Battle Reviews




Not terrible, but I really don't like when the mission objectives are so unclear. Just tell me what I'm supposed to do - and if not that, at least tell me what the outcome is going to kind of look like. Like maybe 'oh no where did these rebels come from better wipe them all out.' Instead here you get 'What's that?' Sure you have the mission briefing if you watch it, but it's not helpful to know if you're making progress or not regardless. Played on easy, worth it for points at least.

I played on Easy. This mission has Tugs in it, but they're not super awful so I won't deduct points for that. I've been scarred by Tugs before, though. That said, you just kill a bunch of starfighters in this one. The Tugs are unique, but kind of annoying since they have a ton of missiles.

Okay, I had to check whether Frodo made this because it had some humor in it and that's so rare these days in these custom missions. I won't spoil the surprise but you'll probably have a chuckle. Not crazy difficult or anything but a nice variation of the norm that you find in the custom missions. Enjoyed this one.

AD Phoenix Berkana



Quite simply bizarre. Flotillas of missile armed TUG's coming after you before the fighters arrive. The TUG's are definitely annoying but also easy to kill when you get close. As with some of the other reviewers, I'm at a loss to tell you what this missions plot was all about.

COL Genie



Waste of time... Fly it for completion purposes. At least, you don't have to gun down the Calamari! Could have been far more interesting with a tiny bit more effort.

COL Phalk Sturm



Unintelligible mission. What was the point of this. It's quick and easy, I'll admit, but after finishing it I was clueless of what was all that about, the TUGs, the fighters, the CRS. Fly it only for a fast 1 FHCG Point

GN Mark Schueler



Totally unsound plot. Why would: 1) TUGs be armed with warheads 2) Said TUGs be sent against you 3) You not hyper away - no valid reason to not. Combine that with the rediculous difficulty, and you have a poor mission.

It's an honour to have a FREE Mission made about me:) Good work Falcon:)
