Nice quick little battle. Missile Boat Missions are always fun.
I like the premise of this mission as its right in line with how...somehow palpatine returned. I dont really like using the missile boat but thats a design choice by the mission maker. Very quick battle, a good one to get some practice in with the ship
The storyline was good. It's about cloning the Emperor, which is right up the alley of the people reading some of the novels etc. It's of course not that detailed, but its at the centre of this battle. Where it begins to crumble like a lot of other battles is in its lack of play-testing. Minor issues here and there. I love flying the Missile Boat, it's a guilty pleasure of mine, especially if it comes equipped with a tractor beam, but short of that, this battle doesn't live up to what it could have been. It's also clear - storywise - the 4th mission was unnecessary but the creator probably had to create at least 4 missions.
In one of the missions the Rebel fighters attacking the installation kamikaze crash into the station, which would seem to be a bug, but not 100% sure. Otherwise a decent battle.
A fairly lackluster battle made worse by poorly done briefings. The plot had potential but was undeveloped and not supported by the initial briefings or after action briefings. The choice of a missile boat was an odd pick for these missions considering the majority of foes were starfighters. I was annoyed in M3 when two waves of rebel bombers kamikazed the station, robbing me of kills. Why are the radio transmissions in ALL CAPS???
I played on Easy with cheats enabled. I can't really speak to much on this battle except that it's very fast. If you want a battle that's extremely quick and gets you points, this one is for you.
Are you looking for a spam battle to get some fast and easy RTF points. Well give this one a shot. Be careful not to blink because the battle may be over before you know it.
One concern after completing mission 4 was that I was expecting 2 more missions. There were 6 missions in the zip file, so something didn't make sense. Either way, extremely easy missions with the gun boat. Literally just shoot down capital ships.
Not great. A solid spam battle, but the mission runs real weird. Why was everything in all caps? I lost the thread of the story line real quick.
Hoo boy. It's particularly cruel that I was coming off Shadow in Time, which was the single best story and mission design in TIE I'd ever seen. This just doesn't compare. The story is actually more inferred than told, the missions are very basic... not too memorable.
I don't know what just happened...? But it happened within five minutes flat.
Press the 'G' key, look up what to destroy and then simply pull your trigger... battle done.
A distinctly below average battle, most remarkable for the speed if its potential completion. While its preferable to not have to sit for lengthy periods awaiting goal completion, flying a fully armed up missile boat against low level threats for multiple missions unfortunately becomes repetitive and unmemorable. Not terrible, despite a few minor issues, but not one I would refly.
A very short, quick, easy battle. The quick pace is refreshing after some long battles. Getting a decent score is also quite easy. For all missions, you fly a missile boat against a few dozen fighters and a capital ship or two. The briefings maps are okay, but there doesn't seem to be any real plot and the officer doesn't explain anything. It's kind of fun to zoom around using the SLAMs and tractor beam to blast away fighters, but there's not much substance here. There's even a few minor bugs along the way, too. Overall it's mildly entertaining but still below average.
The Missile Boat is the wrong choice of player craft for this one. With a full load of bombs or rockets, taking out enemy caps is a piece of cake, leaving you plenty of missiles to finish off enemy fighters. Good MIS missions are harder to make than you think. But give the player a T/D and this one becomes only tedious.
Decent mission - the plotline is unique in my experience and the notion of flying in the place of a Sector Admiral is rather cool.
Objectives can be easily met, although mission #2 can take a few attempts, and in my opinion the missile load out should be prioritised towards heavier ordinance.
The briefings are poor (briefing maps with only one page), and you have some capital ships acting like fighters on some of them (ISD chasing fighters, etc...). The last mission is the only one that offers any challenge.
An exciting battle, a bit too easy though...
Fun battle, playing in a CS position, gives all us low pilots something to dream of.
Zip file download contains 6 missions, but battle is only 4 missions.
