I was curious about this one, since Genie said it was very good, it was worth a try. And bless Genie for his review and sharing his thoughts about this mission. It has it all: technical prowess, fast paced action, a high level of attention required from the player, and lots of beautiful details. Flying the Space Cadillac, aka the TIE Defender, is always a pleasure, but in this assignment is a delight. Drake was a wonderful mission creator, and he shows it one more time. Not mentioning, a nostalgic tear was shed of being in my beloved Eta Squadron, alongside Chei-Ras and the rest of the mighty Wing VIII of the ISD Colossus. Do not miss this golden classic.
This mission had a lot of attention put into it. The briefing is immaculate and a good example for others to follow. The mission itself was challenging and for once I was forced to use my wingmen - something I'd like to see more of - to be able to complete it on hard. Otherwise the missile boat you are trying to save is toast. It was a welcomed change. I haven't tried it on easier difficulties but be warned, on hard it is a bit of a challenge in the first few minutes to protect the Missile boat. Another good part about this mission is that should you fail it, the officer actually tries to give you a helpful hint instead of the usual waste of "wiseguy" words.
It's realistic, it gives some challenge, and the briefings are a plus.
Good plot...well, different, anyway. Plenty of friendlies to steal my kills! :P But that's more realistic and easy. The FRG could've had better orders. It attacked other ships, but not me even when I was parked right in front of its guns.
My very first mission I made is also one of the strangest. By my own admission, it isn't particularly stunning.
The FRG doesn't seem to attack me + typos here and there.
