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.
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.
UGH! Possibly the worst of the Birthday missions/battles that I've flown.
Was the maker of this battle an alcoholic? :P Not bad, but not especially fun, either.
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...
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
Overall this was a good battle. The briefings were a little short, however, the missions were kinda fun and the dialogue was excellent.
Not bad...a little challanging but some of the rebel craft seems to just fly around doing nothing.
I wanted to give 2 untill i have reached mission 6.
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)!
There are currently no open bug reports for this battle.
