Battle Reviews

An enjoyable series of short missions with an entertaining plot line linking them together.

My hundred and tenth battle in the TIE Corps.

Excellent battle. A gripping plotline regarding spies and double crossing. Gorgeous looking briefings and well laid missions make this battle a true gem. The only flaw I found was in the mission player is supposed to fake the destruction of a R&D asteroid base. Unless you start shooting your own target, the mission will not progress. This could be arranged with minor tweaking, and the whole campaign could become another golden classic in the compendium, until then, I must give it a 4.

I think this is a fairly neat concept that's been let down slightly by the execution. However, the missions that I had the biggest issues with are the ones that have had the most changes in the 2009 edit so I'm going to be less hard on my 2003 self and suggest that in true Star Wars fashion the 'remaster' isn't as good as the original and you'd be better off with a bootleg copy of the classic.

I really do not know what to say about his battle. Not a very good story line, the mission parameters were terrible and I am still not sure as to what really went on. Giving it a 2 because I found no bugs and there is a Tie Int flyable.

This battle seemed like a lot of fun. There were some cool twists where you fly as a double agent and sabotage some NR experiments. I'd like to fly this one again and pay more attention to the details.

t'is cool, t'is cool. I liked alot of the Ideas and it was quite humerous.
