Battle Reviews




I kind of don't even remember this one it was so fast, but it was memorable enough to say this: X-Wings. You have some X-Wings to kill, and you have a cap ship to blow. The mechanics are OK then, you're given heavy rockets to do it, but then you're also given Gunboats to help finish off the cap ship. Careful though, there are some X-Wings looking for a swift eject near the end by yoloing your ISD. That might make it difficult on hard, but I played it on easy.

I just went on a rocket run for this one against the Frigate and also killed a bunch of X-Wings. They don't really tell you these thigns when you join the Empire, but how many orphans and widows you make when you destroy a Frigate must be extremely high. Payback for the death star.

COL Genie



Decent dogfight peppered with a frigate for good measure. If you like a quick dogfight give this one a try.

COL Phalk Sturm



Interesting mission. The concept of a revolutionary shield system could have been improved or deepened in the story, and as the FRG the extra-shielded Gunboats were supposed to go back to normal, but they were not. Those GUNs flew like invincible gods until the end of the mission. This should have been corrected. Invincible starfighters are annoying.
