Battle Reviews

COL Genie



Some of the craft behaviour doesn't sit well with me. Once you destroy all the Rebel forces except the Calamari, everyone from the Emperor's Hammer is packing and heading home. Comeon, surely we want to destroy that juicy Calamari?

COL Phalk Sturm



Nice mission, engaging, simple and fun to play. Oversee a capture operation and then protect your people against an incoming fleet of CRS and complement of bombers and fighters. Basic stuff, but very well crafted and worth a try for some good ole' school fun.

COL Rau Aznable



This one is pretty hard, in terms of protecting a target. Maybe some luck is involved? I must give it a lower rating for the long wait at the start, but it's good overall.

LT Blackrage



I did this on hard and completed it on my first try. Keeping that FRG was hard at the end though. Had 12 hull left when I saved it.

HA Frodo March



Well designed and good plot when it comes to free missions. I enjoyed it.

CM Shinobi



Very good mission. Worthy of 5 if not immpossibility of completion it on hard. At least for me :P FRG was too close to CRS...
