Battle Reviews

CM andr3



After the first two missions I was wondering why this battle is rated so bad. Then missions 3 & 4 are those were you have to do exactly the right thing at the right time. Enemy craft are launched from a cruiser even after it was captured. Then came missions 5 & 6 the same things over and over again. Especially mission 6 has 120 craft coming from the same direction doing the same thing. And don't forget to send your ATR home with CTRL+H or the mission won't end.

GN Doyon



Reviews are kinda harsh about this battle. Don't take the plot seriously, and just enjoy playing an easy battle with the T/D. Last mission should convince you to stay sober for the rest of your life, it's a complete mess but the battle works properly, no bugs whatsoever and it's fun, just far for being the best in the compendium.

LC Gen Es'mith



UGH! Possibly the worst of the Birthday missions/battles that I've flown.

SL Corran Horn



Was the maker of this battle an alcoholic? :P Not bad, but not especially fun, either.

COL Triji Boliv



Not a bad battle, not a good battle either. Little boring, but plot has potential. Last mission was interesting...never seen an ATR pick up a CRS then land in a PLT before...hmm, first time for everything i guess...

SL Kitten-claw



The mission are a good idea, but the mission designing and technical side are very poor, this not a battle one could recommend, to many little bugs

FA Khadgar



Overall this was a good battle. The briefings were a little short, however, the missions were kinda fun and the dialogue was excellent.

COL Zorn Starn



Not bad...a little challanging but some of the rebel craft seems to just fly around doing nothing.

VA Wlodek



I wanted to give 2 untill i have reached mission 6.

GN Sasquatch



No mission maps and no officer questions -- This alone drops the rating by a couple of points. Mission 2 takes FOREVER, and you will FAIL unless you uncover the secret order that you need to attack the ships in. Light storyline that could have been conveyed in about 3 free missions. Still, it's worth flying just so you can listen in as two respected, ranking officers speak Jive to each other (play it through, you'll see what I mean)!
