Battle Reviews

COL Highlander



Very fun, a little difficult to figure out at times

RA Genie



I was debating whether to go for a 4 or a 5. I opted for a 5, because the map briefing is good, the officer briefing and debriefing is also well-made, the actual mission gameplay is great and the storyline engaging. Thus, I do forgive a couple of problems in some of the missions (like some friendly craft having the wrong orders and as Zekk pointed out the Craft count in some missions). All-in-all, I found it an engaging battle. It is a bit generous giving a 5, it is closer to a 4.5. It could have benefitted from some stress-testing and some improvement over AI-skill selection and some of the enemy FGs being harder.

COL Phalk Sturm



This battle could have been a golden classic, but has some important flaws in the making. Missions 5 and 6 are dodgy because of conflicting orders between ships and fighters, additionally some bonus goals can not be completed because of poor planning, ordering some flight groups to stop their mission whenever their mothership goes below 50% hull and things like that. However, the plotline is excellent, and the tactical layout and strategy to win is a hell of a challenge, and will keep any pilot thinking what to do, where to go, as many things happen simultaneously demanding serious quick brains and reflexes in order to complete all goals. If it wasn't for these flaws, this battle would have been in my list of golden classics.

I played on Easy. The content of these missions is mostly good. The first Mission, especially, is challenging unless you cheese it.

Unfortunately, Mission 5 is AWFUL and that's before taking the bugs into account. The designer of this mission must have set the Freighter speed to 1%, because the Freighter literally takes 20 minutes to complete its mission and you can't speed it up at all. I cheesed the mission so that I was done with it in 5 minutes, then waited 15 minutes for the Freighter to do its job. I assume the creator did this so that it's difficult to protect, but in practice it was a terrible experience. And to top it all off, this mission has a bug where the friendly freighter doesn't appear sometimes AND the game crashed on me multiple times at the end of the mission.

On the plus side, I enjoyed Mission 6 a lot, especially after Mission 5. Destroying capital ships is always fun.

I thought this battle was pretty fun but I found a few bugs that were rather annoying that I went ahead and reported. For starters, in mission 2, do not call for reinforcements or it hits a mission breaking craft limit bug that prevents mission critical craft from appearing and doing their job. In mission 5, do not help the TIE Defenders disable FRT Bright. I am not sure why that really makes a difference but when I helped them disable it, FRT Gale never showed up to capture it. I tried again, thanks to the advice of our esteemed Tactical Officer, and just ignored it and then it worked fine.
Overall this was a pretty fun battle with a believable (and hilarious!) plot and very fun missions, enough that I did not mind having to repeat them a few times. ;) It was nice to see some names from the old EH like Darklord and Corran Force.

LT Edward De'Galeon



This battle is great fun with a good story. There are well-designed battles, good briefings, and lots of action. There are some problems with the last missions, but they are overlookable generally speaking. There is also room for a sequel at the end, which is always a good thing if you enjoyed the battle like I did this one. All and all this is a great battle, which I strongly recommend. I give it a 4.70 (rounded up to a 5 for purposes of the EH review scale.)

COL Beef



This battle was pretty good. The use of the "clutches" (aka Tri-Fighters) was a great idea. The story and the missions had excellent set up and a good level of realism. The briefing questions started out formal then developed some humor in the later missions, but they were alway informative and interesting.
