As good as it's FPS cousins.
18 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just bought this game and I'm sold on it's beautiful qualities.

Having just played the demo and then purchased the full game I got to say that the game simply rocks for so many reasons. I'm not a huge fan of RTS (Real Time Strategy) games. I'm the kind of guy who mostly plays FPS, racing, and 3D action games but Halo Wars changed my mind upon first viewing. First off the interface is clean, the controls are responsive and it's VERY easy to place units on the map, building resources, and commanding armies. The tutorial does an excellent job of teaching you the ends and outs of strategic mobilization of ground and air troops( though I only got to command ground forces). Even more, it even reminds you if you forget how to place units and build and train armies, very nice. Like it's FPS cousins, the graphics and sound effects are top-notch and with tight control and a story that delves even deeper into the conflict between the good and bad guys in the franchise with beautiful cinematic cut-scenes coupled with superb voice acting and well-written dialog is pure bliss that the Halo series is known for. And with online and co-op play with the possibility of content downloads via Xbox Live, is already sweet frosting to an already delicious cake. That's not all, it's also a turning point in the series: The first Halo game NOT released as a FPS.

With the series' already stellar reputation and rabid fan base, In all aspects, fans of the series are positively sure that in the hands of Ensemble Studios, the finished product is nothing short of amazing and with the release of Halo 3: ODST coming out later this year, Halo fans and FPS aficionados will DEFINITELY have a lot to look forward to this year in what is already a celebrated franchise that's as culturally relevant and revered as Star Wars; the original trilogy, of course.

Halo Wars. Coming Soon in Spring of '09.
