Battle Reviews

COL Genie



Decent mission. As usual, the gunboat's firepower shines through and you carry twice the load on this mission which is a bit of an overkill.

COL Phalk Sturm



Nice mission about a capturing operation while in a GUN. Ordnance is perfect and everything is well planned. Enjoyable and simple mission. Worth a try and a quick FHCG point

Easy, smooth free mission, then again featuring The Emperor's Hammer raiding some poor pirate convoy because we're such nice chaps. It's not that hard (not even on -Hard-) if you know how to deal with those adv. missiles and it even allows you to get a PERFECT score if you pick the GUNs and put those ions to do what they do best... as disabling some T/As to start with... *ahem*. You'll also need to be quick on dealing with a few X-Wings trying to screw up your work in the last minute. In the end it's just another of those free missions, nice to fly and straight to the point for you to not waste more neurons than strictly necessary on planning, and I gave it a 3 for it's almost bug free except for that speedy animated briefing. It just lacks originality. Oh, btw, please note those previous 3 reviews above, supposedly by LCM Shado Fenn. Can you read 'em? Right: NONE OF THEM were submitted by this pilot, being the first by CM TK-9780, the second by COL Gunman and the third by LT Blackrage. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear...

CM TK-9780



The mission looks rather too easy at first glance. Big mistake! The mission needs planning, skill, and gigantic amounts of luck. There is away to crack this mission and has to do with those ‘Gunboats’. Nice little gem!

COL Rau Aznable



When you first look at the Y-Wings coming at you, you think it's easy. That's just your first mistake. The difficulty of this mission makes it a joy to fly, it really is the perfect challenge. I just love the combination of simplicity and difficulty here. I don't give it a 5 because I think it's wrong that the Gunboats and the Tie Advanceds are linked as a single squadron. The player should control his flightgroup only.

LT Blackrage



This is for hard only. While a good battle, the none of the imperial craft have the intelligence to survive. I can clear out all the craft in a T/A but that doesnt do me any good when the y-wings take out hte guns in the first 2 minutes of the battle. On hard the T/A get taken out on the first line making it impossible to kill the 12 y-wings that come after you with adv missiles. The imperial craft need higher AI.

Battle Bug Reports

The animated briefing plays way too quick, jumping from page to page at light speed, making it impossible for a non-native like me to read it properly. And even if it doesn't affect the mission at all nor it'd be that hard to fix it I call this a bug.
