Storyline

Halo Wars is a top down strategy game similar to Age of Empires in its gameplay. It's story is about a ship called the Spirit of Fire that is protecting one of the outer colonies when they follow a covenant ship that attacks the colony to a unknown planet, with a mysterious past. The story follows the characters Captian Cutter, the commander of the ship, professor Anders, the brainiac scientist, and sgt. forge, the sarcastic leader of the marine ground forces. In the game each character is a playable character in a leadership type roll. Each character has their own abilities and special units they can research and use. For example, sgt. Forge can make "Grizzleys" or super tanks. The campaign that takes about 20-30 years before the events on Reach is fun and has good replay value, you can collect skulls for use in "skirmish" local matches. The multiplayer is arguably what makes this game the most interesting. Besides Cutter, Forge, and Anders you can play as three covenant leaders. ... Written by jmburrage

I tell a lie, Halo 4 isn't the worst of the series - This is.
18 December 2014 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

Okay, I enjoy playing games on the Xbox but lately I have found that with all due respect Halo is probably the least good, I like them but when compared to Gears Of War, Alan Wake, the older BioWare RPG's, the Left 4 Dead series and maybe a tonne of others, I just don't think the games really hold up. And I said that Halo 4 was the worst of the series but now I'll admit, I may have exaggerated, Halo Wars is the worst of the series.

I didn't really play enough of this game to get a story synopsis because they turn probably the most popular First Person Shooters on today's market (Or is it COD, I don't know I don't really keep up with this stuff) and turn it into a Real-Time Strategy game. I really don't know the reasoning behind this. Is it because in it's early development that was what Halo was? If so why is the feature to play as both sides left out when it's in other RTS games? But the biggest one is would you really expect this from Halo.

But, with that said - I do like change to the franchise. However when with no warning the gameplay is revamped to a genre that you don't even associate with the previous games, that's when I have a problem. If Bungie wanted to come out with a new franchise of Real-time Strategy then I'd be happy, I'd applaud them. But maybe aside from Too Human this game is the worst on the 360.
