Battle Reviews

I HATE missions where I fly capital ships...but at least in this one I am in range of the enemy and not constantly trying to get into the fight like in some others

Interesting to steer an ISD. Wouldn't want to do this every day, but it is a nice change for once. Don't stay in the mission for too long after you get the victory message (because it is so much fun to blow things up). You can still fail after you have won if two many imperial ships are destroyed.

A gem. This mission has nothing to do with the TIE Corps, skip it if you want the usual pew pew in a flying space moth. But if you need something different after years of intoxication, this is your thing. Feel like Captain Piett, commandeering the mightiest of all ships, the Imperial Star Destroyer. And there's actually a lot to learn, how to improve angles so the laser turrets concentrate fire, how to veer efficiently, speed and power management. It's a whole new different game. And this is the perfect mission for that. Sink frigates, corvettes, cruisers. For the glory of the Empire.

Guilty pleasure Mission. Lots of capital ships from both sides, lined up and exchanging barrages of lasers. It felt the same way the Deathstar was lining up before it would destroy Alderaan. Just remember to recharge your shields The mission itself is not really that great, but it's one of those missions attempting to have you pilot a capital ship and at least in this one, you get to shoot... A LOT! Rip those Calamaris and Frigates to pieces.

Very funny mission - a kind of battleship dogfight. Liked it a lot. Just sometimes wanted to go out and kick the ISD that it flyes quicker :)

A little different, but Ender made it work.

Woo!! Monstruous Ships make monstruous battles!! But with a little patience to play, of course, on that monstrous, slow CapShips.

My second SP experience with Cap-Ships. Much better than "Clearing the Way for the ISD Intrepid" free. Got 83% enemy forces destroyed. A great free.

Good mission. It's always fun to command an ISD. :)

That battle was AWESOME! So many ships, so little time, 71% destroyed! I love the ISD. Make one with the Avenger Task Force so we can use SSD, ok Ender? Better yet, make the SSSD against a huge NR fleet.

Nice and relaxing mission, it's fun to kill all those cap ships but there are no backdrops or light sources and AI of enemy ships coul have been better.

This mission is part of a series of free missions about each of the squadrons in the ASF doing 
missions following their squadron objective in their assigned craft. Each mission tries to give
a feel and a bit of history of each of the Squadrons. All the storylines of the missions are
interconnected and have the ASF Squadron join together against a common foe.

Story Line
In this mission you will have to preform the task of an Admiral: lead the full Aggressor Strike Force 
against a Rebel fleet of equal size. The fighters have al been used up in the earlier missions and this 
means it will be just fleet vs fleet. Either one will have to break off if you get enough of the killed 
- make sure its not the ASF.

You need the XWA (or at least all the ships involved there), as far as i know
no other patches are needed.
