Battle Reviews

Straightforward and enjoyable mission, simple and achievable goals -although as other reviews have stated, the cap ship you are attacking seems to have orders not to fire at, well anything, which is odd.

Not much to this one. Blow up a Dreadnaught and inspect a Carrack Cruiser. Some wonky secondary goals to boot.

This one tried to be original, and it did, somehow with the flight group names, and things related to computer life, see operating systems and other, that may sound appealing and humorous, but were completely obscure for uninitiated illiterates like me. Moreover, the mission itself was quite terrible. Boring. At first, using a T/A for a bomb run is not quite the accurate assignment for this fighter, then dogfighting a good amount of missile-armed T-Ws spiced things up, but overall, the mission felt sketchy and unpolished. It failed to deliver the fun to the player, in my opinion. There are better missions out there. Skip this one.

As always any missions is a good mission!!! Thanks for taking time to make it!!! AAAA++++++++++

The Carrack cruiser didn't shoot back; not because the author forgot to give it orders to shoot, but because it had no guns. The turrets simply weren't there! I don't know if that's a bug or what. The plot was kind of sketchy and the game play was slow.

Free Mission Hack Lab

In this mission, you have been placed in a Tie Advanced and will lead four other T/As in an
assault on a Slicer Hack Lab.

The Slicers have been producing code which competes with that created by the Emperor.  We
will not allow any competition and will take the PLT from the Slicers.  Thereafter we will send in
Techs to retrofit the PLT with Emperial code.

The Techs will have some support, which you are to destroy.  We want the lab, check it out and
keep all Slicer support craft away from our assault troops.  If any intrusion occures by the
Rebellion, deal with them harshly.

We need you to lead this mission.  Where do you want to Go?
