Battle Reviews

I was tempted to give this battle a '2' simply because I really don't like lots of capture missions, but that wouldn't be fair to the creator which have made a selection of well planned missions, so a '3' from me - they did feel very similar though, and I can only echo what other reviews have said - some missions take ages, other are over quickly.

Good intentions, but the battle got progressively worse with each mission. Fly it for completion or for the 60% Squadron Remob. I dread the moment I decide to attempt to break the high scores on this battle. There are some forced elements such as an invulnerable Carrack Cruiser, there are better ways to ensure it gets away that feel more natural. This was a recipe whereby the creator just threw a bit of everything in, only none of the ingredients fit.

I enjoyed this one pretty well. I liked the mixed attack/defend of capturing containers and ships in the first half, but once you hop in the missile boat it's just spam kill the capital ships in two missions that could've just been one. Solid effort, and it functions well, so worth a play.

I played on Medium. These missions vary in quality pretty highly if you're just completing the mission objectives. Missions 1-3 are pretty long and took me 20+ minutes on the game timer (probably closer to 15 with fast forward), then Missions 4 and 5 are ridiculously quick. I finished Mission 5 in 57 seconds. Missions 1-3 are basically the same mission; you kill starfighters until they stop spawning and then capture some stuff. Your objectives in Missions 4 and 5 are simply to kill some capital ships and are pretty trivial. I think Mission 1 was my favorite, it was balanced fairly well. The rest of the missions ranged from okay to bad.

Decent, straight forward battle. There wasn't much of a story, but at least there was a consistent narrative that followed through all the missions. Design was a little flimsy, particularly in how they setup waves of fighters. Not very challenging, but not a lot of frustrating over complication either. Overall had a good time.

Lots of capturing. Again, a number of battles that could have been reduced to just one. As for the storyline, it was somehow interesting but could have used more elements of surprise and make the player feel he was actually punishing the pirates. One could expect to hit bases with lots of supply craft, containers, etc but there wasn't much of them here. Nice try tho.

Awful. Obsessed with capturing ships, craft limits frequently topped due to virtually the whole EH being present, and requires things like disabling containers.

This was a very interesting battle, but it had some rough spots that made it hard. For example, the first mission has you killing off a capital ship with no reloader. Talk about a pain. The first mission alone takes you at least twenty minutes just because you have to kill off the capital ship doing laser runs to bring down the sheilds. Similar problems exist in later mission where no reloader is provided in taking out the capital ships, such as mission four that has you taking out three frigates in a missile boat with you two loads of missles and that's it. Aside from that really annoying thing of no reloader, it was pretty good. I enjoyed them, even though the author had a penchant for using elipses. Keep up the good work!


I'm not too sure why this is getting such mediocre ratings. I found it to be interesting and fun.

All I have to say is another great pirate battle, not to hard, loved the dogfighting.

I am getting very tired of pirates. Should use missle boats on this.

OK with this one.

should use missle boats for this battle
