Just finished playing this. I kind of cheated a little by going in a pimped-out Oberth instead of a pimped-out shuttle (I don't get much use out of it, and thought "eh, it's pretty much just an extra-beefy shuttle anyway"). That may have been a bad idea, as the space fights were not difficult at all. Only three encounters of two assimilation probes each in the whole first space section. Took a while to whittle them down, but they never so much as dented my shields. I'm going to retry it in a proper shuttle, and see what the difference is.
The escape section dragged on a bit, and I felt like it could use a bit more of an "outrunning the fireball" type feel (a lot more explosions, and set behind their proximity triggers so they seem to chase the player). As-is they feel too few and too spaced out.
Other than that, it was great! Brilliant map construction. Must of taken you forever, but damn it looked fantastic! The ground part was tense and tough.
*EDIT* I just replayed it in a runabout. Yeah, that was pretty satisfyingly tough. Full MACO set, plus top-tier weapons and special consoles, and I still had to use every ability and perk to stay alive. My fault for thinking the Oberth was just a better shuttle. Guess I just got so used to it being useless in regular missions that I assumed it was that low, LOL!
