Bailknight's Mod V3

Reviewed By Foshjedi2004

Here it is. The Long awaited V3 Mod. I write this just after he announces on PFF that the file was submitted.

You boot up the Game and the first thing you notice is the removed bink movies and the first thing thats meets your Eye is a Massive Space Battle

The Executor is there with an escort versus the rebel Armada.

Playing the Imperials you really notice the strength the rebels now have. You have the Quasar Fire Class with Kwing Bombers that can pretty much defeat most units.

On the Ground I must say for the first time I find it quite challenging. The New Hover Tank for the Rebels is kinda cool to play with. Really gives them some punch. As do the Infiltrators which appear to come in groups.

The Space is tricky. The AI For the Rebels seems to like Spamming Ywings and Xwings. I must have fought about 20 Fighters and 2 corvettes 5 or 6 times on my way to victory.

Overall it does what it says on the tin. Its another amazing quality mod release from Bailknight. My Hat goes off to him.. The Game is a lot of fun thanks to him and I completely recommend this Mod for you to try,
