Battle Reviews

LT Von Goosington



Good fun. Had to reduce the difficulty though as it clearly was designed as a multiplayer mission.

CM Vanguard88



far too many x-wings to deal with at the start of the mission. You start outnumbered 2:1 and you lose all your allies within the first minute. You are constantly facing 5 or 6 enemies and it is hard to trim the waves because of the redundant X-wing flight names. This means you never get time to protect your gunboats from the other x-wings.

CM Nova Discordia



Pretty standard dogfighting mission - enjoyable and good hone your skills on :)

RA Genie



This is a bit more challenging than the usual dogfighting, in a good way. There is a problem with the Y-Wing waves though. Be sure to destroy the Strike Cruiser. Also I find it weird that they 'withdraw' and yet there they are sitting there waiting to be destroyed.

COL Phalk Sturm



Simple mission of classic dogfighting, either in a T/A or in the GUN for a tougher challenge. It's well balanced and doesn't get tedious or frustrating. Very good for some CoOp games. Worth a try.

HA Anahorn Dempsey



Standard shoot-em-all up mission. The only downside is your warheads: you get regular, not advanced missiles (I'll never understand why you would do that if you put the player in a TIE Advanced), and they are utterly useless long-range since even a Y-wings is able to evade them, not to mentuion the Y-wings have 200% shields so you need all your missiles to take out just one of them. Still, quite enjoyable if you wanna do some dogfighting.

LC randyrumrnr



A pretty standard Imp vs Rebel battle. Loads of X-Wings to shoot down, which is always fun. A good mission to co-op with new squadron members. No bugs to report.

ok mission

LT Killian Bloodhawk



Holy X-wings Batman! I've tried this mission a bunch of times, and on the hard level it is easy to get overwhelmed by all the X-wings.

CPT Cmr Brown



I flown the mission over and over and I keep wondering why there is chewing gum on the Strike Cruiser. When you think about it, most aliens aren't really seen with gum in their... ummm... mouth(s). Although, I wouldn't want to check under some flight office desk.

LT Von Goosington


Mon Cal and Strike Cruiser 'Withdraw' Victory condition is met without them withdrawing (it fires once the snubfighters have all been eliminated). They proceed to sit there static and easy to pick off for extra points.
