Battle Reviews

A good, straightforward mission where you get to Yeetus Deletus some ships. No complaints, I'm a simple man.

Worth a high rating on the humor alone. A nice, well done little free

I really enjoyed the humor in this mission. It was fun to fly.

This one is really fun, but it's too easy. And I don't like MIS missions. :P

I think this mission lies somewhere between a 3 and a 4, so I rounded down. This battle is interesting and fun in its way, especially as a parody of some of the lesser missions of the Mission Compendium. However, it's a very "one trick" mission. You essentially just SLAM in, SLAM out, and fire your rockets until the mission ends. You can stick around to fight the fighters, but it's not required. And if you try to engage them before you take down the Nebulon Frigates, you start the slow process of getting your shields pattered down to nothing over a long time. It's definitely interesting in it's way, and overall, it's alright, fun, and not too bad.

I'll admit this was an interesting mission, but I was annoyed greatly by the fact that I was promised reinforcements time and again in the initial breifing, only to have that not work. I did finally manage to beat the mission and even complete all the bonus goals, but I'm still trying to figure out the dratted secondary ones! The humorous briefing was interesting, if a little time consuming. I must say the frigates with SLAM technology is an interesting twist, however! Those babies could move! Still, I had to fly this mission over and over and over to finally beat it, and I just got annoyed with the excess log spam over the course of the battle, so I'm just giving this an average score of three.

I found this to be a very enjoyable battle. Excellent use of humor, and the dogfighting was actually fun.

This mission was hilarious and quite fun to play. It's also fairly easy and doesn't become frustrating. Yes, the tricks have all been done before, but this mission comes up with entertaining excusses to use them again. I especially liked the part about villians coming back! :P

Absolutely loved the briefing ^_^ map and officer. The victory briefing and inflight messages were great. Overall this was a very creative mission but it lacked the new ideas that would push it to a 5.
