I dont like the normal halo because you do the same things over and over when i got this i was plesently suprised when i got this stratergy game thankfully for me this was my first stratergy the base building is as simple as it can so its a good game if its your first stratergy but if all you do is play stratergys you might find this a bit basic.
great game for a new comer to stratergys.
A while back nobody would have ever associated the word 'Halo' with the RTS genre... not any more. My goodness Halo has now been firmly imprinted on RTS forever because this game is superb. 3v3 Multiplayer is always a good laugh, but in my experience some of the matches can last hours if each team use similar tactics, but it does challenge players to try and outthink and outmanouvre opponents.
You really dont get bored on this, a little frustrated perhaps, but never bored. My friend and I completed this on Legendary in Co-op after maaaaany hours of cursing at our televisions; but despite the fact it was torturously difficult it was very enjoyable and we ended up masteirng the Co-op system and working together like clockwork. At this price, this game is a must buy!
On a side-note, the DLC that is available is also excellent value for money.
When Halo 3 was release, we all thought that the Halo series was funished. Fortuantly, we were wrong. Halo Wars is arguable the best strategy game ever, with its great graphics, amazing features and a different view on the Halo Universe, its a Halo fan must-buy.
The title says it all. This is a poor attempt at bringing strategy to the 360; if its console strategy your looking for, i'd recommend Endwar. Don't buy this just because it wears the Halo label! I was foolish enough to do that and I quickly grew bored within at least a week! The single player campaign is good, but short and after you have completed it, the game becomes shallow and well........ poor!
It seems that the 360 just can't house a great strategy game (Civ Rev is the exception) and this is no exception. The bigger army wins gameplay is really not how things should work and whilst the graphics are good and it provides a decent amount of backstory to the Halo universe, it really doesn't make any great strides in the gameplay department. It is Command and Conquer with Halo units, but the gameplay is poor. It's very easy to complete and despite how much I wanted this to be good, it isn't. No where near the usual quality of a game bearing the Halo name.
