Battle Reviews

CM Benji Tandor



This is a short but sweet battle with fun writing, pitting you against pirates instead of rebels for a change ! It's unfortunate that the fourth mission asks you to slowly slug it out with stations and capital ships in an A-Wing without a reload craft.

My twenty-sixth battle in the TIE Corps.

CM Nova Discordia



This one really didn't do it for me. Despite the reviews, I found this battle really hard, even on easy. Mission 2 felt buggy to me - my first fly through, the (minimal) support you get from a flight of B Wings was problematic - they ended up attacking not primary, instead of disabling the craft they needed to. According to the briefing, you need to call for reinforcements *after* they have done the said disabling, but just call for them straight away and try to protect the B-Wings while they do their thing. Mission 4 was a slug fest of trying to destroy platforms in a A Wing. Not fun. There is a lot of work gone into this, and it may just be my experience, so to fair, I'll give it a 3. For 'enjoyment' though, nearer 2. Give it a go, and see what you think :)

COL Phalk Sturm



Short and easy to finish, this battle allows the player to have a good amount of fun while shooting down all kinds of targets, in the best fighters of the Allied arsenal. The only critique is about last mission where a blow-up everything mission has to be carried out while onboard a tiny A-Wing and no one to reload you. That was a bit boring, but for the overall experience, it was a nice short battle to fly.

While the Infiltrator Wing reserves and system defense forces were called up to the front lines in order to help defeat the pirates, smugglers, and un-licensed bounty hunters that have decided to call our system their home. This can and will not continue!

The Infiltrator Wing fleet has been recalled and has been ordered to immediately begin patrolling the system to break up pirate gangs, inspect suspected smuggling vessels, and drive off un-licensed bounty hunters. We don't need their kind here!

You are to attempt to arrest all suspects and impounded suspected vessels. Remember, this system is our home as well as home to numerous civilians. Check your fire; do not fire until fired upon. If you are in a craft without Ion cannons or mag pulse warheads, keep all vessels from jumping to hyperspace while we send assistance.
