    Battle Reviews

    Nothing spectacular in particular with Frodo's history of a mission maker, but still an enjoyable set of missions. This battle with a more serious tone has you doing mostly the usual dogfights and inspection stuff. Solid mission overall with good story progression.

    COL Genie



    I liked this battle. The inspection was a bit maddening but that's ok. It was done in a nice way overall and compared to most of Frodo's battles this can be considered a 'serious' one. I believe most people will enjoy flying it in all the difficulty settings.

    COL Phalk Sturm



    A good battle. The plotline is very good and so is the execution of the missions. Player will see a variety of roles, bombing and dogfighting in the usual imperial ordnance, see T/A or GUN. However unoriginal, the battle does succeed to deliver some time of good dogfights and solid fun. Last mission's R&D facility was also well designed and deserves a mention. Not to miss it.

    A interesting battle by our hobbit; however, dogfighting a-wings in a Gunboat wasn't all that ammusing to me:P.

    A good but not great battle. Fun to fly, but it just lacks something to push it higher. Still, i recommend it for comps or fun!

    Mission 2: When enemy starships are disabled and thus cannot flee, the in-flight messages and objective parameters still assume they hyperspace out.

    Mission 5: The Rebel PLT/3s are set to attack the R&D Asteroid Facility. The Rebel cruisers sit still and make no attempt to engage the ISD Relentless and Subjugator.
