Battle Reviews

CM Jagged Fell III



Did not really get the story for this one. It hints at a larger story but made no real effort to tell it in the mission. The combat was fine.

COL Phalk Sturm



This mission has an elaborate story behind it, very much interesting and that could have improved the game experience and the understanding of the mission, but unfortunately the mission itself turned out to be a dull dogfight against unshielded T/Fs and Y/Ws and since player can not carry warhead, due to some pinchpenny directives in the armoury perhaps?, the whole mission is on lasers, and taking on 2 CRS, 1 ISD and 1 ESC just on lasers, is folly enough. Very poor mission development from an excellent plotline. A shame.

COL Mouse Droid



This is a solid mission and it takes good effort to destroy the horde of Y/W's and TIE's that is attacking you. I strongly recommend you read the background story in MISC. It might include some dodgy english, but it is of high quality and really adds to the mission experience.
