This battle features pretty much a single engagement split into all of its missions. It somehow resembles in style an original X-Wing campaign where in a few missions you were progressing an attack on ISD. Two negative things can be said about this battle. Three of its missions are very similar, namely those you have to wreck one of the frigates chasing your group. Secondly, the Cruiser and ISD have a failsafe in forms of sith ton of A-Wings and T/As spawning as soon as you land a single hit on them. In the last missions those are very easily manageable (given they arrive in trios) but in one mission I'm pretty sure I saw a full squadron of twelve T/As rushing right after you... Nope... Nop.. No.. *Hypers home* I've certainly saw worse than this though. It's quite long, repeatable but bearable to fly.
Yeah, I think this is the worst battle of any I've ever played... Missions are nothing special, and beating them takes sooo many retries. Way too many craft for the platform. For some of the missions I had to draw up a schedule of when to destroy things so that the mission critical craft appear... not fun :P I've finally recovered enough from my hate of the battle to actually submit my review :P *NOTE* This was before the battle was updated, so don't think I'm nuts for the above review... Trust me, it was hell, I still have nightmares...
I really don't see what is so horrible about this battle that it deserves such a low rating. I had no problems completing the mission. There are obvious threats in all of the missions and they can be eliminated before they pose a threat to mission craft. Although it is not the most comprehensive and interesting battle, and the plot line and structure are not the best, they are not terrible. This battle gets a three. I spent a fun hour blowing up rebels. What more can I ask for? :P
Well, a disapointing battle. IW fleet meets somewhere in space rebels and one space battle is splited to 6 missions with v.poor design...
There are currently no open bug reports for this battle.
