Halo Wars

 

Halo 3 was the conclusion of the Halo trilogy, and it supposedly brought the saga of our favorite Master Chief to a close. But apparently Microsoft has decided the Halo universe is going to live on. No, we're not talking about Halo 4. Nor even the...

Halo for RTS Fans. A new take on the popular Halo universe. Multiple interesting missions

Controls are hard to get used to. Units are not as autonomous as you'd like

This is a solid first attempt at an RTS game within the familiar Halo universe.

The Halo franchise is one of the Xbox console's largest and most popular brands. Can this game continue the magic?

A great game which has attention to detail and progressive game-play for an RTS title. The story might be a tad on the over-scripted side though.

Recommended!

Thought you'd finished the fight? Think again!

halo wars review: Halo Wars is a fun strategy outing for fans of the universe, but it feels simplistic and short alongside other games in the genre.

Superb selection of UNSC and Covenant forces, Easy to play once you grasp the controls, Engaging storyline and cutscenes, Good mission variety through campaign mode, Covenant not playable in campaign mode, Flood not playable at all, Small unit counts...

Cnet/ Gamespot aren't giving this game enough credit, sure it isnt perfect but for a strategy game that had heaps of hype and made specifically for the Xbox 360 it is quite good.

Good diversity of Units and upgrade options ; immersive single player campaign ; Impressive Multiplayer

Short campaign ( no campaign for flood/covenant) but probably DLC ; Could be larger scale battles
