Battle Reviews

Hmmm. What to say. Mission 1 can be a challenge, only because the one of a the cap ships hyperspaces out really early, so when you figure out which one, concentrate on killing that one (which is made lovely by being in a unshielded craft with no rockets!) The rest of the missions, are less tricky, as long as you don't go too near the cap ships and are okay at dogfighting.




Nothing spectacular but nothing to really complain about with this set of missions. The second and third are basically copies of each other, and somehow the same cap ships manage to become resurrected to fight another day. You're mostly fighting in a shieldless TIE Interceptor, which is a nice challenge even when played on easy like I did. There's really nothing that stands out about this battle overall, it feels more like a set of free mission just kind of cobbled together. OK for points, just confused why you would play it otherwise.

The last mission was brilliant. Not in terms of design or execution, just very very fun. A gunboat in a candy shop. The rest however were lacklustre and flawed.

COL Phalk Sturm



A spoiled opportunity of making a great battle. Several flaws completely erase any fun in the experience of flying this one. Mission 1 is the classic example of giving primary targets the player can't do much about it, and has to hope GUNs will be accurate enough to sink 3 CRLs and 1 CRS. Of course that going for the turrets in an unshielded T/I is a recipe for disaster. Frustrating as this may seem, eventually New Reps run away like frightened chickens, failing the mission over and over again. Poor planning, this is. The other missions unfold in almost identical lay-outs and look pretty much identical. Finally, the last mission is a mess. You will have to behold a rebel frigate running like a kamikaze into the hangar of an ESC. Definitely this one NEEDED some beta testing, that never happened, clearly. Skip this one, fly it only if you, like me, want to play the entire compendium, otherwise, there's plenty of fun, elsewhere.

Good battle! Only thing I saw that was 'wrong' was in the last mission the VSD Valiant explodes as the MUTT (er, I mean ISD Grey Wolf) rams it...doesn't effect the game any, but it's kinda weird to watch. Anyway, good battle!

CM Ygor Mantis



Nice battle, one slight problem with the .lst file though. It seems Mission 1 dupplicates. No big deal. ;)

AD Adren Silvori



Nice battle ideal for the rookie pilot as its not hard but has a nice story and flows nicely

GN Smitrock



I thought this was a decent battle. In missions 1 and 4 you need to concentrate quickly on the primary.
