Battle Reviews




Another Frodo battle, so take your pick on how to feel about that. Personally, they have really grown on me. Kind of like a fungus, but that might be as intended. Anyway, this battle is fairly pedestrian, it was clearly made to just tell its lighthearted story and give you something fun to do rather than a real challenge (on easy at least). It was a lot of fun to fly, but I wouldn't go out of my way to fly it. I would recommend using it in some kind of holiday comp though, could be fun.

I honestly can't get enough of these Frodo missions. This one is a great Christmas edition. I miss the days when we got to look forward to missions like these made by top designers. Frodo continues to add his humor to these missions and it is very enjoyable.

RA Genie



Frodo is never short of ideas. He is very creative and imaginative. However, this battle is not one of his better works. It belongs in the 'fly me for completion' pile with some dogfight engagements and not much more.

COL Phalk Sturm



Silly, funny, easy, a total rip off. Look elsewhere if you want something close to a military simulator. This one has very basic but effective humour, not much of a challenge but pounding down on stupid enemies, and barely more than a quick robbery of 4 FCHG. That's why I liked it. Walk away if you want something else than that.

LC Solohan50



I played on Easy. It's a funny mission but that's about all there is to it. On Easy, at least, there's not really any challenge or threat to anything you need to protect. You just kill some dumb enemies and go about your day. Normally I'd rate this lower but the humor of it made up for the lack of difficulty.

AD Hav Antiel



This is a pretty simple battle with a light Christmas theme. It was fast and easy to SPAM, so great for FCHG points, but look elsewhere if you expect any surprises or *ahem* challenges.

LC Kenath Zoron



Liked this story - nice and funny, good missions too.

COL Rau Aznable



It's kinda hard to review this battle, because there really isn't much to be said about it. It has good humour, but it's a very simple battle. Unless you play on hard, where you'll end up on no win situations. The only mission that demands any "thinking" is the first.
