Battle Reviews

LT Mosey



Very reminiscent of original X-Wing missions, with pared down craft count, removal of capital ship warhead launchers, and the expectation of using your ship as a multi-role craft. The campaign tells a very nicely contained and simple story. A bit on the easy side (except for collisions--which let's be honest, are usually due to pilot error), but that's a bit more fault of the base game than mission design. Good use of briefings.

LC Aardvark



Flying the unshielded Interceptor is always a blast and this one was FIVE missions. My heart was pounding after each mission! I liked how the missions progressed from recon to escort to superiority to allow you to really wring out the capabilites of the Interceptor. The briefings were short, to the point and informative. I found no bugs here and enjoyed this battle quite a bit.

CPT Solohan50



I played partially on Medium, partially on Easy. These missions are well-made and are a cool display of how TIE Interceptors work inside the Star Wars universe. On Medium, these missions were brutal for me, on Easy they were more manageable. My only complaint is that almost every mission has you fighting in the shadow of an enemy capital ship and you have no shields. These missions are hard enough on higher difficulties without dying out of nowhere from a capital ship. Other than that, it was a cool premise and really showed the versatility of a TIE Interceptor.

LC randyrumrnr



A very well put together set of missions. A fantastic tool for new pilots to fly as an introduction to EH custom missions. the briefings were well laid out and the missions were very well executed. Bonus points for flying a TIE/INT and Rho squadron making a cameo ;) no bugs to report.

AD Hav Antiel



Like others have said before, this is a classic battle in a classic unshielded TIE. The missions are simple and balanced and provided a fun challenge on the hard difficulty setting. The briefings are great and the post-failure hints are useful and specific.

COL Phalk Sturm



This battle allows the pilot to experience the classic unshielded T/I in a Kill'em all rampage. It is certainly very challenging and almost impossible to bring down the cruisers in this obsolete warhorse. I loved it. A word of notice is about the highscores which some seem a bit inflated and unlikely to happen, should someone take a deep analysis into the missions. One of the best battles ever.

LCM Marek Ny`Irfa



I haven't done much of TIE content to this point but this battle excells, which can be seen by very high rating on previous comments. Flying mostly naked T/I is just a classic and I loved the challenge. Even if it was quite frustrating to try and make use of the interceptor in role of an assault craft. Story in the battle is fairly well done and consistent as well. It's really worth giving this one a shot, even if you will have to repeat some missions a couple of times to get them done (the way you want). Superb!

COL Genie



This battle is excellent. It has a good story, a well constructed briefing and a very realistic mission composition, tied in with very good and useful in-flight messages. It's not without its flaws however. The only time you are put under any pressure even on hard is on the very last mission. Otherwise your biggest enemy is only yourself as you overzealously fly too close to those Xwings and Ywings (and their pieces crash into you). Example, the mission before last (m4?), there is only one xwing. Add more, have some pressure on you as the T/I. Also your transport instead of capturing the scientists (spoiler), it captures the container itself. I did like in too many ways and I'm on the fence between 4 and 5, but will give it a 5 for the hard work in polishing it.

GN Doyon



This battle is how you make a good, fun battle. One of the best I ever played. Everything is working perfectly, the briefings are great, it's well balanced and the story is credible. I specially like how the creator made it ''realistic'' by making a CRS and a CRL a potent threat, and taking multiple steps to eliminate them. Well done, a must.

LC Repulsor



Great battle with excellent dynamics, it requires much of unshielded flying skill. Trying to knock out CRS's lasers in a T/I was fun!

CM Matti Kuokkanen



Very challenging battle. Just guess how many times I crashed my T/I against wrecks of X-Ws?

CPT Daar Skeloria



Nice battle, but the last mission drove me completely mad and furious... To lose your engine in mission's last few seconds (CRS hull at 4%) and be blasted by it's lasers...




This is the first battle I've ever flown with collisions turned on... big mistake. :P Overall, I enjoyed this. A definite challenge. I think it would have been nice to be given more to do than shoot little flights of alphabet fighters, but I take what I get.

LCM Travinor Hell



this battle would have been so much easier if i didn't have my fatal tendency to ram things...

LC Quincy Nelson



Nice battle, It is a kool workout.. Of course Nothing's to tough for the inferno sqad..

CM Jodo Kast



Good battle with an interesting plotline. Fun to fly the TIE-I again. Missed the old bugger.

AD Krax Tarnisar



A chance to fly an ENTIRE battle in one of my favorite fighters (next to the T/A)! This makes up for any plot problems that might have existed. A good, bug-free battle that's well worth the download.

CPT Kou Taiki



You fly this entire battle in a TIE Interceptor. This alone makes this battle RULE!

MAJ Veers



A good battle - makes a change to fly an unshielded craft,in fairly varied missions.

COL Dras Hempor



Tons o'fun :) Finished many missions waiting for my flight controls to repair :P As for Dodgers "bug" , you're supposed to kill the other CN's in that FG ,leaving only the one you want boarded ;-)

LT Mitsyashoo



A pretty good battle , and its fun to fly something other then those darn TIE Advanced and Defenders. Shields are for wussies!!!! (I remember that being a quote from somebody or a SW novel, please don't sue me!)

MAJ Dodger



A balanced Battle,but a little bit to easy.

COL Shups



A very well put together battle. Bug free and fairly challenging. Leave it to Freelancer to make you fly in a TI!
