Battle Reviews

Really, not hard at all on Hard. Very basic but I had fun.

Dogfight some Z-95s, Transports, and Shuttles. Maybe help the T/Bs blow up the platform (with the hold steady orders). Not a whole lot there, but it's a bit of mindless fun to play, so I won't knock it too hard

Very easy on hard. Plenty of allied fighters and a Nebulon-B against Z-95s, Transports, and Shuttles. The platform that is the secondary goal doesn’t even fight back and will get pounded by bombers with torpedoes.

This mission is simple and quick enough to complete (even on hard), and continues with the same enemy in the other Pif free missions. There is a basic plot, and you do your portion of the mission while other fighters take care of theirs (which I find a plus). The selection of enemy craft is a bit of change of pace. Overall, perfectly playable with no obvious problems, but also not especially memorable.

Shooting down SHUs and TRNs was a fun change for dogfighting. Also see my review for FREETIE #70.

A pretty well thought out mission except for the minor bug that I posted. I like the fact that it tries to follow with the other Pif missions that have been submitted.

Battle Bug Reports

LC Tempest


This has the strangest bug. On the goals screen, the primary mission objective (there is only one) is tagged as completed (green) when you complete it, but then it gets *untagged* (yellow) again once you also complete the secondary goal.
This does not affect the mission outcome, it's completed allright.
