Battle Reviews

Pretty fun missions! I may have encountered a bug during mission 4, where the assault transports kept capturing the platform. Not sure if that's intended.

Nice group of missions, which were well designed and had some challenges. The mission design made you think about your targets, and plan, and this was, at times, a challenge. Well worth playing. Some missions, even on easy were challenging. Hint: in Mission 3, take out the cap ships first!

Briefings that don't give you any useful information and some oddities around orders (more than one CRV has starfighter orders) drops this to a very average 3/5

Enjoyable set of missions with a satisfying conclusion. My only major criticism is that in mission 3 (I think) where you have to disable some freighters, the capture ships aren't set mission critical so you get no warning if they are attacked/destroyed and no fail state, leading to some sitting around trying to figure out why the mission isn't progressing.

I played on Medium. This was a decent set of missions. You can tell this was an early, custom TIE mission as the mission briefings are pretty useless. The mission objectives can sometimes be obtuse as well. That said, the missions were decently varied. I laughed at Mission 5 because the objectives are simply to kill a bunch of starfighters and the creator put in a line of dialogue stating 'Leave the capital ships alone, we'll attack them later'. They clearly didn't want you to cheese the level by killing the capital ships. When all is said and done, this mission is decent.

I do not know why, it felt longer then six missions. Might have been do to being sick. One of the missions toward the middle however, the decoys freighters was tedious until I remembered the goal was the Corellian Corvette's not the fighters. Otherwise a fine enough middle range mission.

Yes, excellent battle. Could've used a bit of grammar here and there, some more detail on the briefings but all in all, very fun to blow lots of stuff. On last mission, it could have used a lot of drama and not just letting the frigate be captured just like that after you kill all hostiles but overall, 5/5

Yes, excellent battle. Could've used a bit og grammar here and there, some more detail on the briefings but all in all, very fun to blow lots of stuff.

Nothing really original, but also nothing very annoying in this battle. BTW. Should you have problems with the shuttles crashing into the SSD, order them to go home (Shift+H).

Just like everyone else has said, lots of blowing up stuff. Great fun :P

The plot wasn't really there, but you can't argue with blowing up a bunch of stuff.

Nice story line, stuff to blow up..yes some problems minor things that didn't make it a 5

How would you say it in spanish is it "Excellente"? anyways that is just what it is. I very rarely ever give any battles a 5, but I love destroying thing, and I loved the plotline!

This one was excellent, almost as good as Lucasarts-missions! However, the few design flaws lower the overall rating. (Some messages come too late, and I think I saw one starship with starfighter orders?)

I agree with Colonel Kessler on this. An excellent oldie. Also Project Phoenix really paid off, as you can see with "Pirate Uprising."

Quite nice battle actually. Fly it!

A great battle..well designed, Instantly playable, not to tricky..I loved it

An oldie, but a goldie. Excellent work revising this battle by AD Striker and the Project Phoenix crew.

Battle Bug Reports

CM scottrick


on mission 4, the assault transports captured the station several times when I'm guessing it was only supposed to happen once.

VA Robert Hogan


On Mission 3, the freighter 'Malcontents' jumps to hyperspace at the start of the mission before you can get in firing range, failing the objective to 'disable all freighters' almost instantly. This behavior was seen on all three difficulty levels.
