This battle almost scored a 5. Up until the 4th mission it was a pretty darn good battle. Not too hard, not too easy, it was a well balanced machine. The 4th mission nuked that. It ruined the battle and the following missions were rather lackluster and couldn’t remove the bad taste in my mouth. Too bad, it could have been much better. I give it a 3.45 (rounded down to a 3 for the purposes of the EH review scale)(Note: My full review is much more detailed. If you'd like a copy of it, I'd be happy to e-mail it to you. Without line breaks here though it gets rather sloppy looking :) )
An excellent battle. The well though out plot makes the missions far more interesting and enjoyable than the standard deep strike/heavy assault scenario which this would otherwise be. Also, I must say that it enlightened me as to the incredible value of the jamming beam.
The plotline (including briefings/debriefings) were excellent, as were the missions. The only anomaly is a sudden jump in difficulty in Mission 3, though effective use of the jamming beam is a big help.
I agree with Captain Janich. This battle was relatively difficult, and time consuming, but not boring. Gallows stayed away from the traditional "give me a missile boat and destroy a rebel armada" type of battle. Good battle overall. CPT Rea
I also enjoyed this mission a great deal. Details make the difference- good briefings, logical plot, and a battle that flowed well from mission to mission. Not too easy on Hard, but not just a "shoot all the bad guys til your trigger finger is tired." Well done overall.
I'd like everyone to have a good look at the difference between CM Troutrooper and MAJ Calzeo Inkwolfs reviews. Are they talking about the same battle? Anyway I thought it was pretty fun. Kill a reb, then move to the next. Classic.
This is the most enjoyable TC battle I've flown yet. Good briefings, interesting plot, a fair amount of variety in the missions. Challenging without being frustrating.
