Battle Reviews

Just a destroy mission for the most part but does have a capture task and a thought out story

A pretty cool mission, although nothing too special. It's manageable so long as you focus on the fighters first and then go for the platform. The rebel spies are pretty easy to capture, and the friendly ISD is barely damaged during the mission so you don't have to worry about those.

Excellent mission. You are riding the Space Cadillac and as usual, everything will be effortless. However, the mission requires destruction of a STRKC and her escorting fighters, elimination of a platform and capturing some rebel spies. The mission, as it can be seen, has all three roles balanced in a high level of playability. Bomb, disable and dogfight for a shiny point of FCHG and some good old fun with this great game.

It's a nicely packed single mission and it offers some background storyline at least. My only nitpick is that you can see some of your own friendly starfighters entering the hangar even as more enemy forces arrive. This means the commands given to the friendlies are incomplete. It doesn't make sense that while still under heavy threat to return home as if the job was well done (unless you are a bomber). Intercepting craft should remain out until the end of the battle. Still, a nice skirmish and flying of course in the obligatory T/D. The only chance to fail this mission is when you have to protect the ATR that attempts to capture the fleeing Rebels.

A fairly quick mission with interesting variety of opposition. It's rather simple though. If you use a custom shader, please note that the second area has a background object issue giving no light. You will fly in darkness which perhaps makes shooting stuff down a tad more difficult.

Well I will be honest, I chose this mission for the Sin On Patrol competition and it was incredibly difficult. I did it on Hard mode to start (you will all probably know by now that I am a terrible pilot) and your wingmen aren’t exactly helping you out. I liked the premise of the mission – blow up every Rebel in sight – but quite literally each and every single other craft flying with you dies within the first minute, and so it’s just you against 30 other fighters – TIE Interceptors, TIE Fighters, A Wings, and X wings. Not to mention that you have to take down a Strike Cruiser by yourself. By and large your wingmates are pretty useless, even if you try to manage them. I can usually take down about five before there is literally nowhere for me to dodge or juke – lasers are coming at you from all directions. Extremely difficult even on the lowest difficulty setting. Wasn’t a fan.

I think I was drunk when I made this mission, which is the main reason why I gave it a four. :)

This was an odd mission, and a bit of a fiddle to get it right. It was okay in the end I guess.
