I have to agree with some of the previous reviews. This battle features pretty much only one type of mission across the six that it has. Still I don't find the enemy force overly overwhelming and the number of waves isn't set insanely high. It's an okay battle to fly but most certainly not an exciting experience to do so.
Well, this one was quite well designed if we don't mention the bug in one of the briefings that causes the game to crash. But the battle itself has a good plot, and there is some enemy craft to play with. However, even on hard settings, it is quite pleasant and not very hard. It has quite a good balance I must say, and it gave me an hour of good fun. I recommend it to those who want to see how IW operations look like: it is almost a commercial :)
This is one of the most boring battles I have ever played. All six missions are just "destroy all the Rebels". Incorporating little more than repetetive & slow "dogfighting" this battle offers no real entertainment.
Lots of dogfighting and wave finishing :P. But story is OK.
There are currently no open bug reports for this battle.
