Battle Reviews

CM Jagged Fell III



Can either be done VERY fast or you can stick around and fight the 3 caps and 36 or so rebel fighters by yourself.

CM Nova Discordia



A well designed and interesting mission - in the first area, take out the T-Wings quickly as they hyper away when attacked, and you fail the mission. Lots of extra points here, if you want to do extra dog-fighting and have the skill, or you can 'play-it-safe' - that kind of flexibility is great in a mission, so this FREE mission, I think is really well done.

LC andr3



Concise mission with a brief setup that makes sense for the mission. Tiny bug: there's no landing message when you're back at the Immortal's hanger. You have to q out of the mission.

CM LQC-75-3



A very well-designed mission in my opinion, it gives the pilot an unheard of amount of freedom; you can engage different groups if you want, or just get in, do the job, and get out. Up to the pilot, really. It's a fair challenge if you want it to be, and an easy mission if you make it one.

COL Phalk Sturm



Excellent mission. The plotline and how the mission is structured has a proficient level of realism of how space assassination should look like. The additional goals that show up along the way are consistent with the story and this means it could be replayed several times. The only mistake I see, it's the T/I with hyperspace capabilities. TIE Advanced would have been more realistic, or a GUN. But overall, an excellent mission. Not to be missed.

MAJ JetMech



This one was really fun, I enjoyed the idea of a secret assassination. Well written with good comms throughout. Even threw some wrenches in the works at the first checkpoint. All around, well done.

RA Genie



This mission is immaculate. The briefing at the beginning is very good. The in-flight messages keep you informed and entertained throughout the mission. Lastly, the mission itself does not disappoint. Quite different than the regular skirmishes, giving something for everyone. Want a short mission, you have it. Want a storyline rich mission, you got it. And finally, want some high-score chasing challenge? You got it. Excellent, 5/5.

LCM Marek Ny`Irfa



Very nice, tactical mission (my favorite kind). The main objective is relatively easy to achieve and you can stop there. It's quite a huge challenge through if you decide to stay and fight instead of just running. I liked this one a lot.

LT Dirk Fireslinger



Nice mission overall. Couple things could have been added to make it better, such as being able to dock with ISD at end of mission instead of manually quiting. Also make the eliminate witness objective show up only after t-wings arrive. Definately loved flying the good ol' T/I again, and the dogfighting in the mid-way point was lots of fun.
