Battle Reviews

It's a nice big battle and I enjoyed it quite a bit. The only knock I have on it is that it's really on you to disable the Dreadnaught yourself.

An acceptable free mission. There is a basic plot to it (at least one that gives you context for where you're at and what you're doing), although the briefing itself is pretty minimal. In terms of gameplay, there are plenty of waves of enemy fighters to shoot. The main thing I found missing was some focus regarding the capital ships. There is no dedicated friendly element that is supposed to go after them, nor are the enemy capitals really doing anything. They pretty much sit there waiting on you to clear out the fighters, so that you can grind away at them with lasers. Overall, the start was decent, but the end drug on needlessly. (Played on hard difficulty.)

The mission had a working briefing map with minimal information, the officer questions and the cloaked figure ones added a slight bit of information for the briefing and put up a thin frame for the story of the mission. The mission itself was without bugs and was not that bad. Even though there were too many secondary goals that didn't add anything for the storyline.

Breaking this siege by fending off all those fighters and blowing up cap ships is fun - and a real challenge if you want a good score. I'm missing some more originality for a top rating, though. Briefings were pretty minimal, too.

An decently enjoyable "protect&destroy" mission, but with far too many secondary objectives, that I'd prefer to be hidden.

A good mission to fly. However, the inspection part for secondary objectives gave no extra storyline.
