So for a mission I played on easy it definitely lived up to that description. If you pick the interceptor this mission quickly becomes about how fast you can dogfight and let the bombers get through. This battle did remind me of one thing though: never joust in a TIE Interceptor. Not even on a milk run like this.
Good dogfighting mission where you have to render a Mon Cal Cruiser defenseless before your bombers come in and mop up the ship. Decently designed and enjoyable. Really shows how much better Imperial ships and pilots are versus the Rebel scum.
I played on Easy. There's not much to this. Dogfight a handful of starfighters, then your T/B come in and destroy the Calamari Cruiser. I bet this gets awful on higher difficulties if you have to engage the Cruiser in your shieldless T/I.
I havent tried this on hard... yet. Reserving final verdict once I do but I didn't find anything wrong with it. It gets a 4 actually for trying to get a mission going in shieldless TIEs. You also choose whether you want to fly in a T/F or a T/I. I cannot ignore what Yoda and Phalk said, but will wait until I try this on hard. Though I... like hard. ;)
Terrible mission. Unshielded T/Fs or T/Is are totally useless against a CRS (with barely any warheads as well), so it's all about dogfighting for eons and hoping the precious CRS will go down on ISD lasers or whenever a T/B flight is launched. Pointless. Forget about flying this one. A complete rttytrlrrmess.
A poorly executed attempt at a standard ISD vs CRS skirmish. The ship options don't make a ton of sense and there's little effort put into the briefing, description and dialogue. While some attempt has clearly been made to accommodate difficulty levels, the balance is not there and several FGs on easy just fly home.
