 This battle is a mix of being pretty good and quite disappointing. I did enjoy flying missions 1, 2, 4 and first half of mission 5... But missions 3 and second half of mission 5 are just mindless "wipe them" battles. With the latter one being optional if you want to get a good score with it. It might feel odd you go out to meet the Fleet Commander in a TIE-Interceptor, as some of the previous comments stated. Though I took this as more "ceremonial" thing. Perhaps no one expected to be ambushed after all. I've had a few retries on mission 3 with a totally random outcome each time.Sometimes Vanguard blasted the cruisers out of the space with ease, sometimes it went down. Then there were the three frigates which sometimes caused trouble. Or one of the cruisers escaped. This one was really a mess that felt was not dependent on what the player does. Overall, you can fly it once then best just forget it.

 This battle is both straightforward and tricky to complete. The first mission is somehow frustrating and as the campaign unfolds you will face the poor choice of player's craft, the author allowed to use in this otherwise mediocre battle. Again, another botched attempt to recreate the past of the mighty ships that completed the EH in its former glory. Just fly it for FCHG points, it's not worth a re-fly.

 Another very straightforward mission. It's frustrating when mission require you to fail, like Mission 1 hinging on the capture of Ronin. Aside from that, the missions are pretty quick and dirty and you're typically assigned an appropriate craft and armament.

 A few other reviews have stated this, but I found the whole scenario pretty implausible. We have TDs laying around but we send out TIs with no missiles to escort the leader of the EH? Feels flimsy. That kind of implausibility stayed in the whole story, and made it a little hard to enjoy. Mission design was ok, nothing tedious, but not particularly novel.

 Dissapointed.First mission: the GA Ronin come to visiting the ISD Vanguard and the Commander Assigned 4 T/I as escort!!!;Which kind of commander can issue a demential order of this type?Yamamoto was escorted by 12 A2M2 Zeros in the moment of his death and was also de Commander in Chief of the IJN. A little more of logic, guys,a Squadron is the minimum;or maybe GA Ronin is not important to the fleet?

 It was very challenging. But I think the errors in it need to be fixed.

 Some of the mission goals are misleading, the story line is rather shallow, and combat could have been defined just a little better. There also seems to be something wrong in mission 5 – half way through the mission all the friendly starfighters pack up their bags and go of home. Still it was fun to fly

 Nice battle with several annoying features. Playing on 'hard' can be very tough (impossible) which effectively reduces the scope of the battle. Mission 1 goal is misleading, and mission 4(?) gives you negative points for no reason (destroyed wingmen). There are also several missions in which the player gets a basic and inadequate fighter for a demanding job.

 Above average mission design is marred by a lack of storyline and horrendous briefings and debriefings. The design is nice, providing a good challenge by outnumbering the player, but making sure the enemies attack in waves. Forcing the player to focus on mission objectives while being harassed by enemy fighters is always a good feature,and was implemented well in this battle. Worth the download if you don't care about story too much.

 Nice combination of dogfighting and cap ship fighting, but story was a little weak. No problems with anything in the battle, a nice workout :)

 For me as a beginner it was a good battle. A lot of dogfights (good training) , but it might have got a better plot...

 Well, the plotline is not that great, overused even, but you can get some nice dogfights there.
