Battle Reviews

CM andr3



the ultimate laser against cap ship grind. no story, no sense, no fun, buggy mission briefing, wingmen commit harakiri and leave you alone to do the rest.




I'm glad other reviewers had explained what happened with this battle. It would not make any sense either plotwise or gameplay-wise why anything happens. It seems like it could have been at least a 3/5 if the correct ship was available, but without I have to give a pretty poor review.

SA Compton



Here's the reason why this Battle sucks so bad: Back when it was first created, there was a modified X-Wing called the Excalibur. This ship was supposed to be the Infiltrator Wing's answer to the T/D. But soon after the Battle was released, the patch for the ship itself disappeared. I tried for a very long time to track it down was I was TAC, both in my own archives and by bugging other EH folk, but the ship doesn't seem to exist anymore. So we're forced to fly this crappy Battle in a normal X-Wing, which is NOT the way the missions were designed.

It was a bit frustrating to chase T/D´s with a X-Wing. Nevertheless I think this battle is ....... OK. Nothing outstanding, but not that bad either. The story could be more detailed. For example I wonder why the EH should buy X-Wings when it has T/A´s and T/D´s. And I´d like to know more about those rogue imperials.

o my god ! it is long i have played so stupid battle ...x-wing against t/d who are we rebs or imerials? beware of that battle

X-wings v. T/Ds? Not even close, T/Ds win every time. This battle is VERY Difficult. Even the seemingly easy last mission is hard.
