Pretty average really - you can either take on lots of craft for points or go down the route of just destroying the capital ship for a quicker finish.
Decent mission if you like dog fighting enemy fighters, but really quite tame when it comes to general execution and plot line. Pappy #1 was a much better mission in the trilogy of Pappy missions and this mission could do with a subtle revamp to make it more challenging.
A fairly easy mission on hard. A bit lengthy if you take the time to dogfight the several waves of enemy fighters. Or if you’re in a hurry, bring rockets for the cruiser, knock out the shields, disable with ions, and finish it off with cannons. Then mop up the remaining fighters. You’ll still get credit for the fighters that haven’t launched yet.
Decent mission if you like to dogfight, since you will have to face several waves of fighters launching against you from a CRS. But since you are flying the Space Cadillac, aka the T/D, no one can really ever harm you, and it's time to die for them. Alternatively, you could nuke the cruiser and mission accomplished.
my version of this review is for cheats and 4x. you can cheese the mission by ignoring the fighters and dumping infinite missiles onto the capital ship. if you can manage to kill the ship before it hyperspaces, you win automatically and avoid the endless fighter spam
Another kill a bunch of fighters mission. While the story seems like it could have a decent concept, the execution is a bit tame. The enemy fighters don't offer any real challenge and the mission is over fairly quick. Could be a bit better in terms of difficulty of enemy pilots, it barely seems like they will attack you.
I played on Easy with unlimited weapons and invulnerability. It's a very quick mission for points. You kill a capital ship and then mop up some starfighters. Pretty straightforward, nothing particularly special that I noticed.
Easy mission. Plenty of support, little aggro toward the player. I generally hate missions with waves of repetitive starfighters, but I was kind of okay with it in this one since you knew what to expect. Target practice time, shooting-gallery style. It is oddly satisfying blasting clumps of TIE Fighters as they pop out of a Cal Cruiser.
Not a terrible mission per se, but certainly not a great one. It consists mostly of attacking wave after wave of TIE Fighters and Bombers while in a Defender. And you have a squadron of Defenders and Missile Boats to back you up, so minimal challenge in completing the objectives. It's very easy to destroy the enemy cruiser without ever engaging any fighters or taking any damage.
Not quite sure how to describe this. Terrible doesn't quite cut it...
"alakjsdlfkjsaroe4waimcsr023 lkfasf ;03a 3ra" that's what was typed on my monitor after i fell asleep on top of my keyboard while flying this mission...if you're looking for something interesting, go somewhere else.
I think I actually got hit by a laser in this mission, at the very start. But otherwise no damage. Waaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy too easy, but good if you like killing shielded bombers and innocent, defenseless TIEs.
It's not too bad...It's a good mission for them who loves "shoot on everything" missions.
A whole squadron of Defenders and Missleboats vs rookies in regular TIE Fighters? Can we say "over-kill?"
