Basic mission about attacking some CRS while taking on her complement of defense fighters. Simple as it gets, it is however quite challenging, both sinking the ship as well as wiping off the alphabets which come in all kinds of roles at you, fighters, bombers and superiority interceptors. Worth a try and an honest work's point of FCHG.
The fact that right from the beginning there is no briefing at all, says everything you need to know. Terrible mission. You can just run around and let your wingmen do all the work. Mission is over as soon as it starts.
So, I write this review having not completed the mission purely because it's awful. There is no point to it, no effort put into it, and no joy to be derived from it.
Not great - no story or really that terribly much to do, took 4 minutes from loading it to being complete. That being said there are a lot of ships to shoot and you can roll your own load out which keeps it from being not worth playing.
I completed this mission before I could even charge my shields up to full strength. The funny thing is, the creator may have taken even less time than that to create it. No briefing, no real commands for the craft, especially the Calamari Cruiser that sits there like a duck in a carnival. At least the ducks move. It didn't even fire back and without some kind of story to at least draw you in, the blunt gameplay is made even more tasteless. Unless you plan to challenge for the high score, avoid playing this one, waste of time.
If I wanted to fly a skirmish battle I would fly a skirmish battle, and sadly this is all this mission is. Only executed worse, perhaps. It was quite a challenge still, but technically this mission stands out from the rest.
No animated briefing - no commander briefing - how did this ever get approved?
If like lots of targets to kill and nothing else then this is mission for you. One point those targets shoot back!
this was the easiest mission i have ever played, all your mates kill the others ships for you and you get heaps of points for it! :-)
good potential and poor execution...Saving an interdictor is a good idea, but being the sole survivor of an attempt is pretty bad. Difficult, yes...until you figure out how to kill these ships one at a time. After that...it's just a patience game.
The worst XWA mission I've yet to fly. it is quite difficult yes, but also has no story to it, just shoot and you're bound to hit something. It's yet another mission that makes no use of lighting... It's like flying with a blindfold when there are no lightsources as in this one.
It's hard, you are attacked by missle carrying A-Wings, and torpeado carrying X-Wings and B-Wings. There a lot of fighters to kill, the points add up quickly, especualy if you get the cruser. Over all, a good mission, but a little on the hard side.
The only reason I give this a 1 is because of the difficulty. I'm rather embarrassed that I actually sent this in... I promise you all my next submission will be much much better... =)
Like you say Demps...how did this get approved? No briefings, no debriefing, no hints, no radio messages...oh, and the Challenge sits there like a lame duck.
