Battle Reviews

Interesting concept of a 1:1 dog fight. Gets a little cumbersome though.

What is more straightforward than a face-to-face duel? Well, this is it. Face a T/D in No-man's land while piloting a T/I, unshielded of course, with the challenge of shooting the minimum amount of lasers to beat the High Score. Sink the german CRV and mission accomplished. Too simple?, perhaps but a lot of fun if you want to beat the HS and sharpening your aim in the old Spaceshoe, aka Aim-Right-Shoot-Left, the venerable TIE Interceptor. The Red Baron did not stand a chance....

It's a simple concept and yet it's done right, so you don't feel cheated. The challenge of who can do it with the fewest lasers possible also poses an interesting challenge for the future. On hard, this is about evading enemy fire in a shieldless T/I. It's not as hard as it counts as long as you know what to do. Give it a go, it's short and sweet.

It was a simple but interest mission. A 1 on 1 dogfight (with a very funny premise). I like the concept, as it brings me back to the original Wing Commander game when you would fight some of the enemy Aces when they would show up in missions. In execution it's okay, but it's against a tough AI defender, so it takes a bit of time. Good luck beating it on Hard, where your ships is quite out-classed.

This is a challenging one on one mission. I don't reccomend destroying the enemy Corv until after destroying the Red Baron's T/D (or the T/D will hyper out when it's hull is nearly gone).

ok i give this a four for the fact that it's a massive challenge to try knock off the highest score so far. pain in the rear but good fly no-doubt

I liked the idea of flying a T/I, against a T/D, although this mission was pretty easy on medium. Oh well...

Pretty good mission. Simple, yet somewhat challenging and entertaining.

I think this is the only mission where you get to blow up an entire country with a TIE Interceptor.

I actually fully enjoyed this. Taking on a Defender in an Interceptor was a different challenge - and definitely proved how "capable" the A.I. is. ;) ----- That aside, beating the High Score on this mission is also fun. You have to be extremely careful how many shots you take at the Defender. Every burst that misses counts. I beat the High Score when I flew it by 6 points. SIX POINTS! --> Update. High Score theft. We don't like it any more.

Not incredibly challenging, worth the download though. If youre a smart flyer the Baron wont even come close to touching you.

A one on one dogfight with a superior starfighter. Difficulty settings true to their type. I thought it was pretty fun, especially with all the WWI references.
