Battle Reviews

Not really sure what I had to do to get the completion on this because the objectives were secret. One of those missions where you just jump in and kill stuff and eventually the screen says you are victorious. That's fine with me and it isn't particularly hard.

It was ok. I kind of liked the nasty nasty Calamari Cruiser. We need more of those! The fact the objectives are hidden from you is a bit irritating but ironically if that was part of an extended battle and with some reasoning behind it, it could have worked. For example Harkov thinks you are the Emperor's Stooge and doesn't trust you.

Not a good mission. I am surprised, coming from Ender, but as he already stated, it was one of his very first missions. The Classified blotting of mission goals was really annoying. Quick 1 FCHG point, I guess it's all the positive part of this otherwise unremarkable mission.

'Classified' objectives don't make the missions better or tougher, just more annoying to fly.

This was my first free mission, based directly on a plotline by Hawkie.. meaning that basically i was trying something I didn't have the skills for yet. *g* It has now been completely rebuild with new orders, goals, briefing, waypoints and everything. I also added the actual Luggage instead of a simple freighter - as it was originally meant to be (but the patch wasn't finished in time). Also I added the original plotline story, which should make it make more sense to the casual pilot. :)

Lot going on, but none of it seems to have a purpose.

Forget about protecting the Luggage, the enemy just ignores it. Same with the targeted frigate, the bomber flight takes it out without any trouble. Its a great dogfight otherwise, just missing some depth because you do little else than blast fighters. Overall, enjoyable if you like a dogfight with some other stuff going on in the background. Also, some dodgy orders on Rouge squadron and the Y-wings. Rouge ignores the player and the Y-wings engage Rouge squadron. Oops.
