Battle Reviews

Reasonably well built mission but nothing special.
Works as advertised.

Fun quick free mission. You fly a YT-2000 and decimate the rebels. I really like the story for this mission giving reason behind all the action.

It's nice to change things up. The very good mission briefing promises more than the actual mission holds, though.

A mission that deviates from the norm, and not in a bad way at all. Rarely do you get the chance to fly a freighter in EH battles (that I've flown, anyway), so it's nice to see that this one does that and does it well. This mission would've otherwise been another "capture and destroy" mission if we'd been in a regular fighter.

Great mission. Every time I know I am playing with the Corellian YTs, it's finger itching. And the mission did not disappoint, actually it exceeded my expectations. The capture operation was absolutely brilliant, and this is one of a kind in the Compendium. Do not miss this jewel.

This was a fun, complex mission with multiple moving pieces. I haven't ever really had a need for mag pulse before, but it was fun to see it in action. Excellent implementation of a seldom used warhead. Getting to fly a YT-2000 was cool as well. Great mission!

This mission offers something, different, especially since you are flying in a Correlian Transport. I forgot how overpowered the Aluminum Falcon was. Briefing and inflight messages are competently done. Some ships have unfortunate names, not sure as to why. Above your typical skirmish, enough to earn it a 4.

Not too bad mission to play. I certainly enjoyed flying a YT-2000 again, letting the auto turrets do almost all the work for me. The mission in itself is quite simple, with a tactical approach. I only wish the author made some more effort thinking up the ship names. Something more original than 'Trader' and especially 'Dumb Ship' or 'Stupid Ship'. It sort of kills the immersion. The hyper area where battle takes place is completely dark too for custom shaders.

A cool and original mission, with a very clever plan. This mission is a must for all the Corellian Transport pilots out there.

The Infiltrator Wing needs a rebel cruiser for an upcoming mission. They have approached the pilots
of the ISD Immortal for help. You an a wingman will depart the Immortal flying YT-2000's and head 
to the rebel taskforces location pretending to be supply ships. When you arrive, you must quickly 
disable the cruiser's guns because a Container Freighter packed with explosives will come out hyperspace
and ram the cruiser taking down its guns. Then you must disable it with your ion cannons. Other pilots
off the Immortal will hyperspace in to help flying captured pirate ships. It is imperative that ALL rebel
ships be destroyed. The Infiltrator Wing's plan depends on the rebels not knowing we have one of 
their cruisers.
