While an interesting battle, and a fun concept (flying Battle of Yavin from the Imperial side, defending the "Death Star" against X- and Y-wings), ultimately I did not enjoy this battle. Being in basic TIE and trying to chase down X-wings while also recharging your lasers, and killing 24 Y-wings with just 2 lasers isn't my personal idea of fun.
On first take, a refreshing change. The challenge is with so many waves of Y-Wings, several torpedoes DO get through, so it becomes very hard to keep the 'Death Star' alive. It is nice the creator spaced the Y-Wings out, making it harder to shoot them all down straight away. Have to chase them one by one.
Another great mission, fly around, shoot some rebels, get home and get drunk!!!
Ok, so the asteroid wasn't a good idea, especially when the Y-Wings often crash with it, and maybe the Death Star should have the shields at 200% for more realism, but you have to admit this mission is really hard and a real test to any pilot.
Good idea with the Tie Fighter, more T/F missions would be great.
Decent Mission. The Death Star looks as well as can be expected, and the mission is a welcome break from all the other ones that stick you in Missle Boats or Defenders and have you go at it. Only complaints were too many waves of star fighters to be realistic, Death star is FAR to weak, and a major glaring error in the fact that you have Luke in Red 4, when in the movie he suits up in Red 5. Good Mission overall though
This mission was pretty good, considering it would be kind of hard to represent the Death Star. However, I think that maybe the Death Star should have been a little stronger, and maybe all of the fighters could have come as one unit. Then, make it a little more challenging by having 2 squadrons each of Y- Wings and X- Wings. Overall pretty good, though.
It's a tedious battle to wade through. The "Death Star's" shield could have been stronger, and the seemingly endless waves of fighters are frustrating. While it is a fair recreation of the Battle of Yavin, it's not enough to compensate for the sheer boredom I experienced.
Good mission. It would have been cool if they could have made it so that the rebels won just like in the real battle of Yavin but still your mission objectives are complete.
Hmmm... Not a bad battle, but I think it could have benefited from the Death Star having stronger shields, I mean, the Rebels aren't gonna take out the Death Star in around 20 torps, are they?
This free mission is a simulation of the Battle of Yavin, in case you didn't know. It's not a perfect simulation, but only because 1) you pretty much HAVE to use the asteroid facility for the Death Star and 2) it's balanced so the Empire can actually win and have some fun doing it. This is also an excellent example of how a TIE Fighter mission can be balanced. Too many missions put you in a single T/F and expect you to take out a squadron of A-Wings. However, the battle against the X-Wings and Y-Wings is decent. And he's my CMDR too :-P
