Write a 1-star JAD review!
Ever since I released JAD all the way back in... 2004... (Oh god, I've wasted my life), a lot of people have said some very nice things! I don't think I've ever seen a really negative comment related to JAD...

Well, I think this needs to change!

I challenge you, people of HLP, to write a review about JAD about how AWFUL and BAD it is. Attack the campaign, attack the FREDder, attack the awful jokes! Attack everything! I want to show this to myself 7 years ago to make him give up on FreeSpace and give up on life! (Cutting out this post setting the context of course)

Never played JAD? No problem, make something up!

Still can't bring yourself to hate on JAD? Pick one small annoyance and make a 400 word post about how it ruined everything!

Here's some inspiration:

Re: Write a 1-star JAD review!
Well, I mean isn't it the point that it's bad? If I say how bad it is you can just just say 'that's intentional and therefore good.'

So I mean really, given the formula, it can only be good.

There's no tricks! I will not respond to any post! There will actually be a point to all of this, but I require awful awful reviews.

 
Re: Write a 1-star JAD review!
Your use of disco music is an affront to all that is decent.  Every time it played I felt the desire to stab my eardrums out with blunt Q-tips.  I give JAD 1 star, and would give it zero stars if this scale went any lower. :no:

Re: Write a 1-star JAD review!
JAD3, when I first played it, was broken beyond belief! That mission with the unfunny Hecate squad of...whatever the **** they were. The whole mission was on noclip. Nothing would collide! I thought it was intentional until the directives told me to kill something. Normally. Its a little known fact that its hard to kill something without being able to hit it unless under special circumstances. Turns out that someone forgot that using set-object-position on every-time breaks all collision, that's just how the engine works! Only a moron would forget that! All the testers for it sucked too. Hell, I doubt it was even tested seeing as there's a mission that can't be completed (without '+k ing everything that needs to be killed). The only way something like that should ever happen is if that mission wasn't even played before release!

At least it was hack-fixed in the collectors addition, so +1 (yes I give 0 stars)

Total is...

1/5

1. Scrap the retarded FRED jokes. In fact, remove all of the FRED references altogether - it's ****ing gay. Also I recommend you stop liking FRED period, you'll be a much better person for it and if you're lucky all the cool kids will stop picking on you.

2. Drop the retarded jokes. If you are having trouble telling which jokes in your campaigns are retarded, here is a handy guide: All of them.

3. Stop blatantly ripping off Freespace 3: The Search for Bosch. You disgrace its good name.

4. Add Gargants. 'Nuff said.

There, I hope you found this useful. If you follow all of my advice, I'm sure JAD 5 will be an overwhelming success!

Re: Write a 1-star JAD review!
All the JAD campaigns are complete garbage! They have exquisite mission design, engaging plots, memorable characters, great music selection, and in this latest installment, inventive custom weapons. "But red, those are all good things! How can you say they're garbage?"

HOW?! I'll tell you how. Because all this work is squandered on silly jokes and anime references! Freespace is a SERIOUS game. When I sit down to play FS, I'm not doing it to laugh and have fun, I'm doing it for the dark, gritty, and mature gaming experience (for mature gamers such as myself). Instead what do we get? "Wheeeee, I'm going to pour years of my life into making disco jokes and references to ****ty chinese robot cartoons that don't even make a lick of sense." I mean bloody hell, the last JAD wasn't even original, it's just a copypaste of that retarded Evangelical robot cartoon everyone seems to love so much.

A complete waste of talent and effort. Zero stars. Thumbs down. 0/10, etc.

PS: and don't try and use VD (aka Venereal Disease! HA!) to prove me wrong. That was nothing but a bunch of pretentious hipster nonsense...

Re: Write a 1-star JAD review!
Okay, I’ll be completely honest: I never understood the hype surrounding these campaigns. I’ve held my tongue so as to avoid causing unnecessary drama, but now you say you want criticism, so here goes.

We start JAD1 aboard the GTD Sasquatch, a Hecate-class destroyer with a nameless captain. Nameless superiors are par for the course among B-list campaigns, so I’ll let that slide, but the name “Sasquatch” really clashes with the established naming convention. There’s some mind-numbing repetitive gameplay involving shooting Shivans, and then Command decides to send you through the Knossos—at which point you start talking. Yeah, FS1 and FS2 worked just fine with a silent protagonist. This? Not so much.

We jump through the Knossos and are confronted with…ourselves. That’s right, the Alpha 1 from another universe! This has some interesting storyline potential. Only instead of using Alpha 1#alternate or even the Alphaÿ1 trick, Axem…tries to put “Alpha 1” in 1337 and hope we won’t notice. Lazy FREDing at its finest. Then “4lph4 1” dies. Seriously. That’s it.

Quantities of supercapitals reminiscent of SGWP2 slag each other with beams for a while, then a new Colossus jumps in and immediately collides with a Sathanas, destroying both. Command makes some off-the-cuff comment about how at least this one destroyed the sathanas.

Axem…THIRTY THOUSAND PEOPLE JUST DIED. That is NOT how command would react.

Eventually (my memory is rusty here) we meet “Fred” who is some kind of god or something. He uses the Bosch headani. Crappy attempt at reproducing Q from Star Trek as far as I can tell. Some disco music that completely ruins what’s left of FreeSpace’s atmosphere plays on a loop. We blow up Fred’s asteroid, and then in a later mission we’re supposed to dogfight him. However, we’re given an unmodifiable loadout that makes what you’re forced into in “A Game of TAG” look like the GTF Mara with dual Kaysers and two banks of Trebs. This is where I stopped playing.

JAD 2 and 3 were pretty much the same campaign as JAD1 with a couple unimpressive gimmicks thrown in. At a couple points, Axem tries to ape Darius’s success with Corey and Taylor by giving our wingmen distinct personalities. One is a zombie who looks suspiciously like a Vasudan. The others were the so-called “n00b squadron”. Each had exactly one defining characteristic. To say that these guys were flat would be an insult to paper. Also, the JAD2 campaign file was broken: one of the missions pointed back to an earlier one, creating an infinite loop that made the campaign impossible to complete. Obviously no beta-testing at all. There are points where these campaigns are so bad that I almost wonder if I’m playing a parody.

We get a few years of blessed reprieve from this drivel, then someone called “QueenHolley” shows up and posts a couple thoroughly uninspiring missions about an NTF saboteur stealing a Ravana. I guess Axem falls in love, because the protagonist of his next feeble attempt is named “Holley”.

Okay, this is creepy as hell. Axem, this isn’t going to get her to have sex with you.

I’ve kept playing each new JAD campaign out of morbid curiosity, but I’m afraid I lack the intestinal fortitude to try Vassago’s Dirge. I will, however, finish by reviewing one more campaign that demonstrates Axem’s abject failure as a FREDer.

That campaign is Blue Planet: War in Heaven.  “But,” I hear you protesting, “WiH is the best campaign ever made for FS2!” Well, I won’t argue that point, although it is my personal opinion that WiH will never stack up to the 12 years of expectations built up around BWO.

But I digress. The point I’m trying to make here is that the overall very high quality of FREDing in WiH makes it transparently obvious which parts Axem smeared his feces on. Specifically, the end, where after you destroy the GTD Carthage (I had to ~k it because the Karuna lag made the mission unplayable, but that’s not really Axem’s fault) A SATHANAS JUMPS IN.  Completely out of nowhere, there is a SHIVAN JUGGERNAUT JUMPING AROUND SOL, named “Mr. Cuddles” and with horrendously jarring theme music. This is a plot twist worthy of M. Night Shyamalan. I ~k that, too, because the player is not given access to weapons with the supercap flag despite needing to single-handedly destroy a Sathanas to complete the mission. I jump out, get my debriefing, and discover that nobody seems to give a **** that THE SHIVANS ARE APPARENTLY IN SOL NOW. Yeah, it’s pretty obvious which part of WiH Axem was responsible for.






Also, Shadows of Kraken was ****.

Re: Write a 1-star JAD review!
Just Another Day, really the title says it all. Are we playing a game or getting kicked in the head? If I remember correctly, though it really is hard to with such an erratic plot,  Alpha 1 is put in a post Capella situation where he must single handedly stave off the GTVA's woes. No, not GTVA first fleet, not the destroyer you are stationed on, not even a covert ops squadron no...  any of those options would make too much sense. Alpha 1 is the sole combatant sent into a fight, if you can even call the situations you are thrown into 'fights'. Really it's just chaos, things happen until the developer is done torturing you and the mission ends.

The plot is nonsensical and is best ignored to maintain sanity, so let's move on to gameplay. Do you like fighting sporadic waves of retail grade fighters to the backdrop of random antics? Do you like doing that for hours? Well, this is your campaign then. Unfortunately, the more refined among us prefer a little more. Oh JAD does try mind you to make it seem like something different is happening every time. You will be fighting fighters in front of Orions, Deimos, Ravanas, and a robot assembled manually from all of the ships previously listed. I'm talking about ships placed on top of one another until Dr. Frankenstien mission designer came up with something that looked like a humanoid floating in space. This  robot... no wait... this monument is comprised of randomly assorted filth, much like the campaign itself. And throughout this entire freak show you are mostly expected to just sit and watch the developer's madness unfold. It's amazing for as much as the GTVA is supposedly relying on you to save the day that you are actually doing nothing the whole time.

Ok so gameplay is non-existent and the plot is overwhelmingly bad so what's left? Music? Do I really need to get into the music?  Disco quickly faded from fad to relic in short order, and for good reason. The developer is well aware of the faults of disco as some of the characters in the campaign actually attempt to use it as a weapon against the player. Let me generalize by saying sir that your campaign itself is a weapon against the player, which made me ill at the thought of how outrageously terrible it was. This campaign is rated with one star out of sheer pity for the whelp that could think such filth was worthy of another human's time.

Re: Write a 1-star JAD review!
Just Another Day. Where to begin? Why, at the beginning, because it was at the beginning that this conglomeration of faeces began to smear itself all over HLP culture. But where was the beginning? Upon release of JAD1? When Axem finished the first mission? No, my friends. The beginning occurred at the moment when the idea first entered Axem’s primitive mind, which brings us to the source of the problem: Axem. This subhuman specimen has been a HLP member since 2004. That’s almost 8 years of his infection vomiting all over this honourable forum. Let’s just look at what this thing known as Axem has accomplished in his time here.

Shadows of Kraken: Typical first campaign. Nothing to see here. Horrible, but that was unintentional as everyone tries to make a decent campaign on their first go.

Just Another Day 1:
This was obviously a blatant ripoff of and an attempt to one-up Deus Ex Machina, which was made by the mighty Goober5000. I mean, look at how close the release dates were! The main antagonist is called “FRED”. I mean, really Axem? Really? Could you not think of a name while you were spastically ctrl-clicking in FRED, look up at the top right hand corner of your screen, see “FRED” and decide to use that? I think that having FRED be the god of some dimension was meant to be a clever reference to how you can use FRED to control the FreeSpace universe. Sorry Axem, but that was lost on everyone. Any player with a modicum of sense would have just thought of the mission editor, immediately drawing their minds away from the game. Congrats, Axem, you shattered the immersion right there. Oh wait, what immersion? I forgot, there is none! It’s clear that Axem learned nothing from the miserable failure that was Shadows of Kraken, because this time it looks like he intended for JAD to be horrible, whilst branding it a “parody”, which was probably done after the campaign was released and Axem realised that nobody would take the random typing of a retard into the briefing window combined with a few ctrl clicks and maybe one or two directives (with attempted jokes in them!) as an actual campaign. Did you really think us so brainless, Axem? That we wouldn’t see through your piss-poor attempt to engage the player? Sorry, but for that you need gameplay. You know, that phenomenon that makes a game interesting, let alone playable? You had none of that in JAD, Axem, and your (probably unintentional) attempts at humour (which failed, by the way) did nothing to remedy it. And don’t even get me started on the goddamn disco music.

Just Another Day 2: Electric Boogaloo: Okay, the name right there should ring alarm bells immediately. Electric Boogaloo? What the ****ing ****? Here, let me try to approximate your line of thinking there, Axem: “Oh, it’s been a year. Surely everyone’s stupid enough by now that they’ll find me funny? I should include a completely retarded name in there for u1tr4 1u1Z!” I don’t see how anyone could justify using such a name with any other method of thought. Let’s move on to the campaign itself. The antagonist? FRED2. Very clever, Axem. Oh wait, it’s not. It’s about as stupid as the original FRED. I’m not even going to expand on this because I don’t want to have to hit something out of sheer disgust. Let’s go through the list: Recycled jokes? Check. Nothing more to be said here. Lack of playtesting? Check. There’s an infinite loop at the end of the campaign. I don’t know if that was actually meant to be funny or whether Axem accidentally the campaign file, but it was stupid nonetheless. Any halfway decent FREDder would have picked this up. More retarded music, this time in the form of YMCA? Check. I guess Axem thought it would be entertaining for us to see FreeSpace ships used as letters with music in the background. How many times do I have to say it? We want gameplay. This is a game, not a movie, not a TV show, not a goddamn children’s book! Do you have any idea what differentiates a game from other forms of entertainment (if you can call this pathetic series of missions entertainment)? It’s the interactivity. The involvement. The player has to do stuff! Yeah, I know! How revolutionary! Yet Axem seems to have completely missed the point as he continues to include such gags as the YMCA sequence in the sequel.

Just Another Day 3: Shivans on a Plane: Right. The third instalment. At this point I’ve gotten a headache just from having to think about this series of campaigns enough to review them, but the world must be informed. Actually, you know what? **** this one. I’m moving on. Let’s just say that the only positive thing about the third part was the small sliver of hope that Axem was finally done torturing us and that the series was over.

Not so, it seems. We do get a few years of merciful silence, but then someone called QueenHolley shows up and posts a “campaign” so horrible it’s worthy only of Axem. Oh wait, that’s because she is Axem. I don’t have the faintest clue why the majority of HLP has been keeping up the charade that Holley is in fact a distinct person, but I’m going to go ahead and bring the truth out right now: Holley is an alternate account made by Axem. “Why though?” I hear you ask, “Why would Axem create a new account under a different name?”
Why indeed? Perhaps it is simply the result of Axem’s longing for young girls that he had to create an account to represent a fictional girl (which, might I add, is the only type of girl he’ll ever get, being such a failure)? Perhaps Axem genuinely has a multiple personality disorder, which he insisted on carrying through to the internet (if he is genuinely mentally affected, it might explain why he can’t seem to pull off a decent mission, let alone a campaign)? Or perhaps he was trying to salvage his reputation and, by releasing a campaign under a different name, not have its inevitable failure attached to his record?
Whatever the reason, Operation Ressurection (note the spelling mistake) was indeed a failure. Axem (in the form of QueenHolley) himself states that he “had no time” to spellcheck or beta test. Yeah, thanks, we figured out that you didn’t test your **** all the way back when you released your first campaign. This one didn’t even have a campaign file, it was just three missions. And you “had no time”? The internet doesn’t have deadlines. No one knew it was coming, so you could have gone and tried to polish it a bit, you know? “Nah, no way”, thinks Axem, “also, I’ll release it on April Fools’ Day, so that if it goes to **** I can claim it was a joke!”
Well, that’s what its description claims to this day. Nobody’s fooled though. We all know you tried once more to make a serious campaign and as usual learned nothing from your past “accomplishments”. At least you were smart (in the loosest possible meaning of that word) enough to abandon your idea for a 40 mission campaign and stopped after the first three.

Just Another Day 2.21: You Are (Not) Alpha 1: And yes, the most recent part. Axem shows us how deeply he hates the idea of beta testing his campaigns with the main antagonists being Beta Testers. Yes, that’s right, Axem can’t keep his utterly idiotic notions to himself, he has to go out and try to convince everyone that beta testing is bad. Perhaps he thinks that if everyone stopped beta testing his campaigns might have a slight chance of being ranked somewhere other than the bottom? Not going to happen. But that’s not the only aspect of his depressing personality that Axem throws at us. He keeps up the QueenHolley charade by naming the main character of the campaign Holley. We don’t care if you’re going to be single forever, Axem, we really don’t. We’re just a bunch of guys on the internet.
The gameplay here is stupid, but hey, at least it’s gameplay, right? Not so. “To hell with weapons and shooting stuff!” thinks Axem, “I’m going to have the player push stuff with their guns!” Yeah, no. We’re in a spaceship. Do you think we’d want to do anything other than destroy other spaceships with our own weapons? But noo, Axem thinks it’s a good idea for us to push boxes of tacos into a Shivan Comm Node (with no-collide enabled). Oh, and what happens when we fail a mission? We have to start again. Take a leaf out of WiH’s book and include checkpoints! I don’t care if your missions are short, I do not want to have to sit through this **** more than once! Seriously, they were done in the greatest campaign of all time and if you want your campaign to have a shred of credibility then at least include them! Oh, and just in case you’re wondering, two wrongs don’t make a right. If we fail a failure, that doesn’t make it a success.
What else? Oh, yeah, Axem doesn’t even finish off the p... the p... “plot”. Sorry, I struggled to apply that word here. Yeah, so we cut to credits in-mission. Perhaps Axem thinks that people are interested enough in the p... the p... -****, I can’t do it- that thing that they’ll want to subject themselves to another campaign to see it through to its conclusion? That seems like too much thought for Axem’s little mind, but it’s a possibility. Oh, and what the **** is up with the numbering? Was that a joke too? Because this campaign is certainly a joke, and not in the way Axem intended it to be!

Right, so that’s all the JAD instalments covered. Shall I touch on Vassago’s Dirge? Yeah, why not? I’ve come this far, I might as well see this ****storm through to the end, even though my hands are shaking at this point and I feel cold. My head’s pounding, but anyway. So Axem takes a different tack and tries to make an ultra serious campaign that doesn’t get received as a parody. Well, he succeeds in that regard, because the utter crap we see in VD can’t be taken as funny in any conceivable way. It’s just crap. Let’s get this straight: Axem tries to add some depth to FS2’s excellent storyline (which definitely doesn’t need it) by suggesting that the Shivans showed the protagonist a vision of Capella’s supernova. Yeah, so? What’s the point? I don’t see it, I don’t think anyone else saw it, I’m curious to see if even Axem knows why the **** he continues to try and make something of his pathetic existence.

The Collector's Edition: Oh, and I can’t believe I almost forgot about this. This is simply all three original JAD turds bundled into one toilet (which, on the plus side, makes them easier to delete). Although the release thread claims 13% new material and new characters, I have to say that whatever differences there were I didn’t notice them. It’s all equally rubbish. Oh, and Axem wastes no time in calling it a RERERERERELEASE. Makes sense, because all the JAD releases have been nothing but the same mind rot in different colour packaging, and this one certainly isn’t any different.

I give JAD one star, I give Axem the finger and I hope never to see his dreaded name ever on the internet again.


tl;dr: the campaigns are ****, Axem sucks hardcore.

Every ship is now colorful like purple, blue and red! Where's the grey from JAD1?

Fighters that go BERSERK? Excuse me while I have a seizure from all those bright explosions and weapons that Axem is forcing down our throats.

The music and story is dumb too, some kind of weeaboo anime rip off. Where is the disco music?

WTF doods. WTF. This isn't the mod I enjoyed playing! We need to get back to basics!
Urutorahappī!!
