Battle Reviews

CPT Talas was a genius. This mission is both extravagant, humorous and exhilarating. The jokes behind every step of the way, make a compelling motivation, just to play it. And it actually was kind of challenge. Bringing down a myriad of kamikazes in Shuttles, was something you probably have not flown before. Dogfight your fingers off in an unshielded T/I with a beam tractor?. If you are looking for something that can make you chuckle, melt your trigger finger and torture your joystick, this is the one for you. CPT Talas, I definitely miss your missions. Wing VIII, always.

This mission is actually a hidden gem. The person who made it has a nice sense of humour. Takes the piss out of most of the missions while at the same time delivering at least a noteworthy mission. I also like the fact you have a choice of craft as a player based on the difficulty you choose. For example on hard, you fly on a shieldless T/I. I got my front and rear mirrors knocked out early on, but carried on, for the heck of it. Couldnt see a thing. But managed to get through. Will circle back for seconds. :)

but don't say I didn't warn you.

About the mission: Before I actually joined TIE Corps I spent some time going through the custom missions and reading the message boards. That one day I came upon a post describing how to change the craft flown by the player depending on the difficulty level. I quickly set about a test mission to do just that. This mission is the result of that experiment and about two weeks of tweaking. It was made while I was still a CT and I've just went over and changed the names to reflect a more Emperor's Hammer feel. Do enjoy.  LT Talas 11/28/01. 

P.S. I understand that some people do not share my sense of humor and may be offended by some of my jokes. If you are one of these people step back and think about it a bit more. If you still don't get it move on to other things knowing you have my pity.
