Battle Reviews

This is a fairly challenging set of missions. They are well constructed and take some time to complete but are good overall in difficulty and length. You take on a variety of different roles and you have a choice to go in with different craft. Some will make the missions a bit better while others it doesn't matter what you choose. I recommend playing it for yourself and experiencing it.

MAJ Jaxx Nassin



Very fun and it was nice to see a story that involved the Vongs. Definitely give this one a try as it has a mix of objectives and isn't constantly devolving into kill all enemies!




Extremely repetitive, not a great variety of ships. The battle tries to carry itself on the story, but the yuuzhan vong have never been particularly interesting honestly. Without different skins there's nothing that feels particularly Vong about these, and it's really just a set of repetitive, boring missions behind the story. Easy enough to finish, but a lot less fun than others. Worth a shot, but not as much if you have other options.

RA Genie



It's a decent battle, but it feels disjointed. Having said that, it is enjoyable and if you can ignore some minor issues, such as an enemy corvette 'swimming' within your ISD, then all is fine.

COL Phalk Sturm



Good battle. Challenging and very fun to play. Player will have to cover a wide array of roles in the usual GUNs or T/As, either for space protection or bombing duties. The missions are well balanced, and although the plotline isn't exactly a source of inspiration for its originality, it's a decent scenario for the forthcoming missions. Worth a try.

COL Brucmack



Honestly I don't see how this got a lot of good reviews... The missions were all basically the same (kill squads upon squads of fighters and several caps, while some other operations might take place in the background), the goals were generally screwed up (descriptions are improper, prevention goals don't fail the mission even if they aren't met), the briefings were poorly designed, and there was apparently no correction of spelling or grammar by the beta corrector.

CPT Daar Skeloria



Nice and plyable. Goob Job, chap! ;) Oh, and if someone makes the coralskipper, don't forget about those huge asteroid cruisers, plz!

MAJ Tek Selkirk



Very good battle. One of the few that I enjoy playing! Believe me, if I review a battle, it was good! :) A couple things though. The missions were well put together and I enjoyed them, but I noticed numerous spelling errors throughout that subtracted from the experience. Someone, please make a Coralskipper patch!

LC Choosh



Excellent mission, I'd give it a five, except that all the mission were pretty much the same

LC Archon



Great battle! The missions were all very similar, but the last half of them you have the option of flying superiority or heavy strike, which makes it more interesting. A good challenge and a compelling, strategic storyline. Lots of grammar errors, but thats a beta testing issue, and doesn't hurt the battle much.

LCM Luca Fett



Talk about a great battle... Its challenging, and the missions mix dogfighting, escort and deep strikes... Two thumbs up!

COL CrimsonFury



EXCELLENT BATTLE FREYSTA! Really enjoyable and well balanced battle. Challenging at times, but all round well done and great fun. I'm making it a priority tomorrow to fly your XvT-CAB#3 battle :) Keep 'em comin!
