It starts out nice: the first two missions let you feel like part of the mighty empire. it goes steep downhill from there: endless waves of fighters and in the last mission that plus cap ship laser grinding.
I have to be honest. After reading the other reviews, I didn't even try to complete the latter missions fairly - I switched to easy with cheats on. Even still they were annoying. Unless you're going for completion, skip this one.
This is a bad battle, in pretty much every aspect. The storyline is bad; we don't know what's going on, there's no background whatsoever. As pointed out by another review, the briefing screens are minimal. Some stuff said by the officer were taken from the original TIE missions with slight modifications to fit ''the story''.
Talking about missions, they're boring and lack any kind of interest. They don't make sense, as you're always outnumbered even when it's supposed to be a big military operation from the EH against Rebels. They're so hard that I just gave up and took the cheats to beat the last two missions; at that point I just wanted to finish it and get to another one.
Overall, it feels as if the creator thought that his ''tests'' missions that he created were good enough to be an official EH Battle. Wrong. And that's the kind of battle I would remove from the Battle center altogether, as it's just pointless.
First two missions were quite good...the next four...Too LITTLE for our side, too much in paltry waves for the enemy....why use one or two TD when even a single MB is more appropriate?
Fully boring, and unnecessarily difficult. Mission briefings were like 2 screens, and some of the imperial ships fighting with you has rebel callsign. Obviously rushed and not test flown very well. Only fly unless you need to fill your combat record.
First 2 mission were good, not too difficult, but the next four I think somebody changed the medium missions for hard ones!
This battle suffers terribly from the repeating Awing syndrome, with a case of advance missile disease. Mission 6 – needs a complete rethink – why do so many craft commit suicide, and length of nearly 2 hours. This is the 1st time I’ve resorted to unlimited weapons in a TC mission , just to complete the battle. This battle is not one which I enjoyed playing.
This mission was boringly difficult and waves of ships and no help is boring. The last mission took over two hours.
the plot of this battle is the reason this isnt a 1 or 0. it is bordering on impossibly difficult (think waves and waves of a-wings w/ adv. missiles going after you and you alone). the ship limit does not need to be reached in every mission, by the way >:P
