A refreshing 5 mission battle that sees you in the cockpit of an X-Wing starfighter.
The plot is well laid out and flows nicely between each mission and is augmented with high quality briefings and officer reports.
The missions themselves are pretty straight forward and are relatively easy difficulty wise, although mission two did give me pause for thought.
All in all a good battle and well worth a play.
Good battle. The missions are somewhat complex but not overwhelming, just the right amount of craft. It's challenging, sometimes frustrating, but not impossibly hard. Just takes persistence and learning what to focus on. Flying an X-Wing is an interesting experience, particularly the last mission which has the tractor beam too. It's not the most effective craft, with its wide cannon placement, but it does the job. My only real complaint is the flight controls are slightly twitchy in the '98 version, but that's an issue with the Fly Rebels patch and game engine, not the battle.
I think this battle was very well done, in my opinion. The plot was interesting enough to be followed, and the end level had a feel reminiscent of the old Lucasarts levels. If there'd been a few less Adv. Missiles flying around, I'd give it probably even higher.
I dont know what the guys have. The story is a good one, also the empire can run short of fighters and then must improve and increase the stock by enemy ones. Remember the original battle you flew in a TB an escort, same principle. Not a five because the installation of the patch is a patience battle and you need a great commander giving you the right patch. *g*
This battle often makes me feel like a Rebel, because I fly an X-Wing and fight Imperial fighters in a couple of the missions. Other than that, its not too bad... but nothing special.
Great battle... flying the X-Wing was nice, even though it's not my favorite fighter. Might of been on the easier side, but its fun.
My opinion on this battle is its alright for those who wish to fly an X-Wing in Tie Fighter, Nothing really that special, An Average Story line and thats about it :P
A good battle, A great chance to fly the X-Wing, Story and mission set-out was good, Well worth playing
I play Tie Fighter with mouse and X/W was very problematic to control. And later missions weren't cover type, so it was nonsenese to fligh in such dirt like X/W.
I loved this battle!! A great plot, and a chance to pilot an Xwing in TIE Fighter, it was a great battle!
