Battle Reviews

VA Locke Setzer



It's definitely... let's say a bit inelegant. It's not bad per se, but there's just a lot of very rookie design choices here. It's easy, at least

(Also not sure about earlier comments with unshielded craft, doesn't seem to apply anymore)

RA Genie



The briefing and storyline are on point. You can do it some justice by experiencing it instead of rushing to the Hangar. The missions themselves are decent but seem to lack some play-testing. In the 3rd mission? some of the rebel flight groups had bad waypoints which made them sitting targets. Overall, it's good, and without any serious problems. Perhaps a bit too easy, probably rushed.




Overall an average battle. Missions were short and straightforward, with a small variety of objectives. No serious problems with the missions, other than maybe being a little too simple. Total time was probably less than half an hour to finish it, with the majority of that time spent whittling down the health of the cruiser on the final mission.

COL TheBlackxRanger



I wasnt too sure what the order was for one of the missions, you had to kill pink, danger, mr. t, and another color but the a wings and pink x wings kept hyperspace so fast it got to be pretty frustrating

LC Rando



A simple, quick, mostly easy battle that doesn't have anything else going for it. The in-game plot is almost nonexistent, but an included text file expands on it slightly. The battle itself is underwhelming, and poorly designed. Normally I'm not one to criticize objectives, since there's only so much you can do within the game engine, but defending ISD Avenger from random attacks is a theme I'm growing increasingly weary of. Especially when its orders are to hold steady, so it won't even return fire. Not that it really matters, because nearly the entire enemy attack force will crash into it anyway. Another annoying aspect is that sometimes required targets will hyper out, so you must remain vigilant. Luckily the missions are quick. The final mission is boring, a lone cruiser and three X-wings are your only opposition. Getting a good score in this battle is actually quite difficult, mainly from the first mission and the aforementioned defense mission, as you'll lose out on a significant number of potential kills in a very short time span.

HA Anahorn Dempsey



Artificially making things hard by making you fly a shieldless GUN (when your wingmen has shields, albeit at 50%), and making you protect an ISD with no shields, ven though it's a "standard" patrol. This is not good. Also several defective inflight msgs. Not to mention defending your ISD in an unshielded T/A :(
