Hey, technically you can't since the last mission can always be replayed in the ready room. :P

Sorry, I meant : I didn't complete all of the missions in FS2
The fact is that I hate playing in another difficulty of Insane, so, I can restart a mission many times before completing it :P
But.. in some missions, like the first mission of Tag, I find unthinkable that I am flying a very old vessel with no other missiles that those stupid Tag-A !!   :mad2:  so, I play in Very Easy to equilibrate it :p (and to finish this ****ing mission !  ;) )

Yeah, they slave their weapons into the TAG system with no fail-safe? They give you some of the worst fighters in the GTVA, with a Prom R. A ****ing Prom R. A mother****ing Prom R.

So what happens when those two poorly armed and armored craft die? :p

Oh god that mission was infuriating, especially if you want to keep the Lucidity alive too.
Between ****ty fighter, ****ty weapon, ****ty missiles, and goddamn friendly beam fire....:blah:

The mission was all sorts of dumb, and really most of it was to specifically use to make the mission hard. :\

Me either, although at one stage the mission just didn't progress for me, even after destroying all enemy wings.

The word 'Yo' is only ever to be used as a singular greeting.
It is considered an insult to destroy a perfectly acceptable greeting by misuse. A 'Yo-Yo' is a toy spun from the index finger by small children and enthusiasts,
any such use as a greeting will result in prompt reprimand by any member of the 'African-American' or 'Sri-Lankans-who-think-they're-black' community

That mission is actually deceptively simple even on insane, a lot of players fall foul by being baited out long beyond the AAA range, just try to remember that the Deimos is always going to be more effective on it's broadside and at closer range.

I actually had absolutely no problem with A Game of TAG. Just wasn't one of my favorite missions.

Hehe, the first wave of stupid Basilisk is easy to destroy, but the second wave of 6 Maras (3 attacking alpha 1, 3 attacking alpha 2) is very difficult, because they launch all the missiles they have in their bank ! Anyway, I prefer do it in easy, it protects me from hurting my head with the wall  :D

 
The mission itself is a typical example of the fs2 campaign though, stupid missions with stupid plot devices to hamper the player and advance the uninvolving story.

Even I didn't complete all of the fs2 missions, I think I prefer the fs1 campaign, that has a better story.

IMO the story was more formulaic and straightforward, but much more atmospheric than FS2's.


Cue Battuta.

Hey, me too. :)

I switch to single-fire mode for A Game of TAG, which more or less eliminates the need to rearm.

It was atmospheric in the sense that Mars is atmospheric: it has an atmosphere, but it's not one you want to put up with unless you're a rock.

I found the atmosphere of both games to pick up towards the end of the campaigns. Although FS2 seemed to keep a good atmosphere from the beginning.
