Battle Reviews

Simple and VERY easy mission, even on the hard setting, inspect, kill a few enemies and mission completes. Kill all the A Wings for the bonus objective!

This mission only lasts a few seconds. Excellent remake of the initial TIE Fighter mission.

This one is a good old fashioned inspection mission that is really simple and quick to complete. Inspect the freighters and disable the special one. Keep your eyes on the capture crew and fight off a few enemy fighters. Easy to complete even on hard but has no bugs.

Very short, straightforward mission. You basically just have to disable a craft after inspecting it then shoot down just a very small number of starfighters. Even on hard difficulty it wasn't that difficult and took only a few minutes to beat. There were no bugs. It was fine - just not overly original or anything.

The Readme along with the Officer Briefing had a very basic overview of the mission. Inspect, capture, defend/kill. The Cloaked figure briefing didn't really add anything. For the mission, if you are trying to go for a high score, there are definitely some tricks since there is not a lot of time between some of the triggers. On the plus side, it is a quick race and if you miss something you haven't wasted a lot of time and can just try it again.

This mission is one of those that started in a very classic, pleasant old-school way, but lack of work in it, made it too easy and too fast. I am not saying it is the McDonald's of the compendium, but runs close to it. Worth a try if you are filling up numbers for RtF/ReMob/or any other kind of activity-based competition, and an easy 1 FCHG point.

Lazy mission, only worth flying for completion points and remob-style competition. It is 20% of a "what could have been" but it is evident this was an attempt at a quick medal grab for making a new mission. At least it has no bugs! Always a silver lining. For future mission-makers, if you are reading this review, just be aware of the legacy you leave behind.

Boring, too easy and quick, with hardly any combat. It's a "I'd like to have a Medal of Tactics" kind of mission.

Simple missions with a good plot. Good FCHG point.

Primarys are very easy, which I dont like, I has simple briefings and maps and a simple plotline but there is some chance to score if you do the secondarys

Things are slow in the EH after the capture of Zaarin. So to get a little action
you transfer to the only active company left: Customs. It'll be club med.
unfortunately for you, soon after you transfered, you station PLT Vistage started 
recieving reports of Rebel smugglers in the area. Your mission is to 
locate and capture any craft with unregistered/illegal cargo.
