Battle Reviews

Hmmm, oddly done mission, as previous reviews have stated, there isn't much going on here - be careful of the R-41's through, as they have missiles which they not afraid to start chucking at you!

Very easy on hard. Not sure if this is a joke or an actual remembrance of old TC members. Only enemies are a couple transports and 3 R-41s. Don’t bother inspecting all the “coffins” or whatever, there’s no bonus objective linked to it.

This is a strange mission that is easy to complete as you are only facing a trio of enemy fighters at the end of the mission. The funeral story is strange but was probably a in joke when the mission was constructed.

This is a very simple mission, but also very quick and an easy set of FCHG points. It's also one that appears to reference something that took place a long time ago (in the TIE Corps) so I will admit I do not understand the plot. That doesn't make it any less playable though!

This was a quick but fun one. It seemed to be referencing something but I am not sure what, so maybe it was funny but i have no idea about the plot. The mission itself was quick and not too tough, but fun overall and without any bugs that i could detect.

The first time around it was bugged. The shuttle just circled around waypoint 4 for like an hour (15 min at 4x speed). I let it run in the background waiting for something to happen because I was told you need to run it on 4x. Eventually the mission aborded back to the home screen.

I found this mission a little tricky to get all of the bonuses for. If you weren't quick enough at killing a ship, it would hyperspace away, killing your run. The permission content was extremely week for this, unsure if the plot for the funeral was based off another free mission I haven't flown yet. But as a stand alone Free mission, the pre-mission fluff was missing.

Well, it's a "crafty" one. Not much is happening, this mission would probably be better suited if it was part of some greater battle. Some design aspects show deliberation on the part of the designer (in a good way). Fast and easy regardless of difficulty setting. Fly it only for completion points.

I fail to see why people can't appreciate missions that aren't about massacring rebel convoys and killing 200 starfighters. Yes, this mission is totally a Thief: The Dark Project reference. Yes, the mission is completed in 3 minutes without a single shot. But the mission is about a funeral service, what else do you expect? Believe it or not, there are assignments in the Imperial Navy that go down exactly as planned. This is one of them. And after the service is over, you can stay and kill some tomb raiders for the challenge factor. Fair enough.

An interesting mission. One of those, start the mission, go get a soda, come back and your ready to submit it kind of missions.

Good mission if your one of them people that is rite on the edge of FCHG rank and need a free point, otherwise it kinda sux...

I like the idea of it, but there weren't names for any craft

Hey you gotta love earning a free FCHG point for doing nothing :-)

What in the flaming beef was this?! Just sit and watch a SHU fly around, then mission's complete. Only a few bonus enemies afterwards. No point at all. Wlodek's other FREETIE based on the "Thief" game, Lord Bufford's Mannor, is much better. Go fly that one instead.

I am so glad Project Phoenix is back online, because I don't know how this mission made it through. I sat and watched a shuttle go through some movements, hyper out and the mission was over. No, briefing questions, the briefing map sucked, and it was all over in about 3-4 min. This mission wasn't even worth the 1 FCHG point and load up time. Sorry, I must scoff at this one, it was HORRIBLE!

There were multiple times I tried the mission and the first trigger/message never happened. Unsure if it was related to me going to 4X as soon as the game started and immediately changing power settings, or altering speed, or targeting the shuttle which needs to complete its mission.
