Battle Reviews

COL Phalk Sturm



A very long and dull battle. Almost reaching the level of insufferable. The plot is alright, and the idea of flying an ATR is a good touch, but then is all about taking on platforms with dim witted wingmen and against invincible enemies. Definitely a boring one

GN Anahorn Dempsey



Well, what can I say. A battle which relies so heavily on/abuses this much the invincible craft has to suck. All enemy caps are invincible, so there's no chance of destroying them. friendly ATRs are also invincible, or they'd be destroyed and you'd have no hope of winning. And that's on easy. This is just a very very badly designed contraption.

MAJ Fox Malloy



Great Battle. I rate it a four because while flying the ATR was awesome (thought's of "Bring all guns to bear on target" kept running through my head") it did get a bit repetative. However, past reviews have said the disabling of the dockyard was hard. It isn't, just remember you can target individual craft components. All in all, a good battle.

CPT Serge Broskopf



I didn't think this was an enjoyable battle, because there's no fun in flying the ATR for three missions and seeing the same enemy ships again and again and again. The first two missions were good, but as soon as you're put in the ATR everything becomes boring pretty fast, some missions even to the point of becoming frustrating. Except for mission #8, which kept locking up over and over again as soon as I had completed the mission goals, all missions worked fine.

COL Rau Aznable



You gotta love flying the ATR, it's a lot more maneuvarable than it seems. The use of booster packs is also original, it's nice to see new things on battles. This is original for that, but there are two missions that are really bad. In the second you got to intercept Booster Packs on Kamikaze runs against a disabled frigate while dodging missile firing T-Wings (need I say more? It's grunt work!). The mission where you have to capture the repair yard is too hard in my opinion.

COL TK-7764



The first few missions are great, but the last few stink.

It's about time the Hound went down.

Battle Bug Reports

GN Dunta Polo


General: Battle requires MC-90 and Dungeon Ship patches but this is not mentioned. Enemy frigates are always invincible.

Mission 1: Echo squadron sometimes collide with the ISD Vanguard.

Mission 2: Patrol objective shows as complete before player has reached the final region.

Mission 4: Return to Icarus objective shows as complete before player has returned.

Mission 5: MC-90 Warspite is set to attack all Rebel IFF craft\\stations, including the platform designated for capture.

Mission 6: Replacement fighters aren't numbered correctly, they are all designated '1' (this would be fixed by using Global Unit).

Mission 7: Enemy M/CRV Slasher are both invincible. Enemy craft sometimes attack the nav buoy (because it has Imperial IFF).

Mission 9: Superlaser fires from the planet, not the ISD Vanguard.
