Battle Reviews

CM Jagged Fell III



Fun mission with a variety of targets. No real overarching story, but there is a little of one and that is good enough. Nice animated briefing.

CM LQC-75-3



A pretty cool mission which I found to be realistic in terms of skirmish size. The capital ships seemed reasonable to fight against, and the fighters posed the usual threat, which is to say, nothing too challenging, but not boring either. Overall a great mission using the T/A.

COL Phalk Sturm



Very good mission. It starts, as its name states, as a routine patrol, then the story unfolds in a series of original events. The action is very well balanced and keep the player up to the edge at all times. Totally recommended.

MAJ JetMech



There were some curveballs to keep you engaged with this mission. There are definitely some challenges that require quick target acquisition and power management to be able to comply with the goals. Good dialogue as well. Well done.

RA Genie



For a recon mission it is done quite well. I like the use of the inflight messages to keep you from getting bored, with both a touch of humour while also keeping you informed on what is going on. Just short of excellent, hence a rating of 4. You have some freedom to deviate a little bit from the plan as well, especially if you are chasing high scores, which is always a plus. And for those who read this review until the end, a little bonus. At the last sector, the difference between shooting fish in a barrel and getting your ass kicked is to avoid shooting at the striker cruiser until all the xwing waves are dealt with.

One could say it's a boring or classic patrol mission. But if you play the XWA-FREEs from the beggining, this one is on the better end of things. It features three regions and something different to do in each of them. On the other hand perhaps it was a boring patrol after all, and maybe I fell asleep during it. Because a Strike Cruiser spewing out hordes of missile and barrel roll happy A-Wings is a nightmare! My wrist hurts after this one. Still a good mission to fly.

Too way classic patrol mission with nothing special on it, although it's well built and challenging with all those Xs and As with missiles trying to get your six for lunch. And then you have a T/A! P0W!! And special ways for HS-hunters to increase their score, behold!

CM Conjre



It was ok. The nav points were far away from where you are. Not a good missions by itself but if the creators added on to it, it sounds like you can really make a good battle out of it. I'm giving it a three because of this reason.

MAJ Erryc Lasitter



Great Mission, Keep em coming!
