I have to agree...

I am not a big game, and frankly I care more about a good story than good graphics and overdone enviroments, but I have to admit...

This is the only game with missions where I had a feeling of being impressed all the way...

Good work... keep doing things this way.

you might be on to something here. im not actually using independent speakers. my HD graphics card plugs directly into a HD TV, so im using the tv's speakers. Im no musical expert but if the custom piece is not be sent through the main speakers but as background music added on top then that might explain it.

ill see if i can play around with the settings, if not ill try and fix up my old speakers and see if that does something.

It's as if you were walking thru a Borg cube, ready to solve some mystery and suddenly Borg Queen, Locutus and Kosst Amojan jumped in front of you at the same time, you shot them all to pieces and the mission was over. Like.... huh?
It makes sense as a conclusion, considering four missions (and more if you include that hints at this earlier in the game) sort of lead to the conclusion that Reman resistance and the Romulans would butt heads.

Once Haakev failed, it became clear that Sela had to step in. She doesn't exactly die though and the puppeteers revealed their strings.

Yea - but all that in last 10 mins of the last mission? Also, Sela was supposed to be antagonistic to Tal Shiar, but now she works with Iconians? It's just confusing. Also, the gates are confusing too - these Romulans have the best travel system of the galaxy and they can't call reinforcements thru it? Why is a random arch between two buildings an iconian gate? How did you survive a torpedo blast standing 5 meters from it? It's just odd.

Kind of. I don't think of it as wrapping things up as much as I do setting up the next series (if it felt like a cliffhangar...)

The Obisek dialogue felt like the proper denouement.

I loved this series, from the cutscenes to what seemed like extremely long missions with so many objectives it almost made me feel overwhelmed. This Series just flat out impressed me.

My only disappointment was the mission reward. I cant complain about the Reman Boff, I guessed that would be the reward and actually looked forward to it, what I have to shake my head at is the choice to make the final reward for the specific mission a mine.......even if its a mine that snares other ships. I thought it was 1.) not up to par with some of the rewards prior to this, especially since this one was the finale. and 2.) I dont use mines. Ima Escort Captain, my ship layout is built for offensive capabilities, a mine in one of my slots would hurt my dps. I can understand if others use them they might not object to it and even be happy with it. But I dont see many mines being used anymore and I just feel as if this reward was ultra specific to a particular gameplay. Patrol rewards or even smaller PVE missions are fine when it comes to that, but to me FEs are on the level of STFs in my eyes. They should drop better loot and have better rewards. It is meant to bring in a bigger playerbase afterall.

Over all good mission.

LOVED:
city
virtual route
Orbital strike
targeting the flying Scorpion fighter
killing the squad by blowning up the parked fighter.

DIDN'T LIKE SO MUCH:
Romulan Medic that took 30 minutes to kill and could leap 2 story buildings

I personally had quite the frustrating boss fight which tainted the rest of the mission, but over all it was ok. I'll try it again tomorrow and see if can do better with it. As of today I liked Collesium(sp) the best.

I felt like a cliffhanger too, but the next set of series is supposed to involve DS9 (as some Dev said somewhere recently), so I very much doubt we'll get any serious wrap-up anytime soon.

I loved this episode. It was AWESOME. The space battle at the end made this episode. Its funny how Hakeev died... with all his importance... he had a light guard and went without any real struggle. Shows you what happens when your just a pawn., but then Sela shows up (BIG SURPRISE) and WOW. Was that a hard fight (had to respawn twice) lol. Then at the end when That Iconian ship showed up and took her into their portal... WOW. That was incredible. The look of The Iconian gate was awesome... and what surprised me was when I went to blow up the land based Iconian Gate... went into the room and saw that Romulan who shouted something and jumped into the gate I was like WOW. Uh oh The Tal Shiar are not done ... yet.

INCREDIBLE JOB CRYPTIC! SIMPLY AMAZING! The Best of The Series!!!

Who said the mission is tying into the next FE series?

There's endgame the devs need to start working on for Season 5.
