    Pretty good missions. One mission was a little confusing but I soon figured it out. Frodo's missions all have a unique aspect to them and I again liked where this one went. Its fairly funny but definitely not his best work. Decent mission set overall. 3 stars.

    I played on Easy. This was a fairly quick series of missions. The only mission of real note is the mission with the minefield. It's still a short mission, but definitely feels a lot longer than the rest. Maybe I just hate minefields, though. Be careful of the Ions that the Starchasers use in that mission or you'll end up in a fully disabled T/F before you can blink.

    This is where Frodo puts his skills to great use. Excellent battle with great utilization of the XvT engine. A nice story, innovative objectives. Flying this I did get a sense of deja-vu, as I recall flying it a long long time ago on Xwing Alliance, whereby I actually had to DOCK within ten seconds :D

    I really like this battle. It lacks something to become a true gem, but the plotline and how the missions unfold accordingly is excellent. Original, challenging, and certainly not an ordinary cup of tea. I always enjoy flying it.

    Overall, something of a fun battle, but it felt very campy. It should have been called "Lemony Snicket's Series of Unfortunate Events". While the intent appears to be to create something a bit different, being in a bad spot at the end of each mission got a little frustrating.

    Nothing too special, but entertaining to fly a bunch of older, weaker, UNSHIELDED craft throughout. Z95, T/F, T/I. Final mission is a bit odd though: played on Easy and with re-inforcements and with all 4 craft in the wave at once - still lost the Dreadnaught and the asteroid base without me being able to do much to help that, since I was too busy protecting the shuttle from getting wasted. Nothing major though, just weird that losing a bunch of high-value cap ships doesn't result in mission failure.
