Battle Reviews

Pretty challenging but well designed Missile Boat mission - definitely not something you see every day.

Excellent mission, lots of action and challenging!


Another great mission - I really enjoyed fighting against a mix of 'rebel' and 'imperial' ships types. Lots to get done and survive in this one, so will be playing again at some point ti improve my score.

A nice overal demonstration of the versatility of the missile boat. It demonstrate what kind of a major game changer this craft is – at the same time dogfighting an onslought of both republic and imperial high-tech starfighters while inspecting and wiping out cap ships like flies.

This mission made me enjoy the missile boat more. As a kid I really hated the missile boat as I wanted to zip around in the cooler looking TIEs and showboat in dogfights. However, this mission, which contains a good mix of inspection, dogfighting, and capital ship attack really shows off the multi-role capability of the missile boat, the star of the show. I definitely recommend this mission and it really sold me on how cool the missile boat can be, along with my growing older and realizing the importance and versatility of a heavy assault/attack craft rather than a youthful obsession with fighters (except for the Y-Wing which I have always loved and always will).

Some of the challenge will definitely come with inspecting containers before your eager squadmates blow them up so keep on your toes and don't let your squadmates steal your glory. I played on normal and easy and found the challenge level overall fair with the usual frustrations that come with dogfighting TIEs in a missile boat.
