Battle Reviews

And enjoyable and challenging set of missions - a bit on the hard side for me personally, but they were well designed and clearly have a lot of scope for pilots who want to get extra points.

I was both frustrated and pleased with this battle. A mix of emotions. It's a bit harder than your usual cup of tea on hard, so be warned. Challenging and also makes good use of the Missile Boat, which I enjoy the occasional battle with. In the first mission on hard, achieving the primary objectives is easy. Proceeding to kill the enemies for a good score isn't. I enjoyed it, but I don't think it's for everyone.

Only one really bad thing, when an enemy frigate and an enemy Carrack Cruiser mesh into each other. Thankfully they are not moving, so they don't destroy each other. That and a Calamari that is invulnerable (in the last mission) which is a shame. But I liked this battle enough not to drop it to a 4.

I really enjoyed this one, the missions were well thought out, the debriefs had plenty of information to tell you what to do and what to defend. The missions are are for the most part pretty straightforward, the final mission has you go all out on defense so watch out!

A easy four mission battle that takes your through the story of an allied mercenary group betraying the EH.
The mission briefings are of a good quality and are easy to follow. While the officer reports were minimal all the relevant information was there. The missions themselves were easy to complete with minimal thought needed about order of operations.
Plot-wise I did feel as if I was missing something in the early missions and a bit of further setting or explanation would have been welcome. All in all a fun battle to fly.

An easy, average battle that has you flying a missile boat for its duration. For the most part, everything is adequately designed with little to complain about. You'll have plenty of ordnance to handle everything that gets thrown at you. The first mission can be tricky on hard when gunning for points, having you face several waves of craft who launch advanced missiles at you. This does provide at least some challenge for your overpowered craft, but it's manageable. If you intend to destroy everything, this is the only mission where you might run out of warheads, and using lasers on a missile boat can get tedious. The second mission has some suspense as you have a limited amount of time to hunt down fleeing craft, but this can be easily mitigated with the correct warhead choice. The third mission is laughably easy, far too simple and underwhelming. Personally it stands out as the weakest point of an otherwise decent battle. The final mission was pretty fun despite being mostly a turkey shoot. Overall the primary objectives are quick to accomplish. If you like blowing things up with a missile boat, it's enjoyable without being overwhelming.

I found myself having a lot of fun with this battle. It was filled with lots of different things to blow up along with the fact that you get to mess around with Star Tours. I think that idea makes a pretty good plotline even though the plot itself was a bit lackluster. This mission is a bit easy and as a result, serious pilots might want to look elsewhere for a challenge. Also, those of you put off by the Missile Boat would do well to avoid the battle. But for the rest of us this battle is great for blowing off some steam after a hard day. The devastating power of the Missile Boat with a double load of warheads is a great way to wind down the day. I give it a 4.45 (Rounded down to a 4 for purposes of the EH review scale)(Note: My full review is much more detailed. If you'd like a copy, I'd be happy to e-mail you one, but without line breaks it looks sloppy here :) )

Nice battle :D

I liked this battle alot, balanced and very fun to play :)

Great battle I loved it. Its the second Tie battle I have played and I actually beat it without dieing at all, but gotta admit Missle boat is my least favorite ship, they are so slow... :-P

Woohoo! Ford's all-time favorite battle. This is an incredibly fun one. Ford was a bit bored by the drudgery of all the other ones, but this one caught his interest and attention. Brilliant.

A great little battle to play, especially if you love the MissleBoat! It's short length and lack of any other craft to fly are the only things which keep it from getting a 5, as far as I'm concerned. I recommend it!
