As a free battle, this is a strong recommend. I played on medium, with no changes to load out. 100% possible to beat and go for some bonus objectives with those settings. Decent replay value if you want to go for high score. I don't mind the lack of detail in the briefing, sometimes it's nice to get surprised.
This was a fun mission! Quick and easy if you just complete the main recon objectives but tough if you want to hang around and fight. Waves of fighters and swarms of missiles - my hands were sweaty and my heart was pounding!!
A simple yet juicy mission. Plotline is very thin. But the setup is classical inspect and dogfight your way out of it against over a dozen A-Ws and X-Ws. Challenging if pilot goes in a kill'em all mood. And all this, while flying the Space Cadillac, see the TIE Defender. Pure fun. Fight in the best fighter in the galaxy, inspect and kill everything, emerge triumphant. This never gets old. Worth flying.
Mission briefing is basically non-existent. Otherwise its basically a you vs the world battle with a couple of platforms that need to be inspected and lasers dodged while its going on. It was easily beatable on medium difficulty.
A fairly simple premise - get in, inspect, get out - although quite a challenge to complete the bonus objectives on hard. Completing the mission is simple, but if you want to stay and take on the swarms of A-Wings with concussion missiles, be ready for a serious dogfight. (I shamelessly ran away.)
It was a good mission, pretty easy, but nicely relaxing. What can be better at the end of the day.
Though this mission is on the shorter and simpler side, it was an awful lot of fun and is a perfect way to ease newer players into custom battles - inspect some stuff, blow some stuff up, all while not really being threatened all that much. An easy 4/5.
There are currently no open bug reports for this battle.
