Battle Reviews

COL Phalk Sturm



An interesting battle. The first mission is certainly tricky and you have to find your 'own' way to beat it. The rest of the missions are fairly simpler, inspect, dogfight and bombing runs. I enjoyed it a lot, especially after I made passed the first mission. Recommendable

GN Anahorn Dempsey



Finally a battle that's actually easy on easy :)

COL Rau Aznable



Very good battle, with some missions that push your skill. Only mission I didn't like was the first one.

CPT Roger



Overall a good battle, the only thing was that You Don't have a Command Ship to fly home to. but have to push the Q to exit the mission.

Battle Bug Reports

Throughout: No commander briefings. Mission 3: Rebel capital ships arrive virtually on top of each other and the platform, causing collisions (especially when they launch their starfighters). Mission 4: Friendly fighter squadrons disengage before all targets are destroyed.
