Battle Reviews

Mainly a dogfighting mission but there are so capital ships involved as well that aren't really too much to deal with. Pretty well put together but also nothing to write home about. Decent in length so its not one of the super shortest, but worth playing nonetheless.

The storyline was interesting and the Dreadnaught was needly placed within the asteroids. So, extra points for that. The mission itself is ok. Let it rain lasers! One tiny flaw is that the enemy fighters are fish in a barrel, which makes it easy to shoot quite a few while they are exiting the hangar.

Classic mission of kill'em all while some TRN docks on a DREAD. Simple as it gets, but never boring, actually it will keep the player on the toes. The waiting times were a bit over-extended, but nothing catastrophic. Worth a try.

This is a good mission, basically it's the usual killl-kill-kill stuff but it requires skills and you have to know what craft kill first so I'd say it requires also situation awarness to be completed on Hard. I've never encountered the bug mentioned in other reviews so I give this mission a 4.

Woulda been a nice mission had the designer remembered he was making an XvT mission, not an XWA one. The battle is really hard on hard difficulty, but that isnt so much a problem. The problem is half the time you cannot complete the mission because of sloppy design. Example: To win, you have to destroy or drive off all Rebel forces. Unfortunately, this includes some Z-95s that, more often than not, never launch because of the craft limit. When the STRKC carrying them withdraws, you can no longer complete the mission. The designer should have had these fighters arrive from hyperspace as an alternative, and this huge, mission fatal bug would be fixed.

Missions lag for me in one thing, a mission storyline. That one is a good "Fly and kill all greenies" mission, I like such stuff. No visible bugs, and being even a shielded TI is kind of challenging. I recommend this one for a short fun mission in between.
