Battle Reviews

COL Phalk Sturm



This is a clear example of how a good plotline, a decent tactical layout and interesting options, can be totally spoiled if the missions are not beta tested. Mission 2 requires player to sink a Repair Yard, plus a CRL and 2 DREADs with 200% shields with only one set of advanced torpedoes. Stupid. A waste of time. With some minor tweaks this could have been a golden classic, but in its present state, is just an aborted attempt as the flaws prevent the player for any pleasant experience. Look elsewhere. You've been warned.

COL Rau Aznable



This battle has a nice story and some exciting combat situations. However, the player is usually at a great disadvantage and will face several situations where it's just him with no warheads against a capital ship. There's one mission where you have to wait 6 minutes to get some action and there was an awkward moment where I had to destroy a Repair Yard, all alone, with just my lasers. Can you guess how long that took? When you go fly this, make sure you have a MP3 player close to you.

As FCHG battles go this isn't one of the best! -P 70% of missions give you the have choice between TI/TF with no missiles or single flight of TB trying destroy at least 4 capitol ships, and then there’s mission 8! The Friendly Capitol ships could have been put to better use, especially against targets like the Repair-yard. Sorry good story, great idea, just let down by Doom style mission design. Although if you enjoy Doom type games and spending what seems hours holding the fire-trigger as blast away at the same target and not wishing that you had had missiles or at least another flight of friendly TB then this battle is for you.

Battle Bug Reports

GN Dunta Polo


Mission 1: Opposing sides' starships do not fire on each other when in range.

Mission 7: VSD Royal has to be crippled for the mission to be winnable.

Mission 8: E/S Royal II shows as repaired even when a Rebel ATR docks to capture it. Message indicating the E/S has been repaired appears too early, before the ETR from the Stalwart has finished docking and capture of it by the Rebels does not trigger a mission failure.

HA Anahorn Dempsey


In mission 7, you practically have to allow the VSD Royal to be destroyed to win. If you manage to save it, you're screwed. Suggest a redesign of the primary goals.
