A very cool mission in terms of it's story, it stands out since it includes both an ambush (which is believable in terms of enemy starfighter quantity) as well as a flash attack on the enemy base. Fairly quick to fly through but not boring in the slightest.
Less-than-good mission because it became too long and tiresome. The plotline is interesting and it twists promisingly, but then it turned into yet-another-kill kill kill thing. Although entertaining in the beginning it flipped to a tedious seemingly endless game. Fly it unless you don't have anything else to play or looking for a precious FCHG point for the coffers.
I liked the premise of this one. You're flying escort for a ship that is having some much deserved R&R when some stuff starts to go awry. I personally did not experience any of the bugs that were covered in some of the reviews, everything went off without a hitch. Some good old fashions strike and dogfighting. Good mission.
The premise was good. This mission has some promising features and a good attempt at humour. You are out on a recon while everyone aboard the ISD is partying (just target the ISD). Unfortunately, it falls flat on its face on the execution. It was not properly tested and suffers from some major bugs. Funnily enough, it may prove a nice challenge for a high score race. I don't recommend flying this one.
Not a bad mission. It's not really too exciting regarding its story, but there's plenty of dogfighting to make your wrist sore. It has two areas to fight in, out of which I like the first one more. Second is again a relatively large scale battle with a lot of mess going on around. So many goddamn A-Wings here...
It takes about a minute and a half for action to start, and that shouldn't be considered a long wait. Also, the mission options provide you with various weapons and equipment - use them and the mission is a cinch.
It would have been nicer if...well...you didn't die so much. It tends to get annoying after a while. The only way to do it is to go the cowardly way which is just simply not in a Wing XI pilots style
Fun little mission.
A long waiting in the beginning of the mission and then a hard ambush takes away most of the fun in this mission.
The fighter reinforcements are bugged. They only arrive if Ghost squadron takes no losses, and the A/FRG Blaster only arrives if the Immortal is reinforced, which can't happen unless it is a player craft.
