Battle Reviews

LCM Lo Mar



Really enjoyed this. The mission design is generally pretty basic, nothing super new there. And some of the ship orders are a little wonky, particularly caps attacking you. All of that said, the concept was novel and it was well told in the briefings. Tie Fighter is kind of a limited platform and they managed to do something really unique with it. I love that level of creativity, so a solid 5 from me. ;)

LC SkyShadow



A thoroughly enjoyable battle. Quite a unique plot compared to the battles that I have seen so far. Though simple, each mission is clearly set out and advances the story nicely.
Ramming the 'Ultimate Shield' in the latter mission brought a smile to my face.
The battle isn't too challenging in terms of difficulty though reaching for those high scores will keep you occupied.

MAJ Gustan



Interesting story line. The last mission was particularly fun. Make sure to make good use of your wingmen, particularly in ignoring the invulnerable X-Wing. Last mission also provided some good opportunities to go after large targets. Craft were varied and not real bugs to mention. A fun battle.

RA Genie



With the exception of some capital ships chasing you - which personally I don't mind - this is a well-made battle. Highly recommended for a bit of fun and ... ramming. There is a mission whereby you have to destroy the shuttles and transports before they make it home. Normally you can use your wingmen, but if you are chasing high scores, you gotta do it yourself. It was a bit of a stretch at first :) Overall it's a good battle, solid, no major flaws. Giving it a 5.

GN Triji Boliv



Now that was cool :) Mildly annoying, but cool. You just have to get your strategy down...the tractor beam helps a lot in Mission 4

VA Locke Setzer



It has been quite awhile since I just had so much...fun with a battle. This was really enjoyable... not the most challenging, but if you ask me fun factor is much more important than challenge and this was filled with fun!

COL Dan Malaktos



Pretty Good! One downfall was that your wingmen would treat the Revolution(Invincible X-Wing) as a vulnerable fighter. They would stay on him untill you tell them to ignore him Also, the Revolution would treat itself the same way. It would dodge, and so forth. In this respect, I found these missions easy, because I could tell my wingment to go after the objectives while I hit the Revolution a few times. This would cause the Revolution to follow me the whole mission, and using competent flying, I was able to almost ignore the Revolution and complete the mission. Why the 3? It's just fun!

[Good] The storyline that was thought up is pretty good. The Rebels would still be doing research. [Bad] For the longest time I couldn't do it, because I was flying with collisions off (not sure how THAT happened..), and neither the breifings or the readme file ever mentioned to check for that. [Good] It is different from the usual, because you have to ram the fighter (if collisions are set to ON) in the end of the battle. [Bad] The XW is often loaded with Adv. Mis. This is a bit much, because it is invincible. At most, it should have had standard concussion missiles, NOT advanced. [Good] You had wingmen that weren't rookie-level AI. [Bad] I just didn't get the feeling while flying it that it was "fun". It wasn't a chore, and it wasn't a joy; it was just plain bland. The missions just needed some perking up, perhaps. [Bottom line] An okay to so-so battle that lacks a little in the area of keeping players interested.

LT Fieldmarshall



Very good battle. I like that invincible X-Wing thing, but not the best battle I've seen. It has a good plot, and a must fly for EHers.
