Battle Reviews




A fun little Frodo battle, some unique mechanics that were fun to try I'm sure, but don't play very well. It's simple enough (on easy), the difficulty really comes from the more traditional dogfighting missions. The circle tug...well. That's worth the price of admission alone tbh. A solid recommendation for fun and points.

Frodo with the madness. He is once again at it with his shenanigans in this mission. The real world potential situation of getting banned on a message board is turned into a fun battle. They just don't make missions like this anymore.

COL Phalk Sturm



This one is a little gem. It managed to snatch a couple of sound chuckles and even laughing out loud. The dialog is delightfully hilarious, and the 2nd mission against the suicide ramming TUGs is worth flying this battle on itself. Original, funny and invigorating. The only thing I am not giving it a 5 is because there are better ones out there, but this is mandatory if you want to try something new and laugh while avoiding a swarm of kamikaze TUGs. Don{t miss it!

LC Solohan50



I played on Easy. This is another funny mission. I appreciate the humor. The 2nd mission was a very interesting twist that I've never seen before...but I'm not sure it works. It was pretty brutal, even on Easy. The rest of the missions are cake walks but they're funny.

RA Genie



There was some nice creativity in this battle. Mission 2 in particular shows the creator does not lack imagination. Unfortunately, overall there are some spots, like mission #1, whereby there were some design flaws. There's the 'fish in the barrel' syndrome as well. The missions DO offer variation though and even though for me it wasn't that funny I did appreciate the attempt at humour and the original story. If the 'funny' elements were replaced with something a bit more immersive it would have been better.

LCM Marek Ny`Irfa



Well it was a funny one, partly due to a goody plot that... I'm not a big fan of really. I'd appreciate a bit more serious approach to that side of this battle. Otherwise it's a pretty solid, simple and fast battle. I loved the TUG missiles in mission two, they really took me by surprise. But if you figure out what's going on in that one, you can easily outrun them. It feels as if the only real challenge about this battle is the last mission as it's race against your allies in scoring the kills. It's an okay one to fly.

AD Hav Antiel



My only gripe with XvT missions designed by HA Frodo March is his propensity for using Imperial IFF for enemy craft. This makes it difficult to tell friendly craft from enemy craft in the mission, especially during dogfights and other moments when a clear IFF would be useful (that’s what IFF is designed for, after all). I understand that an Imperial IFF and different team designation could be useful in novel situations, but HA March relies on this in multiple missions across multiple battles.

LC Kenath Zoron



Decent missions, good storyline.

LCM Luca Fett



This is an OK battle... I guess... Maybe I just got up on the wrong side of the bed the day I played it... but it barely got a smile out of me... easy missions, even on hard difficulty, in fact, a tad too easy if u ask me, not open ended enough, but good work nonetheless Frodo...

COL Rau Aznable



Another enjoyable and humorous mission from Frodo. It can be completed in less than an hour and is great for relaxing. The only flaw that prevents me from giving a 5 is the last mission, which has a wait at the beginning that just makes it unnecessarily easy.

MAJ Tek Selkirk



Very amusing and enjoyable, and that's coming from someone who doesn't fly SP that much.

COL BubbaX



Amazing. Simply amazing. Anyone who says otherwise is a liar. :P
