No where near as good as the hype. This battle features like 6 Star destroyers, 2 frigates and 3 cruisers for the Rebels in 1 mission, then in the next mission, they have like 500 carrack cruisers...the amount of forces the Rebels have is ludicrously high, meaning that this battle takes hours...add to that some stupidly long waits, and you've got yourself a battle that takes a day. Also, I swear that mission 2 breaks the craft limit at some point. Also, what the heck are the Rebels doing with ISDs, VSDs, INTs, T/Ds, T/As and other IMPERIAL craft? It makes absolutely no sense, and this battle is ridiculous in its making. However, cool briefings and variety of craft give it a 2.

I don't like this battle. I HATE MUNARIAN TRANSPORTS!!!! Plus, this level is only really designed for TIE95 users which I am not one of. If you don't have TIE95, don't play this level. The gramatical errors were even more annoying becasue I don't know what the person is saying. And the good old 10,000 waves of fighters. I would have given it a 2, but thanks to the good old dissapearing VSD and dozens of other ships, I gave it a 1.

THE best battle I have ever played!!! Well, if anyone's read my other reviews, you know I usually hand out pretty good reviews(I don't care about subtleties, I just like flying), but if I had to regrade the others compared to this one, no others would get more than a 3. The intensity of the missions kept me playing and paying attention the whole way through. The incredible mix of capital ships and fighters was great, I don't think I've ever seen a mission to equal this one in pure enjoyment value. As to where the Rebels got their T/Ds and T/As, who cares, it added a great challenge to the mission. The briefings were great, better than those in the game itself, and the sheer amount of ships in the missions was unbeleivable. The only reasons I can see not to play this are if you don't have much time, or if your computer can't handle more than the 28 ship limit. Once again, great job Wlodek!!!

I was most impressed with this battle i enjoyed the planets which came with the mission they looked most authentic gave me a sence of realism, the battles if intense were exciting i dont usually write reviews or if i do rate them not usually so high but this impressed me excellent and in regards too an officers comment as too were the T/A's and T/D's came from its obvious where they came from us DUH! probably stolen in raids on out plants thats self explanatory and everyone makes gramatical errors its unavoidable this aint a school.

I was thinking about 2... but briefings DID save the 3. IMHO, It's not a good battle.

I liked the briefing maps but It was a bit OTT with the Capital Ships

A decent battle, but definitely not Wlodek's best. some insane missions (3 MISs v. 1 X-wing?!), lots of grammar errors, insane number of waves, and no reason given for why the rebels have defenders and T/As. i do like the great maps and the goals are quite interesting.

Firstly, awesome briefing maps! They were very professional looking and interesting to watch. Nice use of custom planets in the background, an added bonus for us TIE95 users. The plot was top notch, too! Thorough all the way through all of the missions. And the missions themselves were in-depth, realistic, and creative. The positions of the ships and stations in space were excellent, especially the Imperial base in Mission 4 (the MissleBoat version). There were a few typos in the briefing Q&A, but because everything else was so perfect, I didn't count off. This battle definately deserves a 5, and if you know me from my FREETIE reviews, you'll know I practically never give anything a 5! Good job, Wlodek!
