Feels like this is part of a story and not a FREE mission, maybe it would be better off condensing all three of the John FREE missions into a single battle? It's a good idea but not the best execution as the shuttles don't run fast enough and one of the X-Wings crashes into the platform if you come at it from below.
This mission was quite straight forward but appears a bit glitchy if your support forces destroy the platform before the mission critical shuttles can appear. Otherwise it plays well and is easy enough to complete. Good overall storyline and sufficiently challenging.
I thought this one was particularly annoying. The idea was fine - destroy a base, capturing the fleeing command staff, and taking out the enemy starfighters that try to stop you from achieving these objectives. However, if you get tied up with an enemy fighter, your friendlies can succeed too quickly (even on hard) making you fail the mission for no apparent reason. And a secondary objective is at odds with what your friendlies are trying to accomplish. Confusing and annoying.
This seemed to be the 3rd mission in a series but was a free mission. So without the context of the previous two missions the mission briefing would have no context, but at least it gave you a good rundown of the current mission. The mission itself was a tiny bit hectic as you need to pay attention to when the platform loses shields so you can disable it, as the escaping shuttles don't trigger until the platform is disabled. And even still it takes them a little bit to escape which could be enough time for your MIS to destroy the platform. Really causing you to need to baby the platform and lose out on kills of the other enemy starfighters.
Good concept, badly executed. The shuttles for example never hyperspace... It's mostly good though and fast the way most of our pilots like it. I sit in the middle for this one. Go ahead and fly it, at the very least for completion but you may even like it.
A nice and short mission about capturing some SHU and destroying a PLT. Basic but entertaining, this one is good for training, and beware your MISs that can ruin your day. Worth a try and an easy FCHG point.
Very short-lived. Mostly wait for things to get captured. I did like how the enemies ran away once their big ships were destroyed. It's more realistic-real pilots wouldn't hang around after all was lost.
Very annoying how the shuttle launch is triggered on disabling the PLT, when that's not a goal. Several times the PLT got destroyed by the MIS before the shuttles launched, causing mission failure
