Blue Planet: The Battle Captains
This is addictive and engaging. The difficulty's in exactly the right spot and it's fun to try out different tactics... - I like how the situation incentivizes you to get right up close with the Leviathans and eat their hurt in the name of keeping the transports alive. Narrative-gameplay assonance!
This mission feels very FS2. It does a great job of capturing the gameplay atmosphere - the slower ROF and more direct tactics. And I loved the little bits of narrative. The failure debrief in particular will certainly be provocative to certain Steele fans
Blue Planet: The Battle Captains tells to story of two the great battle captains of the age, whose commanding prowess has shaped the war in Sol:
-Anita Lopez and the GTD Carthage cover the GTVA's retreat from the nebula, while holding back overwhelming Shivan attacks.
-Cyrus Severanti captains the GTCv Steadfast, defending Luzon Station from an NTF assault, staying in command despite heavy personal injury.
