle for the Rionese saga.

Another fun battle with a great plot that continues the story of the previous battle. Not sure I'm a fan of the Y-Wing/Rocket combination for the final mission (though I DO love the Y-Wing), Advanced Proton Torpedoes or a B-Wing (which I hate flying) would've been a more effective choice for base and ship destruction and defending oneself against fighters, I think.

I thought this battle was pretty fun although it did feel a lot like a near carbon copy of the first Rion battle. Recon this, assault, more Rebels are coming so kill them, wait there are more Rebels here so we’re going to kill more, okay now go over here and kill them. The recon mission was a lot likely the recon mission in the first Rion battle – endlessly and uselessly hypering to and from various sectors to inspect craft that I know are not going to pop for the mission objectives. However, any mission that asks me to blow up lots of Rebels is always going to get at least a 3 in my book. Also one thing that broke the realism for me was there a comment about Christmas in the radio chatter. Considering this happened a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away I don’t think Christianity has left the Earth yet.

Good battle, all the flight groups did what they were supposed to, nothing wrong with it... just nothing spectacular. Good battle tho, i think you could combine all the rion ones into a CAB perhaps

Not bad. I liked the fact that there is a continuing storyline here, against a static enemy. The final battle against the Rion's shipyard was a bit cheesy, but overall, the battle is good!

Good series of varied missions. My only gripe was on the last mission, try as I might the Frigate was always destroyed as soon as I came out of Hyperspace regardless of my actions....

Cool mission, but we need a mission with a YT-3000!

Some missions are not so easy to solve and the hardest mission is the final one . Besides this I really like the idea of fighting the rebels in their own craft . Great battle !

Mission 4 was one of the best I've played on any platform. Good work Striker !!!

Agreed :P Very cool :) I really liked the long Bomber Streams in mission 4 >;-)

It rocks, and it's mine :P
